Protect Your Bubble’s Tips for Your Old Smartphone Once You Get a New One This Holiday
Gadget insurance brand shares ideas for your old smartphone once you get a new one
ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
Before throwing away your old phone after you upgrade to a new device, consider alternatives. Gadget insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, lists tips for uses for that old phone.
Sell it – Depending on what model has been replaced, there may still be some value left in the phone. Popular one like iPhone 4s and Samsung Galaxy S2 will likely sell on eBay.com for more than you might think.
- Recycle it – There are plenty of facilities out there that will take your old smartphones and recycle them, including EarthWorks. Avoid throwing the device away, as many smartphones contain toxic metals that can be harmful to the environment. Before recycling the device, remember to wipe the phone clean from any private or sensitive information, and be sure to back up any files, photos, music, and notes on the device to the iCloud, your computer, or storage drive.
- Use it as a music player – The phone may not be good for calls any longer, but it makes for a great music player. Hook it up to a docking station with speakers or use it with headphones while you work out. Also, apps like Pandora will still be accessible via wifi, so now you can play your music, but keep your new phone in your pocket.
- GPS navigator – Another tip is to keep the old phone in your car to serve as a GPS navigation device. You’ll be glad you have it if you’re in need of directions. Not to mention that it’s small enough to fit in the center console or glove compartment.
