Always throw away
I have done both
How many of you keep the box when you get a new BlackBerry?
How many people actually keep the box when you get a new BlackBerry, or any piece of technology for that matter? I ALWAYS keep the box for everything really. Not sure why...but it will help out if I want to sell anything. People often look for the box.
So how many keep the box, or throw it away?My goal here is to help out and provide knowledge! Feel free to shoot me a PM

I always keep packaging for my tech stuff, just in case I want to sell it. Gives it that much more resale value with the original packaging.Storm 1 > Bold 9900 > Blackberry Z10 > Passport!

I keep the boxes in case I resell the phone, but now there's a little "collection" in the corner of my room: My first BlackBerry, the 8220, the 8900, the 9530 and my current 9900. All other boxes have been sold off, along with all the accessories inside the box like the phones.Blatant placeholder signature.

All reasonably sized boxes go in a drawer until the original devices usefullness is passed. After that they are either sold or disposed of properly. Larger boxes are used as forts and bear caves. Kids love them.Nothing is so common as is the goal to be remarkable

I keep the box for EVERY electronic item I buy
I always keep the box and packaging just in case I have to take it back, but 30 days later it makes a home somewhere and I end up never throwing it away.
But, it helps when moving because I can put everything back in its original packing without worrying about damage.
I could be on box Hoarders lol

Heck, still have the original box for my 1983 Timex Sinclair 2068. We almost never throw out original boxes, especially for electronics.March of the Smartphones: Handspring Visor with Digital Link > Handspring Treo 600 > Sprint PPC 6700 > Palm Centro > Blackberry Tour 9630 > Blackberry Bold 9650 > Blackberry Torch 9850 > Palm Treo 755p > Blackberry Bold 9930 > iPhone 4s (issued by work) > Palm Treo 755p > BlackBerry Bold 9930 > BlackBerry Q10

I keep the box in case I wanna sell it. I kept my box for my Torch 9800 and sold it for 140 and put that money towards my Blackberry Bold 9900 which I only paid like 70 bucks after that sale. I guess I keep the boxes to increase the sell value B-)

I keep the box and put all the original pack-ins I don't use and the receipt in there. When I sell it, it just looks better with everything there.Retired: 8703, 8130, 8330, 9630, 9800, 9900, PlayBook
