Recycle Your Mobile Phone and Recharge Your Wallet: Walsh Wireless Announces Cellular Buyback Program

Leading Provider of Wireless Solutions Offers Palpable Incentives for Businesses to Recycle Mobile Phones

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2009) - Been eyeing the latest and greatest smart phone -- ready for an upgrade? Walsh Wireless Solutions, a leading wireless solutions innovator and exclusive Sprint partner, announced the launch of its cellular buyback program today, aimed at providing businesses of all sizes with a simple and efficient way to retire their old, tired cellular phones, turning them into cash and doing right by the planet in the process.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans create nearly 65 tons of waste each year from throwing away used cell phones -- that's approximately 125 million phones that are still likely in good working condition that are simply discarded in a landfill. If not disposed of properly, the metals from those cellular phones become toxic over time and leak into the environment through corrosion, causing a series of hazardous issues. As many of these elements do not decompose, the level of harmful toxins increases and so does the potential damage. Mobile phones need to be disposed of with care and with the increasingly limited space in U.S. landfills, throwing away phones when you could be turning them into dollars just doesn't make good business sense.

"As a family man, I believe it's paramount to strive to make a difference in the world -- especially when it comes protecting to the environment," said Chris Walsh, CEO and co-owner of Walsh Wireless Solutions. "I have a personal investment in assuring my children's future. Assisting in the recycling of old cell phones to reduce toxic landfill waste is important to Walsh Wireless. It is our hope that by making it easy and offering businesses tangible incentives, they too will see the value in doing the right thing and take steps to recycle their phones."

Walsh Wireless makes it easy and efficient to recycle used cellular devices, offering a one-step process to generate either cash or a credit toward the purchase price of another. To participate, businesses need only to turn in their old mobile devices and Walsh Wireless recycles it for them. Users can select the payment method of their choice: check or a credit to their wireless account. Walsh Wireless is committed to buying back virtually any used cell phone -- regardless of carrier and in any quantity -- from companies of all sizes, individuals to Fortune 500 companies.

Walsh Wireless takes the privacy and security of if its buyback program participants seriously, erasing all personal data and residual memory from each phone upon receipt, the device's software and data are then reset as if they were a new. The company is also offering a 'Best Price Guarantee' in conjunction with the program, which promises competitive fair market pricing. Participants will receive the best price offered for their buyback phone or receive 200% of the price difference.
