Update 18 November 2015 : Check here Apple iPhone 6S/ 6S Plus Exchange Offer on iPhone 6/ 6 Plus/ 5S - iPhone Upgrade Program
Update : Since iPhone 5 has been discontinued, there is a new exchange offer for the latest launched iPhone 5c , check it here - iPhone 5c exchange offer.
Did you ever think that Apple (or Redington India, its distribution partner ) will launch an exchange scheme for the new Apple iPhone 5 A couple of weeks back, all the online retail stores were showing iPhone 5 as out of stock and now they have launched exchange scheme.
Yeah , right! Redington India has launched such scheme in which you can exchange your old smartphone with the Apple iPhone 5. In this scheme, there is a list of retailers to whom you can go and show your old smartphone. They will tell you its market (resale) value and then you will have an option to buy the new iPhone 5 by paying the difference money (that is Rs.44,500 - resale value of your phone ) and giving your old smartphone.
I called a retailer to exchange my iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 and he quoted me Rs.15,000 for my iPhone 4 (but Apple has not listed old iPhone 4 in the exchange offer :)) and Rs.8,000 for Nokia Lumia 710. It means I have to shell out around Rs.30k more to exchange my iPhone 4 with the new iPhone 5 . (Apple is selling all the iPhone variants at the MRP whereas they are available at discounted prices online).
The offer is available on iPhone 5 (16 GB,32 GB, 64 GB). The same offer is also available on iPhone 4S (16GB) and iPhone 4 (8GB).
How much cash discount will I get for my old smartphone? Minimum Rs.7,000.
You will get cash discount above that if the market value of your smartphone is more than that. There is no fixed market value for an old smartphone but you can get an idea about it from your local mobile shop or you can call the below-mentioned stores to know estimated price.
Note : Apple has listed the limited number of Smartphones under the exchange scheme:
