Typical American family has old cellphones lying around

If you have cellphones in your home that you don't need anymore, you can donate them to Cell Phones for Soldiers, an organization that provides free communications service to active members of the military and veterans. Another solution is Verizon's HopeLine, which donates used handsets to victims of domestic violence.
If you do plan on either donating or trashing an old cellphone, Lookout suggests backing up the data, erasing the phone and removing the SIM card, if applicable.

I personally keep at least one old cell phone lying around since I can only renew every two years and refuse to pay the crazy insurance prices by my carrier.

The article should read, "Typical human family has old cell phones lying around." I have 5...1 is probably screwed, 1 is locked, 1 needs repairing and 2 are still good.. And they're in no way a junk...i just keep them as a security and yes, as memories too.

Funny you should show the BB Storm as I still have one lying around along with the BB Storm 2. Then there's: Motorola Droid 1 (looks nice in the collection) Motorola Droid Bionic (backup smartphone) Motorola T720 flip phone (first cell phone) Motorola StarTac (brother's but keeping it for it's historical significance) Motorola Razr V3m (basic backup phone) HTC Thunderbolt (programming) HTC Eris (programming) Samsung Droid Charge (makes an awesome alarm clock with the dock) Samsung V205 flip phone (second cell) Nokia 8890 (keeping it around due to the awesome slider).
