Hi guys ! To get the $649.99 trade in credit do I need to order iphone 7 or 7 plus on the verizon website? Or can I also buy the phone from my local verizon store and get the $649.99 credit after I trade in my iPhone 6S?

Anyone had any experience with this please share. Thanks!

You can get the credit when you purchase in store (I've done it with both the 7 I have and the 7 Plus I've ordered for my wife).
You must purchase the device on their installment plan and they will credit back over the 2 year installment period. There is a 2-3 month delay before the credit starts being applied.
You (from what I understood) only get the full credit if you pay out the 2 year agreement. I'm not sure how it will work if you upgrade (as you can do) via the installment plan.

What if I purchase the iPhone 7 under their installment plan from the Apple Store instead?

Have no idea as the nearest Apple store from me is around 130 miles. I imagine it works pretty much the same if you purchase it through their installment payment process - I think it's the IUP program they have.

Help - So I figured out I can get an iPhone 5c on ebay for about $100 and trade it in for $400 towards an iphone 7. If I do this at the store, do they need to see the phone now or just when I actually receive my new iphone 7? I'm not sure I'll get it by the 30th. Also, I tried to do it online, but there doesn't appear to be a way to order to iPhone 7s and do a trade-in on both of them. is this possible?
