What happens to used cell phones? Do they get shipped to developing countries that need them?

    Many used cellphones are refurbished and resold. For example, the Michigan-based company ReCellular collects old cellphones refurbishes, resells, and responsibly resells them to customers in over 40 countries. Used phones can be donated for use by soldiers overseas and people in developing countries. A quick web search turned up a number of companies that collect and resell or donate old phones.

    Millions of cell phones – some sources say 5 million, others say over a billion each year – are just thrown away.
