AT&T goes for Verizon’s carotid artery with huge trade-in discount for the best Android phones

Written by admin
In response to Big Red’s revival (and expansion) of its hugely popular broken phone trade-in promotion Just a few weeks ago, the third-largest wireless service provider in the US seems to be offering its own trade-in deals for some of the best android handsets out there.
if noticed by Droid-LifeAT&T is now poised to cut a whopping $800 off the list prices of Samsung’s Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra, Z Flip 3, and Z Fold 3, as well as Google’s Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, with incredible ease. Sure, there are plenty of obligations too, but if you’re patient and have an old phone laying around, it’s a snap to save the full $800 on your next flagship.

What do you need to trade in to get $800 off?

While the full list of eligible devices is just too long to get through without going crazy, here’s a few examples to help you understand a little bit what you’re dealing with:

  • Samsung Galaxy S, SII, SIII and above
  • Galaxy Note and older
  • Galaxy A50, A42 5G and A70
  • Apple iPhone 7 and later
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation)
  • Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3a and above
  • LG V50 ThinQ, Velvet 5G, Wing 5G and Stylo 6
  • OnePlus 6T and above
  • OnePlus Nord, Nord N100, N10 5G and N200 5G
  • Moto Z4
  • Moto G Stylus and G Stylus 5G
  • Motorola One 5G and One 5G Ace
  • ZTE Red Magic 3 and Red Magic 5S
See anything there that may seem out of place in 2022? Yes, we usually talk about the original Galaxy S and Note from 2010 and 2011, respectively, but if you got rid of that antique years ago, don’t worry because AT&T will of course also give you $800 for, say, a Galaxy S6 or Note 5. Or a Pixel 4, or a Pixel 4a, or an iPhone 8, or a OnePlus 7 Pro, and so on and so forth.

By contrast, iPhone 13 Pro Max buyers can currently qualify for a modest $350 discount with a Galaxy S8 trade-in. And the best part about these great deals is that your used Galaxy S4 (or Note 3, or S5 Active, or iPhone 7) doesn’t even have to be turned on or come with a working screen to be valued at $800 by AT&T. That’s right, broken phones with shattered screens are accepted… as long as they’re part of the extended group mentioned above.

What are the conditions?

As you may have already discovered, monthly installment agreements are mandatory, and your savings are deposited into your account in the form of bill credits over the three-year term of that, well, contract.

Let’s not mince words, this is pretty much a good old-fashioned contract to sign here, but if it makes you feel better, at least you don’t have to open a new line of wireless service… if you don’t you don’t want to.

Both new and existing customers can join the $800 discount lot, where the activation or maintenance of postpaid unlimited wireless service with a minimum of $75 per month (for new subscribers “before discounts”) is essentially the last major requirement that you should consider before making your purchase decision.

Keep in mind that the “up to $800” discount is pretty much the Galaxy S22 and Google Pixel 6 to own for free while you stay on the hook for monthly payments totaling $400 and $1,000 up to the S22 Ultra and Z Fold 3 concerns respectively.
