Verizon Launches Trade-in Program, Incredible and Eris Worth More than DROID X?

For those of you wanting to ditch your  current device for some cash in hopes of purchasing one of the new models of phones on the market, then Verizon’s new trade-in service might be your ticket.  The new service allows you to input your current device plus its condition so that it can provide you with a dollar amount that VZW is willing to give you via giftcard.  Not a bad idea right?

Check out the trade-in value of our Droid family:

  • Droid 1:  $52
  • Droid 2:  $72
  • Droid X:  $124
  • Droid Eris:  $132
  • Incredible:  $152

Not a type-o.  The Droid Incredible and Droid Eris are both valued by Verizon as being worth more than the much newer and bigger Droid X.  I’ll reserve comment and allow you to all jump on this one.  Just keep it clean!  We’re all one big happy family remember?

    What about a samsung Droid Charge in great condition? I Paid alot of money forit at Verizon and it still works pretty great! Should I try to exchange it for money or wait till a newr version comes out? I’m kinda lost on this! Gazelle said $18!! thats not even worth the stamps!! This phone was about $5-600 when It first came out then my spose got an HTC & he passed on suddenly. He usually handled the phone stuff sos now I’m confused! Sos!
    What’s the best thing to do? I think that included a 32bit card & oth contract stuff Is it bad tobe unfer contract? I hope someone can tell me! I feel like i’m gettin’ Punk’d by them?!?

    I cannot get a signal where I live with my Droid X. My wife just got a IPhone 4 and she gets a signal in our house and never looses it. My Droid drops so many calls I have to use a land line. When I went to Verizons trade in sight my Droid X is worth 79.00 It was worth 419.00 when they sold it to me minus 100.00 rebate so 319.00, with a 2 year contract renewal, just 3 months ago. Now they are giving them away when you renew your contract. That’s just rotten anyway you look at it. 4 calls to tech support later, they finally came to look at the towers in my area and said the signal was fair to marginal and would be worse inside a building. They are of the opinion IT SUCKS TO BE YOU and said I should live with it or find another carrier. That makes my investment in the Droid worthless. Thanks Verizon, After buying the Droid X I looked online and could have saved alot of money I quess you live and learn. RULE THE AIR MY A–

    Well This should only apply to phones that have been superseded in the Verizon inventory system or in an attempt to level the supported product base to help advance the underlying mobile ecosystem. Thanks for sharing with us…

    $52 F'n dollars for my Droid 1.. $132 for Eris? umm Big red sucks the Big one .. man I'll get 4x's that for my Droid 1 on ebay with all the accessories and extra zagg skin.

    Dang.

    Listen guys, we should know that the word “WORLD” is code for LTE CAPABLE. With the current lineup, both droid 1 and 2 now have the MOTO WORLD as backup for the LTE move. It has also been speculated that the X will be capable of 4g. This is Imo why the trade incentive is so low on these devices. The ERIS and INCREDIBLE won't be able to make the transition and therefore require more incentive in terms of trade-in value or essentially a BUY BACK!!! This way they get to get these out of the system and get the consumer into a LTE capable device without telling them that their just bought equipment is obsolete. Make sense? By the way I have an INCREDIBLE and absolutely love the phone, so I'm not biased.

    Ofcourse Incredible is lot more powerful and uses Sense UI
    and users have always been demanding for the Droid Incredible , it was just the shortage which sks

    The D2 and X should not be in the list! They are current selling phones! This should only apply to phones that have been superseded in the Verizon inventory system or in an attempt to level the supported product base to help advance the underlying mobile ecosystem.

    I'll be happy to trade in my Droid X for an HTC product of the same size.I loved using the HTC Evo 4G (supplied by work) and found the Moto Droid X a huge disappointment. Unfortunately, Verizon is the only decent network for where we live right now.

    I dont see how Snapdragon(plastic) is more expensive than an ARM7(Consortium Course) CPU

    Lol!!! I sold my Droid 1on ebay for a whopping $350 right after the Droid X came out!

  • snowblind64

    Screw that! I sold my old Droid 1 for $240 on Craigslist after I got my early upgrade! A lot of people are willing to pay extra for a phone with no contract.

    Man that's a bunch of BULL?%#!, who do they think they are, Hell I hate sprint, but their price plans are better..

  • Sundaysbest

    Crack is Whack. Somebody's on some really good stuff over there at Verizon.

    Are they freaking nuts? I could get more on eBay

  • Justin

    I would like to trade in my iphane, but they said id have to pay them!

  • thescreensavers

    Storm is worth 8 bucks, I loled.

  • Thekenjirx009

    Perhaps because they want you to sell the eris and incredible? To buy the newer dx and droid 2

  • machinegun68

    $132 bucks for an Eris and your only gonna give me $52 for my Droid 1? What an insult.

  • Chris C.

    Fantastic….thanks for the heads up! Just dumped my wife's POS Eris (on 4th refurbished phone at present) for $132….we paid nothing for it. also got VzW to hook me up with new Droid X at 2 year contract price, without resetting contract term. Wicked. So….my Droid 1 will move to her and I get a new toy. :)

  • http://twitter.com/azurikai Austin Witherow

    I agree with the pricing, I'd much rather have an Incredible with Sense over the X.

  • jeremytheindian

    These phones (DX, Dinc, D2) must go for more on craigslist, right? I would pay those prices in a heart beat for a non contract locked handset.

  • Sdicker89

    What if you put a custom rom on the phone. Does that matter for the trade in? I put kaosfroyo rom on my droid eris but i want to send it in. Can i send it as is? If not, how do i revert back to stock?

  • cityoftreez

    That is crazy my friend only paid like $ 60 for his eris and now he can get 130 for it used thats madness!

  • impala79
