Sprint expands their "Buyback" program - now includes phones from other carriers
We're guessing that not everyone plans on keeping their old handset forever – especially when there are so many incentives from carriers that allow you to upgrade to newer devices. Instead of giving it to a friend or family member as a hand me down, you can simply take advantage of Sprint's expanded Buyback program. Sprint has launched the new initiative that intends to boost US wireless recycling rates as opposed to seeing those old handsets end up in landfills. The new offer now enables existing or new customers to receive an instant point-of-sale credit for devices they end up giving to the wireless provider – they're actually accepting all makes and models; regardless of the manufacturer or carrier. If you plan on taking up this offer, you'll have to visit any of the over 1,000 participating Sprint-owned retail stores nationwide that'll give you approximately between $5 and up to $300 for your old handset. For example,  a BlackBerry Bold 9700 will fetch a $161.05 credit while an LG enV2 for $35.59. Rather than having to make a trip to those stores, customers can simply check out where it'll provide you an estimate for your handset – so there's no wasting precious time going to a store if it doesn't spark your interest. So if you're eying one of Sprint's current or future handsets, you may want to check out this offer if you're a bit strapped for cash right now.
