    I used Verizon's own website and got a trade-in value of $183 for my HTC Rezound.
    That rice included a promo code on a coupon given to me by a VZW corporate store
    associate. The phone has every factory accessory in the original box. It was activated
    and used for only 1 or 2 hours, then deactivated. It sat in my desk for a couple of
    months unused, which I why I wanted to get rid of it. $183 in VZW gift card is pretty
    good, no? No hassles of trying to sell it. The gift card can be applied to a monthly
    bill or purchase of other VZW stuff.

    I accepted the offer and already shipped the phone. In fact, the tracking page shows
    the phone was delivered on Monday.

    Here's the thing.... I just remembered that I had completely forgotten to restore the phone....

    It was unlocked/rooted but I relocked it... which resulted in "RELOCKED" being
    displayed when booting into recovery. (not sure if VZW trade-in dept will actually
    check for that)

    Worse yet... I had the leaked ICS rom on there and all I did was returned it to
    the factory default to wipe my personal data. (but that still returned it to a fresh
    copy of the latest leaked ICS rom) Whoever turns it on will see the set-up menu.

    Should I expect to get the phone back after VZW rejected it?

    Why not do wire trick and then turn on security flag and it'll read as S-ON like nothing was ever touched.

    I'm sure they will just plug it in and completely re flash everything. I have no reason to say so though. Just deny deny deny

    I never performed S-OFF.

    Besides, I never did anything to the phone. Verizon was the one who sent the ICS via OTA.
    I had absolutely nothing to do with it. Also, I can confirm the US govt's story that no UFO
    or alien creature had ever landed on this planet. It never happened.

    They didn't. That was a joke on his part regarding denying having any personal responsibility for ICS being on the phone in question.

    You gave up your Rezound for $183?! The ear buds alone are like $90. You could've pulled at least $300 on eBay, man.
    Reagan, I am disappoint.

    Reagen really wanted jellybean obviously. Since VZW treats the Rezound like a RHSC (:P), he/she/it couldn't wait for a dev to bring JB to the Rezound.

    Of course I kept the Beats headphones!!! I emailed VZW after I got the $183 quote.
    They specifically told me not to include the LTE SIM card, microSD card, and the headphones.

    The sad thing is that I found another reputable online trade-in store that offers $215
    for the HTC Rezound. (this trade-in company works another cellular carrier)

    no joke... I have no idea what ICS means. Why does ICS have anything to do with phones?
    ICS stands for International Continence Society - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    You didn't hear it from me and I was never here.

    since the folks handling my VZW trade-in has the final say, I guess I'll find out in a day or two.

    (it's like the one about the gorilla who bought a valid ticket, but was politely asked to leave
    the Bolshoi Ballet gala,
    unfortunately)

    anyway, I'm now hoping VZW rejects the trade-in and sends the Rezound back to me.... because
    there's a MUCH better trade-in offer($215) from an even more reputable trade-in company (don't want
    to say the name, because other people reading this thread may end up flooding that company with
    Rezound trade-in... but I'll reveal the name after my trade is finalized... yes, I know that sounds
    awfully selfish... but $30 extra is still $30 )

    Well, you were always one to promote trickle down economics. Now we just have to find out why the hell it doesn't trickle.

    It's doesn't sound selfish... it is selfish. but understandable in these times. They(verizon) are not going to reject it. They just take the phone and flash it or send it to the repair center and repair the defect and then flash it.

    that's cool....

    what I don't understand is this.... when I used the trade-in calculator, my HTC Rezound
    was quoted $50 highter than my VZW Samsung Galaxy Nexus. (same like-new condition)
    but I love both of my GN(CDMA and GSM) and have absolutely no plans to get rid
    of them, at least not until the next Google Nexus smartphone shows up!
