Old cell phones that no longer seem worth keeping may actually be valuable to someone else and bring you cash. Many cell phone recycling companies now pay cash or exchange merchandise for old phones, and some even provide a prepaid mailing label and a box to make shipping easy. Motorola and Nokia phones can fetch up to $20. For more information, go to, http://www.recyclingadvantage.com/.
