Default Blackberry for the Needy

Just something I thought of. What if there was a site, where you could donate an old BB i.e. 7280 and it would be given to the BB unfortunate lol.
How funny would that be!

That way someone who wanted to try out a BB could just pay the shipping and get an older BB to play with and see if they liked...or get hooked.

That's a bit how I ended up here--- bought an old Blackberry on eBay (7230) 'cause I was fascinated with them and wanted to try one out.

Wow...this would do my company a world of good since we have about 300 7280s in a drawer that are just fine (and more coming in every month).

A good way of only providing phones for the needy.

Basically a way of verifing that only 1 user gets 1 phone, and making sure only phones that have a "low" market value will be accepted...andyone who wants to donate an 8700 can just give it to me lolz

I will have a 7280 to donate

Or maybe the website income from ads will let us get BES service to the phones...then we can have some control over the phones...we can wipe and lock them at will

Require that whoever is using the phone to pin msg an "admin" once a week or something across that line.
