From what I've seen*, smartphones depreciate even more rapidly than PCs and laptops. What do you do to get even a respectable chunk of your original cost back when you sell your old phone?
[*] Not only commentary I've read but also my own experience. In February '11, I got my wife and myself Motorola Pros - which had just come out a few months earlier - from Verizon for c $260 total (they were c $179.99 each with a two-year contract and I got $100 off special). Within a year and a half, Verizon was giving them away free (with a contract, natch). Even though they're still in 100% working order, the best offer I can find online for the pair is $30 - total, plus shipping - from BuyMyTronics.
Yes I am just bragging. I got my DNA for $50.
LetsTalk Wireless had it on there for $99, free overnight shipping. They had a $10 coupon code. Mr.Rebates had a $35 rebate + $5 for first time users. = $50 DNA.
Playing with it now, it's amazing. Trying to decide what launchers etc to use.
Congratulations cdogg777 on your great deal, and thank you for letting the rest of us know where you got it!
