Phones / Tablets for refugees

I figure there are a lot of older model phones in the US that still work and maybe could be given to refugees but might need some repairs before hand.

Do we have users who have experience with moding phones and would be interested in setting up a business helping with the relief effort in Bangladesh.?

It’s a great idea and a good thinking and indeed an amazing thing to help refugees.
Here are some challenges with Phones. The majority of third world countries out there use GSM phones, which means Unlocked GSM compatible only phones will work. Tablets are always good as we don’t have to worry about the SIM usage. Other aspects such as declaration and customs for electronics needs to be taken care. I am sure a company that’s partnering will know and have a great experience in handling the same.
