Most of the phone credits they give are very small and you're likely to get more on ebay in many cases. But I guess it's good for those who don't want to have to go through the trouble of listing it and then shipping it out.
Yeah, I figured they wouldn't be giving much for all but the newest phones.
It might get people into the Sprint stores to find out much they'll pay.
Just ask Ashley about trying to sell a phone on Ebay. When she tried to sell her old Treo on Ebay buyers from Nigeria kept clicking buy it now, and then offered payments through fake escrow companies, even though she clearly stated she would not ship internationally, and she would not accept any escrow.
Most of the handsets that people would want to trade in are older dumbphones and they only give like $15 to $25 on those. I suppose it could still be as good or better than what you could get on ebay in some cases.
I have sold many phones on ebay and have never had a problem. Never got any foreigners either.
I am actually selling my Palm Pre on ebay right now. Sprint was willing to give something like $98 for it. My first bid on ebay is $99.99, and there are still 4 days left.
I had trouble selling a laptop a few years back on ebay. Total disaster.
Yeah, there are very few phones that won't fetch more money on ebay or craigslist.

Great you bring up a caution. I just experienced such a situation with my first eBay selling experience. A guy from Bulgaria bidding on a Sidekick I was selling apparently won and sent what looked to be a legitimate PayPal acknowledgment of the funds directly to me. He wanted the Sidekick shipped to an address in the US (for his girlfriend).
Apparently eBay rules don't allow shipment to any address other than the winner's since this is the way shipment receipt by the buyer is confirmed. I bailed and the incident was reported to PayPal who confirmed that the entire thing was bogus.
The next day I put the SK on Craig's list and within 24 hours had a local sale for cash. So, understanding that eBay is somewhat safe, I will use Craig's list as my first option in the future.
Same here. I have all my auctions set to block people from outside the US from bidding and I also block all buyers that do not have PayPal accounts and I won't ship to an unconfirmed address. I haver never had a problem.
Never had trouble with overseas buyers with my phones, as I block them too. I have had flaky buyers ib the past, but with the changes eBay has implemented with PayPal it has been smooth sailing.
Yes the whole Paypal system has really helped ebay. A lot less flakes on there now.
Everything so far, except their damn fees. They took nearly $30 from my sale!
Yeah, that is why I always try to sell on craigslist first. No fees!
I don't think I would have gotten nearly as much on craigslist as on ebay. The high bid was $235, and I netted about $200 after fees. Not too bad!
