    I bought my phone in the same store where I tradded up the admiral. Not sure if buying it online would make a difference or not. The admiral was eligible. They have multiple programs. One is a VZW program and only the d3 and x2 qualify. The other is a motorola program and the admiral qualifies for that program. The sales rep at the store tried to tell me there was only the d3 and x2 program. That's why I had to ask for a manager. If you have questions I would recommend you call the customer support line. The guy I talked 2 was super helpful and answered all my questions about the program. You could even have the CSR on the phone add a note to your account so the store sales rep will have an easier time finding the motorola trade up program.
    the admiral is a sprint phone correct?

    I was just denied today on a Motorola Admiral with a cracked screen. Customer service for Verizon stated the condition was irrelevant, but the manager in the store said the phone had to be in fair condition. (no cracked screen, water damage, etc.) This would have scored me a $100 instant rebate/credit for my account with no box otherwise.

    I called back in to customer service and they went to bat for me calling the store, but she said the manager was talking in circles. Funny, I thought the same thing when I was there this morning...
    The Motorola code is MOTOJB100 link (Motorola - A Google Company) and is not related to the Verizon recycle program (you have to make this clear). The admirals are cheap on Ebay, just make sure you get one in FAIR condition that can be turned on with a clean ESN.
    Persistence pays off. Just got back from a different corporate store and I was able to get the $100 credited to my account at the kiosk via an in store gift card. I used a Sprint Moto Admiral with a broken screen, no battery and no back. ($7 eBay) The rep just used the above code for the moto trade up program, the esn from each phone and had me out of there in 15 mins.

    does this only work if you are upgrading or buying a new phone? will they still give credit or gift card if you are not buying service right then and there? also, does this work only when buying a new moto device?

    Yep only works for a moto upgrade. They have to activate at the time of purchase.

    Just got my $100 card! After paying $7 for a broken phone, I just got $100 for a net gain of $93. Not too shabby.

    That's great. I have an old droid x that's been lying in a drawer for over a year. Did you have to give the manager the promo code?

    I had the promotion pulled up on my Maxx browser with the Admiral and Maxx selected. The CSR had not heard of the promotion so he asked to take my Maxx to his manager to confirm. Hey came back and said no problem. He entered the information, told me I would get an email. I received it he then asked me what I wanted to do with the card. I told him that I wanted it applied to my bill. He put in the information and it was applied to my bill.

    I just got my admiral in the mail paid $20 and it looks brand new! I have my son playing angry birds on it hopefully he will beat the phone up a little until I go to the Verizon store in the weekend. If anybody want the link from where I got it on eBay just let me know.

    Thanks for this post. My wife actually had an Admiral on Sprint a couple years ago, but no one mentioned the trade up program when we bought her Droid Mini two weeks ago. I took it in to the store yesterday, along with the Droid Mini box and receipt and got my $100 gift card.

    Just to clarify here: Nobody is being asked for a purchase receipt or the bar code from the original packaging - correct?

    I'm eligible for an upgrade and would like to get the MAXX but $300 is just an idiotic price. If I could shave $100 off of that I'd feel much better about it.

    Hope this works. Just bought an old Admiral from eBay.

    The Verizon store here in Chico generally is a hassle. I don't think I've ever been there without having them lie to me about something. I don't anticipate smooth sailing but am willing to give it a shot.

    Can you do this even if you paid full price for the Maxx? Is this an upgrade kind of deal? Also I only see them for Sprint, does it have to be a verizon one?

    This post needs major clarification here.

    What program are you referring to? You're telling me that verizon is accepting phones for Motorolas trade up? And the list of devices are the same?

    Do we need proof of purchase?

    I'm confused as to how these people are doing this since. Wouldn't an eBay receipt not be adequate proof of purchase?

    If anyone here has comcast, they have a promotions department that offers 100 visa card or 10 a month off comcast bill for one year. Free fedex shipping. Must get phone by mail order.

    So this is what I have been able to put together, it seems pretty straight forward:

    The Motorola code is MOTOJB100 link (Motorola - A Google Company) and is not related to the Verizon recycle program (you have to make this clear). The admirals are cheap on Ebay, just make sure you get one in FAIR condition that can be turned on with a clean ESN

    Use that code or tell them that code, bring the phone in, they give you a 100 dollar gift card or credit on your account. You don't need a receipt.

    I just did this a few days ago. Bought an admiral, no receipt required, and brought it in to Verizon. Bought the maxx on the equipment installment plan, paid full price, and after 2 store managers and 3 reps, 1of them figured out the trade in and gave me the $100 gift card which I applied to my bill immediately.

    This is the trade up through Motorola. Verizon is just fulfilling for Motorola. If you had att you would mail the handset to another fulfillment company.

    After seeing this thread I dug out my old D3 and got my $100 applied to my bill this afternoon. The rep told me he was told the program will end next month.
