    Blackberry Trade-Up Program

    Advertisement



    I'm sure a few of you here have experience with the program. How does it work? How much have you gotten for your old devices?

    I'd like to get the skinny in the event I want to upgrade before my AT&T contract is up.

    I was thinking more along the lines of personal experience, but thanks.

    I don't think anyone has used it...it's better to just sell it. You get more money for your device.

    In my opinion just keep the device or sell it off, because the 50 -75 bucks off isn't work the time when you can probably just over 100 selling on ebay or craigslist.

    Wow, those guys really did a job on copying Research in Motion's website look and feel.

    If you use them just be aware you're (apparently) NOT dealing with Research in Motion. The website is owned by a company called Tradeups, Inc. in Duluth, Georgia. Info for their domain is at http://www.networksolutions.com/whoi...n=tradeups.com

    Never used them, I suppose such a service would be fine if you don't want to deal with selling your used Blackberry on Pinstack or eBay or Craigslist. Personally I'd rather just deal directly with someone vs. using a wholesaler like these guys.

    I would totally agree with you on this one. I looked up some of my Blackberry devices just to get an idea of how much it's trade value is, and quite frankly the website has a horrible trade-in value.

    Good to know. I was curious if perhaps the site offered a better return over trying to sell it privately.

    Actually, RIM endorses this program. If you go to the Blackberry Owners Lounge on their website, they actually link to it.

    See: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/ownersl...ks/tradeup.jsp

    You need to sign in to view the page..


    "
    Turn your wireless device into a shiny new BlackBerry smartphone.

    The BlackBerry® Trade Up Program lets you purchase a sleek new BlackBerry smartphone by trading in your current wireless device – even if it’s not a BlackBerry smartphone. You’ll get fair market value for your existing device, which can then be used towards the purchase of the BlackBerry smartphone of your choice.

    Seems like a great way for corporations to get rid of those piles of junk sitting in dark cornerns in the IS department.
