    I would check the price from Verizon and also check online sites like Gazelle. They usually give a really good price, often better than you can get at carrier stores. Then grab your new iPhone 5 on Verizon. You don't want the BlackBerry, they're hyped but don't live up to it.

    And if BBM is all you're looking for in a phone, the BlackBerry is great for you. If you want a full mobile experience with web browsing, apps, and games, don't leave iPhone.

    You should be able to her between $250-$300 from them, depending on the phone condition.

    You tell them what you want to sell and place your sales order. They send you the box. Put the phone in the box with the prepaid label and send it to them. Then you get paid in 3-14 days, depending on how you want to be paid. Gift cards or Paypal is faster, a mailed check takes longer. It's safe, easy, and profitable. I've done it with an iPad and 2 iPhones.

    BBM is great, but most people I know with blackberries dont even use it. Iphones have imessage. BBM has a separate "pin" number, much like nextel phones had a beep beep number. With imessage, it goes by your phone number so whenever you text someone with an iphone its automatically an imessage. Much appreciated because you get the delivery /read reciepts, also when they are typing.

    I gave up waiting on the blackberry z10 when the Iphone 5 came out and I needed to switch my carrier plan due to going over on minutes. Blackberry will get the job done, dont let people say its outdated. It will do what you need and give little problems. Much more efficient than an iphone, but ios is huge and has apps for everything. Blackberry has utilities, which ios has to be jailbroken to even use. Blackberry lacks games, and "an app for everything." My playbook has zero apps, but I can do anything via the web browser since it has a full webkit. Thats the main reason I chose it over an ipad, since the ipad has a limited internet. Not sure what internet capabilities the z10 has, but if its like the playbook, its superior to ios safari.

    If your looking to sell your phone to switch carriers, you will most likely get considerably more via ebay, craigslist, private sale, or a site like gazelle, amazon instant purchase, bestbuy instant purchase, etc.

    Amazon also has a trade-in program. In the past, I've found that their trade-offer was higher than Gazelle. However, the trick is that you get paid as an Amazon gift card, not cash. I use Amazon a lot, so it wasn't an issue for me, but obviously won't work if you want to use the cash from one phone for the new one.

    I suppose I have to ask the question I did not see you mention or anyone ask unless I missed it. Are you under contract with Sprint since this is a new phone? If so are you paying an ETF if that is the case to get out? Lastly and this is my own personal choice but if the previous questions are NO I would opt to go to an Apple store butthis me. I just like the way I am treated and their knowledge of switching things around from one phone to another in terms of contacts and email. Then Yes I would look at various sites as mentioned to see what you can get for your phone. Sell privately or if you meet the criteria here sell it in our own Marketplace where you will get a lot of exposure and and a certain trust factor. Good luck. NO BBs though!!
