    Hey, I just checked out this site for buying/selling Android phones. I am hearing some really good things about it!
    No more Ebay/Craigslist nightmares.
    All their phones meet a certain criteria/standard.
    Just thought I would pass this along...

    Swappa: a great place for buying and selling Android devicesAndroidGuys

    Looks like they have some great deals too!!! :)
    Next time I am in the market to buy/sell an Android phone I will go here.

    Enjoy! ;)

    Incredible 2s are going for mostly over $200. I'll keep watching Craigslist.

    Uh ,OK.
    If you're selling one then that's good... Ya' know.

    More good reasons to use Swappa vs. Ebay/Craigslist:

    How is Swappa different?

    Swappa does not allow junk devices (e.g. no bad ESNs, no cracked screens, no water damage). All listings on Swappa meet the following criteria (according to the Seller):

    All devices are fully functional All devices have clean ESNs (have not been reported lost or stolen) and are ready for activation All devices are free of water damage and screen cracks...plus a lot more...

    I've always used Ebay to sell my used smartphones prior to purchasing a new one. No problems.

    Looks nice!
    Haha, people are selling their Rezound's on there for 340-440$

    The price of a Rezound just went down today to 49$.
    Probably to make way for the Incredible 4G...

    You and I both.
    I can't wait to see the Inc4G in my possession.
    But, when that happens, I'll have to Swappa my Incredible 2 to pay for it. Like a real horse trader.
    Too bad, I wish I could keep it.

    WoW that was FAST! I listed my Dinc2 on there April 2nd & woke up on the 3rd & it was SOLD. The buyer paid with Paypal immediately, I set it to transfer to my checking account & the money is already there! I am blown away at how fast & easy that was. Waaaayyyy better than ebay :)

    I don't think I'll be able to sell my DInc2 when I get an upgrade. I have never had a phone as great and reliable as this one. I'll be keeping it as a backup for a long time I think.

    I just got rid of my old Nokia brick that I have had on a shelf for years "just in case".

    If I do, I'll try this swappa-thing. Maybe That's where my Eris will go...

    I've heard great things about Swappa, however I've never used the site. I do keep an eye out every couple of days to see what's available.
