T-Mobile Launches Phone Trade In Program

T-Mobile is introducing a retail Trade-In program aimed at giving customers a “cost-effective way to purchase a new phone and upgrade to America’s largest 4G network.” T-Mobile customers with existing handsets will be able to earn money that can be used toward the purchase of a new handset especially those running on T-Mobile’s 4G network. Customers can earn up to $300 with the trade in of their old devices, even devices that belong on the networks of other carriers. Devices must meet a set of minimum criteria including being fully functional, having an intact and working display and being free of liquid damage and corrosion.

T-Mobile’s trade in program will be available at any T-mobile store in partnership with The Wireless Source, a leader in consumer electronics programs. T-mobile representatives will be able to determine the trade in value of each device and process a check for the quoted amount via a mail-in rebate process. Customers will receive a voucher, shipping label and bubble pack to ship their device to TWS and then sent a check in the amount of the quote.

“T-Mobile is committed to providing the latest, most innovative and affordable technology to new and existing customers,” said Ami Silverman, senior vice president of sales, T-Mobile USA. “If device purchases can be made even more affordable through the value offset of T-Mobile’s Trade-In program, we want customers to have that option. We encourage them to take advantage of it so they can stay connected no matter what their budget, current device or mobile provider.”

T-Mobile USA Launches Trade-In Program for Used Handsets

T-Mobile Trade-In program enables customers to save on new device purchase whether opting for the latest messaging device or trading up to one of the fastest smartphones running on America’s Largest 4G Network

BELLEVUE, Wash. — May 17, 2011 — T-Mobile USA, Inc. today introduced a retail Trade-In program, aimed at giving customers a cost-effective way to purchase a new phone and upgrade to America’s Largest 4G Network. T-Mobile’s Trade-In program provides customers with the ability to trade existing mobile devices for money that could be used toward the purchase of a new handset — including any new smartphone running on T-Mobile’s 4G network.

T-Mobile is dedicated to making the latest wireless devices and mobile Internet services more affordable to more people. Through the Trade-In program, customers can offset the cost of a new phone purchase by up to $300 with the trade in of their old device. Even devices from other wireless carriers are eligible as long as they meet the minimum criteria, i.e., being fully functional, having an intact and working display, and being free of liquid damage or corrosion.

Customers can take advantage of the Trade-In program at any T-Mobile retail store. In partnership with The Wireless Source (TWS), a leader in consumer electronics collection programs, a trained T-Mobile representative will determine the trade-in value of each device and a check for the quoted amount will be given to the customer via a mail-in rebate process. Customers receive a voucher, shipping label and bubble pack mailer and simply ship the old phone to TWS at their convenience. They will then be sent a check from TWS in the amount of the quote once the device is received in good working condition.

    Save your time and respect for yourself. Go to ebay, craiglist or somewhere else. My estimate for perfectly working slide was a whopping $60!

    What do they do with all these used phones?  I cannot find a single store in my area that sells used phones (except for a few stands at a roadside flea market).
    When will there be a GameStop-type store for phones?

      When I say “single store” I do not mean a Tmo store.  I realize they do not sell used phones.

    I purchased a Nokia X2 from T-mobile in September for $62.49.  I have not had any luck with the phone.  Sometime the phone will call the number I want and sometime it will not.  It’s very frustrating.
    I have called numerous times for technical support and been connected to people that I cannot under-
    stand.  I don’t mean to be rude, but I simply can’t understand them.  I really dislike this phone.  I would like to trade it for another phone, preferably a touch screen phone.  I have a hard time with the small numbers and letters.  Can you help, please.      Melo
