    Anybody that submitted it with a code actually get the return envelope yet? My submission date is 12/4 and I still have not received the return envelope. My device has to be in their hands and approved within 30 days of my submission date and so far they've used 9 of those days. I emailed them a few days ago via the "contact us" link in my confirmation email, but haven't heard back. Been on hold waiting to talk to someone for a half hour now. Verizon blows.

    Edit: Finally talked to someone at VZW. He said they've been backlogged on sending out the shipping materials, and they're averaging 3 weeks for customers to receive them. I said, so that leaves me 9 days to package it up (over the holidays no less) and get it to you and have it inspected and confirmed. He said yes, I will receive the packaging materials before 30 days is up and they'll honor the promotional offer if they receive it after 30 days (assuming it inspects fine) since it's their delay.

    Not gonna lie, I don't trust VZW as far as I can throw my Droid Turbo, but we shall see. :\

    ^^ Sorry to hear about the delay. Just as a heads-up, word is for online orders that you can go into VZW stores sometimes and do the trade-in right there, if you have a store nearby and want to bypass the wait. Supposedly this is up to the store's discretion and some may refuse and say that you have to do it via online/mail-in. Always good to call in beforehand to check.

    I have been checking the VZW website to make sure my local store has the DT in stock. They always had the red, black, and BN. Of course I just check again and with 4 days to go before I can get the phone they are out of stock on the black and the BN (the one I was going to get). Go figure. I hope they restock quickly!!

    I bought mine outright to keep unlimited data. I chatted w/ a VZW rep yesterday and she said that I could do the $100 rebate trade thing and confirmed that I had bought it outright and didn't want anything to affect my data. (Printed it out....just in case!)

    How would you go about doing this, sending the phone to VZ or bringing it to a store? Please keep us posted as I want to do the same (buy outright to keep my unlimited data plan).

    Vzw text me a code. I went to the website, filled out the forms and put in the code. They will ship a padded envelope for it

    I went to my local corporate store at lunch today. Got the 64GB BN Turbo (they only had the BN is 64 in stock at the moment). Traded in my wifes old Droid Incredible for a gift certificate which they applied right to my purchase. The rep said that phone would have gotten $5 on a normal trade in, lol. They tried to push a bunch of accessories on me as usual but I said no thanks, just activate the phone. Did the software update and am getting everything set up the way I like. So far I'm loving it. :-)

    I wanna say that the $100 trade in promo goes thru the end of the month. If you're on the More Everything plan with 10gb or higher, I suggest buying the phone on EDGE, it comes out much cheaper and you still get the 100 bucks trade in.

    Wow, you're really lucky. I just chatted with VZ and they told me the deal only applies with a contract purchase. I called and the guy told me to go to the store and see if a manager will push it through. I went to the store a couple of weeks back and the salesman I spoke to checked and said no.

    Just traded my Maxx in (2 yr contract) for a new Turbo. Had to send the Maxx back ,(only 6 months into the contract). Switched to "Edge" on "More Everything" with 10 GB data plan. Phone is virtually free. For purchasing a new Turbo on the Edge program, I am still eligible to return a working smartphone for the $100. Sent in my old RAZR.

    The program ended - you got your device on the last day.

    How long should it take to get the refund? I sent in an iPhone about 3 weeks ago and have not received anything.

    You should get an email with the gift card info - according to a post above, Verizon is running behind getting them out but no surprise there.
