    I'm interested to see how this works for BlackBerry. I showed the article to a couple of colleagues who are current iPhone owners. Both said that they have no interest in switching to BlackBerry regardless of this offer. Both also said they likely will upgrade to the iPhone 6 or 6+, or look at Samsung, but BlackBerry is not even in the running for consideration. I think it shows that BlackBerry's reputation still has a very long road to recovery in the minds of many consumers.

    Well, it could also be that there is little interest in a physical keyboard. That's a significant barrier to many such as myself.

    Must not be selling enough Passports.

    This cuts into their profits on the phone. Something companies only do if something is not selling.

    Regardless it will have little or no impact. Apple users seems pretty loyal.

    Might have a bigger impact if they aimed this toward Samsung S5s.

    But then JC doesn't want to ruffle Samsung feathers since he climbed in bed with them.







    BlackBerry hates America!

    Wonder what iPhone you have to trade in to get the full $400? Gotta be the 5s, no way they'd give $400 for a 4s, that would be a good trade.

    I think this move will help benefit BlackBerry. Some iPhone users are bond to take advantage of this offer. It's all good. Every small step counts. BlackBerry is not as big as it was, nor as popular, but BlackBerry has the potential to grow, and this kind of move is good to help them grow. Eventually the BlackBerry label/brand will be more accepted, and the demand from BlackBerry hardware will increase.

    It's a good idea to get some phones out there and to be seen. Depending on what $ you get, why not turn in an iPhone 5 that is 2 years old for enough to buy an unlocked passport. If you don't like it, you can just upgrade to a new contract (assuming you are in an area that does this- US and Canada) and get your iPhone 6. I have a 4S at home. If I got $300, I'd shell out another $300 and try it. If I didn't like it, I'd go back to my Z10 and then upgrade when the Z10 was either non-functional or just outdated by the passage of time. It is a 2013 phone.

    Good plan after you turn your back on consumers, Chen must be bi-polar to even think this will work.

    There is a BlackBerry trade in program for older BB devices but the PP isn't an option.
    Unfortunately the most I could get for my Telus Z30 was $100...and that is towards another Z30....cruel!
