Samsung Reclaim™
An Eco-Friendly Overachiever

Samsung Reclaim™, exclusively from Sprint, is a joint initiative between Sprint and Samsung to design a mobile handset that is both eco-friendly and a feature-rich messaging phone. Reclaim’s hardware is made from bio-plastic materials extracted from corn, making 80 percent of the phone recyclable. Reclaim’s eco-friendly features extends to its packaging and support materials, which include a link to an online user manual in lieu of a print version, use of soy-based ink on enclosed printed materials, a phone box and phone tray made from recycled materials, and an Energy-Star approved phone charger.  

Samsung Reclaim, with access to America’s most dependable 3G network, slides open vertically to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard and is outfitted with Sprint’s One Click carousel for easy, one-touch navigation.
