10 Things that you can do with your old phone

Hello Readers! Today i am going to tell you about 10 Things that you can do with your Old phone.So let we start.

1.Recycle it

With 130 million devices discarded each year in the US alone, so-called ‘e-waste’ is filling landfill sites with toxic materials, such as lithium batteries. Services like Envirofone (www.envirofone.com) will recycle damaged phones, extracting valuable components so they can be reused.








2.Sell it

If you own your phone outright, there is no
reason why you can’t sell it on. Many networks will
knock money off new contracts for your old phone,
while on-line services will pay cold, hard cash for
your unwanted device.




3.Hack it

Being able to root your phone is one of Android’s biggest selling points, but for
beginners this can be a daunting task. Rather than experimenting on your premium
handset that is still under contract, practice hacking on an unwanted, last-gen device.






4.Save the rainforest

Donate your phone to Rainforest Connection and they turn it into a listening device in the Amazon. It will alert rangers when it hears
illegal tree clearing. Visit https://rfcx.org for more info.





5.Turn it into a universal remote

Even the oldest Android device can be turned into a remote for your entertainment system. If your device has an IR blaster, it likely has this feature built-in, or you can download Smart IR Remote.




6.Donate it to science

Berkley University’s free BOINC app harnesses your phone’s processing power as
part of a powerful network of computers studying diseases, predicting global warming
and discovering pulsars. Best of all, BOINC only runs on a fully charged phone connected to Wi-Fi so won’t waste your battery or data.


7.Make it kid friendly

Over 50 per cent of children under eight are now able to work their
parent’s device, so why not turn your phone into a touch-screen toy? Add parental controls and a child-friendly interface with Kids Place or Zoodles’ Kids Mode from the Google Play store.









8.Build a DIY smart car

To get your very own Android Auto on the cheap, fit your last-gen phone to your dash with a goo.ey skin, power it via the cigarette lighter with an adapter, and – voilĂ  – you have a built-in satnav and MP3 player.


9.Game on

Using Chromecast it’s easy to use an old phone as a remote control for playing
Android games on your TV.However, you can also run emulators, like DraStic DS Emulator, on your old phone to play your favourite old-school console games.









10.Mine Bitcoin

Apps like Easy Miner make it easy to generate so-called ‘cryptocurrencies’ on your device, but the amount of power required to run the necessary algorithms will drain your battery quickly, making this an ideal task for an old phone you can leave on charge.
