I had a phone that was all but destroyed by my daughter’s fiancée. It was one I purchased and provided for him, a few years ago, but ultimately became broken. I ended that line in my plan and almost through it away.

I did consider fixing it and reselling it, but the resale value wasn’t there. I decided I wasn’t putting anymore money into it, so I almost through it away. Then, I saw an ad for exoATM, so I decided to try it. Here’s their PR info that I copied from their website:
