    I tried to trade a palm pre in. I was told they would not accept it because I bought the phone outright and not on contract or edge. I told them they need to train their staff better because I specifically asked when I pre ordered and said no problem then the guy helping the line out having us fill out paper said the same thing. Got up there tuff crap and a sorry we can't do anything is all I got.

    Traded in the 2013 Moto X. I was going to look for something cheaper, but didn't want to chance the whole postpaid only thing. It's only with about $75-$100 on eBay anyway.

    I planned on paying for it outright with an $800 gift card I have from a geek squad claim, but had to do the Next plan. I was able to do a $222 down payment though, plus use the gift cards for the taxes.

    I wouldn't want to do a 2 year contract for the gift card and wireless charger, but if you sign up for AT&T next, you can just pay the phone off anyway through AT&T, so what's the big deal about paying in full vs the next program?

    Got to BestBuy at 10 this morning and didn't have any issues trading in my Droid DNA for the gift card. For some reason though they discounted the price of the phone(bought outright) by $135 and then gave me a $65 gift card(how much the DNA was actually worth on their trade in system) which was put towards the phone. Got the free wireless charger too, now I just have to sell my S6 edge.

    buzzy3970,,,,,They took my T-Mobile trade-in because I'm with ATT and it is a postpaid phone. It's a ZTE Zinger Z677T. Walmart has them on sale for 19.99, marked down from 39.99. FYI, the man sitting next to me noticed what I was doing and wanted to leave and go by the phone and come back, but it would not have worked for him because he was with Verizon. His Best Buy rep, instead found one in the store on BB's shelf that would work with Verizon as a trade-in. It cost him 40.00, but at least he didn't have to trade in his Galaxy S something. Hope this helps.

    OK- I mentioned this in another thread- basically same as above with BB. For the Credit- you HAD to purchase on ATT Next, and then the most you could pay down was $222(for the 32 Gig model). Trade in systems were down for a while, and also got a $45 Activation rebate.

    Oh- and the $50 gift card we had to buy for pre-order...thats now sitting here too- what a waste- or a way to get you to spend more $$$ with them.
    Total $$ you had was $200 from Trade Credit, $45 gift cert for Activation rebate, and then the $50 gift card they made you buy to pre-order. Buying the 32 Gig ATT model- the MOST $$$ you could put down was $222. You now have these other 2 Gift Certs to use on accessories(like you really wanted to in the first place).

    I bought a Boost ZTE Speed at target. And since I added a new line (wanted a new number), I activated the phone for one day on Boost, ported the number to Verizon ($100 credit) and then got $200 for trading in the ZTE smartphone. All at my local Verizon store. Easy peasy

    EDIT: I didn't go through BB bc of the fine print about prepaid phones.

    Hey kodos78, were you able to transfer your contacts properly from your Microsoft account to your Android Phone? I get like a lot of copies and random email addresses... but I mean I synced my contacts from my hotmail account and somehow that's what I get. Its a bit untidy but even when I try to delete it just resyncs them. On my Microsoft Phone its not at all like that.
    Hmm, the problem is always have is dupes. But I run the merge tool in contacts and it is all clean now

    Well just left Best Buy and if it wasn't for the $200 gift cars I would have gone to the carrier. Systems were all screwed up and I h ave to go back to trade in the phone. I did get the charger and phone which I have to say is quite stunning. Its fast and the screen is about as clean as it can get. As for the battery nothing scientific here but I messed with the phone some and took a call for 30 minutes and have used 5% battery. The device has been online for 3 hours. I think Samsung might have a winner here.
    I had them simply do the normal trade in for my HTC One M7(19$), and then they simply discounted the cost of the phone 181$ to make up for their systems being down. As the systems were a complete piece of **** this morning :P

    I told them I lived an hour away, and drive a truck(so I am gone for long periods of time), and if they wanted me to come back I would go down the road to the sprint store and purchase it...................So they did the above mentioned method for me.

    When I went back they tried to say the same thing and I told them it's compete bs their the only ones that don't accept the tmobile trade in. Make the long sorry short I made her show me how she was entering it and guess what it took the trade in. Had to buy a zinger there for 30 but got the credit and also because of her screw up it didn't use my upgrade so now I still have one available so I guess it wasn't all too bad :-)

    Glad it all worked out for you! I also had to endure the trade-in server down time like many others, so I was sweating whether the ZTE would actually go through, but after a couple of hours, it made it. At least, they gave the whole family Samsung t-shirts.

    Nice thing is I found that old LG in a nightstand drawer, was worth nothing, but got a $200 gift card for it on this deal. As an added bonus through At&t, since I added a new line of service, I got another $200 gift card. Picked up a Zagg hd glass and a tech 21 evo tactical case. Pretty happy with the deal. Gotta get it a set up now.

    Does the phones carrier that you're trading in have to match the one you're upgrading to?

    It didn't for me. I traded in a very old Sprint phone and I'm currently on At&t.

    Tried to get the 200 dollar gift card at Best Buy for a verizon model. Wouldn't honor it because I was paying full price for the phone. Anyone have any luck getting it?

    They changed the policy. The only way to get the $200 gift card is to not buying the phone out right. You will need to be in some plan and activate the phone. They programmed this in to the system. Once the phone is activated by BestBuy, it is in their system. There is a selection and verification at the trade-in process that will verify that line activation then automatically bump the trade in to $200. I want to buy the phone out right as well. But the upgrade plan is fine as I can then pay it off immediately afterward.

    I used an HTC Incredible. I was going to buy it ouright but it required a plan and I am out of contract and on the new my Verizon plan so I just bought the phone on time and will pay it off when the first payment comes due. That way I pay the phone in thirty days, stay off contract and still got the $200 gift certificate.

    I traded in an old Tmobile Nokia Lumia 521 prepaid I had bought for $50 a couple of years ago to tinker with Windows Phone OS with, best buys trade in calculator had it at a trade in value of $2, they didn't even question it and gave me the $200 gift card. After that I then walked over to customer service and traded in my Note 3 and an old HTC one x I brought just in case they wouldn't take the lumia and got $180 gift card credit, they let me keep the chargers for all three as well, the hussle is real lol!

    I have Sprint and sent them a never used S3 prepaid phone that I bought last year during a black Friday sale for $70ish . I bought it thinking that since it was a Sprint Pre-Paid that I could get it activated on my plan. Only after I bought it did I find out that the Prepaid phones were "different" from the phones on the regular plans so it's sat in my junk drawer since Late November.

    When I was online with the sales rep I asked them specifically about if PrePaid phones were available for the $200 credit and they told me there were no special considerations of type of smartphone. Only that it had to be a functioning Smartphone. They emailed me a Prepaid return slip and I mailed it out to them a few days ago.
