Selling Old Cell Phone

When I bought my Blackberry... they said Blackberry would buy back my old cell phone.  Where do I go to do that?

Who is the "they" that told you that. 

 

I would go to "them" first.

Verizon said there was a place on the blackberry website that they will give you a quote for your old cell phone and you can send it in to them for market value.  Does anyone know where that place on the website is??  thanks.

Re: Selling Old Cell Phone

Nope, never heard of it. As far as I know, RIM doesn't buy cell phones.

 

You might go back to Verizon and ask again what they meant.

 

There are places on Forums where you can sell your BB yourself.

It was a buy back program on the blackberry website.  I found it once, not I can't find it again.  They will buy your old cell phone when you purchased a blackberry.

Hello,

 

You are asking in a thread from 2009...it may have been true then, or it may not. It may be true now, or it may not. As far as I know, there currently is no buy-back program in place (I could be wrong, I just have heard nothing about that...). I can't predict what the future will hold.

 

Good luck!
