    Is it as simple as bringing in your old phone and they give you credit toward a new phone?

    It is literallythat simple. Don't expect to get much for it though. $208 for a 32GB iPhone 5 that looked brand new...

    Do you need to bring the box and charger?

    Also curious about this. I've already ordered my 5S through AT&T, so I guess I'd be interested in knowing if I can simply trade my old phone in (once the new one arrives in November or whenever) and have a credit toward the next release.

    Wow! Only $208 for the 32 GB iPhone 5? I traded my 32 GB iPhone 5 in at AT&T and they gave me $310.00, which served nicely then to offset the early upgrade. I wound up paying less out of pocket than I would have if I'd had the full upgrade eligibility. Since I really had not planned to do this, I didn't have anything else with me, just the iPhone itself. So, that way I got to keep my charger, lightning cable, earbuds, etc. Nice!!!

    From what I understand about the Apple trade-in program you need to do it at the time you are buying the new iPhone in the store.

    Box they don't care about, I know that much. I believe they want the charger (not earbuds). I didn't do it myself, but I saw people trading theirs in, and they definitely did not have a box with them.
