They also offer a device buy-back program where your end of life devices may be eligible for device buy-back, giving you a “green” upgrade to the next generation device. Their certified refurbished devices are also an option for purchase or rent, where devices perform like new to bridge the gap during a tech refresh. There are also a variety of options for battery recycling, depending on location.
