e-Cycle to Donate $1 to JDRF for Every Mobile Phone Recycled in Celebration of America Recycles Day and American Diabetes Month

Mobile phone buyback and recycling company encourages businesses to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by recycling their used mobile devices responsibly in November

Wireless mobile buyback and recycling company e-Cycle LLC has launched an “e-Cycle for Type 1 Diabetes” campaign that will donate $1 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for every mobile phone the company purchases or recycles from Nov. 14 through the 23.

According to e-Cycle CEO, Chris Irion, the goal of the promotion is to help raise awareness and support for two causes that are close to his heart—America Recycles Day (Nov. 15) and American Diabetes Month (November). Irion said that he hopes the campaign will encourage organizations to recycle their used mobile devices responsibly in November and also help support a critical research fund dedicated to finding a cure for the debilitating disease.

“As a father of a child suffering with Type 1 Diabetes, I know first hand the difficult challenges that families face in fighting a deadly and life-changing disease, while also trying to maintain a normal and healthy family life,” Irion said. “e-Cycle was founded on three principals: a love of technology, environmental protection, and charitable giving. Our ‘e-Cycle for Type 1 Diabetes’ promotion touches all three of our passions and I hope businesses will join us in our cause.”

How the “e-Cycle for Type 1 Diabetes” promotion works

1.    Businesses and organizations collect their used mobile devices and mail them to e-Cycle using the company’s pre-paid FedEx shipping labels.  Go to www.e-Cycle.com and click on the “Contact Us” link in the upper right-hand section of the homepage, fill out the form and request a label in the “Questions or Comments” field.

2.    e-Cycle will purchase any devices that are reusable and still have market value and recycle all other phones and accessories at no-charge. Companies can elect to have the check written back to them or as a charitable contribution directly to the JDRF. All sensitive data is completely removed from the devices.

3.    e-Cycle will donate $1 for every mobile phone that the company receives from Nov. 14 through 23, 2011.

4.    All mobile devices and accessories that cannot be reused are shredded on site and sent to an EPA-registered metals refinery where the precious materials are reclaimed for reuse in the production of new products.

The Verizon iPhone Reviews are In! | e-Cycle

The anticipation for the release of the Verizon iPhone was built slowly over the course of many months, with some of us waiting years for this device. Now the waiting has paid off, as the Verizon iPhone has finally been released to the general public.

This has meant a number of things. It offers the iPhone to an entirely new segment of cell phone users who did not want to previously switch providers. More importantly, it also adds a competitor in the iPhone game, which was a segment of the cell phone world that used to be owned by AT&T.

With so much excitement surrounding the release of the Verizon iPhone 4, it would be difficult for it to live up to such lofty expectations. However, the reviews surrounding its release have generally praised the phone, citing its strong call quality as a major upgrade over the AT&T version. Fewer calls are being dropped and users are experiencing a clearer and more enjoyable conversation on this phone.

What else are the reviews saying about the Verizon iPhone 4?

From a hardware standpoint, there isn’t much that differentiates this from the previous AT&T iPhone. Most of the reviews choose to focus on the reliability that the Verizon network brings to the iPhone. Calls are consistently connected on the Verizon iPhone 4, offering users uninterrupted and high-quality phone conversations.

By all accounts, the Verizon iPhone 4 is just as good as its predecessor, if not better. Verizon has managed to address the issue of call quality that has plagued the iPhone in the past, making this version of the iPhone 4 a perfect choice for many consumers.
With the number of positive Verizon iPhone reviews that are out there, you might be thinking of switching over to this exciting new phone. That being said, you will want to sell your iPhone (or any other mobile phone) to not only make some money, but to protect our landfills from electronic waste.

Sell your iPhone to e-Cycle today and rest easy knowing that your data will remain private as well. Plus, it helps to know you’ll be getting a great new phone in the Verizon iPhone 4.

The Verizon iPhone 4 – It’s Here! | e-Cycle

The wait is finally over. For those who could not order it early, the Verizon iPhone 4 is now available to the general public. After years of rumors and speculation, Verizon customers can finally order the iPhone without having to switch networks. Needless to say, this is a big day in the cell phone world.

There are a couple of ways that will allow you to get the Verizon iPhone 4:

  • You can order the iPhone 4 from the Verizon Wireless Online Store and have it shipped to your home.
  • You can purchase the Verizon iPhone at a Verizon Wireless retail store, but these are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to get there early!

With the release of this much-anticipated phone, there are going to be a lot of old mobile phones being discarded. If you are looking to upgrade to the Verizon iPhone 4, be sure to sell your AT&T iPhone or other mobile phone to e-Cycle.

Doing so protects the environment by preventing electronic waste from polluting our landfills. We also hold ourselves to the highest data protection standards in the industry, so the private data and information on your phone will be secure and, of course, removed. This goes without mentioning the fact that the money you make from selling an old cell phone can go towards the purchase of your new Verizon iPhone.

With so many benefits to mobile phone recycling, there is no reason to not do it. Sell your iPhone or mobile phone to e-Cycle and start enjoying the Verizon iPhone 4 today!

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!

iPhone 4 Commercials Play to Verizon iPhone and AT&T | e-Cycle

With the announcement of the Verizon iPhone two weeks gone, Verizon and Apple have already begun promoting their new partnership.

The first Verizon iPhone commercial was posted this past weekend on Verizon’s YouTube channel. The commercial plays upon the years of waiting from iPhone and Verizon customers through a series of ticking clocks, with the last turning to 12:00am and a woman whispering “Thank You”. There is no mention of AT&T or the Verizon Google Android, leaving the commercial strictly Verizon iPhone.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlN3BgsV1nc

A second iPhone 4 ad aired this past weekend, this time put out by Apple. The ad shows two iPhones working side by side on the same processes but with slightly different images and websites viewed. Ending with a side-by-side FaceTime conversation, the iPhones are removed to show both AT&T and Verizon logos followed by “Two is better than one”. In contrast to Verizon’s ad, Apple’s iPhone 4 spot nods to both providers, showing each as equally important to the iPhone 4.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq2HalPB28s

Whether customers stay with AT&T or switch over to Verizon, the iPhone 4 remains the best choice for smartphone in 2011. With the fastest processing system, HD video, 5 megapixel camera and access to the world’s most popular App Store, a Verizon iPhone or AT&T iPhone 4 are both wins.

You can let e-Cycle help you get the most out of your iPhone 4 by selling us your old AT&T iPhone or other wireless device. We’ll be sure your private data is securely removed and your phone is recycled safely, preventing any environmental damage.

Once you’ve got your new iPhone 4, you can use your buyback money to buy apps or iPhone accessories and know you’re doing something good for yourself and the environment.
