Can you still turn in an AT&T iPhone 4 for a Verizon version?

    I heard this was possible when it was released? True? I switched to Verizon a few months ago, and still have my AT&T iPhone 4 uselessly laying around my house...

    I don't know where you heard this, but it is completely wrong.

    Sell the phone on Craiglist or eBay.

    The only way this would have been possible is if your father had bought the GSM version and he was still within the 30 day return period to go back and switch carriers.

    by "turn in" do you mean to trade in and get cash, gift card, or another iPhone on a different network?

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I thought the OP was asking to switch providers mid contract without penalties.

    I would offer eBay's green instant buy as a terrific option for you.

    Right now, they are quoting $307-$340 for an iPhone 4 in top condition.

    I sold my wife's 3G back in the spring and got $150.

    It may not be as much as you would get from an auction or craigslist, but it avoids an awful lot of hassle. You submit you item to sell, accept their offer, print a postage-paid shipping label, they get it, check it out (they will erase all your data if you didn't) and you will have your money through Paypal within days.

    Still?
    When was that even an option? And who did you turn your GSM iphone to get a verizon one and for what price?
    Maybe one of those Radio shack or Best Buy buy-back programs?

    Here ya go OP: http://www.trade-in.vzw.com/

    I would advise against this, as you could definitely get more if you use eBay or Craigslist to sell the phone. But it's up to you. If you're not interested in getting the most for the AT&T iPhone, the this is a quick, easy alternative.

    Doing a trade-in like this isn't going to get you out of your contract.
