The pleasure of a new cell phone

I have named my new cell-phone, Mokie. This new cell-phone has many features I appreciate, like not dropping my calls every five minutes and it uses a volume of sound that humans, instead of only elephants, can hear. 

It has been nearly eight years since I purchased a new cell-phone, so I don't feel all that horrible.

Question: Suggestions on what to do with my old cell-phone that does not involve sending it to the landfill?

Send it to overseas soliders?

Donate it to a local women's shelter so they can convert it to an "emergency" phone?

Thanks, good ideas. I noticed a lot of the "donate a cell phone" sites send the cell phones to recycling and use the money to buy phone cards...I'll have to think on that.

Good for you. I hope you and Mokie have many good, functional, non-call-dropping years together.

I had a moment so I googled for a place near you:

You're welcome!
It's all part of my plan to become the golden Flist member of DOOM.
