    Hmmmm...I'm currently using my Evo LTE. I still have my old Hero laying around...perhaps I'll send them the Hero ;)

    It matters to say that this is US only, at least from what I could read on their website.

    Will they accept anything, like a Nokia 3310? :)
    If so, not a bad deal, for $100...

      (From terms and conditions)

      No idea where this tool is, but it will probably be limited to smartphones.

    Non-removable battery, no buy.

      I wasn't fond of the non-removable in my Evo LTE....but I've found that its really not so bad.

      I honestly didn't realize anyone did that other than Apple.

      Personally, I would never even entertain the idea of getting a phone without access to the battery - regardless of how good it was. I carry a couple of extra fully-charged batteries with me when I know I'll be away from a charger for any extended period of time. It may seem crazy, but even if I'm at home and suddenly realize my battery's about to die, it's much easier for me to swap it out with one sitting in a charger than it is to plug it in and wait for it to charge before I can do anything or go anywhere.

      I don't care how much more it costs for the batteries. I've been stuck too many times without any juice in my phone and no access to a charger.

        Yup, I can get cheap $10 batteries from China. I game a lot on my phone, I can give up good looks for a removable back.

        Good luck finding a top of the line phone in the next year.

    Is that $100 and then you pay retail for the phone...or do you still get the carrier contract price?

      It's a pre-paid visa card. I haven't seen any reason that you even have to use it towards another phone.

    And apparently not available through Verizon. :(

    I believe its only for US since the India site just refreshes when one says Sign Up :-)

    • whip

      damn, wish it was for India too..100$ for my 1.5 yr Chacha s a great deal

  • LookedPath

    I don't understand...
    You get a minimum of 100$ of discount of the new phone based on your actual smartphone or you get an initial discount and then they refund all the phone?
    Sorry for the stupid question...

  • Floss

    Is there any way to check what they think the "value" of your phone is before hand? If they would be willing to take, say, $300 off the price for trading in my HTC One X I'd be all for that :D

    I read the fine print and it says in order to qualify for the offer you need to buy your HTC One on or before March 31st. That means the phone is launching before the end of March here in the states? Too bad because my Sprint upgrade date is on April 1st :(

    "Everything your phone isn't" is actually a pretty awful choice of words, specially if taken by people to be the One's main slogan instead of it being attached to this page only. Everything my phone isn't? My phone is great, I like it a lot, so... So I guess the One is bad?

    Goodbye, HTC Incredible.

    You gotta buy the HTC one in order to get the trade in
