Buy the HTC One X, trade in your old Apple iPhone and HTC will give you a free urBeats headset
You might remember those urBeats earphones that HTC used to bundle with the purchase of a Beats Audio HTC model. Since these babies cost $99 retail, the manufacturer had to stop offering them free in the box. But the Taiwan based company does have a special promotion for those who love those earphones. Until October 21st, those with an older model Apple iPhone can purchase an HTC One X and then head over to the sourcelink to trade in any old Apple iPhone in working condition and without any damage to the screen. HTC will then send you those urBeats earphones that you love so much.

If you don't want the earphones, HTC will send you cash for your old Apple iPhone if you purchase an HTC One X. Check out the price calculator on the HTC website to see how much you can receive for your older iPhone. The Apple iPhone 4S in 16GB will bring you a $210 payment while an OG 16GB Apple iPhone will fetch you $15.

If you're buying the HTC One X and you have an older model Apple iPhone, the choice is yours. HTC will give you either cash, or the urBeats earphones. As for what HTC intends to do with all of those old units of Apple's iconic smartphone, we can't say for sure but we wouldn't be surprised to hear about a huge bonfire in Taiwan at the end of next month.

i still think HTC should make Beats Editions of their phones like HP does with their Laptops and just like HP make them completely matte black/white and have a big red Beats Logo on the back with the HTC logo being the same color as the rest of the phone and then make the capacative keys red like on the Rezound and the Sensation XE, include the headphones with them and charge $50-$100 more for them then the non-Beats Edition versions of the phones. i could see enthusiasts grabbing those up. o: oh and i have some Beats Solo HD's and i've listened to the iBeats and neither of them are nearly as bass heavy as my Skullcandy Heavy Medals. the Beats sound a little cleaner but the Skullcandies kill it when it comes to bass. i got mine really cheap but even though they normally cost $80 they're still worth a buy because you get an amazing life time warranty with em. if something happens to them you send em back and they email you a coupon code that covers the retail price of the headphones so you can go on their site and order a brand new pair of any color they have or even something else if you'd like. i've been using Skullcandies for like...6 years.

yeah , but 210$ for the 4S? People just bought that phone a year ago for like 800$...... this is called stealing. What im trying to say is: I'm a student, i cannot afford every year like $600 for a mobile phone. Back in 2010 when i got mine, I had to decide between the Htc Desire and iPhone 4. I went with the Desire because of Android. If I had made the other choice.. the iphone4, and just 2 years later get that phone traded for just less than $200. I'd be very mad.

You can sell a 4s for a lot more than $200. Unlike Android phones, iPhones actually hold their value well.
