Welcome to Vodafone Community
Having taken out a new monthly contract and received a new android smartphone, I'm wondering if there is anything useful I can do with the old phone. Is there a system for donating it somewhere?
If you Google "mobile phone charity recycling", you'll find a lot of options. Look for one that promises to wipe the device and see if you can find any feedback about it. Before passing on the device, you should at least remove your account and do a factory reset, of course.
Hey @Riverman1937 Have you thought about donating your phone to us? We’ve pledged to connect 1 million people living in digital poverty by the end of 2022 and you can help by donating your old tech. Since May 2021 we've helped connect 77,256 people. Check out our website for more information on how to donate your unwanted tech.
I've just had a look into this for you @hrym and found this note on the registration form - We can only accept smartphones and tablets that use Android's operating system or Apple iOS/iPadOS, and are ideally no more than 5 years old.
It looks like your Galaxy might be a little too old.
I donated a bunch of old devices to this scheme last year, really easy to do!
Worth mentioning anything you send that they determine isn't compatible will be responsibly recycled
