    A friend of mine, who is [/i]usually[i] pretty credible, just said that if you turned in your old phone you got an additional $50 rebate when purchasing a Storm. I followed the phone's release pretty closely and didn't hear of this anywhere, any truth to it?

    Was he talking about the blackberry trade up program? They offer an additional $50 when you use promo code GRADUATE.

    It may be part of the Blackberry trade up program. There is a thread all about it. Pretty decent. I know that until November 30th, there is a $50 bonus on top of what they're giving you for your phone. I'll be getting around 180 for my Dare with the extra $50.

    You do but it is not as simple as what he said---well it is but there is a process. JHere is the link:

    The BlackBerry Trade Up Program gives you cash towards the purchase of a new BlackBerry Smartphone: Home

    the code for the addiitonal $50 is "graduate" and it expires at end of month. Serach the forums here you will find info on it. I did it with two curves and it worked without a hitch.

    That's what I'm saying, if I return the phone to verizon, then do the trade up and order the phone again through blackberry wouldn't it be $249 - $50 rebate - $50+ trade up value?

    Yessir. Sent mine in this morning. When all is said and done I will have paid slightly less than $50 for my Storm.

    Cant seem to find this anywhere now that I look at it, but I just sent in my original proof of purchase (cut off the box) in to BB for the factory 50 rebate, but will a copy of the proof of purchase be enough? Or do you have to use the original?

    If it's the original, then im screwed.

    Just a quick question, what if I printed out my phone quotes with the $50 promo code in the total but don't get my Storms before the 11/30 deadline? Will my quotes still be honored if I ship the phones and Storm proof of purchase within 30 days?

    Umm I am not sure---what date will your receipt have on it? I know you can def. send after Nov 30 but proof of purchase must show it was purchased on or before hte 30th.

    Well, I placed my order for one yesterday and another for my wife today. Both were with telesales. Do you know if Verizon will show the actual order date or the warehouse fulfillment/ship date?

    This is amazing, $57.66 for my old Pearl, plus another $50 by using code 'graduate' - and they pay for shipping your old phone back.

    I have a Verizon LG Voyager (VX1000) and Samsung Alias (u740) sitting around once I get my Storm in late January.

    The trade-up program says I can get $98.09 and $49.41 for them, respectively. I've looked at eBay and saw that I could get $175 for just the Voyager alone.

    What would you guys pick? Guaranteed $147.50? Or risk them both on eBay?
