More than 500 EcoATM machines that dispense cash for your old phone to be deployed by year-end

The process is not as magical as it sounds, of course - you have to hook it up first to one of the various diagnostic cables provided, then the machine grabs it in its steel paws, and takes a picture to examine the external condition it is in, but in the end you should get a bit of cash for your clunker. If it is a very old phone, you'll likely get almost nothing, but the machine will take it, and then it will go into an electronics recycling plant...

These machines are nice but let’s get real, you aren’t going to see one near you till about 2015. For now your best alternative is to mail your cell phones to technollo.com. They offer better pricing, free shipping and department of defense data wiping processes that ensure your phone is recycled properly. Or if you want to talk to a human call us at 888-242-1110 and we’ll be happy to help you sell us your smart phones.
