    I hadn't seen this is the news, so I decided to go ahead and start a new thread. For those wanting to to trade in older Verizon iPhones for the iPhone 6, Verizon has quietly extended the promotion deadline by two weeks. The original deadline was 9/30, but the FAQ now reads 10/13. Happy hunting.

    Thanks for the heads up Will :)

    Now I wonder if they will extend the $60/mo 2gb plan as well...

    Either way, it's strange to me to see no difference in price between the 4 and the 5 for trade-in value :confused:

    Though it is a "discounted plan," I didn't know that I had a promo end date.

    I also think it's odd that the 4 & 5 fetch the same amount.

    Yeah, you are probably right. I thought I had seen it somewhere that the $60/2gb plan was a 'limited time' sort of thing but that could have just been the site I read it from jumping to conclusions. Sorry for the confusion :eek:

    No worries. I had had the sea thought and asked a few reps. They all gave me the, "Any promotion may expire at any time, but we don't haven't been given any information regarding this promotion."

    I just went to the $60/mo 2gb plan (it's a "loyalty plan" good for a year) and I'm hoping to be able to keep it when I get an iPhone 6. The regular price for that plan would be $ 90.

    Really? Only a year plan? That's odd, no? Is it in writing anywhere?

    not advertised - I have been customer of Verizon since 2001, wanted to get unlimited nationwide calling, and the rep at the Verizon store set it up for me.

    I've spoken to several reps and all of the conversations went something like this:

    That's a different topic for a different thread. (I have no idea, BTW.)

    If you switch to this contract, your contract will be set to expire one year from the date of switch, unless you already have a contract that is valid for more than 1 year into the future.

    You'll continue to get the $60/mo price after the contract expires.
