HTC will give you at least $100 for your old phone if you trade it in for the One and only

The freshly-baked HTC One is arriving in stores a few weeks from now with an impressive multicarrier launch all over the world, but HTC's sales efforts don't stop at this coordinated rollout.

The company will also give you a $100 or more for your older handset if you want to trade it in for an HTC One. You have to register with HTC first, then get the One and only, sending poof of purchase along with your crummy old talkbox to the company in order to receive a Visa card in the mail. Sweet, and similar to the $300 trade-in campaign for the One X.

If I can throw any Jurassic gadget at them it's a great deal, but if they want recent phones I'll rather sell mine for $200 than give it to HTC for $100.

I have an old Incredible that'd be nice to get rid of. Sounds cool.

If you go in and read the offer, they say $100 or old phone value, which ever is greater.

Anybody with a crappy Galaxy Nexus on Sprint or Verizon should be lining up for this deal. Otherwise the Htc One definitely renders that Droid Dna useless on Verizon. I am very happy to see Htc look out for htc fans on tmobile.

Let me add something to your comments. See what you did there, Verizon & Sprint Nexus; I'll go for this offer, if one of their offerings is an unlocked device. Personally, done with carriers and their "mierda". Either you offer the device unlocked or I'll purchase one from Google. Can't wait to see all the details of the Motorola X. Sorry Apple, don't want to spend $649 on a phone, after all is just a phone.

Not sure how this phone renders the Droid DNA useless on Verizon, when 1. Verizon isn't getting this phone, unless they get it 6 months down the road as the DNA+ 2. This really isn't that much of an upgrade over the DNA in the first place. Processor is a bit faster, 16GB more storage, and a possible camera upgrade. I can tell you, all three of these upgrades wouldn't feel like an upgrade to a person that owns and uses the DNA. Do you even read anything about phones or just randomly bash on GN and Verizon? You sir troll to much on this site.

Thanks HTC but my s3 is waiting to be replaced by s4. Hope my expectations won't be crushed.

How much do you guys think an almost mint condition HTC Sensation is worth?

I also have a Kyocera Echo that I bought off Craigslist for funsies. HTC would probably send me the hundred bucks but insist that I just keep the phone lol

Will they accept my rust bucket Nokia 3210 and low end Nokia 100 for this beauty??That's pretty much going from a Bicycle to a 2013 maserati quattroporte. Nah, realistically speaking they want a very recent IPhone 5 64Gb/Note 2 64Gb or even a newly purchased Xperia Z as part of the deal.

Lol anybody that falls for this needs to learn how to use ebay. There going to be like trade your GS3 in perfect condition for $150 or sell it on ebay and make $400.
