HTC once again extends the deadline to qualify for a trade-in deal with the HTC One

HTC once again extends the deadline to qualify for a trade-in deal with the HTC One
With the HTC One now delayed until the end of next month in most markets, the Taiwan based manufacturer had one order of business that it had to take care of, which was adjusting the dates on its trade-in deal for its new flagship model. This is not the first time that HTC had to make adjustments to the dates of the offer, which awards a pre-paid Visa gift card worth at least $100 to those trading in their old smartphone to purchase the HTC One. The actual value of the gift card will be $100 or the value of the trade-in, whichever is higher.

To start, you need to go to HTC's website, which you can access by clicking on the sourcelink, and signing up with your email address to pre-register for the deal. This must be done by April 4th and once you've pre-registered for the trade-in, you must purchase and activate your HTC One by April 30th, 2013. Then you need to take a copy of the proof of purchase, which must show the unique IMEI number of your new HTC One, along with your trade-in and mail it to HTC with a postmark dated no later than May 31st, 2013. The trade-in must be fully functional with no liquid damage or damage to the screen. It also should be deactivated.

With the deadline for registering rapidly approaching, we would suggest you do it now, even if you are not sure about whether or not you are going to pick up the HTC One. It would be quite a bummer to decide to purchase the phone after all, and realize that you don't qualify for the gift card because you never pre-registered.

HTC one is getting delayed and is not launched in major markets till now. I am from India and we barely have HTC one X+ or Butterfly here till now. Looking at this pace i believe we should get HTC one some time in Q4 or maybe Q1 of 2014. By that time we might already have S5 or Note 3 available here. A phone with such great features should launched asap in both developed and developing markets. This were Samsung and Apple beats HTC. Evene Sony has made sure there new flagship is avail;able all over the world on time.

I agree, they should release this gorgeous phone ASAP, not delaying. If HTC continue delaying, I'm afraid to say that this year is an EPIC FAIL for HTC.

It's not HTC that's delaying, apparently a component manufacturer is holding back on parts.

Either way, no One for the U.S. market is a FAIL for HTC.

If they release this soon then it might end like Xperia Ion who was released in Q1 but was available sometime in Q3.

HTC is irrelevant in India.

I find HTC and Sony Phone attractive and different as compared to Samsung. Currently the design of every new or old Samsung phone is the same and its getting monotonous. But every phone of HTC or Sony is unique in design and hardware. They are taking the hit only because of availability of there product and poor Marketing strategy. If they overcome these 2 issues then they can give Samsung a run for there money.

Right now they are saying that the HTC One will be available in North America by the end of April. I seriously doubt the majority of people who want to take advantage of this offer will be able to purchase and activate by April 30. Either they are going to extend the offer again or a lot of people won't be able to get the refund.

Release date means everything with the GS4 on the way. How could they not anticipate the need for parts? I have to wonder how long this phone has been in development for them to be so behind. I want to see the underdog rise to the top but they seem to be digging their own hole.
