Will You Let Your Used iPhone go for a Verizon Model?

The Verizon iPhone 4 ultimately provides users with more options in carriers. The iPhone does however offer a bit more than just the new choice now available through Verizon vs AT&T. These devices are actually almost identical in all reality which is after all a good thing if you are already familiar with the AT&T model.

You know how it is really the performance and the experience which is what makes things either good or bad, and the Verizon network is likely going to be an improvement which is ultimately a noticeable difference. With faster data speeds you may already fall in love with this change but do not forget that coverage in troublesome locations may prove to be improved as well. However are these really reason enough to jump ship and let your old used iPhone go?

There have been some benefits and enticements such as Verizon matching AT&T pricing for 32GB as well as 16GB iPhone models. The actual data plans are varied so you can likely find the right plan for your own needs. I know a lot of us like to keep things simple and the Verizon plans should provide a good selection to match individual requirements.

The CDMA antenna may be a bit different than what you are used to with your AT&T iPhone but the handsets are quite similar compared to the Verizon iPhone with slight variations. The personal hot spot feature is pretty cool though and we found it to be relatively easy to establish. Is it worth the additional cost? Well the personal hot spot may be just the thing if you actually need to connect to various devices using Wi-Fi, USB or Bluetooth but if you do not ever see then need for this feature then at least you do not have to pay for it. However if you do then it will be an additional monthly cost.

The Verizon iPhone 4 is a great alternative but we know a lot of people who are still quite satisfied with their used iPhone 3GS models and really do not plan to upgrade for a while. The real benefit is in the progress of having alternatives when we want them if we do decide to make the switch.

Your Used iPhone and Early Termination Fees

There will likely be quite a rush of iPhone users who begin pre-ordering the new Verizon iPhone early next month (February 2011). The prospect of this are enticing to those looking to get their first iPhone, yet what about the current AT&T customers who want to make the big switch to Verizon?

This is a good example of how we all must weight the pros and cons of signing a lengthy contract with wireless providers these days. The real problem in this case is the fact that the AT&T iPhone customers will have to deal with an early termination fee (quite a substantial one at that), if they want to make the move to the Verizon package.

There were substantial increases to the early termination fees last summer so this is not an expense that can just be ignored for many consumers today. In addition to the termination fee, you will have to actually purchase a new phone as well. So what can you do with your used cell phone?

If you have a used iPhone in great condition and you do plan to switch to Verizon then your best bet for recouping as much of your expenses would be to sell the used iPhone. We recommend only well established and trusted sources in order to help reduce any time consuming or bad experiences. A used iPhone can command a respectable price right now so take a look at the current listings of used iPhones to get a better idea of what phones in similar condition to yours are selling for. It is never easy to have to bring yourself to paying an early termination fee. Many people consider this to be one of the primary reasons to use an unlocked iPhone but this should be fully addressed (whenever possible) before you sign any contracts.
