Cleaning and organizing my closet yesterday, I came across my two old cell phones that I have been hanging onto to donate to a domestic violence victim’s organization. I just didn’t know how to wipe them clean of the phone set up data information, so I have been “sitting” on them.
Well….I found the site below, I took the phones to a Verizon Wireless store and the dude wiped them both clean in five minutes flat, and I mailed them out yesterday!
Check it out…..
If you have old cell phones that you are not using, please considering donating them to this cause. It couldn’t be easier start to finish.
