In an announcement by the carrier, it looks like they will be offering a trade-in program of their own. “Want a new iPhone 7 at no cost? For a limited time, beginning Friday, September 9, at 12:01 a.m. PST, Verizon is offering iPhone 7 32 GB at no cost after you trade in an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus. Have an iPhone 5, 5c, 5s or SE? Get up to $400 towards the purchase of your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Or trade in your Android or iPhone 4 device for up to $300 in trade-in value.”
Basically if your iPhone is of good working condition, you could almost get a free iPhone 7, although we reckon it’ll probably be quite hard to hit the $650 trade-in value, but hey, if you were planning on getting the phone anyway, we guess knocking off a few hundred bucks isn’t a bad thing, right?
