    Keepers, for everything. Mainly for resale value original box and packaging go a long way.

    I always keep everything associated with the purchase in the box, makes it much easier to track down info needed later in one known place.

    I always keep everything what came by the device: documents, bags, separators e.t.c because I like set the original state back. My wife doesn't like it soo much...

    I only have one BlackBerry, but I still have the box it came in and the Rogers bag in which it was carried!

    Me too.

    I have enough stuff to find a place for, the last thing I need is an empty box.
    Curiously, probably half the stuff I have had to find a place for is empty boxes.

    Did your wife arrive in a box perchance? Come on, you know you want to laugh.

    I keep mine for about two years so I can sell them on in the box if I need to.

    The 9630 box is full of headphones, chargers and other crap.

    I keep the boxes of all my electronic devices for the duration of the warranty. I had one case where int he small print it stated for the warranty to be honored the product had to be returned in the original packaging (can't remember for sure what it was but believe it was a motorola razr back in the day) so now I keep them just in case.

    I usually keep my boxes... and it actually did come in handy when I did the Trade Up program (traded in my 9800 for a 9900).

    Besides the fact that it took FOREVER to get the credit (a couple of weeks to even get an email saying they received the phone, then EIGHT weeks to get the pre-paid card in the mail), I did feel validated in keeping the box.

    At least it helped clear some clutter out of my closet...

    I keep mine until I sell my previous blackberry, or give it away when a new one replaces it. Since mine are unlocked. The box goes without to the next person who owns it.

    I keep all of my phone boxes unless they're just generic solid color ones. All of the OS7 (and some OS7) phones come in generic black boxes at my carrier so I tossed my 9900 box away.

    I still have the box of my first smartphone, a 6-year old HTC Mogul running windows phone 6.

    Like many have said, I keep mine for when I sell my phone. I don't use too many of the OEM accessories, so when I sell my phone I can say that I'm including the box and everything that came with it. The only box I have is for my old Sidekick LX because I sold that to a friend and he didn't need the box. Since the sidekick brand is no more, I keep it for sentimental reasons.

    I keep the boxes and unused accessories together. I do this because I might resell it, or donate it or in case I have to return it. For what it's worth, I buy phones off EBay, and I will always pass on a phone that does not come with the original box.

    Ha, yes. I have the box for my old 8830, 9630 and 9650. Unfortunately, my Storm2 and 9900 were devices I bought used, so no box.
    I don't know, for some nerdy reason I think it's fun to once in a while look over the box and book inside
