Sprint has recently expanded its mobile phone buyback program to include handsets from any carrier, as long as it is on the list of 1,003 accepted devices. Consumers can simply trade in their old phone and receive a credit on their Sprint account.
"The new Sprint Buyback program will allow customers to take advantage of the current value of their unused cell phones and will reduce the number of wireless devices that end up in landfills," said Sprint CEO Dan Hesse.
Credit amounts range from $4.00 for simplistic no-frills phones to $249.60 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS. There are a couple catches, though: consumers are only eligible for the credit if they are activating a new phone or upgrading their existing device from Sprint. Up to three phones can be traded in at once.
According to a report from ABI Research, 98% of people who had never recycled a handset said they would be likely to do so if there was monetary compensation.
