Default So I got the 9800- keep the 9000 as a back up or?

Please Login to Remove!

What do you think a Bold 9000 goes for on the black market? Is it worth saving? I've got the cell insurance on the 9800 and it seems like the sooner I sell the 9000 (if thats the route I go) the more money I can recoup from the $169 the 9800 charged me...

Thoughts?

I kept my old Bold for use as a wifi only unit with a BT enabled BlackBerry Music Gateway for pandora and web surfing. I also let people make new stations on it at cook outs.

or sell it for some money, i bet prices have dropped a bit now.

lol, Blackmarket? It's not like this would be any illegal sale.

For a 9000, you should be able to get $100 for it according to physical condition. Check out Buy Sell section and compare prices of device sold similar to yours.

I have my 9000 on ebay right now, current bid is at $110 with 15 people watching. Let the bidding war begin! This was a relisting because the last winning bidder was a non payer. Lots of people try to scam stuff like this so if you do plan on putting it on ebay make sure you protect yourself.

Eh, I've got other spare phones for an emergency if I had to wait a few days

I think I'm just going to hang on to it like I do every other cell phone I get and then having it be worth nothing in the future lolol

Care to post your eBay item links? I'm curious to see how you marketed them or what your Bold came with/without
