    I just put them away and forget about them. I also gave some away a couple of times. What do you do?

    I use to save them too but then opened a seller account on eBay and ended up selling 90% of my old phones. They sell easy if you don't mind letting them go for a low price

    Use to save them(don't know why). Past three I've either sold or traded in.

    I've given them all away. I think that others should know and enjoy iPhones, iPads, and iPods as much as I do. Especially if I know they would never purchase one for themselves.

    Sell them for the next iPhone or pass them down to family members (if they haven't upgraded).

    Sell them and put those funds toward newer tech so as not to get beaten by my violent wife! Lol

    A family member will usually start politicking & pushing me to get an upcoming iPhone so that he or she can have my current one....

    Traded in my 4S to VZ for $100
    Sold my old BB Storm2 for $20 recently.
    Still have my old Palm Centro & Palm Treo 600 and probably my Treo 300 is somewhere in a drawer.

    Good Luck

    I use them as backup devices. If I am going to a party or someplace where I might lose or spill something on it, I'll switch the sim into an older iphone and use that instead.

    I heard of that store on the internet, there are ton of those here in Singapore as well, and I do make efforts to sell some of my devices through those sites to recoup some of the expenses.

    Give it to family members or sell it but that's only when no one else wants my phone and I need a bit of extra cash

    I'm going to start collecting apple products. So once I upgrade to iphone 6, I'm going to keep my iphone 5. And of course later on in the future I'd also be collecting apple products that I never had for collecting purposes only.

    It depends. I usually sell my old phones now, but I used to smash them for fun

    Keep one or two for emergency back up. Most older ones don't work, so I throw those away.
