The BlackBerry Trade Up Program was announced back in February but was not available in Canada – until today. RIM has opened the doors for us Canadian to get in on the action and depending on the condition of your Berry RIM will give you up to $170 to trade in your old smartphone for a new one (plus an additional credit up to $35). If you have 6 devices that you want to trade-up you’ll need to call 1-888-890-0199 and get a bulk quote discount.
Here’s the list of eligible trade-in smartphones: BlackBerry Pearl, BlackBerry Curve, BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Storm, BlackBerry Tour, BlackBerry 8700 or BlackBerry 8800 Series smartphones.
Good to know as there are some solid devices coming up this year for RIM: Bold Touch, Curve Touch, Torch 2… Check it out here at RIM
