I can get a bunch of cordless home phones. Does anyone know what grade the board inside the phone is? I'm curious if it's worth the time and trouble of tearing them down.

it varies from phone to phone.

in most cases I have run across, it is usually peripheral grade or lower

Yes, I'd say about 2/3 of what I've recycled are peripheral.
The remainder being midgrade or telco.
If they work sell them used or take the rather inflated 20% original value as a write off and donate it if it won't sell.
Anything dead is worth taking apart. They're fairly easy to pull down to raw boards.

Ok I've tore down 10 or 15 of them lately. Easy to break down just didn't know what the boards would bring since it's pretty much bare except for an IC chip or two lol. Who still uses a home phone nowadays anyway lol

Speaking on portable home hand sets As long as it has IC chips, no steel, and the Charger base contacts (and no giant steel or lead weight) it will almost always be at least peripheral. Don't remove those connectors, even the silver magnetic ones, they're nickel and keep you in the peripheral class.

I still have a land line and will till I die. If you want to talk to me call me at home. The only person that has my cell phone # is my wife and the ONLY time she has called me is when she couldn't reach me by land line at work and there was a problem at home. Twice in 7 year's. Old school I guess.

The board from the Charger will also often be peripheral, again with the contacts intact.
These about 50/50

Remote controller boards range from low grade to peripheral on average and in some very rare ;not from a free box) cases telco, or better. Most are midgrade or peripheral, very old and very cheap Ines tend to be midgrade where high end programmable ones can push into telco.
The highest end ones can pass into cell class but there they're worth more as dead remotes on the open market so it's loosing money, think Logitech and Honeywell here.
