YOU are correct. What I was trying to say is that "phone design" was separated from the carrier. From what I remember, I think Apple originally when to Verizon, but Verizon said "No, we want control of how the phone operates, features, etc" ATT was approached next and agreed that Apple would have 100% control of design of the device partially because Apple could bring such a highly demanded product to a carrier. I have to admit, the phone was revolutionaly from "almost" everything before it. It is similar to a situation where Apple goes to Comcast and says they want to build the next Set Top Box, but Comcast gets no control over any of the design and functional aspects for the box. It would be a win for Apple, and a win for the consumers.

I am sure this happens in other types of recycling centers as well.. In our office, we are constantly going through PC, rack servers, monitors, etc. Some of it only a few years old. While there might be value in getting money for them, it is actually a great thing that there are companies that will come in and take them away for free. Sure they have value, but the labor involved in recouping those costs are just not worth it at our pay scales. In addition, shelf space in our office has value too.
