NextWorth Smartphone Trade-in Value Index


Thinking of upgrading to a new Smartphone?

The moment we buy a new Smartphone, it will start to loose it’s value. However with NextWorth’s trade-in program, Smartphone owners can reduce the overall cost of their ownership.
When  selecting the right smartphone, one needs to consider which phone will best retain it’s resell value over time. To help consumers, we have developed the ” NextWorth Trade-in Value Index”. This index shows the current NextWorth trade-in value as a percentage of the original retail value. The average retail sales price ranges between $499 and $699 for a new smartphone.  In our index we have included smartphones that were introduced between May and July 2010. 
The iPhone 4 32GB and 16GB top the NextWorth index. Both phones can currently be sold for over 60% of their retail value. Thats good news for AT&T iPhone subscribers that want to switch to  the new Verizon iPhone 4.  They will receive more than the $199 subsidized price of a 2 year Verizon iPhone 4 plan.
