Apple's Smartphone Trade-In Program Launches in United States, Canada and Europe

Apple has expanded its Reuse and Recycling Program in the United States, Canada and several European countries to cover eligible Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone smartphones. The new trade-in program is available online and in-store and provides customers with the option to mail in eligible non-Apple smartphones, including certain Samsung, HTC, LG, Nokia, Sony and BlackBerry models, for credit in the form of an Apple Store gift card or bank transfer.

Apple Smartphone Trade in Program
The smartphone trade-in program has gone live in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany and Canada in partnership with third-party device buyback and trade-in company Brightstar. Apple is also accepting various PC models by certain manufacturers as part of its expanded Reuse and Recycling Program, handled by third-party vendor Dataserv.

Apple's Reuse and Recycling Program launched in August 2013 and was previously limited to trading in qualifying iPhones, iPads and Macs for immediate credit towards the purchase of a new Apple device. Apple also offers a traditional recycling program for disposing of devices such as iPhones, iPads, Macs and other smartphones and computers that are no longer eligible for trade in.

iPhone 4S 64gb, sold mine a few months ago for £150. They're offering £65. iPad 3 64gb, sold mine for £220 last month. They're offering £90.

And it's only a gift card too. Usually when you trade in items and have the option of store credit or money, the store credit one is a bit more generous.

No thanks to any of this!

There is no such thing as US English. ;)


Exactly. It's "Americanese" - it bears only a passing resemblance to REAL English, as we Brits know it.

United Kingdom, Canada and Australia (and probably elsewhere) use English (UK) and not English (US).
