Donate your old android phone to reTails, see cute cat pictures??
Do you have an unused, but still mostly functional Android phone laying around? reTails can use it! As long as the phone is Android and has Wifi capability (which virtually all do) and a built-in camera, we would like to take your old phone and give it new life as a network camera in our adoption center.
A smartphone, even an older model is actually a very powerful handheld computing device! This is still in the experimental phase, but if it works, we could be able to use these cameras to stream pictures or even video from inside our free-roaming cat enclosures. On a more practical level, they can also be used to help us secure our adoption center doing duty as security cameras. It doesn't matter what wireless carrier, or version of Android as long as it has Wifi and a camera. What if the screen is cracked? That's okay, as long as the screen can still be read mostly. Sorry, we can't use iPhones, Windows phones or any other phone that isn't based on the Android operating system.
Although we will wipe all phones clean of data (if possible), please make sure to erase all your personal information from the phone and remove any screen locks or PIN codes. Charge your battery if necessary, or at least hook the phone up to the charger, power up the phone, then follow the instructions here:
If possible, please include the charger. You can drop off your Android phone to our adoption center in Washington Square Mall when we're open: Friday 6-9pm, Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday noon-5pm. If you would prefer to mail them, make sure to wrap them in padding and send to:
P.O. Box 482
Greenfield, IN 46140
Any phones that prove unsuitable, or that we can't use for some reason will either be donated, or recycled. If possible, we'll try to wipe all data before sending the phones off, but cannot guarantee it, so please try to do it yourself.
