Why? there is a front screen, you don't HAVE to open it unless you want the "tablet" experience.

Quote from Vin369 :
You don't trade-in with Bestbuy, $400 is bestbuy offer and they put it as down payment. Trade-in is with AT&T, we go to AT&T store with a qualified mobile phone (which is at least $95 worth) and then trade-in using our ph# and coupon code. $1000 is paid via monthly bill credits over 36 months.
Have you already done the trade in? I'm curious how they know you got the Fold 3 and if they care if it's from Best Buy or AT&T. Does it just need to be on the installment plan?

If this works, this looks like the best deal if you're willing to stay with ATT for 36 months. Too bad the 512 is unavailable from Best Buy right now.


EDIT: I see that when you go through the purchase process at Best Buy, it asks if you want to trade in a phone to AT&T. That's when you get the option for the $1000 trade-in. If only the 512 was in stock!

If you go directly to Samsung.com, you can get a better deal with a trade in! Also, you can click on "education discount", which they don't verify, and get more $$ off!!

This is more of a PSA.

TL;DR: DO NOT MAIL YOUR TRADE IN DEVICES. TRADE IN AT A COR LOCATION.

Folks need to understand that these trade in promos are designed to give AT&T almost 100% leverage to renege on the promo and you having 0% leverage to walk away if things go sour on you. These trade in promotions are designed to basically steal your current device (and reselling them on the secondary market for a tidy profit) and make you pay full sticker price for the new devices and if you don't pay up, getting your credit trashed. These are steal and extortion schemes.

Remember this, you are giving your currently working device to AT&T simply based simply on their promise that they will evaluate it honestly. If you disagree with their assessment, tough luck. You are SOL. Do you trust this handshake agreement with AT&T where they cannot lose and you have everything to lose?

Your trade in can be rejected or under valued based on the whims of AT&T / HYLA MOBILE. Here are the list of reasons:

-- AT&T will claim that your trade in devices never reached them.
-- AT&T will claim that your trade in was under valued because your screen is broke, you device's charging port is broke, the device still has activation lock on it, the device's storage does not match what you entered when you initiated the trade, their systems shows that it is reported as lost or stolen or have a not fully unpaid flag on it, etc etc etc
-- AT&T will not send you labels to send them your trade in devices or will delay it where you now are in serious danger of them not getting your trade ins within the 30 days stipulated window.
-- AT&T will send you a mailer for you to send the traded in devices which is flimsy and almost designed to damage the devices during transit. Do the math. Who benefits from devices damaged during transit?

It should not matter if the device you traded in has more or less storage than you indicated as long as the base model matches. If you forgot to take off the activation lock, give the customer a change to do so remotely. If the traded in device has damage, allow the customer to send in another device or allow for a new customer paid evaluation. If folks send the trade ins to wrong address, is it so difficult to automatically flag these IMEIs and reroute them to correct destination? AT&T could give customers 14 days AFTER EVALUATION of their trade ins to walk away if they are not going to get full bill credits. The current 14 day walk away period after new device activation is laughably rigged because AT&T ensures that no evaluation is done on time within that initial 14 day period. There are many ways AT&T can ensure that good faith compliance with their program results in customers getting their bill credits. But AT&T chooses to do nothing.

AT&T says that your traded in devices are send to recycling. But, if AT&T will not honor the promo by under valuing the trade ins (which completely negates the promo that you were depending on), they should put these devices in a separate queue, notify the customer of this deficiency, give the customer some options to correct these deficiencies or allow the customers to walk away from the contract and return your traded in devices.

If you still want to do these types of trade in deals, keep all emails/receipts. Read the fine print and make sure you tick all the check boxes. Never do trade ins via mail, ONLY at a corporate AT&T store. If one does not take them, go to another or another. If no corporate store takes them, return the new phones and walk away. Let AT&T find another sucker. That receipt you get from AT&T listing the condition of your trade in devices and the trade in value to be assigned is your ONLY PROOF to fight them. And be ready to file FCC complaint and/or hitting them with a dispute notice and in person arbitration. Don't bother calling customer service or HYLA.

Don't believe for a second that this switcheroo of your trade in values is solely HYLA's doing. They are probably encouraged and abetted by AT&T to engage in this unethical practice because ultimately it is AT&T that benefits from this. This is a zero sum game. Every dollar you loose on bill credits goes into AT&T's pocket.

Edit (Add): If you get your trade in dollars correctly after mailing them in, count your lucky stars. The ATT & Reddit forums are littered with complaints about trade ins.

Quote from jnads :
Only T-Mobile does that I believe.


AT&T / Verizon require you to have the monthly phone payments for the full term to continue the bill credits.
To get all the credits, the discounted device must remain on installment agreement and you must keep eligible service for entire installment term.

If you upgrade or pay up/off the installment agreement on the discounted device early, your credits may cease.

Or you could take it to the AT&T store, have the rep check it and fill out a form with the condition

Since samsung only wants to give $150 for my razr 5G, and best buy won't even accept it, it's looking like the AT&T offer is by far the best for me. Even if I cancelled the contract after a year, I still would get more than the $150 credit samsung is offering.

Is this a joke? You're literally signing a contract for a subsidized phone in return for locking yourself into an overpriced plan for 36 months.

Would you pay $400 a month for phone service if it means you get a "free" phone every year because you can't count the cost of the plan?
