The Nokia Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 can be yours free if you trade-in your old iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or Galaxy S2. Microsoft wants to introduce iOS and Android OS users to the world of Windows Phone 8 mobile devices.

As WinBeta reports (Feb. 5), U.S. carrier Verizon is currently offering the iPhone 4S for free with a two-year contract so taking advantage of the Microsoft trade-in offer could be beneficial. Trading in an older model phone to the Microsoft Store lets you upgrade to a newer Windows Phone 8 device like the Lumia 1020 which would normally cost at least $100. The iPhone 4 dates back to 2010, succeeded by the iPhone 4S a year later. Like the iPhone 4S, the Galaxy S2 was also released in 2011 and in cell phone years considered pretty old.

To be eligible for the Microsoft Store trade-in promotion, new and existing customers must sign up for a 2-year contract with AT&T. The iPhone 4, 4S or Galaxy S2 must be able to power on and be fully functional with no broken or missing parts. Be sure to bring the original accessories that came with the phone including the charger with you when you head over to your nearest Microsoft Store.

Some key specs of the Nokia Lumia 1020 include a 4.5-inch AMOLED 1280 x 768 resolution display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB RAM. On deck is 32GB of Internal storage with no expandable MicroSD slot. The Lumia 1020 is equipped with a 41MP autofocus Pureview camera with Zeiss optics, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and high-resolution 3x zoom.

In comparison, the specs rundown for the Nokia Lumia 1520 consists of a 6-inch AMOLED 1920 x 1080 resolution display, a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor alongside 2GB RAM. Storage size is 16GB with an expandable MicroSD slot to add up to 64GB of additional space. It has a built-in 20MP autofocus camera with OIS, Zeiss optics and 2x zoom.

The Microsoft Store promotion to upgrade your old iPhone 4, 4S or Galaxy S2 to a Nokia Lumia 1050 or Lumia 1520 ends March 2, or while supplies last.
