    I'm selling my three-week-old unlocked Classic at local Craigslist and someone approached me to trade with his OG Passport. Mine is a complete package, while his just phone, cable, and charger. In addition, his is probably over 10 months old.

    Do you guys think it's a good idea to straight trade with him?

    Honestly, as long as nothing is wrong with the phone, I'd say it's a pretty good trade.

    The keyboard is the big difference. You might feel like you have buyer's remorse after if your not used to it. Rest assured.. after an hour or two for a week max, you'll be glad you did.

    I'd suggest typing out a few solid passages on it to make sure the keyboard isn't messed up. I don't think that a SUPER common problem, but you want to make sure. 10 months is a long time in smart phone land.

    Maybe bring a mirco USB to test the port and a set of headphones and jiggle the lead while it's plugged to make sure the headphones don't crackle.

    Not to be distrustful of this guy, he probably just wants a different feel for his keyboard. But if this isn't the reason, beware.

    I forgot to mention that the reason he liked to trade would to get a phone capable of tmobile's WiFi calling.

    The passport is a great piece of hardware as long as there are no issues with it, I would do an even trade in a heartbeat! Make sure there is no screen lift or scratches/dents etc

    I made my decision that I would upgrade to a SE after selling my Classic at expected price or keep it until SE price goes lower.

    Thank you guys for your valuable opinions.

    Mod, are you able to close this thread? Thanks.
