I have recently gotten engaged, and me and my fiance are in the process of moving in. She told me I have to "clean up" and get rid of some things (she's right, lol). I have these old cell phones and I wondered if there might be people who collect them. I have thought about selling them on Ebay, but I doubt I would get anything.
If anyone has ideas, please let me know.
These are the phones:
Audiovox PPC-6600 / PPC-6601 / XV6600 (HTC Harrier) Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)
Samsung SCH-i600 / SP-i600 Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)
UTStarcom PPC-6700 / XV-6700 / HTC Apache Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)
Motorola Q Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)
Motorola Q Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)Current Phone: HTC Trophy
Device: Zune 120
Audiovox Thera 2032, Samsung SCH-i600, UTStarcom XV-6700, HTC XV6800, Motorola Qm, Kin TwoM, Samsung Omnia II

Budule hit the nail on the head. There are plenty of charitable organizations that distribute devices to people that are down on their luck, just out of rehab/jail, etc or military personnel that need a way to stay in touch. There's no excuse to hoard old devices!
Congrats on the engagement BTW!

I think the 6700 on Verizon is one that did not require a data plan, so it might be a selling feature on ebay....

I would trade them in when getting a new phone. Maybe it's more complicated in carrier controlled markets like the US, but here in Europe it's becoming more common with businesses that sell both new and old phones, and they usually offer a little more for trade-ins than they do when you simply sell to them.
