Blackberry Tradeup and Support


“Blackberry”: Not well advertised is the fact that if you buy a Blackberry then you have 30 days to send in your old Blackberry and get say $35 or some amount off. Models that this applies to are:

BlackBerry 7100i, 7105t, 7130c, 7130e, 7130g, 7250, 7290, 7520, 8700c, 8700g or 8700r.

For an old 7280, they are giving you $35 which really ain’t bad. You do have to have a receipt though.

As an aside, there is a good “FAQ”: for how to wipe your Blackberry. The long and short of it is that if you have a late model Blackberry running Version 3.8 or later, then you need to find “KB-02318”: where at the “Knowledge Base”: The general idea is to Select Options/Security/General Security and click on the trackwheel on Wipe Handheld. This deletes everything on the the Blackberry and you can start a fresh. You then either load the BIS data from your carrier or you have to call your administrator to get your Enterprise Activiation password. If you have a really old before 3.8 then what you need to do is to type an incorrect password ten times at Turn Security/Password/Enabled pick a random passwrod then turn it on and off and you type it badly 10 times. Alternatively, you dock your Blackberry to Blackberry Desktop Manager and Select Applications Loader/Advanced/Erase All Application Data and you get there too.

Also “BBHub”: is a site I need to start reading with lots of contributions as well as “Pinstack”:
