What kind of Mobile Phones can be recycled to exchange for an iPad?

Hearts and Minds accepts MOST old mobile phones.

However, for the charity to raise funds and to cover the cost of the iPads we cannot accept donations of phones over 10 years old, or non colour screen mobile phones.

Clues to age - e.g. small brick size phones, non colour screens, phones with antennae.

Examples below:

Mobile phones that will not be accepted 

1. Dummy Mobile phones 

These could be:
... Retail dummy display only models.
... Not real working mobile phone handsets

2. Home land line phones 

These could be:
... Land line house phones.
... Phones that do not take a mobile phone Sim card.

3. Very badly damaged, scrap mobile phones

These could be:
... Mobile phones with no screens or keyboards.
... Just motherboards with no casing

4. Counterfeit / Fake mobile phones 

These could be:
... Chinese made imitation mobile phones
... Most often fake apple iPhones
... Usually take 2 Sim cards

5. Mobile phones from landfills

These are:
... Usually covered in dirt
... Stained and heavily marked handsets 

Could an iPad help your child?

If you live in Britain, simply collect 165 old mobile phones and the Manchester-based charity Hearts and Minds will exchange them for a new iPad.
