    I have a 12 year old blackberry (the big kind with a base and all that orignal blackberry stuff) it still works, I guess lol, it turns on and what not, but I don't think its able to be used as anything other then a paperweight and a calender LMAO well I was wondering what I can do with it, it takes up alotta space lol. I happen to live in waterloo region (aka home of RIM) maybe they have some sort of drop-off, or maybe even can I get money for it?

    have you think of going to RIM and ask if they would trade you your 12yo BB to a newer one, maybe you are one of the few who still use this BB

    they might happily take it and use it as a PR type thing and put it in a case, never know, they do it with cars (over 300k dodge clubs, etc)

    Is that one of those old school ones that wasn't a phone, only an email device?

    If that were mine, I'd see if RIM would take it/trade. If not, I'd slap that bad boy in a glass shadow box and hang it on my wall above my desk.

    Yep..I had one of those for work about 10-12 yrs ago. It was for email, messaging and a specific software application for my job. It wasn't a phone.

    I think the Ontario government has a program where they send out 2 guys to pick up your "unit" and dispose of it for free. Ohh wait..that's for refrigerators !!! That reminds me of my Handspring Visor days.

    Memories! I actually just sold a new/never used 957 on ebay for $10. I have a client who's had BB's since the 857 series (and maybe the model before that, can't remember). Long before regular carriers had these devices. I think we had him set up through Motient. Great device; only problem was my client kept breaking the thumb wheel. Must have gone through 3-4 of these in 2 years before I finally got him on a 71xx series.
