Sprint: Trade in old iPhone, get $100 towards iPhone 4S

Sprint: Trade in old iPhone, get $100 towards iPhone 4S

Summary: Sprint is trying to make buying the iPhone 4S on one if its plans more enticing with its latest promotion.

SHARE:

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.

  • I've been on Sprint since November with the 4S

    I'm happier than I was with AT&T..the speeds may not be as fast but I'm not under the fear of having a throttle imposed on me by going over some "Unlimited" data cap..and I have yet to drop a call with anyone on Sprint that's the fault of Sprint, the only calls I have dropped it was the other person losing signal. I live 1/2 mile from an AT&T tower and I'd drop signals in my back yard talking on the phone to someone....can't tell you how many times AT&T told me "Oh its your SIM card that's the problem"...gee really?

    4 SIM cards and 3 iPhones on AT&T and your service still sucked.

    1 SIM card and 1 iPhone on Sprint and working like a champ.

  • I wonder how much they'd give me for a used iPhone 4s?

    That runs on Verizon, after all the phone could beresold to work on Sprint. It would just need a firmware flash to work.
