Verizon's brand-new Nokia 3 V is already available free of charge with a new line
Verizon may not sell any high-end or even upper mid-range Nokia smartphones, but for a brand that was pretty much dead and buried just three years ago, it's certainly impressive to see its presence steadily growing on America's largest wireless network. In addition to the Nokia 7.1, which you can buy elsewhere and then bring over to Big Red, the low-end 2 V and 3 V are available directly from the carrier, the former with prepaid plans only and the latter starting just last week.
Believe it or not, the freshly released Nokia 3 V is already on sale, dropping from a reasonable $168 retail price all the way down to an unbeatable... $0. That's right, the fairly modest but large and relatively good-looking handset can be yours free of charge. Obviously, you need to meet a couple of important requirements, although we're not talking anything too complicated or out of the ordinary. Just the standard new line, installment plans, and bill credit conditions.
In other words, you'll have to get the Nokia 3 V on a device payment plan with a new line of postpaid Verizon service and agree to 24 monthly installments of $7 each, which will be returned in full to your account as promo credit. Naturally, there are no trade-ins required or any other strings attached. Basically, this is the same exact deal as the one offered by Big Red for iPhone 7 buyers willing to add a new line.
Of course, the Nokia 3 V looks far more modern, with a whole lot of screen real estate in tow (6.26 inches, to be exact), a discreet waterdrop-style notch, a fairly large chin, a massive 4,000mAh battery promising up to 2 days of endurance, and a... not-so-bad Snapdragon 429 processor coupled with a humdrum 2 gigs of memory and 16 gigs of internal storage space. You obviously can't have it all at $168, let alone $0.
