The Wireless Source, through its Charitable Recycling arm, introduced a cost-free mobile phone recycling service and data removal tool for consumers. "Privacy and identity theft are relevant security concerns for mobile phone users looking to retire their mobile handsets" said Bob Sullivan, CEO of the Wireless Source. "Many consumers want to recycle or donate their retired handsets, but want the peace of mind knowing their personal data will be safely removed before it is recycled."
