Remember the other day we reported that Sprint could be introducing an iPhone trade-in promotion? As it turns out the leak was right on the money and Sprint has since announced the trade-in program. For those who might have missed the news, this is a promotion held by Sprint that will offer iPhone users a chance to trade-in their device for a brand new iPhone 4S with $100 credit towards the phone along with a new two-year contract. This is to help attract iPhone users on other networks who might have an older iOS device and who are looking to upgrade without having to spend too much money.


According to the folks at TNW, the new iPhone has be activated by the 3rd of July and trade-ins have to be completed by the 14th of August.
