Old Cell Phones Can Help Deployed Soldiers and Their Loved Ones
Posted on: 12/21/2012

If you have an old cell phone lying around in a drawer or a glovebox, a regional telephone service provider has a great idea about what to do with it.
 
Virginia-based nTelos Wireless, which has several towers in Washington County and widespread sales and service across West Virginia, is taking part in a national program called Cell Phones for Soldiers. nTelos is collecting unused cell phones at its retail stores to benefit U-S military personnel around the world.  
 
nTelos CEO Conrad Hunter says it's the second year for the phone collection campaign, designed to ease the burden of deployment for military members and their families. The used phones themselves are not being re-used. Rather, funds generated by recycling them are used to purchase international phone minutes for deployed servicemen and loved ones.

You can drop off your gently used phones between now and December 31st at the nTelos retail store on Grand Central Avenue in Vienna. There's also a drop-off location at the Barlow branch of the Washington County Public Library.

Military personnel and families can request a free international calling card at:
