    • You might not know but the reuse and recycle program works for PCs( I didn’t told you mac. An actual windows pc), ipads and iphones. 

  4. Hi Aman,

    This is a great deal from Apple. My sister is just waiting to get her hands to the new iPhone from Apple. I am sure she will be glad to part with her existing one for this great deal. Will share this with her and some of my friends who are just freaking out with the Apple gadgets.


    • So glad i could help. I am overwhelmed to see such kind of activity on the article. You can just follow me on twitter as a token of appreciation. 

  5. This is great way to save money and get rid of your old phone. Very interesting post, thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. Apple is not only preparing to launch iPhone 5 but is indirectly trying to keep its customers hooked. The company does not only believe in selling new products but is also taking initiative to buy old products from its customers and exchanging them with any new product. Isn’t the idea just WOW. No third party in between, its all between you and Apple. The blog gives you a tutorial on how to sell your old iPhone back to Apple and get it exchanged with any other Apple product of your choice. What else does a customer want?

  7. That was really great deal! Now Apple fans can afford for every upcoming iPhones. But it seems weird that selling their own product to them itself :/. Moreover, this is an awesome way to increase sales.    

  8. Once again Apple rocks! Sell their own product to them at a handsome amount isnn’t a bad deal.

  9. Technology is going on very high level then why you are handling old one so go and get it this offer when it will come in market.

  10. Well, this sounds actually very much fascinating but may be it is not that easy. There would surely be some hidden conditions or terms which we are unknown to. Apple is taking a big step in order to launch and promote its Iphone 5 and will not be ready to take up any losses.
