USA – 62% of Americans hold onto one specific piece of old junk: cell phones. Most people apparently don’t know what to do with the old clunkers, and some other people are worried about their personal data.

A report by mobile security platform Lookout, says 10% of households have four or more phones they aren’t using.

If this applies to you, drop your old ringers off at Verizon. They donate the phones to charity.
