Question about Limited Edition Trade-up

I'm qualified to trade my Dev Alpha for the Limited Edition and already received the shipping label. However, before I package the device, I realized I need the device to test my VoIP app. It can't be tested on simulator because audio hardware is required. My app should be done in around 4 weeks. My questions are:

 

1. Am I allowed to keep my dev alpha until I finish my app without losing my trade-up qualification?

 

2. If so, will the shipping label still be valid after 4 weeks?

 

Thanks in advance.

If you dont ship your dev alpha out, they wont ship the LE to you. I think they do have a timeframe.

Re: Question about Limited Edition Trade-up

Probably contact the shipper. LE will not ship for 6-8 weeks, so you could be out of a device for that time frame. RIM has suggested to wait in shipping the dev alphas until the LE are planned to ship. So worse case, you would be out of a device ~1 week.

Thanks.

I have received the UPS shipping label already. Does the label have any expired date?

Contact the shipper. Likely not, but best to ask them.

Re: Question about Limited Edition Trade-up

As mentioned you will not receive your Limited Edition device until you return the dev alpha however because the ship time on the Limited Editions is still a little out you don't need to return the dev alpha right away you can with until end of Feb. if you want.

 

The shipping labels will not expire.
