Microsoft Store swapping old feature phones for Windows Phones

A friend of a friend of tech reporter Dave Zatz claims that the Microsoft Store in Tysons Corner Center, Washington D.C., is swapping any old phone with web access for a new Windows Phone. Zatz's tweet went out at 2:06 PM Tuesday and featured a screenshot of the friend of a friend's Facebook post.

According to that person's Facebook update, the Microsoft Store was swapping any old feature phone with basic web access with a brand-new Windows Phone. A great deal like that is obviously going to be incredibly popular, which seems to be the case because the Microsoft Store was already out of stock of Windows Phones at the time of the Facebook post. 

The store was instead giving out $10 gift cards to be used toward a Windows Phone at a later date, when they are restocked in two weeks. There are reportedly no contracts or activation requirements to claim this deal.

It is unknown if any other Microsoft Store locations are participating in this promotion. The Microsoft Store in Tysons Corner Center is the only Microsoft Store in the Washington D.C. area, and was the 14th Microsoft Store in the nation.
