    I've been doing some carrier shopping today. I made a stop in a Tbooth Wireless because they had a sign in the window about a trade-in credit for an older Blackberry if moving up to the Z10. They are the exclusive provider for the Rogers offer, where they will give a $50 credit in addition to the trade-in value. I asked about a trade-in value for my Bold 9900, and was told they will offer $150 for it! That covers the cost of the new phone on a 3-year contract! This is a generous offer, I think Bell is offering $100 and Telus, $75, for the same model.

    In my case, I'm tempted, but I may be able to get more via Craigslist since I have some related accessories.

    Those trade-in offers are never really a grea deal.. cool if you don't really care as long as you end up with a new device but you can typically always get more elsewhere.

    Ya, I had thought as much. Nonetheless, I was surprised by the relatively high offer, and thought I would share it with others. I am figuring to go the Craigslist route myself as I have some accessories to go with the 9900, and would get a better price for the bundle.

    If they are offering you $150, thats a great deal comparable to what you'll get on Kijiji and I'd take that deal. If it was under $100 I'd say sell it yourself. That's just my opinion.

    I think $150 is a bit low, but that depends on the condition of the phone. If its in good condition I'm sure you will get more than the quoted price of $150. Personally I'd just keep the phone if that's the price being offered across the board.

    well, $150 + another $50 is pretty fair. the market price on kijiji for a used 9900 is $180-220 right now depending on condition.
