    Don't forget to check how much Sprint will give you to trade in your old phone for a Pre.

    Old Palm models return up to $50.

    I wish I had seen this before I recycled my old T600.

    That whole program is a crock..

    For giggles, I checked my old Touch Pro, they wanted to give me $50 for a brand new in box Touch Pro.. wtf.

    Yea, I can get a whopping $50 for my 800w. I think I will get rid of it on ebay for $200-$250

    What if its a phone from another carrier? Like if I switch from using my VZW Centro?

    1. how/where can we find out how much they'll give us?
    2. does it vary by device - ie dumbphone vs. smartphone and treo vs. touch etc.?
    3. must the phone be WORKING?
    4. must it be a SPRINT phone?

    I mean, yeah.. I'm sure it works for some old-fart phones.. but anything within the past 2yrs (maybe more) can still be sold for some good change, way over $50, which I think is the max they will give you.

    I'd personally just keep my phone just in case the Pre doesn't work out.

    Exactly, nothing wrong with having backup phones

    How old is old? I got a few 2 year old Razrs and never thought about trading them in.

    Why recycle it if its anything close to a newer phone? Go on Ebay and sell it. Any smart phone that is a year or two old should probably fetch you more than $50

    lol, I got a DONATE ONLY for my crappy samsung m300. (I'm surprised I didn't have to pay them to take it back )

    I think I'll have Sprint buy back my Instinct for $50.
