Tip:

We recommend that you remove the personal information on your phone, although it is not required. In the recycling process, the memory on the phones is destroyed and reusable materials are recycled before they are resold. If you want to remove the information from your phone, you can consult your cellphone user manual, manufacturer’s web site or contact one of our processors The Wireless Alliance to learn how to erase your data.
