I traded in an iPhone 8 purchased for $190 for an iPhone 12 mini & I traded in an samsung s9 purchased for $200 for the oneplu 8t+5g. This is for T-Mobile credits spread out for 24 months. I plan to stay with T-Mobile so its like getting new the phones for $390. Totally worth it.
Verizon took a 4S right before my 16gb iPhone 6 trade yesterday for my 12 with a $475 trade credit.Cool but I meant like trading in an iPhone 4 or something.
I forgot to say that this pertains to Verizon.
Im on chat with them now lolVerizon took a 4S right before my 16gb iPhone 6 trade yesterday for my 12 with a $475 trade credit.
I had my 4s in the car but like it from industrial design relevance to part with it, so the old 6 had to go
Correct. I’ve been with Verizon 20 years and have no intention of leaving. No illusions on value of old phones, or what Verizon is trying to lock me into.It sounds like what you are referring to is more along the lines of promotional credits to get you to sign up with the carrier for a new phone line / contract, isn't that right?
They are willing to incentivize you to join their service so giving a generous trade-in may accomplish that. It doesn't represent what the real value of the phone is, they are simply using the appearance of a high value for your older phone to get you to commit to them for a period of time.
Nothing wrong with that. If your old phone is just sitting around and you don't have any other use for it, great. But my suggestion is that you make the decision based upon what the resulting phone service cost will be for the period of the contract you'll be agreeing to.
