What to do with old Nokia (dumb) phones?

Postby slmkhoo » Sat Jan 16, 2016 8:25 pm

We have 2 old Nokia (dumb) phones which we want to discard. We haven't used them for quite a while, but they were working fine at the time we retired them. Do they have any value/use? It seems a great waste to just chuck them.

Give it away? It seems that for NS boys some camps require them to use the old Nokia non camera phones.

If anyone knows someone who wants them, let me know.

These are 2G phones?
Singapore is phasing out 2G in 2017. They will soon be useless.

Slmkhoo, I use my old Nokia candy bar as a alarm clock. Couldn't bear to throw it away. :love:

You could give them to your children for use as a starter phone.

My kids are teenagers and already moved on to smartphones. But if anyone is interested to get them for their younger kids, pm me!
