iPhone 7 Free With Trade-In, $10/mo Without Trade-In – Verizon Wireless

Free iPhone 7 Verizon Wireless with Trade In or $10/Month

Verizon Wireless has brought back their free iPhone 7 with trade-in just in time for Christmas, but perhaps even better is an iPhone 7 for only $10/month – NO TRADE IN required. Surprisingly, you can get even get an iPhone 7 PLUS for free with trade in. The PLUS makes the trade in much more valuable…which was not included last time around.

A few months ago, Verizon had a very popular free iPhone 7 with trade in of any iPhone 6 (6, 6+, 6S, 6S+).

UPDATE 12/24/16: The $10/month offer for iPhone 7 has expired yesterday, but today it is still available for Galaxy S7. The FREE iPhone 7 with trade in is still available.

I don't think it's worth trading in an iPhone 6S or 6S+ (regular 6 does not qualify), so this offer is very attractive as you are buying an iPhone 7 for just $240 after you pay your $10/month and get all your credits over 24 months. Yes, you'll need to stay with Verizon Wireless for 24 months to get the full credit. You are buying your iPhone 7 for $240 ($10 x 24 months) instead of the usual full price of $650. Want more memory, you can just pay a little more:

  • iPhone 7 32GB for $10/mo
  • iPhone 7 128GB for $15/mo
  • iPhone 7 256GB for $20/mo
Fine Print
Up to $649.99 device payment purchase req'd. Less up to $649.99 trade-in promo credit (for free iPhone 7 32GB) or up to $409.99 bill credit (for $10/mo) applied to account over 24 mos; credit begins w/in 2-3 cycles & promo/bill credit ends when balance paid or line is terminated/transferred; 0% APR. Eligible trade-in phone must be in good, working & cosmetic condition. Free phone offer not combinable with other trade-in offers.

iPhone 7 Free – Trade In Offer

The trade in for the iPhone 7 PLUS seems to be the real deal here. If you trade in a phone, you can get the iPhone 7 (or 7 Plus) for free, BUT, the trade in for an iPhone 7 does not seem as good. Why? Because you'll need to trade in an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus and then you avoid paid the $10/month, or a $240 savings after 24 months. So… you are selling your iPhone 6S or 6S+ for $240. You could sell it for much more on eBay or Swappa.

In short…if you trade in an eligible phone, you can get a base model iPhone 7 for free, or pay a little more for the more memory:

  • iPhone 7 32GB for free
  • iPhone 7 128GB for $4.17/mo
  • iPhone 7 256GB for $8.33/mo

    • Depends on what your old line fee was. It used to be $40/line. The new plans are $20 per line. Before I switched to the new plan, I was paying $15 per line. So, while I was $5 worse off per line, my Mifi dropped $10/month, and something else dropped while giving me more data for less $. In the end I got more benefits for ~ the same price.

  1. So I paid outright for my smart phone and use the monthly prepay plan. My total cost per month is $45 for 3 gb, unlimited talk/text, etc. I did have to lay out the $600 or so for my device but I have no contract.
    With this 24 month contract with access fee’s, etc. what is the typical total bill? People I’ve talked to are paying like $80 a month for the phone fees, etc.

    • Are you with Verizon? They don’t have a 3gb plan anymore. I think people can really see value on Verizon w/family plans vs solo plans. Once you get up to the 8gb plan ($70/month) you get 2gb extra per line. With a corporate discount, I’m paying ~160 for 4 lines, 20gb, mifi, and an iPad (not including cost of equipment to compare apples to apples vs your cost). And this includes rollover data which is new.

  2. I am paying the 20 to 30 dollars for basically the renting to own for the Galaxy s6 edge i don’t have it paid off yet but will I be able to bring in the phone that I have without paying the rest of it off and changing it and getting the new $10 a month plan and upgrading to the new Galaxy 7

  3. Screw Verizon right now, they pulled the offer for the iPhone 7’s. I wasted my entire day trying to get all of my family together to go get our phones but when I got to Verizon, they said “oh that was cancelled yesterday morning” so I asked why and he had “not a clue”. This is litterally the worst thing they have done. This offer was supposed to go through the 24th but for some reason they decided to just cancel it. I would like Verizon just to say oh we are sorry but they haven’t so I have just wasted a day trying to get a phone that was $15/month, but now is back to $40 so ughhh..

    • Are you trying to do a trade for free iPhone or the $10/month deal? I am still seeing the trade in offer online. I would always suggest checking online before making a major effort like getting all the family’s phones together.

  4. I am upset with Verizon as I went there on sat morning to get the 7iphone for $10.00 a month but when I got there they said they no longer had special which was supposed to go thru sat they didn’t offer any other options besides higher rates I went to another Verizon dealer and they said the Samsung s7was on sale for$10. But other dealer never mentioned that both were corporate stores but by that I was pretty disappointed and upset with Verizon how can they advertise specials and change there ending dates without any notice not a good business practice

  5. Just spent an hour on the phone with Verizon Wireless. I purchased an iPhone 7 on Dec. 18, 2016 using their $10/month promotion. I was told I would be billed $27.08/month for the first 2 months then on month 3 bill I would be credited $17.08 for the first 3 months. For the remaining 21 months I would be billed $27.08/mo with a $17.08/mo credit. I just received bill for month 3 and there was no credit. Verizon rep now tells me that the offer was predicated on a trade in. Has anyone else been fleeced like this? Does anyone have a copy of the original promotion? I know I am not wrong. Several people I know all signed up for the same deal and none are now getting the credit? Please Help !!!

    • Take a look at the graphic I posted at the top of this deal. It says “no trade-in required”. I would suggest either try another rep or go back to the store you bought it from. I got my credits that I expected but I did a trade in deal so that’s a different situation.

    • Literally just got off the phone with a rep. I traded in my old 6s (I owed 12 payments still) and got the new 7. A few days later this promo came out and they had the 14 day worry free guarantee. I called the customer service line and she said go back into the store and explain to them and then within 2 cycles there will be a credit. They are trying to tell me now that because I owed on my phone I don’t qualify. That was not mentioned ANYWHERE nor on my 2 calls to customer service and 2 visits to the store did anyone say it. She said they can’t override the system and she was sorry. Back to sprint I go.

    • No I am not getting my credit either. I traded in my 6s for the $15 per month iPhone 7. Received my 3rd bill today and still no credit. Called Verizon and they are telling because my phone was not paid off I was only eligible for the upgrade and to trade my phone in but not the promotion. I cannot find the original promotion either. Very disappointed with Verizon! What a SCAM!!

      • Update pertaining this issue: My 3rd month’s bill closed recently and I did not receive the promised 3x $17.08 credit. Called up Verizon Wireless to speak with the billing department and was transferred to the trade-in department after explaining the issue. Anyway, the issue appears to now be resolved: the rep had to create a case number to get the promotional credit applied going forward and he assured me that I would see 4x $17.08 credit on my next bill (since another month would have rolled by). If you are also experiencing the same issue, please call in and feel free to keep everyone else updated. Likewise, I will let everyone know if I run into further issues (do not see credit on my April bill) – thanks.

    • I purchased my Iphone 7 plus under the same plan on Dec. 16,2016. 7 plus 128 is $36 per month,no tradein. I was supposed to start getting a $16.24 credit after 2-3 billing cycles it is now month 3 and I have not received any credit. I chatted on line a month ago and was assured it would be credited soon. What is the problem? Do they think we are going to forget. I cannot find my email with the actual offer.

      • Just make sure you save those chats. I would expect it all to roll in on the next month or they need to make some adjustments. At least they confirmed it via chat.
