I bought the Evo 4G in August of 2010. I got one last yearly upgrade (stupid policy changes), so I upgraded to the 4S the day after release.
About a month ago, I was looking at my Sprint account online, and it said that I had an upgrade available. I thought that it must be because I just upgraded, and they hadn't updated their system yet.

Well I checked today, and it was still telling me that I am eligible for an upgrade! Just to make sure, I texted the Sprint upgrade number, and sure enough it's telling me that I have an upgrade. Did I simply get lucky?

Do you have a 2nd phone line on that account? I know I just upgraded on the 1 st of this month, and I got a notice for a upgrade, for my 2nd line. If you don't have a 2nd line use the upgrade fast, just in case it's an error. Congrats, it's your lucky day. Enjoy #

Quick! Order a second 4S and sell it before the glitch goes away!

Is a mistake they did, it happened to me before and DO NOT BUY THE WINDOWS PHONE 7 on sprint pretty much sucks you will waste your money at least wait for the Nokia , if anything I would buy an iPhone 4s and sell it on eBay or Craigslist , I got my evo 3d upgraded on June an didn't go away I decided to go to the store and get another phone for my wife and it worked .... :D did you buy your iPhone at the sprint store?

Ahhh I'm torn!!

I want to save the upgrade for next year's phone, but at the same time I want to take advantage of this and use the upgrade and sell it.

I'm on AT&T... Ordered a Skyrocket 2 weeks ago on AT&T's website on a Saturday morning and by Sunday night the system said I was still eligible for a upgrade. Drove to Best Buy and picked up an iPhone 4S at the discounted rate. The Skyrocket shipped out that Monday and sold it on eBay by Wednesday.. There is definitely a loop hole in the upgrade system..

Honest question: How exactly do you sell an on contract iPhone? I mean, if the OP were to buy the 2nd 4S with the upgrade price, would the OP just sell his old 4S? Or the newly activated 4S?

Which ever he decides, he just need to erase everything of the other one to be activated in another account
