    Looks like the $100 is for trade in or Edge. I'm buying outright so I guess its a no-go for me
    Can you sign up for Edge and then pay off the balance in full a month or two later?

    If I sign up with Edge I lose unlimited, so that's not gonna work.

    Can we do this trade in deal on the website Thursday? Or is it in store only?
    My guess is either.

    I wonder if you'll be able to do the trade in at a store such as Best Buy? I have a $50 voucher from BB for my next phone purchase and would like to use that as well, if possible.

    Still curious about this code, though. Can you share?
    The code looks customer specific, i.e. it's not "200OFF" or anything like that.

    Too bad I can't do this and keep my unlimited data. My paperweight BB would be perfect for it.

    I'm very curious as to the details of this offer. Definitely looking to hang on to my current phone (Galaxy Nexus) as a backup, but would be interested to see if it would work for my 4 year old LG Ally. Still works fine, just hasn't been used in years.

    Did you talk to a sales rep? How'd they go about bumping it up for you?

    So uh...does this mean I can buy a $15 cheapo blackberry on eBay and give it to Verizon for the $100 credit? If so that would be sweet

    LOL - I just found another old Blackberry under my desk! So I have an 8830 World Edition, Curve 8330 and Bold 9650. We are planning on getting 2 of the Turbos so my fingers are crossed they'll accept a couple of these. All 3 of them have accepted a charge and seem to be working just fine - I was actually pretty surprised since 2 of them date from 2008 and the other is 2010.

    How did the customer rep give you the code to take you up to $200 trade in?

    If you read the print it will only let you use the promotions one at a time. The rep on the phone pointed this out to me too.

    Easy way to get around it is go to two different Verizon stores!

    I have an old Windows prepaid my daughter uses as a music/game device.

    I was thinking of getting her something better for her birthday anyway. Just not sure what. She has an android tablet.

    Where are you seeing the "print"? We are moving 4 lines off a very old plan to a new Edge more everything plan. 3 of the lines will be getting new phones. 2 will be Turbos & 1 will be a GS4. Why would there be an issue getting the trade in for 2 separate phones?

    CNET is also seems to be saying if you get the Turbo (and don't have Edge) that you can still upgrade whether your contract is up or not. My contract is up soon but if this is true no need to wait at all.

    Droid Turbo supercharges Verizon's franchise with 2-day battery - CNET

    "Verizon is offering a few promotions for the Droid Turbo, including a $100 trade-in value for an old smartphone and the purchase of the device. The carrier is also waiving its upgrade fees if a customer purchases the Turbo. The carrier is also offering any customer who damages their Turbo screen a one-time free replacement."

    Waiving upgrade fees is different than allowing you to upgrade early.

    Just read the article and I agree, they won't be allowing anybody to break contracts. You will have to wait to buy the phone at a discount if you are still in a contract...or they may try to sell it to you on the Edge program so they can squeeze more out of you while on contract.

    I'm willing to test what they mean by ANY phone. My brother's old Droid X has 2 black circles in the screen about the size of a dime each. Almost every surface other than the buttons, camera, and screen have been ground down by a dremel, and the labeling off the buttons are ground off too. It looks absolutely terrible haha. I wonder if they'll give me the 100 for it. Still boots up though!

    Well it did seem too good to be true but I am going to ask at the store what the offer really amounts to. Anyway my contract is up on 11/24 and a customer service rep told me this morning that anyone can upgrade in the week leading up to their contract date (I have never seen that in print anywhere). For me that's just about three weeks - plenty of time to let early adopters review the phone in detail. I can already say the Turbo is not perfect (what is?) but it seems like the way to go.

    You can only apply the promotions as limit 1 per customer. So only 1 of the Turbos could use the $100 trade in promo.

    Again, you could easily go to another store and upgrade the other Turbo, I'm sure.

    OK so I'm a bit confused on how the $100 back works. Can you apply the $100 credit towards the purchase of the Turbo or is it just that you get $100 credit back when trading in and purchasing the Turbo? Seeing the similar offer for the iPhone suggests the latter.
