Those United States users who already have a tablet PC they no longer need can now head over to Verizon Wireless to enter the carrier's Trade-In Program to get rid of it.
Initially launched in September last year for smartphones
and feature phones, the Verizon Wireless Trade-In Program is now accepting tablet PCs as well, so that users can enjoy more options when it comes to getting value from their no-longer-used devices
“Whether you’re a mobile user looking to move to the nation’s most reliable network or a customer looking to trade up to a new tablet, our Trade-In Program provides options that people can feel good about,” said Greg Haller, vice president of consumer solutions for Verizon Wireless.
“Adding tablets to our lineup of eligible trade-in devices along with wireless phones, gives users another option to recycle old devices and get value.”
The Trade-In Program at the mobile phone carrier offers wireless users the possibility to learn whether their old device still has some value, and to receive a Verizon Wireless gift card for trading it in.
According to the wireless services provider, depending on the condition of the tablet PCs
, users could receive for them gift cards that worth up to $300, via the trade-in program.

“Verizon Wireless gift cards can be used online at www.verizonwireless.com, in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores or to pay a Verizon Wireless bill,” the carrier explains.
“The Verizon Wireless Trade-In Program accepts wireless phones and now tablets from most major manufacturers and wireless carriers. For additional information, visit www.trade-in.vzw.com or call the Trade-In Support Center at 1-866-870-5446.”
The trade-in program is only one of the options that Verizon offers to users interested in recycle wireless devices. Another such program would be HopeLine from Verizon
, which collects devices and accessories in an attempt to offer help to victims of domestic violence. More info on this program can be found here
