Verizon will give you a free flagship phone with a trade and subscription to its unlimited plan
How does a free flagship phone sound? Like music to your ears, right? But free flagship handsets are not handed out so easily. However, Verizon is using the launch of its new unlimited plan, Verizon Unlimited, as the backdrop for its free phone offer. Here is how it works. The phones being offered for free include the models that phone fanatics have wet dreams about. We're talking about the Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge or the LG V20.
Verizon is being particular about what phones can be traded in for a new flagship. No surprise there. You wouldn't expect Big Red to take back all of those BlackBerry Storm units it sold in 2008 for a brand spanking new device. The handsets eligible to be traded in include the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus, Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, LG G5, LG V20 and HTC 10. The phones being swapped must be in working condition.
After making the trade, the Verizon customer will receive up to $792 in bill credits over 24 months to reimburse him/her for the purchase of the flagship phone. The bill credits start after 2 to 3 bill cycles. And of course, the customer will have to sign up for Verizon Unlimited. Monthly rates start at $80 for one line, $120 for two, $160 for three and $180 for four. Add $20 for each additional line up to a total of ten. Don't forget that video streams at HD (720p) resolution, and subscribers will have to agree to sign up for auto pay.
And before we bid adieu, we should tell you that Verizon is also allowing the owners of other functional handset models in superb condition, to trade them in. With the trade, the Verizon customer will pay just $5 a month for any of the aforementioned flagship phones using Verizon's device payment plans. The models that Verizon will accept in this deal are the Apple iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G4, LG V10 and the HTC One M9.
