Earlier this year RIM announced the availability of the BlackBerry Trade-Up Program. The program allows BlackBerry users to trade their old BlackBerry phones for credit towards a newer BlackBerry phones. At the time the selection was limited to a few devices.

Now RIM has included BlackBerry 7 devices as part of the trade up options. The Trade-Up program may be a good option for those that want a new BlackBerry, but are not eligible for an upgrade from their carrier. As of right now the program only exists for North America, Canada, and Australia.
