Best Buy’s Buy Back program free from February 6th to 26th?

According to a report filed by Droid-Life, electronics retailer Best Buy will be allowing consumers to opt-in to its recently announced Buy Back Program, free of charge, from February 6th to the 26th. Best Buy hopes the giveaway will draw attention to its new offering; often referred to by the company as “future proofing.” What else will BB be doing to draw attention to said program? Well, they’ll be running a Superbowl commercial during the third-quarter of this year big game staring… Justin Bieber. Sigh. Regardless, if you plan on purchasing a phone, laptop, or television around that time, why not get in on the Buy Back program for free?

UPDATE: We’re being told that Best Buy Mobile will be offering the Buy Back program free to customers from February 6th to the 26th; all other departments will have the promotion running from the 6th to the 12th. More →

We have some good news for North American BlackBerry users this morning as RIM has finally completed its upgrade to BIS 2.6.

In case you forgot what else BIS 2.6 brings to the table, feel free to hit up the jump and for a quick refresher course — but before you do we have to clear one thing up: if you want to be able to make use of IMAP Gmail, you have to delete your account and re-add it from within your BIS admin.
