Default Is there a market for a used Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a BB Torch ....
What do people do with BB's theyre not using any more. Do they just throw them out. I have a Blackberry World Edition ... is there any market for these?

Thanks

Look at the Buy/Sell/Trade section and also eBay and Craig's List and see for yourself.

I would normally say no to the original poster but you will be surprised. At least look at Buy Sell Trade section as suggested

The key point here is that your phone is much more marketable

Default There sure is

When I upgraded to the Torch from the Storm, I listed it on Craigslist and Kijijji. I sold my Storm, with a bbskin, and my old bluetooth headset for $250. I paid $179 for my Torch + $40 for a new bluetooth. So yes, there certainly is a market for used Blackberries. Many people do not have phone insurance, so when they lose or bust their phones, they are stuck in a contract with no device. A replacement can cost them $500+ for a new one. List your berry, and give it a few days. Mine sold in 48 hours.
