If the HTC One ends up being a failure, it won’t be from a lack of effort. The folks at HTC have been doing a much better job getting the One’s name out to the public, it doesn’t hurt that it’s also been getting rave reviews either. Both reviewers and consumers alike are loving the new HD display, quick performance and even HTC’s latest version of Sense, not to mention BoomSound, BlinkFeed and Zoes.
But what if the HTC One is out of your price range, it’s not to hard to image, some folks are strapped for cash or they’re stuck in their two-year contract. This weekend, HTC has teamed up with national (and some regional) carriers to offer a special trade-in program to help you walk out with a brand new HTC One. Simply walk into AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint and say you’re there for HTC’s “One Phone, One Weekend” offer. Depending on whether or not your existing phone qualifies for the offer, you could be looking at a trade value between $100 and $375 to put towards the new One, which off contract costs only $575.
To make it even easier to leave behind your old device, participating carriers can transfer all your content over to the One.
If you’re coming from another Android device, HTC can:
Transfer your contacts, camera photos and videos, music, messages, bookmarks, calendars, and setting.
If you have an iPhone, HTC can:
Transfer your contacts, camera photos and videos, messages, bookmarks, wallpapers, and calendars.
