BlackBerry Paying iPhone Users to Switch

BlackBerry Passport Smartphones

Would you trade your iPhone for the new BlackBerry Passport? BlackBerry seems to think you will, and is offering the BlackBerry Passport Trade-Up Program, aimed at iPhone users that want to convert to the new BlackBerry Passport. For a limited time, starting December 1, 2014 Apple iPhone users can upgrade to a BlackBerry Passport and get up to $400 USD/CAD back on their iPhone, plus an additional $150 USD ($200 CAD) from BlackBerry.

The deal is never as good as it sounds, even if you’d want a PassPort. Here is the fine print:

  • You must purchase the new BlackBerry Passport www.shopblackberry.com in Canada or the United States or shipped from and sold by Amazon.com on www.amazon.com in the United States.
  • The total value of your Trade-In and Top-Up will be mailed to you within 6 weeks after qualification of eligibility for the program.
  • Individual consumers will be paid via a Visa Prepaid Card from MetaBank and mailed to the address you provided on your quote 6 weeks after the Trade-in Center receives both eligible device(s) and a valid proof of purchase(s) and confirms your eligibility for the program.
  • Your used iPhone must be deactivated from the wireless network and all outstanding airtime charges paid in full.
  • You must also have the “Find My iPhone” feature turned off.
  • BlackBerry is not responsible for previous or subsequent airtime charges accrued to your phone prior to or following participation in the program.
  • Should any airtime charges occur, it is your responsibility to resolve any payments issues.

The BlackBerry Passport Trade-Up program runs from December 1, 2014 to February 13, 2015 and is available in North America only. Current qualifying iPhone models include the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, and 6.

iPhone 5C up to $130 $150 up to $280
iPhone 5S up to $235 $150 up to $385
iPhone 6 up to $400 $150 up to $550

 
If you want to go through all that hassle, you can get the new BlackBerry Passport, the new smartphone from BlackBerry, that provides an expansive square touch screen; a touch-enabled keyboard that allows you to perform many touch functions right on the keyboard; BlackBerry Blend which allows you to access messages and content from your BlackBerry smartphone on your computer and tablet; a text and voice BlackBerry Assistant to help you accomplish tasks quickly and easily; a high quality phone call experience and more than a full day of battery life.
