You’ll receive $650 for a qualifying trade-in of iPhone 6/s and iPhone 6/s Plus as credit across 24-months when you purchase iPhone 7. The credit should show up on your bill within 2-3 cycles. To receive the full credit the line must be active for the full 2-years, which would come into play if you’re planning to upgrade next year.
Verizon isn’t too specific on device trade requirements, only saying that it “must be in good working & cosmetic condition.” No matter which iPhone 7/Plus you order, you’ll only receive a credit of $650 (effectively makes 32GB iPhone 7 free). Surprisingly, we haven’t seen an iPhone 7 promo from AT&T yet, despite all of its major competitors grabbing headlines with their pre-order offers.
After pre-ordering iPhone 7, your next move should be to pick up a solid case and a pair of Bluetooth headphones. I’d recommend Amazon’s iPhone 7 storefront as the best one stop shop for all accessories. Also, check out our recent roundup for even more iPhone 7/Plus case options.
Apple launched iPhone 7 pre-order first thing this morning and estimated delivery times for some models have already slipped. For full coverage on Apple’s latest smartphone, click here.
Here’s how to get your iPhone 7 for $0:
- Buy a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus with monthly device payments.
- During checkout, select the option to trade in your old device, or if you wish to trade in your device at a later time, log in to My Verizon and select “trade in old device.”
- After you have completed your trade-in appraisal, you will receive a box to return your old device.
AT&T has also thrown its hat into the ring with a free iPhone 7 trade in offers of its own. What’s more, DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse customers can also earn a $650 credit to offset the cost of iPhone 7 by adding “a new line to your wireless account from another provider.” Full details for all of AT&Ts current iPhone promos can be found here.
For a limited time, customers can also trade in an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, or iPhone 6S Plus that’s in good working condition and they can get an iPhone 7 32 GB free after $650 in monthly bill credits when they buy it on AT&T Next or AT&T Next Every Year with eligible service. To take advantage of this offer customers just need to own their current iPhone outright, or pay for the remainder of their remaining balance.
