Verizon iPhone pre-orders start on Feb. 3rd at 3am ET; offering up to $360 on AT&T iPhone trade-ins

“According to the email we’ve received, Verizon will begin pre-order sales at 3am Eastern on February 3rd,” Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors.

“Verizon is also allowing some existing AT&T iPhone customers to trade-in their iPhone for credit when buying a new Verizon iPhone 4,” Kim reports. “We not sure if this will be offered to non-corporate accounts, but the trade-in price list is as follows:”

iPhone 2G – 16GB: $60
iPhone 3G – 16GB: $105
iPhone 3Gs 32GB: $160
iPhone 4- 16GB: $280
iPhone 4 – 32GB: $360

  1. It is not enough to have the iPhone. Verizon, (sounding more evil, remember the anti-iPhone commercial they ran?) needs to make efforts to take customers away from At&t. Verizon is like Google. They don’t compete based on a better product, they compete to be a nemesis.

    At&t, now you have to step up. Give customers something to keep up with your nemesis. May I suggest, cheaper data plans? Or how about a voice plan starting at $19.99 I hardly talk on the phone! Or how about free texting with a data plan? 200MB plan comes free with 200 text messages. 2GB comes free with 2,000 text messages? Can’t be that hard!

  2. I’m moderately interested in moving to verizon and getting my wife in, too. But what happens in four months when iPhone 5 comes out? Could we trade up? No one’s saying. We definitely would rather wait a few months and get a far better phone than jump right in and be saddled with last year’s model for months to come.

    Yet another f-you to early iPhone 1 adopters

    Not sure how your reasoning works. I was an early adopter and bought the 1st gen iPhone a month after it came out. Two years later I sold it on eBay for $325 and bought a 3GS. Last summer, I sold my 3GS for $350 and bought an iPhone 4. I hope to do the same when the iPhone 5 comes out.

    I guess if you sit back and let tech pass you by, you’ll be screwed, but you could have easily taken advantage of a few chances to sell and upgrade.

  4. @El Guapo – That would be the strategy. Let ATT keep you up with the tech with subsidies. The worst month ever is month 25 of an ATT two-year contract. You pay as much as ever, but your technology is two years old.

    @Splat – I can relate, much as I believe what I wrote above.

    “The worst month ever is month 25 of an ATT two-year contract.”

    Huh? Aren’t there only 24 months in a two-year contract? As I sell each old phone, I make enough to buy the newest one with $ to spare (almost enough to cover cost of AppleCare). The worst month was the first one where I plunked $500 down for the original iPhone.
