Make sure you do this one thing before donating your iPhone for reuse this Earth Day
On this Earth Day, many of you probably have a couple of old cellphones lying around that you’d like to donate or recycle. But, many of the donated iPhones have to be scrapped, because the “Find my iPhone” feature was not disabled, and the phone is not reusable. The Wireless Alliance in Lafayette collects thousands of used devices every month that could be reused. But a used iPhone cannot be activated y a new user if the activation lock, which is the find my iPhone feature, is enabled. This feature stops a thief, or a recycler, from reactivating your phone with a new phone number.
