Achieving the Singapore 1000 & Singapore SME 1000 Award
Force 21 is honoured to receive the Singapore…25 August 2020
Recently I was clearing some of my old stuff when I came across a box of old mobile phones that have been accumulated over the years. Its quite a large box. This got me thinking about how frequently we change our mobile phones these days.
On an average, I change a phone every 1-2 years. This is largely due to the way mobile phone plans work in Singapore, where your telco provider will give a hefty discount every 1-2 years on the latest mobile phones, if you commit to a 2-year contract renewal. This has been the way it is in Singapore for as long as I can remember, given my large box of old mobile phones.
So, what happens to the old phones?
Regardless of what you do with your old phone, remember to securely erase the data to prevent data theft. A simple format or factory reset will not be enough as the data can still be easily recovered.
At Force 21, we offer products that will guarantee the secure erasure of your devices. Contact us for more information.
