This Thursday, Radioshack, Best BuyBest Buy and Walmart will begin to sell the new iPhone 4. If you're planning on purchasing one and already have an iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS, you can trade it in at these retailers which can cut the cost or even get it free.

"Under RadioShack's promotion, which runs through Saturday, folks can trade in their old iPhone 3G for $100 or an iPhone 3GS for $200 -- regardless of whether it's a 16- or 32-gigabyte model. That can go a long way toward slicing the cost of a new iPhone 4, which is set to retail for $199 for a 16-GB model and $299 for a 32-GB.

RadioShack has only three criteria for a trade in: The iPhone turns on, the screen isn't cracked and the phone has no water damage. The company's "Trade & Save" program allows customers to have their old iPhones and other electronic devices appraised, traded in and receive an instant store credit on a RadioShack gift card"

******

"Wal-Mart Stores appear to offer the next best deal, with its electronics trade-in program run in partnership with online consumer electronics recycling giant Gazelle. The trade-in program basically queries iPhone owners about whether their used device makes calls successfully, is free of water damage, is in good condition and has its AC adapter and cables. A 16-GB iPhone 3GS could potentially fetch a trade-in value of $158, while a 32-GB version could land $188."

******

"Even though Best BuyBest Buy takes trade-ins, its devices go through a more rigorous evaluation, and payouts can be lower than those that Radio Shack and Wal-Mart are offering. For example, an iPhone 3GS with 16 GB could fetch $119 and a 32-GB model potentially $159, according to Best BuyBest Buy's "Trade-In Center" estimator".

This is my plan. I'm going with Radioshack for the larger credit. I'll give a few weeks to let the hype wear down and make sure that the 4G holds no surprises for the jailbreak community.

I believe it's this saturday (6/26). I didn't see where it gave specific dates though, your best bet would be to call your local RadioShack to check.

Re: Trade In Your Old iPhone Towards The New iPhone 4

Well, that stinks. I wonder if they'll even have any to offer me. Thanks for the warning. I missed that in the articles I read about the offer.

Re: Trade In Your Old iPhone Towards The New iPhone 4

So no Radio Shack here has an iPhone 4 to sell me. I had checked on Radio Shack's website to find out more about the trade in program. On the website it says that you mail in your device, they check it then ail you the gift card. When I called the Shack about iPhones I asked about the trade in program. The guy I talked to said it's an ongoing deal with no expiration date for now. He said the exchange can be made in store. So I hope that he is right. I guess I'll wait till they get some in and see if I can trade mine in. If not 3Gs are still doing pretty good on Ebay.

Re: Trade In Your Old iPhone Towards The New iPhone 4
Apparently there's already a problem, depending on how you hold the phone you may just lose the call, if you hold it from the bottom it reduces signal quality.

"Apple quickly issued a statement defending its product and informed users to simply watch how they handle their phone.

"Gripping any phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone," Apple said".

I think if I was going to put out all the money for this I would expect much better performance, iPhones always see to have "issues".
