What do you do with your old phone once you get a new one? Do you recycle it, donate it, hide it in a closet or trash it?

I bought a new phone and my old phone is being saved just in case I need to return to it. Plus I have texts from my mom who passed away in February that didn't transfer over and I want to keep those.

I pitch my old phones in the garbage. I only replace them when they break or the internal battery goes bad. So I figure it's time to get a new one. No problem.

I just keep it in some boxes, when my current phone gets broken i make use of it. So i don't throw away any phones.

I toss them if they are broken, otherwise save them, just incase I need to replace it, if I can't get a new replacement quickly.

I usually give it to another member of the family. I tend to replace my phones every 2 years because of the contracts but this might be the first time that I keep it slightly longer.

Usually, I will sell my old gadget and try to recoup some of the costs for my upgrade or replacement. Second-hand phones aren't worth a lot, unfortunately. I always try to sell first on eBay or Gumtree to try and get the best sale. Cash conversation shops pay a lot less for what you can actually get for it.

My old phone is been in the trash right after I got the new phone, The phone that I own now I had it for the last 10 years or more and well. Not that active with the phone.

There's also an issue with quoting where it doesn't show the quote boxes.
