Call me some time...

With the switch from T-Mobile to Verizon, the company I work for has TONS of useless leftover phones. The bosses want me to put them up on eBay, but I'm probably just going to take them to one of those eBay consignment shops and let THEM deal with the hassle.

There's about 70 phones, including 30 or so from our previous contract with Nextel. Most of the phones are in fairly beaten up shape, and nearly all of them were the free phones the cellular companies toss at you when you sign up. I doubt we'll get anything for them. The only thing we'll probably get anything for are the Palm Treo 600's, and those are pretty badly beaten up. I figure we'll be lucky to get $50 each.

For some reason, although we had only about 12 Treos, the previous office manager had bought 50-something cases and 25 or so sync cables. I hope I can get at least a little something for those.

I spent most of the day figuring out which of the massive tangle of cables went to which phones, then bundling everything up nice and neat in little plastic baggies.
