Verizon offering money for used phones

- An HTC Evo, one of the newer and hottest-selling Android phones with both 3G and 4G capabilities on Sprint's network--would bring you ... a grand total of $132. The phone goes for $199.99 from Sprint -- that's after signing a two-year contract and getting a $150 "instant savings" and $100 rebate.
- A two-year-old 8 GB iPhone 3G brings $36. On eBay, prices for the same model -- in various conditions, of course -- are all over the map, but it's not unusual to see it offered in the $200-range.
- A BlackBerry Curve 8330 -- an older but popular model of RIM's smart phone -- brings a sad $20. The same model is offered for at least three to four times that much on eBay.
