11 Things To Do With Your Old iPhone (CBS Boston)
NEW YORK (AP) — In case you haven’t heard by now, Apple is unveiling its latest iPhone on Wednesday.
That leaves the question: What should you do with your old one?
The new phones will join some 244 million iPhones sold since the first one launched in 2007.
Some have been lost or stolen. Some of us are still hanging on to our old gadgets in some futile attempt to resist the constant upgrade cycle that technology companies are forcing on us.
But it’s fair to say that millions of iPhones are languishing in desk drawers or gathering dust.
Here are a few things to do with yours to keep it from meeting that fate once you buy the iPhone 5.
1. Give it to your kids so they stop taking yours…
2. …or to your mom so she can finally see the light
3. Use it as a teeny-tiny iPad
4. Donate to charity
5. Alarm Clock
6. Sell, sell, sell!
7. Trade in at GameStop!
8. Stream music
9. Keep as a backup in case you lose/break your fancy new one.
10. Use as a camera.
11. Recycle with Apple
