Great news for anyone who purchased a new iPhone 3GS from AT&T since May 7th and is looking to get an iPhone 4. AT&T is said to be offering buyers up to $100 bill credit if they want to keep their old phone or allowing you to trade in your barely used iPhone for a full purchase price credit towards the iPhone 4.
The iPhone credits and iPhone trade in program at AT&T is a great option for individuals who have just signed a new AT&T contract since they can now have the latest and greatest iPhone without any extra costs. Consumers will have 30 days from their purchase date to take advantage of what AT&T is calling a “one-time Customer Price protection.”
Here’s what you can get from AT&T for your almost new iPhone.
- $50 bill credit for the 16GB iPhone 3GS
- $100 bill credit for the 32GB iPhone 3GS
- Return your iPhone 3GS and apply the full purchase price towards a new iPhone 4
A new 16GB iPhone 4 costs $199 and the 32GB iPhone 4 is $299 with a 2-year contract.
You only have 30-days from your original purchase date to take advantage of this offer from AT&T which includes iPhone 3GS models purchased during the week of May 7th-14th. If you qualify for the one time price protection make sure you return to the store you purchased the iPhone 3GS and ask for your credit or to exchange for a new iPhone 4.
If you are one of the individuals who needs to trade in your iPhone 3GS towards a new iPhone 4 by Monday, you will need to make sure that you have another phone on hand to use until the iPhone 4 is released on June 24th.
My advice would be to get the new iPhone 4. It offers newer technology and a better overall package for the same price. For more answers to questions about the iPhone 4, including “Should I buy One?” — check out our Easy Guide to the New iPhone.
