Blackberry Ltd are a Canadian-based multinational company who are major players within the telecommunications software and mobile hardware industries. They were founded in 1984 and before they entered the smartphone market, they manufactured and sold electronic pagers. In 2000, Blackberry launched their first smartphone, known as the Blackberry 957. They are still producing smartphones today, and their latest one - the Blackberry Key One, was released earlier in 2017.
Where Blackberry have found stiff competition, is in the regular mobile phone releases from both Apple (iPhone) and Samsung (Galaxy smartphones). As a result of this, their popularity has declined in more recent years, as many people have looked to Blackberry's competitors to resolve their mobile phone needs.
If you are one of these people, and still own a Blackberry (or a collection of them!), you might like to consider selling the devices to companies who are willing to pay a generous price for the handsets. If so, you have arrived at the right website. We specialise in linking sellers with buyers, of whom we have built up and maintained successful working relationships with. Our system is easy to use and has been designed with the user in mind.
You will see a search bar at the top of each page of our site, which allows you to enter the details of your Blackberry. Once you have done this, a number of images appear - all with the relevant Blackberry model alongside them. Simply select yours from the options that appear, and you are closer to getting a quotation, and finding out whether you can afford the latest handset from Blackberry or another vendor.
Having clicked on the matching Blackberry, you will be transferred to a new screen which will ask you for additional details. OnRecycle need to know the condition of your Blackberry (even broken units can be sold for cash), along with the network it is locked with, and the storage size that you have. This enables us to obtain an accurate list of quotations which match the type of handset that you have.
Now you have completed the hard work, allow yourself to sit back and watch as a list of prices appear! You can filter the list as you wish - whether it be by the buyer who offers the highest price for your Blackberry, or by how quickly they will make payment (if you cannot wait to buy the latest handset!) Don't forget to check out some of the reviews left by other like-minded recyclers, as you want to ensure that your choice of recycler is trustworthy. Our star rating system gives you a handy way of filtering reviews on the highest rating - so all of the information that you need is readily available.
At this stage, you will note that we have not asked you for any confidential details. As such, you will not be emailed with details of latest offers, or phoned by aggressive sales-people who try to force you into parting with your Blackberry. Our system has been designed with the user in mind, and we thoroughly respect the position of all of our clients - keeping hassle away from them as much as we can.
Once you have chosen your recycler, you are free to go ahead and sell your Blackberry. If the option is available, we recommend that you sell through OnRecycle as this gives you access to our secure payment system, as well as our expert assistance during each step of the process.
So there you have it! OnRecycle have produced a comparison website that gives you access to a range of buyers who are willing to offer a competitive price for your Blackberry, without you having to go around each one individually to obtain prices. Now that this has been resolved, you can start to consider where your next device will come from. If you are happy with the Blackberry handsets and want to continue buying from them, you might consider some of the options below.
