Question Cellphone dilemma...what to do?

I am on the Verizon Network and received my iPhone which leaves me with an LG VX1000 voyager phone with nothing to do.

I am curious about unlocking it to use with a European SIM card when we travel to Europe but it being CDMA based, I am not sure that it would work in Europe...any thoughts?

Any other suggestions on how I could use the LG...it's still in very nice condition.

Thanks to anyone who responds!

Ebay will give you 30USD for it.

It won't work in Europe unless it's one of Verizon's "world phones".

Best Buy will recycle any electronics for free.

You could donate your phone to a local organization that helps victims of domestic violence. Cell phones without a service plan can be used to dial 911.

Sell it, give it away, or recycle it as an alarm clock.
