Own an old BlackBerry phone? You'll soon be able to trade it for a KeyOne or Motion


BlackBerry today announced plans to launch a trade-up program
that would make it easy for owners of old BlackBerry handsets to buy a BB device released in 2017. Thanks to this program, folks who still use
smartphones running BlackBerry OS 10 (or older) will receive “a
significant discount and incentive” to upgrade to the BlackBerry KeyOne or
Motion.

 

Owners of the BlackBerry Priv (released in late 2015 as the
first Berry
to ditch BB OS in favor of Android) will be able to trade-up their device for a
new model, too. 
Speaking of the Priv, since the handset is now over 2 years
old, …

Sprint offers a $350 discount on the iPhone X if you trade in your old smartphone

Apple’s iPhone X will be available for pre-order starting this Friday, but some carriers will probably jump the gun and announce their special deals on the flagship a few days earlier – just like Sprint did today.

Since the iPhone X’s price starts at $999, any discounts would help make it a better deal. Sprint announced today its iPhone X promotional deal, which allows customers to save up to $350 when they buy Apple’s upcoming flagship.

The deal is only available through Sprint Flex leasing and implies customers to trade in their old smartphone for the iPhone …

Trade in any smartphone to get a Cheaper iPhone

It’s no longer a question: Apple will now officially accept certain Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices in exchange for credit toward new iPhones.

The original rumor only mentioned Android phones, but 9to5Mac confirms that BlackBerry and Windows devices are also now accepted.

Smartphone-Cheaper-iPhone

Apple made no formal announcements, but the company’s individual retail store pages in the US, UK, Canada and other regions now state that users can “get credit when you recycle your eligible iPhone, iPad, or select smartphone from another manufacturer.”

TechRadar contacted an Apple Store representative in the UK who confirmed you can trade in any smartphone to receive the discount on an iPhone or iPad, but you can only trade in one smartphone for each purchase.

Once you take it into the store, Apple will run a diagnostics check to make sure there isn’t any damage and to test out the battery before offering you a price for it.

You’ll then get an Apple gift card to the quoted value and be able to use it on either the purchase of an iPhone or an iPad – but sadly there are no MacBook or Apple Watch purchases here.

Despite the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earning Apple a mind-blowing amount of money since their launch last year, the company is still coming up with new ways to boost sales.

Its latest ploy? Courting disillusioned Android users with the allure of discounted new iPhones, according to 9to5Mac.

Is the iPad Pro still happening?
Just like it already does with old iPhones, Apple will soon begin offering gift cards for use toward new iPhones in exchange for non-Apple phones, including Android devices, the site says.

The program will reportedly begin in a matter of weeks, following training for employees.

Take the sting out

Apple is no stranger to trade-ins, but with this promotion the company could potentially attract Android users put off by the relatively high price of new iPhones.

It makes perfect sense, although we haven’t heard anything official about the program yet.

Apple let us know that it has nothing to share about the program at this time, but we’ll keep an ear to the ground.
