Verizon offers up to $1000 for cracked or water damaged phone

Beginning Thursday, April 1, new and existing Verizon customers can trade in a cracked or water damaged phone and get up to $1,000 off a selection of new 5G phones with a port-in and select Unlimited plans.

That means cracked, broken, and even phones that no longer turn on can help make your next device more affordable. Yes, we know it’s April Fools’ Day, but trust us — this offer is #NoJoke. Act now, though, because this offer is only available for a limited time. — Verizon

MacDailyNews Take: Of course, there are conditions, but, hopefully this Verizon works for some of you and you can get something of value for that cracked or water damaged phone that you might have stuck in a drawer somewhere.


  1. There are plenty of cellular services that use the Verizon network which cost half or less than half of the cost of Verizon. The one I use gets me 2 lines unlimited for $57 a month. I couldn’t come close to that rate on Verizon.
