Evo Buy Back

I am still thinking about replacing my EVO 4G with the EVO 4G LTE, and checked with sprint about selling back my Evo.  They would give me $70 for it!  That seems pretty good to me!  The last time I tried to sell back a 2 year old phone, I was offered $5. Do you think they'll still offer $70 after the Evo 4G LTE is released?

Sell it on craigslist.  The Evo's are going for around $150 in my area.

personally im keeping my EVO 4G around just in case the new phone goes south on me. not to mention you would probably get more money out of the phone if  you sold it on say craigslist or something.

I agree, I can't tell you how many people that I've spoken to who had lost, destroyed, or sent phone into the manufacturer for service who are extremely upset that they did not have a phone to fall back on, and I could not offer them a discounted phone. This is why I usually suggest keeping at least one inactive, working phone at home, just in case it is needed.

Very true.  Plus, it's a great entertainment device for my 8 year old.  You can't find anything that plays music, games, and surfs the web on WiFi for $70.

I have a drawer full of old phones that I use in case of emergency.  Well, they're not all that old, but I do still have an old brick phone...just because I can't bring myself to get rid of it!

I'd definitely keep it!  Great as a backup as some have said.

I'm keeping my Evo (ideally) after I get the new LTE model. I plan on using mine as an android mp3 player/media device.

Plus it'll be handy to have a back up phone I know I can rely on 😉
