Mitch and I get an upgrade on our cell phones every two years (it's in our contract). We've had our old phones in a box under our bed for quite some time, meaning to take them to Staples and drop them in the recycling box. Yesterday, I heard that there's a need for old cell phones in Iraq for soldiers to use to call home and speak to their family. I'm mailing ours off today in a postage paid envelope.
