The Robert M. Herron Museum of Modern Cellphones reviles the thought of you trading in your historic handsets for measly $100 credits.

I skimmed through the 'fine print' and they will have a list of phones that are eligible for trade in. I'm guessing they will leave out the really old/crappy phones but we'll have to wait and see how many they actually include.

Also, I think it stated that you had to buy and activate the HTC One by March 31st in order to be eligible for the $100...which sucks for me because I'm eligible to upgrade on April 1st :wall:

I bet you could get Sprint to upgrade you one day early.

Tele Sales has the power to give out upgrades early.

The other fine print is that the old phone is supposed to be active at the time of purchasing the HTC One. I doubt they could check that, but I wouldn't have a problem, say, activating my HTC Mogul for a day, assuming it were on the list (which I'm sure is doubtful).

Seems odd that you have to worry about the condition of your phone and you can't send in anything damaged?? I guess if you wanted more than $100 it would make sense, but I was gonna send in a cracked screen Galaxy S ... I can't find any link to the "tool" you are supposed to use to determine value.

The tool is here: http://www.htctradeup.com/

 

They offer $60 for my HTC EVO 4G LTE, $0.00 for my original EVO 4G, and $290 for iPhone 5 16GB.

 

so their own flagship phone fro less than a year ago is worth only $60 dollars to them..geesh

I KNOW! Given the antenna issue that plague the EVO LTE they should be a little more generous with an upgrade.

If you got $100 for the OG EVO then that'd be a good deal! only offering 175 for the DNA for crying out loud!

 

$20 for my 3D...$35 for my old Galaxy S 4G slider (but $0 since it's got a cracked screen) so I can count on $100 for either.

EVO LTE is going for $112 on Gazelle and up to $180 on eBay.

well, I would like to see how the One performs on the field first..... Wouldn't want to get stuck with a new HTC One if it has issues (like LTE connectivity for example)..... :popcorn:

So take the $100 gift card from HTC and sell the EVO LTE to Gazelle. Win-Win :D

so i'm confused will htc take my old evo 4G as a trade in for $100? even if the tool says it's worth $0. I would easily sell my 4G LTE for $112 to gazelle and buy the ONE for basically free....if the antenna was better than my 4G LTE. I have LTE in my area and sometimes good connection, gf has great LTE with her iphone 5 on sprint. Also I bought my 4G LTE on amazon last june and somehow it never extended my contract so I am due for an upgrade, gf already did it with her 4G LTE to iphone 5. I sure hope the antenna is better and the battery is comparable. Also just dreaming here but it would be nice if the HTC logo was really a capacitive button that someone could enable later.

What's weird is that, in numerous hands-on videos people have tapped it and it would go back home. Maybe they made the home button's response area go into part of the HTC logo so people can get used to it. Or maybe it's just the way that the camera is positioned.

yes...clearly states $100 or value of phone whichever is HIGHER. So if you trade in something the tool says is worth $0 - you still get $100 (unless I'm missing something), but if you trade in something the tool says is worth more than $100, you get the actual value up to $300 IIRC.

Per the Terms & Conditions section 7.2 Program Requirements,

In order to participate in the HTC OneTM Upgrade Program you must have an eligible used device as defined by the on-line Tool. You can identify if the used device is eligible by utilizing the drop down menus to pick the make, model, and carrier for the used device. If you cannot find the make or model and believe this is in error, you can contact the program administrator at tradein@twsmail.com.

It's not 100% clear to me whether they're saying that if the device appears in the drop-downs, that that means it's eligible.

i swear i am not dumb, this is just a touch confusing. My perfect scenario would be buying the phone from amazon, selling my EVO 4G LTE to gazelle and then sending in my proof of purchase of the ONE along with my OG EVO 4G to receive $100. If that is what HTC is doing then great. As long as the LTE antenna is better on the ONE than the EVO 4G LTE.

I received my pre-registration code. It looks like quite a number of older smartphones are eligible for the deal--my Evo 3D, Samsung Moment (which I believe to be the same as the Instinct Q), and my HTC Mogul (from 2007!) all seem to get the same $100 offer.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      hey guys i am due for a upgrade today....i am curious on the opinions of others of what phone is a great phone... any opinions are welcome !

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?
