Depends on your state. Hopefully you don't live in CA. To find out for sure, just act like you're placing an order, say what phone you want to trade in, and go to/near the end of check out. For me, trading in my S21+ for this costs $19.99 ($499.99-$480), and tax in my state is 6%. They only charge tax on the difference, so I'm only hit with a little over $1 in tax.

Yes, but you must buy unlocked. Carrier versions have different promos and are not as good (bill credits, etc). I took my last flip3 and went to a S22U with all the creds i've gotten from trading in flips

How can you trade it back in for the extra if you have to get it activated with plan to get the discount price?

Go activate it on your plan, or you don't even need to, just take the entire box to customer service and get your $600

Totally misread this. Was thinking it was a free phone not buying and trading back in for store credit.

Damn. Was hoping to replace an old line.

$499 actually isn't a bad price for this phone - best deal I could find when they had them at launch was $800. So what if I actually wanted to use this phone - but on Visible, not Verizon? What's the deal with "with activation today"?

This is not worth the hassle if you are actually going to trade in unless you already have something else that you want to buy from bb. Even then its a bunch of steps to basically get an extra $50 credit.

I'm trading in a S21+ for $480 so I will be paying $21ish for this phone, I will trade it in for $600 afterwards. I don't mind selling my S21+ for $580 Best Buy GC.
