Globe offers iPhone 4S Trade-in for iPhone 4, 3GS & 3G

In a bold move to retain old subscribers, Globe Telecom has announced a trade-in offer for all iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 owners who got their handset from Globe before (whether prepaid or postpaid).

Details of the trade-in promo will be available in specified Globe Stores (they’ll have one in Bonifacio High Street) starting tomorrow, December 16, 2011.

The trade-in price hasn’t been revealed yet but could be done on a case-to-case basis, depending on the condition of the old iPhone.

Globe has set up a trade-in scheme for existing iPhone users who want to upgrade their Apple devices for the ultimate experience. Users of Globe-issued iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 in good working condition can trade-in their units at a specified trade-in value, which may be applied and treated as a discount for qualified purchases or availments of iPhone 4S at designated Globe stores and launch venues on December 16, 2011. The scheme applies for all existing prepaid and postpaid subscribers of Globe.

Aside from the trade-in, Globe subscribers can also get a voucher which will entitle them to a 20% discount when they purchase an original iPhone 4 case. The price slash is available until December 31.

Globe prides itself with high-profile subscribers and even presented no other than the President of the Republic of the Philippines the first Globe iPhone 4S in the country.

Taking part in this phenomenon is Philippine President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III himself, who was the first subscriber to receive his iPhone 4S from Globe as part of his loyalty reward. PNoy, a long-time Globe subscriber since his days as Representative of the 2nd District of Tarlac, renewed his Globe subscription for another two years.

Another exclusive freebie for Globe subscribers availing of the iPhone 4S are free mobile applications for the ultimate smartphone experience. By getting their iPhone 4S from Globe, subscribers can enjoy games, social networking, lifestyle, entertainment and sports apps all for free by simply texting REWARDS APP to 4438. An exclusive app for Globe subscribers using the iPhone 4S who want to check their balance is also available for free. Through this app, users can subscribe to a wide array of text, call and mobile browsing promos with a simple touch on the screen. Just text IPHONE to 2222 for free to download the app.

If you’re still on a contract with Globe but wanted to go for the iPhone 4S, this offer is an interesting opportunity.

Updated: Here’s the discount prices for trading in your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G.

Php15,000 for a 32GB iPhone 4
Php10,000 for a 16GB iPhone 4
Php5,000 for an iPhone 3GS
Php3,000 for an iPhone 3G

Discount will be given towards the prepaid kit of a new iPhone 4S. Trade-in promo is until 10PM tonight only.

If you are on a postpaid plan, there’s an option to upgrade to a higher plan to get the iPhone 4S.
