Boy, do times change. Back in 2004, the Motorola RAZR (in that original silver color, if you remember correctly) was the hot ticket. At about $400 on a two-year agreement, it was the phone that everyone wanted. Fast forward to 2009, and it and the V3M hold the top two spots on a recycling list. Ouch.
Phone recycling company ReCellular has released their annual ten most-recycled handset of the year list, and it's certainly interesting. Besides the RAZR line taking the first two spots, Motorola and LG each take the lead with four devices on the list, followed by a Nokia and a Samsung device each. What's more, seven of the devices were released on Verizon Wireless at some point, while three were on AT&T/Cingular. Some very well known (and reliable) devices are on the list: the Motorola E815, LG VX8300, and Nokia 6010.
Who knows - in a few years, the original Apple iPhone model may be on the list. Has anyone owned one of these devices, and more importantly, are you still using it? Sound off!
