Cell Phones For Soldiers

To a military family, a phone call home is priceless. The Armed Forces Services Exchange operates telephone call centers in Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and other countries and aboard ships – anywhere service members are deployed. All of these locations stay busy around the clock to keep up communication between deployed troops and their loved ones. But these phone calls are expensive. A phone call from overseas can cost $7 to $8 per minute.

How Can I Help?

Cell Phones for Soldiers addresses an everyday emotional need that everyone has experienced: the imperative to phone home, to hear a familiar voice while far away. DSA is proud to be a sponsor of this program, and we encourage you to help our troops by donating your used cell phones today using the enclosed pre-paid shipping envelope or by sending an email to

Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist from Norwell, Mass., with $21 of their own money. Their goal is to help our soldiers serving overseas call home by providing prepaid phone cards. Since 2004, their non-profit charity has raised almost $2 million in donations and distributed more than 500,000 prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas.

All donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone enough to provide an hour of talk time to soldiers abroad. Approximately half of the phones collected will be reused the ultimate form of recycling. Functional phones are reconditioned and reprogrammed before being sold to wholesalers from more than 40 countries. Phones that cannot be resold are dismantled and recycled. It's easy to protect the planet and our environment by simply collecting obsolete cell phones and recycling them.
