Home / News / Verizon Is Giving Away High-End Phones to Users Who Switch to New Unlimited Plan
Literally within hours of revealing its all-new ‘Unlimited’ plan Monday afternoon, Verizon Wireless has launched yet another enticing promotion that’s sure to attract the attention (and pocketbooks) of customers looking to get their hands on the latest phones.
For a limited-time, new customers who opt to take advantage of Verizon’s new ‘Unlimited’ plan, will be able to trade in their existing smartphone, and in exchange, will receive one of the carrier’s hottest smartphone offerings for free. And when we say ‘hottest’, we’re talking some of the most advanced and feature-packed smartphones currently available.
Which High-End Phones Can I Choose from?
Apple’s iPhone 7
iPhone 7 Plus
Google’s Pixel or Pixel XL
Moto Z Droid
Moto Z ‘Force’ Droid
Samsung’s Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge
LG V20, and more
How It Works
After walking into your local Verizon store and making the trade, customers will receive up to $792 in bill credits; and while those credits won’t begin posting to your account for 2-3 bill cycles, they will nevertheless be applied, as a reimbursement for the new device purchase over the course of 24 months.
You’ll have to switch over to Verizon’s new ‘Unlimited’ plan, which features monthly rates starting at just $80 for one line, $120 for two, $160 for three, or $180 for four. Additional lines can be added thereafter for just $20 apiece, with a limit of 10 lines per account.
Subscribers will also have to enroll their account in auto-pay, which will automatically charge a linked debit/credit card or deduct from a checking account each month.
Here’s the Catch
Here’s the catch, though: Verizon is being rather picky in regards to what models can be traded in under the terms of the promo — and it should also be noted that only devices in functional condition will be accepted. While it would certainly be amazing if you could finally get rid of your battered-up Blackberry Bold or Samsung Galaxy S2 and get a brand-spanking-new device in exchange, Verizon is unfortunately limiting eligible trade-ins to the following devices:
Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge+
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
Galaxy Note 5
LG’s G5 and V20
Have a different device but still want to take advantage of this offer? Verizon will also accept the following superb and fully-functional phones with the addition of a $5 per month surcharge.
