Sprint, comparatively late to the iPhone party, really wants to steal potential iPhone 4S owners away from the ranks of Verizon and AT&T.
Which is why the carrier plans to offer consumers a carrot: Trade in your current iPhone and get at least $100 towards the purchase of the iPhone 4S. Offered in conjunction with a new line and two-year contract, the deak will run from May 18th to June 30th, TechnoBuffalo reports.
With the $100 discount, the cost of a new 16GB iPhone 4S drops to $99, making for a very tempting buy for those still on the fence. More, that discount could potentially be higher than $100, as Sprint emphasizes above.
Sprint is extending the deal to both new and existing customers, though the offer is clearly all about the former group. The company has to make that iPhone investment pay off in any way it can, after all.
