Thread DetailsLast Edited by annie930ny October 30, 2015 at 06:27 AM
Verizon has a $300 trade-in promotion for ANY WORKING SMARTPHONE (AWS) when adding a line with device phone payment (DPP).
Verizon also has a promotional code that works in-store & on it's website for $100 off the retail cost G4 - LGG4SAVE
LG has a $200 Visa card rebate on the purchase of a any Verizon G4 model from Oct. 12th - 29th.
With this means is:
$552 LG G4
-$100 Promo Code LGG4SAVE
-$300 Trade-in applied to the overall cost of the phone
-$200 Visa gift card (4-6 weeks)
Around $20 money maker.
I've personally done this.
Did a search and didn't see a thread devoted to this amazing deal
For anyone concerned about getting this phone to work with T-Mobile, AT&T, and other carriers as it should with the hardware it comes with, I encourage everyone to take a minute and file the already drafted FCC complaint online.
Quote :Dear FCC:
I recently purchased a Verizon LG G4 from Verizon that was advertised as a "World Device - Works in over 200 countries... Network LTE Bands 4/13/2". See more specs here: http://www.verizonwire
Verizon has in fact forced their firmware to disable T-Mobile's LTE Band 2 (1900MHz) & Band 4 (1700MHz & 2100MHz).
In short, despite the LTE Radio Frequency hardware capabilities of the LG G4 smartphone being present, the Verizon software prevents the phone from establishing 4G LTE connections thus severely crippling consumer Internet Access & various MMS capabilities. I own this phone but cannot use it on a competing carriers network for Internet Access or MMS messaging.
This is clearly an attempt by Verizon to carrier lock this device thus forcing consumers to use their service or purchase another T-Mobile branded LG G4 smartphone.
Please make Verizon stop this monopolistic and illegal practice.
Please see this forum post for additional details in regards:

Trade In Phone
Steps for getting it in the store -
a. Go online, and add LG G4 into the cart under the device payment plan (DPP)
b. Apply LGG4SAVE code, to get $100 off. If that doesnt work try LGG4SAVE100. The code apparently works in their system.
c. A pop-up will say, trade-in your eligible phone. Enter the IMEI etc. and you'll get $300 added to the cart
d. The $300 will NOT be applied to your final total (which is probably ~$452 at this point without taxes)
e. Choose a phone plan. For a new line the cheapest is $30+$20 (i.e. $50/month)
f. Take a print out of your cart, your trade-in phone, and head to a Verizon store that has LG G4 in stock
g. Ask to replicate this deal
i. Tell them you want to use your $300 trade-in towards the downpayment. They'll have to manually add this step because if you don't do this your total will be $0 and your trade-in amount will be sent to you as a verizon gift card. You DO NOT want to do that
j. Depending on your state, your final bill will include taxes on the full price of the device or post-discounted price (in CA it's on the full price)
k. Come back home with your shiny device and follow OP's link to register your claim for $200 rebate on LG's site
l. Upload a copy of your invoice, UPC (on the box), and IMEI (on the box)
m. Wait a few weeks for the rebate to show up, go ahead with cancellations if needed.
n. Congratulations on replicating the deal!
Steps for getting it online -
0. Go to a cashback site, and follow its Verizon link (disable ads blocker) and follow steps a, b, c, d and e from above
1. Go ahead with the payment. You will NOT be able to apply $300 from your trade-in towards the device cost during the checkout. (Apply it to your final bill after cancelling your service.)
*As of 11/24/2015 "If you received promo value when trading in a device and/or instant device savings, you will be charged for that value if you do not maintain active service for three billing cycles, unless you return the device within 14 days."
3. Once G4 is received, follow step L from above
4. Wait a few weeks for cashback, trade-in credit, and rebate to show up, go ahead with cancellations if needed.
5. Congratulations on (almost) replicating the deal!
People have reported trading-in multiple devices, and multiple rebates from the same household may be accepted. Search the thread for the specific posts. Put a link to the helpful ones here.
Verizon no longer does 2-year contracts, so new lines need not worry about breaking the contract earlier - there is NO contract. Just choose the DPP and buyout early.
If you can't apply LGG4SAVE, clear your cookies. There is a FIOS $200 discount in certain markets in lieu of the $100 coupon- you cannot stack both.
Returning device will invalidate both your $300 trade in credit and $200 rebate. You will also not get your original trade in phone back.http://more.vzw.com/fiosoffer/
To get both LTE and voice working for ATT/Tmobile variants follow these steps - Note: Root required. Would not recommend to novice users.

Free Mophie 3x 5000 mAh Powerstation with in-store purchase - YMMV
I went to replicate this deal a 2nd time at a Verizon Store and the salesman said it came with a free power station, a $100 value.
It was added to the bill, but the price of the phone was reduced by $100 leaving the typical phone balance of $152. Maybe a local manager's special but it's worth asking about.

There's only one sure way to hit Verizon where it hurts them the most.
Submit your dispute to: NoticeofDispute@Verizonwireless.com on this form or even without the form.
Select Arbitration. Wait 30 days. If you don't get a response, file arbitration at www.adr.org and ask for in-person arbitration.
Verizon is required to pay the cost of arbitration including the filing fee, if you ask for it in writing. Their cost is $3700 per case.
Be sure to ask for some type of "equitable relief" such as you want them to perform the remainder of the contract,
otherwise they'll transfer the case to small claims to avoid paying the arbitration fees.
They'll try to offer you $500 to go away - if that's close to the amount of lost gift cards, accept it; if not, reject and proceed to a hearing. -my2
Verizon Order via Xfinity to apply multiple GCs
Here is my write up on paying off your DPP through Xfinity.... Please feel free to point out if I missed something Big Grin
Go to xfinity.com/verizonwireless
Select 'Buy Now' and ignore the promo listed as it has expired (but don't worry, more to come about this).
From this point on, make sure every time you make a selection and a new page loads that you see the 'Xfinity/Verizon Wireless' logo is at the top of the page (more on this later). Clicking that 'Buy Now' button should bring you to a log-in page. Enter your Verizon account info and sign in.
Now, select 'Device with Service'. This should bring you to a page showing all of your lines, devices attached and upgrade eligibility.
This is where it might get a little tricky depending on number of DPP's you have and if you have been moving SIM cards around between devices but in any case choose the line you believe the DPP you want to pay off by checking the Upgrade/Upgrade available box below the device and then select the red 'Continue' button.
You should now be on the page offering you the opportunity to 'Own your device and upgrade'. It will show the remaining amount owed for the DPP on that line. If the amount matches what you were expecting to pay then check off the box to select the payoff option and then select the red ' Continue' button.
You will now be sent to a page to select your new device. We have been selecting the 'Droid Mini' as it is the cheapest smartphone available this way ($108 or $4.50/mo for 24 months. You should do the same and then once again 'Continue'
Unless you want a different color than white (red and black are available) simply 'Add to Cart'
Now, just keep 'Continuing' through the various options presented to you such as protection plans. accessories, etc. you will eventually get to the 'Review you Order page' which will show lots of things but the important part is showing 'Device Buyout Pmt' which should be the amount of the DPP you are getting rid of and then the 'Total Due Today' which should be the DPP payout plus the tax due on the new Droid Mini. *** You can attempt to add the 'UPGRADE' promo code on this page. It will accept it but for many it does not reduce the amount for the phone*** If that is correct select the red 'Continue' button.
You now will be agreeing to your new DPP contract, it will show the terms for the mini at $108 spread over 24 months which works out to $4.50/mo. unless the UPGRADE code worked for you then terms will be $8 spread over 24 months which equals $0.33/mo. Check off the ' I have read and agree' box accepting their terms and then the red 'Continue' button.
You are finally at the payment page, look for 'Select payment type' and change to 'Gift Card'. If the amount you are paying off is more than $300 you have to change the payment amount field to $300 (amount available on your gift card) then add the card number and PIN info, check the box agreeing to their terms and then click the red 'Submit' button. You should get a popup saying 'partial payment accepted'.
Now, you should be seeing the same payment page again but with a $300 lesser amount due. Follow the same steps as above, if the amount due is less than $300 then simply enter your second gift cards info. Before you select 'Submit' ***Important*** please make sure you still have the same Xfinity/Verizon Wireless' logo at top of screen. Once you select 'Submit' you are finalizing your order. Reason for watching the logo is that if present you have done the transaction thru Xfinity and qualify for their rebate program. Current terms say you will receive a $50 visa card for an upgrade (which you are doing) though some have received more, even up to $200 back which more than covers the price of the droid mini. You can check status of the rebate process via this link http://www.card-status.com/vzw-xfinity/status. Be patient with checking this as it is not even close to being updated regularly, it is showing 'no order found' for me on orders placed 4 days ago and on another they have shipped the card even though I haven't had the phone long enough for it to get to that stage (they wait 14 days before progressing as that is the window for returning the device).
Check your order conformation email, if it lists the 'Location Code' as E184001 then you went through the proper procedure to qualify for the Xfinity gift card. Anything else means the proper referral code was not sent when you placed your order, Xfinity gets nothing and you get nothing Frown
Once you get new phone you need to activate it to complete the rebate process. Seems like a lot of work but now you can pay off the new DPP directly thru the Verizon website without buying a new phone though you will be probably be limited to paying them off one per day per gift card (just got to this point so not positive).
Hope this helps and good luck! -MachVii
