Why is Wireless Cell Phone Data Security So Important? | e-Cycle

It’s easy to get swept up in the bells and whistles that come with a brand new cell phone; so much so that you don’t consider what might happen to your old phone. Recycling cell phones comes with a lot of benefits, but not all mobile phone recycling companies are the same when it comes to a vitally important aspect of the process: data security.

When you sell your iPhone or other mobile phone with e-Cycle, your organization or business is guaranteed the industry’s most thorough and secure process for removing personal data.

When you get rid of an old phone, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all the data you have stored on it just goes away. A company’s recycled phones could be full of confidential data (emails, phone numbers, documents, applications) that can become a problem if placed into the wrong hands. That’s why it is important to ensure that your data is protected and, ultimately, completely removed.

e-Cycle uses a high-security work environment and processes that have been meticulously designed to maintain the utmost protection of your confidential cell phone data. In other words, we do not take the security of your cell phone’s data lightly. We understand that people sell old iPhones and other mobile devices for a variety of reasons, but everyone wants their data to be secure.

That is why we hold ourselves to the highest data protection standards in the industry. With e-Cycle, you will never have to worry about your data’s security. Instead, you can spend that time thinking about how you helped the environment by recycling your old cell phone.

Complete data security – just another reason to sell your old mobile phones to e-Cycle!

Verizon iPhone Pre-Orders Begin on February 3 | e-Cycle

News continues to trickle in about when consumers will be able to get their hands on the long awaited Verizon iPhone 4, with the most recent news circling around the ability to pre-order the Verizon iPhone through the online Apple Store.

Current Verizon wireless customers will be able to pre-order the iPhone 4 starting tomorrow, February 3rd at 3am EST (set those alarms!). Pre-ordering is available through Apple’s online store and on Verizon’s website. Delivery and in-store pick-up begins on Thursday, February 10th. Non-Verizon customers will have to wait to order the iPhone 4 with online pre-ordering beginning Wednesday, February 9th.

Those who don’t pre-order their new iPhone should realize buying the iPhone 4 in-store is unlikely. High demand for the iPhone in both Apple and Verizon stores is expected and phones will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Other than camping outside Verizon and Apple stores, it seems pre-ordering online is the best bet to guarantee there is an iPhone 4 with your name on it.

After ordering your Verizon iPhone, head over to e-Cycle’s sell your iPhone page to make room for your new purchase. We’ll show you how to recycle your old AT&T iPhone safely and securely and get a few bucks back in your pocket. Happy iPhoning!
