Customers praise Sprint’s for offering the only unlimited data plan with the iPhone
As the only U.S. carrier to offer new and existing customers the iPhone experience with unlimited data plans, Sprint celebrated its best-ever first day sales of any Sprint device family with the launch of iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 on Friday, October 14.

- “I’m super excited! This is my first iPhone. I haven’t been in line since I was 10 years old for a Furby! I did my research and Sprint’s coverage in the city is great. I plan to use data all the time, so the unlimited data and pricing is the best deal.” - Mikki Manfredonia, San Francisco, Calf.
- “Sprint’s customer service has been fantastic. It’s the biggest reason why I switched. Plus your unlimited offer the best plans and pricing.” - Michael Fortson, San Francisco, Calif.
