I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of a couple promos that BlackBerry has to entice current Good customers to switch to BlackBerry. Below are the details:

Promo One:Competitive BES Promo

This promo allows a customer to switch from Good to BlackBerry absolutely FREE. The customer will receive the BES software and CALs free. You just need to get the following information to me so I can get approval.

Company Name:
Company Address:
Company Contact:
Company Contact Email Address:
Number of Users:

Once approved, I will get all the info and the customer will get the BES and CALs for free.

PROMO TWO: BlackBerry Trade Up Program

This promo allows a customer to trade in their existing mobile device (BlackBerry or Treo) and receive money back towards a new BlackBerry. Currently, the BlackBerry Trade Up Program is offering $200 for a Treo 700p in good condition or $120 for a Treo 650 in good condition. With the BlackBerry 8703e at $99, that means the customer will be able to trade in a Treo 650, purchase a BlackBerry 8703e and still have roughly $20 left over! If you multiply that by 10 devices, that is $200 in the customers pocket! You can view more about the BlackBerry Trade Up Program here:

To recap, a customer trading in Treo devices and their Good server will be able to get a FREE BES and CALs as well as new BlackBerry 8703e devices and still get additional money back. I would like to see everyone take advantage of these great promos while speaking with customers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me. Thanks everyone!
