    Question - What is a good asking price for a Storm 9530?

    So I recently sold my Curve 8330C with some accessories (car cahrger, USB cable, home charger, silicone case) for $150. This lead me to think what does everybody think a good price is (from both the buyer's and seller's point of view) for the Storm 1?

    Personally, I am thinking around $200 (with same accessories I sold with Curve). I figure for people that are stuck in contract with an inability to uipgrade, $200 isn't a bad price considering the full retail for the Storm last time I checked, was $469.99.

    What do you think?

    Between $150 and $200 in my opinion. Is it unlocked?

    Mine is on sleeze-bay and will bring $190-210..... Had it sold once for $212.00 already but, buyer was a scammer. If you want to sell it fast and not pay fee's you can list it here and get around $150 and be done. Mine is flawless and is unlocked so I went the sleeze-bay route. They will easily bring the above amount.....

    It is not unlocked, not quite sure how difficult it is to go about unlocking it (I know I need an unlock code, but don't know how easy they are to obtain from VZW)...I have a posting on Craigs site and it is flawless

    Where could I sell it on here?

    I have sold every blackberry I have owned on Ebay. I think a quick sale price of $150-175 can be obtained in a matter of hours with a buy-it-now on Ebay without the phone being unlocked. If you put it up for auction i think you would get close to $200 or slightly more, depending on your accessories. I am going to post mine shortly on ebay and i am going to try and get slightly more than $200 and I am going to offer the dock charger and an otterbox case. I am just waiting for a replacement phone from my insurance, so I can state that the phone is brand new.

    You can sell it in our Market Place, located here
    Market Place -

    With the Storm 2 out, the Tour and the upcoming release of the Tour 2 and 8530 just releasing..It's a tough call. I would use $200.00 as a max number. Me personally, I would not pay more then 200.00 for a 9530 now.

    I have mine listed for $110 and nobody has bid on it yet. YMMV I guess.

    I posted mine on Ebay last night. All that I included was whatever came with the phone originally. I had it listed for auction or buy it now. It sold for $250.00 US with buy it now. It was paid for immediately with Paypal.I am very happy.

    I just sold my 9530 on Ebay last week. It sold at auction for $175.00. I included everything that came with it plus extended battery, charging pod, 3 leather cases and a holster. Had it sold 2 weeks prior for $225 but the ****** never paid for it and I had to re-list it. I also offered it as buy-it-now for $249.99 and did not get any takers. The phone was a year old and an unlocked Verizon phone that was free of contract obligations, the buyer is using it as we speak. Short answer I'd look to get about $200 and I'd get it listed quick before Storm 2's and/or Tours start getting listed.

    Sold my on Craig's list for $175 in 20 minutes. It was unlocked. That was after 5 sales on e-bay in which the buyer did not complete payment. I would be very cautious about e-bay, four of the five buyers used a buy it now option and did not follow through on payment (one even scammed a fake paypal payment). With the unpaid on e-bay you have to go through a resolution process otherwise they still charge you their percentage for the sale (even if you do not get paid).

    Sell Blackberry

    How about the World Edition 8830? How much will it sell at eBay? My previous 8830 is hardly used 'coz I switched to Storm right away after it came out.

    Thanks for the advice.

    It's hard to say since that is an older phone. I would start the bidding at $150 if it was me.

    Sold mine on e-bay for $217.50, it was in mint condition only one tiny scratch above the screen. If you put it on here I would guess $150 ish range, e-bay will bring alittle more, but after the paypal and e-bay fee's its a wash if you ask me.
