Got old phones lying around? Want to upgrade to the new iPad, but don't want to break the bank doing it? Check out Verizon's new streamlined trade-in program. If you previously participated in the trade-in program to receive cash for your old devices, you had to wait for it to come in the mail.* No one likes waiting, so Verizon has decided to ditch the old mail out method in favor of electronic gift cards that can be used towards any new device. Now your new iPad is that much closer!
Verizon Wireless is now offering all models of the new iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G and a range of attractive data plans that will allow customers to connect to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network with speeds up to 10 times faster than previously available on 3G. Additionally, Verizon Wireless is supporting the Personal Hotspot feature of the new iPad so users can share their fast network connection with up to 5 other devices using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or USB.
The third generation iPad is a category defining mobile device that features a stunning new Retina display, Apple's new A5X chip with quad-core graphics and a 5 megapixel iSight camera with advanced optics for capturing amazing photos and 1080p HD video. It also still delivers the same all-day 10 hour battery life* while remaining amazingly thin and light. iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G is world-ready, allowing users to connect to fast networks worldwide when they travel.
"Customers have been enthusiastic over the iPad on our 3G network and we expect even more excitement for the new iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network," said Tami Erwin, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. "With more and more customers depending on their iPad for business, as well as personal use, it is important that they have a network that delivers high speed and reliability, nationwide."

Leftover phones are recycled in a manner not detrimental to the environment.
