Reminder: Microsoft will buy your old iPhone for at least $200 in credit

This is just a friendly reminder that the #timetoswitch campaign is kicking off. Microsoft is launching the program in select Stores across the US and Canada, which will enable you to drop off your iPhone and receive a minimum of $200 in gift cards. This credit can then be used at the store for anything, including a shiny new Windows Phone.

The deal states the company is looking for an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5. Do note that you'll need to bring in the power cord and the handset cannot be password protected. Also, be sure to give the unit a good wipe to remove personal data. Finally, you're only allowed to do this once per customer. Be sure to check with your local Microsoft Store to see if they're participating in this offer. Expires November 3rd, so act promptly.

So, any of you know anyone who will actually do this?
