Default What to do with these phones?

I bought an AT&T Captivate a few months ago and still have my VM Optimus. Neither are activated. I use my T-Mobile S2 for everything on the go (no need for an mp3 player, particularly as I only stream Pandora) so have no real "need" for either but I still want to keep them!

Any recommendations on what to do with them?

You could try selling them for some bucks, i don't know if they will go for that much but you could try, you might want to keep one just as a backup though, it is always nice to have a phone in case your main device breaks or something of the sort.

Def keep a backup, but other than that root them and customize them to the Max!

You can learn a lot about android that way, and don't have to risk your main phone

I concur with DC and Rx, keep one as a backup or root it and play with it. You can gain more insight on how android is setup and pass on your knowledge about it here!

I use my old phone to test app updates to see if I like them before updating them on my main phone.
