Buyback Programs

Mr. Lin, I need to correct you. Nextel is not the only carrier to have a handset buyback program. SprintPCS launched theirs in October. You can get up to, if I recall correctly, $75 credit when returning your old handset and buying a new one.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to the details anymore. If you call Sprint and the representative you speak to doesn't know about it, either, ask them to look up "Handset Buyback" in Wizard.

Slander, i'm looking into this. there's no information on the program on sprint pcs's public website. in fact, they state they might offer a buyback program in the future. however after you raised this issue, i did find this information on Sprint PCS Info.

The sad thing is they only pay $75 dollars for Treo 600, and that's the highest priced item (along with the samsung i500 and i600. Ouch!

Once we get word back from Sprint, I'll update the page as appropriate. Thank you!

Sprint sent out a flyer to many customers to let them know about the program. It's also available in retail locations, if I'm not mistaken. Hatoncat's list is accurate.

Just glad I could help.

Cingular also has a buyback program for certain phones. When switching for AT&T to Cingular. It's about $75 on phones like the V600, Nokia 6800, etc. It offers a nice incentive for switching over to Cingular.

There are also better places to sell old nextel. Try www.betterbuyback.com

They buy old nextel phones and claim to pay more than Nextel.
