    Selling? Trashing them? Smashing them? :rolleyes:

    I currently have a N73 on eBay right now, Ends on Monday b/c I can't be without a phone for too long.

    It's only at $124.00 right now! I hope the bidding wars increase during the weekend!

    I haven't decided what to do with my Pearl. See how many times I can skip it across the lake, see how far it can fly, what happens when I run over it with the car, etc...

    It's already been swimming at the pool. Took 2 days to dry out, but still works (good enough at least). May just give it to my daughter as a toy camera ...

    I still have 8 days to figure it out.

    you can also keep it as a backup phone, (if its gsm and if it can take a cingular sim, IE UnlockeD)

    the iphone is a first gen phone, there is bound to be problems with it (1st gen anything has problems, doesnt matter what manuf) if there is a problem with it that prevents you from making calls, then use your old phone, something your already used too.

    its never a bad idea to have a backup

    Back when I had Verizon (i'm on crappy Tmobile now).... I had there top of the line Moto phone i think it was the V710 or something like that.

    I was at the beach down in FLA, and forgot to take the phone outta my pocket when I went in the Ocean. I felt my leg buzzing and it was the phone, tried everything to dry that guy out, but it was fried.

    bottom line

    Electronics with Salt Water = :mad:

    PS: I'm now over 1,000 posts!

    That's what happened to me. It was in my pocket, I jumped in the pool. As soon as I hit the water I realized it was still in my pocket. Wife laughed, I was not happy. I really didn't want to have to buy a new phone 32 days before iPhone released (as with at&t's 30 day return policy). Thankfully it still hobbles along, for 8 more days...MMUUHAHAHAHA!

    Maybe you shouldn't call it a POS in front of potential buyers. ;) Anyhow, I sold my Razr as I didn't know anyone that needed it and I'm switching from VZW so it is no use.

    I've got a RAZR with the iPhone theme on it that some of my friends seem interested in. I'll probably give it to them for $10.

    I actually had a PPC-6700 with Sprint that went bad. Luckily I had insurance on it. Since they no longer offer the PPC6700, Sprint replaced the phone just 30 days ago with the Treo 700wx. It's a nice phone. The sad part is I have not used it at all since my company gives me a Treo 700w to use. I was actually thinking of placing it on eBay for $250-$275. It is new with packaging and manuals with no minutes on it whatsoever. Maybe interested?

    I really want the iPhone :) but I just hate those lines and all the madness.
