Verizon customers can get $200 credit for iPhone 4
Now, this offer may not be all that great considering the fact that the Verizon iPhone 4 retails for $650 and $750 for the 16 GB and 32 GB models, respectively. Here is the word directly from Verizon:
Current Verizon customers who purchased and activated new smartphones, feature phones or certified pre-owned phones between 11/26/2010, and 01/10/2011, are eligible to receive up to a $200 Visa debit card when they purchase an iPhone 4 at full retail price by 02/28/2011 and return their existing phone. Note: This offer is only available on consumer accounts with five lines or less, who are purchasing iPhone 4 through Verizon Wireless retail stores, telesales, or through verizonwireless.com.
So are there any Verizon customers whom recently purchased a phone that plans on taking advantage of this offer? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

i work for verizon wireless, this is not true, no one will be happy for the real deal. cant say anything other than the iphone will be diffrent than the at&t one.

No you don't. The difference is it isn't on at&t. If you live in California that's a feature.
But hey I'm just trolling. I already have the best phone on the market. Evo 4g. And I live in wimax coverage. 8x faster than your finest day

Heck NO the Droid(s) are waaaayyy better than the iphone4 anyday, why you think they are doing this to compete with the Droid takeover thats going on at Verizon. I really dont understand why verizon is even going with apple in the first place i n\know its a money things cause its a big company and all but with the blackberry playbook, samsung galaxy tab, motorola xoom tablet, moto bionic, htc thunderbolt, and whatever is coming just around the river bend (pocahontas my daughter watched it last night lol) why would we jump on the band wagon on a device thats getting stomped by the android OS, i really dont even want to sell the iphone 4 to customers as a salesmen i feel like they are gonna lose out on all the greatness of a android, cause they are just so GASed up about iphone iphone iphone,

U r a moron. None of those do the apps from itunes. Droid is only better to some. The some that like to wait for updates, have crap apps that only work on some of the droid phones, and want to download apps that do basic things the phone doesnt!

only reason you have to use Itunes to download apps on Iphone is because Apple likes to force you to use it for certain things, whereas Android you can download everything available form the market witthout syncing to your PC.

How much do you think you will honestly make on an Iphone? I've been hearing AT&T reps tell me since the phone came out that there is only money in the accessories and even at that Apple's cost for their proprietary accessories are significantly higher than that of 3rd party ones. Think about it... The average Android device costs anywhere from 400 to 600 dollars while the iphone costs 600 to 700 dollars.

Who cares about the credit? Verizon will make all that money back when you go and buy an iPhone 5 for full retail price out of contract. Don't fall for it. Might be best to wait it out.

Are any of you maggots that are talkin about how much some will/won't make even in sales? Probably not b/c your posts don't even make sense. The phone you sell to a customer doesn't matter b/c you don't get paid for the equipment sale (except on acc.). You make money off of the price plan you sell...to agree with jammal & moet007 who cares about the phone, any smartphone sale will be good for profit. There is a huge demand for iP4 among Verizon customers just b/c its the iP and what that translates to is money. If you are talkin to At&t reps and they're sayin the only money to be made is in acc. either they don't know anything or they have the worst commission structure in the industry. Consumers go to retail stores with the intent to spend the least amount of money possible to get what they want. If you're in sales...you sell, you don't clerk. Most consumers don't have a problem paying extra for any acc. if they see the value in purchasin those extras.

I make comission on both equipment and price plans. Stop ranting about the payout tiers of just one company. Thank you.

I'm talkin corporate stores kiddo and also the discussion at hand which was Verizon sales. No other company was bein talked about so please read the history first before you try to be an ass. if you don't work for the company i'm referring to...shut your mouth. if you work for a retailer...kill yourself.

Wow, you are the reason I get so many of my customers that are fed up with VZ Corporate stores. There are more ways to get paid by Verizon than the poor way that you get paid. I DO SELL Verizon and I DO Get paid on Equipment AND rate plan. Don't be an ass in public anymore please.

I don't know what other commission structures are but here our commission is completely correlated with the cost of our phones. If we sell a certain phone on a certain plan we make x amount of commission. Say we sell the same plan with a higher cost phone, our commission subsequently will be lower because we factor in the cost of the phone as well. As with most RETAILERS of Verizon this will be the case. This may not affect Direct locations as I am not sure of their commission payout. I speak for the rest of us in the retail industry when I say I will personally be taking a hit on gross profit by selling this phone. Thanks for the insult though, it really does show your true colors.

Exactly...RETAILERS, not corporate locations.

Talk about price gouging on the retail price, looks like Verizon was a good fit with Apple after all.
