How much is the phone to buy outright? Can I trade in and buy outright and still get the $200 credit? I have a GS3. How much does it worth?

Which one is better and hold better in value down the road? S8+ or V30?

It seems that S8+ will hold a better value later on. If you go to V30 reddit, there's lots of complaint on screen uniformity and banding as well as front facing camera quality.

From my experience with Fido, I did very similar trade and got LG G6 by trading a BB Z10. If the phone is one of the listed and in working condition, you will get $200 off.

LG G6 has nice rear cameras but I'm not happy with front camera too. Pictures turned more like a canvas art , I believe the software does it.

Thank you

I've owned my S7 32gb for 1 year and it's still in perfect condition thanks to Spigen for their quality cases and a $3 tempered glass protector.

Just to give you an idea, I can get $180 today for my phone at ebgames or a pawn shop that pays top dollar. Obviously much more on Craigslist/Kijiji. I sold my S6 last year for just over $300 can't recall the exact amount but it was also in mint condition and kept in a case with screen protector.

With the current trend of phones not having user-removable batteries, I'm finding it harder to find a suitable phone even though the newer features and capabilities are very tempting.

Fido was giving out $400 in trade in credit for the LG G6, shame they halved it for the V30.

because profit margins are huge on a phone with 2016 specs selling for 2017 price

$999.00 (No Term Device Price) - $280.00 (Economic Inducement) = $719.00 (Device Charge)

Pardon my ignorance but what is economic inducement?

I spent awhile talking to both in store and online reps. Even with this $200 trade in AND loyalty discounts (both are applicable only on contracts) it's still hundreds of dollars cheaper to buy this outright and use a BYOD plan. IMO, wait for Black Friday and see what deals you get for this vs the S8+. Apparently Best Buy gave out TVs last year with the V20.
