NextWorth (http://www.nextworth.com), a company that specializes in
consumer electronic upgrades and trade-ins, has announced a trade-in
service for third generation iPhones that purportedly provides enough
trade-in cash to cover an upgrade to the new 3G S iPhone.
NextWorth CEO Dave Chen says that, for the time being, NextWorth
customers can receive as much as US$255.50 for a 16GB iPhone 3G when
trading in their phone. With current 3G S prices starting at $199for
the 16GB 3G S, trade-in amounts will fully or nearly cover the cost
of an upgrade, he says.
iPhones purchased by NextWorth in any condition will be refurbished
and resold by NextWorth, keeping the old devices out of the waste
stream, thereby promoting recycling and reuse, adds Chen.
NextWorth customers go to the company web site, enter the model,
condition and any original accessories that may be included in the
trade, and a value is instantly displayed. If customers accept this
value and proceed, a free shipping label is provided to return the
iPhone to NextWorth and the price quote is locked for up to 21 days.
Once received, NextWorth examines the product, verifies the estimate
and sends the customer payment in the form of a certified check,
PayPal, or a Target or Amazon Gift Card.
