    Verizon has broken AT&Ts exclusive hold on the iPhone in the U.S. and is looking to tempt some of the latter's customers with an attractive trade-in offer.

    Verizon reportedly sent an e-mail to corporate customers with details of a trade-in credit option: bring Verizon an old iPhone bought through AT&T and you'll be rewarded with a handsome credit toward a Verizon iPhone. Verizon is offering $60 for an original 16GB iPhone, $105 for a 16GB iPhone 3G, $160 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS, $280 for a 16GB iPhone 4, and $360 for a 32GB iPhone 4.

    It's not clear if that offer applies to non-corporate customers as well. We've reached out to Verizon for more information.

    Trade-in offers usually pop up from retailers like Radio Shack, Best Buy, and Target whenever a new iPhone goes on sale--and are always available through the sites like Gazelle and NextWorth--but because there's only been one carrier in the U.S., we have yet to see two iPhone carriers battling directly for each other's customers.

    Verizon also revealed details about the pre-order process for current Verizon customers. Customers have to place the order through their current account with the carrier online. The whole thing kicks off at 3 a.m. Eastern on February 3. Verizon warns that the supply of pre-order iPhones is limited, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Those who are not already a Verizon customer will have to wait until February 10, when the iPhone goes on sale to everyone.

    Just for giggles I did the following 3 phones to see how VZW valued them:

    16gb iPhone 4 - $212
    32gb iPhone 4 - $285

    Lol....Motorola E815 - $0

    You can get over $300 anywhere for a 16gb iphone 4 without even trying, Verizon's offering is a joke.

    Storm2 is a load of crap. Sell it on CL, I just kicked mine to the curb and got more than $44 for it.

    I still have one in the box, and the USB cable to reflash the software.

    Verizons offering all around is a joke. $96 dollars for a Droid X. I can easily sell this thing for $250-$350.
