AT&T goes for Verizon’s jugular with huge trade-in discount for the best Android phones
What do you need to trade in to get $800 off?
While the full list of eligible devices is simply too long to get through without going mad, we’re just going to give you a few samples to understand a little bit of what you’re dealing with here:
- Samsung Galaxy S, SII, SIII and up
- Galaxy Note and older
- Galaxy A50, A42 5G, and A70
- Apple iPhone 7 and up
- iPhone SE (2nd Gen)
- Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3a and up
- LG V50 ThinQ, Velvet 5G, Wing 5G, and Stylo 6
- OnePlus 6T and up
- OnePlus Nord, Nord N100, N10 5G, and N200 5G
- Moto Z4
- Moto G Stylus and G Stylus 5G
- Motorola One 5G and One 5G Ace
- ZTE Red Magic 3 and Red Magic 5S
Believe it or not, the ancient Galaxy S II is valued at $800 in 2022… even if it doesn’t work.
In contrast, iPhone 13 Pro Max buyers, for instance, can currently qualify for a modest $350 discount with a Galaxy S8 trade-in. And the best thing about these killer deals is that your used Galaxy S4 (or Note 3, or S5 Active, or iPhone 7) doesn’t even need to power on or come with a functioning screen to be valued at $800 by AT&T. That’s right, broken phones with shattered screens will be accepted… as long as they’re part of the extended aforementioned group.
What are the terms and conditions?
As you may have figured out by now, monthly installment agreements are obligatory, and your savings will be applied to your account in the form of bill credits over the three-year duration of said, well, contract.
Both new and existing customers can join the $800 off party, with the activation or retention of postpaid unlimited wireless service at a minimum of $75 a month (for new subscribers “before discounts”) being essentially the final major requirement you’ll have to consider before making your buying decision.
