Verizon Wireless kicks off trade-in program for southern US residents, offers up to $300 credit
new phone and happen to live in the southern United States, we thought you might like to know that Verizon is literally paying prospective customers to jump ship. All you have to do is bring in a mobile phone, regardless of carrier, where you'll qualify for up to $300 toward a new handset from Big Red. If you're curious, we're told that non-smartphones will automatically receive a $50 credit, while more advanced devices will need to be evaluated by an in-store rep. The program is expected to last through the end of the year, and extends to residents of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Didn't make the list? Well, uprooting your family is always an option -- although, we'd probably advise against that.
