Donate a phone!

You can donate a phone by following these five easy steps.

STEP 1: Erase any data from the phone and disconnect the phone’s service with your wireless provider.
STEP 2: Remove any storage cards and SIM cards from the phone.
STEP 3: Power off the phone.
STEP 4: Place your wireless phone from any service provider along with the battery, charger and any accessories you wish to donate in a plastic bag. Find a Verizon Wireless retail store near you to drop your wireless phone and accessories in a HopeLine bin.
STEP 5: Don’t have time to go to a store? Pack your wireless phone, battery, charger and accessories in a secure package. Print out Verizon's pre-paid mailing label and just drop in the mail.

HopeLine is an award-winning, well-established program, which was created to make a positive difference in the areas of domestic violence awareness, prevention, and victim recovery. When customers donate their phones to the HopeLine program, they can be confident that their wireless phone will be recycled or refurbished properly, and proceeds will be used to generate funds for various programs to assist victims of domestic violence and the organizations that support them.

The HopeLine program collects no-longer-used wireless phones and equipment in any condition from any service provider. Used phones are then either refurbished or recycled.

With funds raised from the sale of refurbished phones, Verizon Wireless donates wireless phones and airtime to victims and provides funding and other contributions to nonprofit domestic violence shelters and prevention programs across the country.
