The preferred method to buying any Blackberry for sale on the internet for those who want a safer way to purchase one of the best phones out there.
Since 1999 you have been able to find a Blackberry in most every venue. The fact that they’ve been around since 1999 is an exceptionally good selling point of the Blackberry itself.
Twelve years in any of the cell phone or even computer based and/or electronics type of product lines is like a century in the “normal” consumer product world.
Blackberry was one of the first leading the way in “SmartPhones” and while the iPhone has probably taken a larger portion of the SmartPhone market by now, the truth is Blackberry SmartPhones are actually still one of the best rated of the SmartPhones for the business person. Because of their extremely wide based service area and ability to do many things that the average SmartPhone can do but the Blackberry performance is better and quicker with.
The Blackberry was also smart in the sense that they did not provide “exclusive” service to one carrier. Their phones were available to most every large service provider available worldwide and for this reason they literally cornered the “business person” market.
One of the best aspects of the Blackberry is that you can work on MS Office documents while on the go using the Blackberry. Their operating system is much more easy to use as a literal “office on the go” than most other SmartPhones out there, including the iPhone and the Droid.
Because Blackberry has been around for so long it’s not hard to find a used Blackberry for sale. You can check everywhere from CraigsList to eBay and even Amazon.
Finding a Used or Refurbished Blackberry for Sale
There is a difference between a used and a refurbished Blackberry for sale.
A used Blackberry would be one that was previously owned and has the wear and tear of an obviously used phone/computer. There are both pros and cons to finding a Blackberry used.
One of the pros would be the obvious much lower cost; paying a fraction of the original price for even some of the most recent models. If you are lucky enough, you can find even some of the 3G or 4G Blackberry phones under the “Used” Blackberry for sale columns.
The pro of finding one of these newer models is that it most probably is being put up for sale because the owner decided to move from a 3G to a 4G or decided to purchase another type of phone; many former Blackberry users switched to iPhones, especially when they’re not using their phones for international “business” and business purposes.
However, with pros generally come cons…
In particular water damage is one of the most common issues with used phones, even if it’s limited water damage which causes battery issues.
The refurbished Blackberry for sale tends to be offered from a company which not only has made sure they’ve refurbished the Blackberry to the point of being “just like new” but generally offer a limited time warranty with their phone also.
Also, you have to remember that “refurbished” does not mean “new” and there could be problems that arise after any guarantee time. In particular this happens with the phone when it’s a “common” issue that is frequently seen with this particular model and while they may have fixed the issue, since it’s common with that model it may quickly become an issue again.
What Types of Blackberry Phones Are Available?
- Amazon in particular has a large variety of models available
Depending upon the time you search you can find some of the newer models; like the Torch 9800, the Storm 9530, and the Tour 9630.
- Slightly older, but still fairly new and definitely excellent models are also available
A fairly current search on Amazon brought many of the 8000 series models such as the Curve 8520, the Blackberry 8800, the Curve 8330, the Curve 8900 Javelin, and many more.
- CraigsList has a few different listings under the Blackberry for Sale category
As many know from previous use or even word of mouth, CraigsList can be very hit or miss in both finding what you want and finding someone that truly has a decent product.
It’s hard to be assured of purchases on CraigsList and in particular with used electronics.
- eBay also has a large collection to offer
Some people simply prefer to work with the a company as opposed to an individual, so Amazon tends to be the preferred method to buying any Blackberry for sale on the internet for those who want a slightly safer way to purchase one of the best phones out there.
