The Apple iPhone 6 and 6+ went on sale last week. According to numerous sources, including Apple, the big mobile carries such as AT&T and Verizon, as well as various news sources, the sales of these two devices set new records for pre-orders. All models now have a wait of a week or more for the iPhone 6 and possibly a month or more for the iPhone 6 Plus.
Starting this week, AT&T announced a new cell phone trade-in program. Customers can visit an AT&T store up until December 7, 2013 and receive a $100 minimum on qualified smart phones with a new two-year agreement.
Customers just need to visit any AT&T store with a smartphone that is no more than three years old and in good, working condition. Customers who visit a company-owned store will receive a promotion card worth a minimum $100 minimum instantly when they make an eligible purchase of a smartphone, cellular tablet, new accessory, or an payment toward an existing wireless bill.
Yesterday, May 21, 2012, Jeff Bradley, AT&T Senior Vice President of Devices, shared a new cell phone trade-in program on the AT&T Consumer Blog. The program recycles your old cell phone and provides instant payment to you for qualified cell phones.
AT&T indicated that the devices have a value in being recycled for reusable materials. As part of the environmental impact, AT&T stated that in the last two years, they have collected more than six and a half million cell phones for reuse and recycling.
