BlackBerry Trade Up Program Provides Cost and Security Benefits

BlackBerry Trade Up Logo

Your company can now make upgrading to new BlackBerry® smartphones more affordable. By taking advantage of the BlackBerry Trade Up program, you can return corporate smartphones in bulk and receive money back, reducing the cost of acquiring new devices. Additionally, all smartphones traded in will be processed at a Research In Motion-licensed facility and be cleared of corporate data.

If you wish, you can have your company's smartphones recycled rather than refurbished and resold. While there is no trade-in value for recycled phones, your company will be spared the expense of disposing of the handsets on your own.

To ensure that your trade up runs smoothly, the program also offers dedicated corporate support during every step of the transaction. To learn more about the program, go to http://blackberryconnection.flipswap.com/.
