Nokia is looking to bolster his dwindling overall sales by offering customers a chance to switch to a Windows 8 based Lumia smartphone. The Finnish company announced today, a new trade up program that will take in your old phone and send you back up to $370 on a prepaid Visa based on the phone's condition and overall trade-in value.
Most smartphones from the last couple of years are accepted into the program but unless you have a very recent and very popular phone like the iPhone 4S, the Galaxy S4, or the HTC One, don't expect to get much for your used device. Expect an even lower price for your phone if it is damaged in any way, does not power on, or shows signs of water damage.
My year and a half old Motorola Photon 4G appears to only be worth $30 based on their online estimator while, a top of the line Galaxy S4 64GB edition from Verizon will land you about $275. Apple's iPhone 4S will land you $220 with it's iPhone 5 counterpart is worth $370 in the eyes of Nokia.
