Yesterday, we found the best deals on preorders for the Samsung Galaxy S III. It appears Samsung did not want to keep enterprise uses out of the third Samsung Galaxy. Today, Samsung's marketing releases highlight all the SAFE security features and as an added bonus, if you trade a nearly new competing smartphone you can get a refund of up to $300.
Out of the box, the SAFE-branded Galaxy S III supports enterprise-support for 338 IT Policies:
- On-device AES-256 bit encryption.
- Enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
- Support for industry-leading Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions.
Samsung is also announced SAFE2SWITCH, a trade-up program that offers competitive pricing for qualifying smartphones. Non-functioning phones will get you nothing, liquid damage or a broken screen bring down the price considerably.
We tried to trade-in a Samsung Galaxy S II from AT&T which will get a $150 refund. The Samsung Captivate, you bought two years ago can be traded for $40.
An AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9900 will bring $150 trade-in while a 16GB iPhone 4S goes for $215 or $43 if the screen is broken. A year-old Motorola Atrix will make a $75 trade-in.
For Verizon owners, an HTC Rezound will bring $220, a Droid Charge $65, Galaxy Nexus $185 or Droid RAZR MAXX @ $275. We hit the jackpot of $300 for an iPhone 4S 64GB.
If you want to keep your double data or unlimited data on Verizon Wireless, you can preorder the Samsung Galaxy S III as your last subsidized phone before the change over to shared plans on June 28 when you’ll have to pay full retail price for a phone if you want to keep your unlimited data plan.
