"Wirefly and its parent InPhonic are together one of the largest distributors of wireless products in America today. As an industry leader with millions of customers and online shoppers, Wirefly recognizes that we have an unparalleled opportunity to give back to the community and educate consumers about the positive impact the wireless industry can have on environmental and social issues," said Brian Westrick, president of Wirefly. "Donating a retired cell phone won't cost Wirefly customers anything, but the value of their donated phones will be tremendous."
As opposed to other cell phone recycling programs that tout large proceeds to charitable endeavors but provide only small percentages of trade-in values, the new Wirefly trade-in program will provide the customer's chosen charity the entire dollar amount as indicated on the website. Current popular trade-in values include the Palm Treo 650 at $59.00, the Motorola KRZR at $73.00 and the LG Chocolate The LG Chocolate refers to a fashion phone, of which there are two variations:
