    Are you "trading" with a friend? Or do you mean you want to trade in your phone to your carrier and get a new phone from them? If the latter, then don't worry about duds or anything else. Get the new phone, and if it works as it should, great. If not, bring it back and exchange for a new one.

    My advice ... don't trade w/ a friend, and/or don't buy from anyone other than your carrier or an authorized dealer of the phone you want.

    Trading. But not with a friend.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Contract not up for another year and a half.

    You might want to look at what the contract buyout might be verses what you can sell the phone for online? Could be a wash or better.

    I've never traded phones, but the same logic I do when selling/buying mine still likely applies. Make sure you do the trade at the carrier store. That way you can verify their phone has a clean IMEI and isn't on some payment plan. If it's on a payment plan and they stop paying it after doing the trade, then that phone will get blacklisted. Also, just test out as much as you can to make sure it isn't damaged. It may look perfect on the outside, but who knows how the internals are especially if it ever got in contact with water. Play some audio, test out the mics (phone call, recording, etc), and shoot some pics.
