    I am not sure if you guys know this or not but rather than waiting to sell our phones on ebay or craigslist, we can send it back to sprint and receive a sprint credit. I just checked on my palm pre and even though it isn't much (it's $63) at least I won't have to worry about selling it on ebay and paying for shipping.

    Here is the link:

    Sprint will give me $70 for my BB Tour. They are going for $165 used on ebay. I can put it on Ebay, buy-it-now for $150, and it'll be gone quick.

    Not saying in some cases ebay wouldn't be a better option, especially with a phone like yours, but for some who have older phones the sprint buyback program might be a better approach.

    The site won't do anything. I put in my account number and it just refreshes to the same screen.

    Try phone #, click don't know my account #, and enter your phone # and it will work.

    Yeah I think it's worth it! It might not be that much but at least it's convenient and reliable.

    I plan on selling my unlocked TP2 on craiglist. No shipping to deal with and you don't have to worry about getting scammed since you are paid in cash. I've sold a few this way and prefer it over ebay. I usually meet the person at a Sprint store, so they can activate it on the spot. Minimizes the risk since you are meeting in a public place and the buyer can't say you sold them a phone with a bad ESN.

    with moderate wear, RS will give you $72 for the Pre. you can use this towards your EVO.

    you can even do this IN STORE so you dont have to wait by mail.

    Damn. I think it's the S2000I. Well, that's what it says on the packaging slip for the phone (Kyocera S2000I Web Direct). Bought this from virgin mobile for 10 bucks, dont want to pay return shipping =/

    If you bought you phone from Best Buy, they have a online or instore buy back program.
    Online Trade In

    They're buying back my Sprint Hero for $135.

    I have a Touchstone, too. I can't really sell my Pre on eBay, though, because it has a small crack in the USB area. Grr! I'll probably end up giving my Touchstone to a friend of mine w/ a Pre who doesn't have the Touchstone.
