Will we be getting the iphone this year. I have been waiting patiently for the iphone to come to sprint. If we dont get the iphone this year i will have to switch to Verizon. Im sure i speak for a lot of your costomers when i say that i will leave sprint for verizon in a heartbeat if we dont get the iphone. Please let us know as soon as possible.
I completely agree! If the iPhone 5 gets released and Sprint hasn't fought to deliver, then it's going to be time for me to jump ship. CDMA is no longer the road block and from my point of view Apple needs to expand to every carrier in the interest of gaining marketshare in the smart phone market, so Sprint should have some leverage in the conversation. I'm definitely fearful that Sprint is going the way of Blockbuster and Borders.
i have many techno-nerd friends and family, a couple of which are computer/phone techs and they say the iphone is junk and they own the iphone. They said the Android platform is much better and the HTC and Samsung phones are better than anything iphone can offer. do yourself a favor and stick with Sprint and ***** the iphone....you wont have anyone tracking your every move either.
Why does everyone care so much for the Iphone? Unless its simply for reasons of jumping on the bandwagon then I understand.
if you view this issue in a logical manner switching carriers and possibly paying cancelation fees just to get an iphone is ridiculous.
First off, Verizon charges an arm and a leg to get on with them. I'm a college student and i was looking for a good individual plan, and in order for me to open a plan with Verizon they were charging me 400 dollars just for the deposit. ridiculous.
Secondly, this isn't simply a matter of over the table negotiations. Apple is a very strict market to tap into and they are very limited on who they associate themselves with.
Thirdly, the app market for apple charges for EVERYTHING. If you were to run a side by side comparison on cost of apps on an android and apple...it would be way cheaper on an android phone, not to mention android is quickly surpassing apple as the most commonly used platform in the world, so a wider distrubution means more apps to choose from.
Like i said, if you are complaining about not having an iphone on sprint, then you are looking at it the wrong way, Sprint has released 2 excellent 4g phones that Cnet.com even ranks as top choices, maybe if you didn't jump on the band wagon, you would realize the market is more expansive than just a logo.
You know nothing against the Iphone but they are now trying to keep up with Android. Why do you actually want the iphone? So you can say "look at me I have an iphone". I have used the iphone and my 3d blows it out of the water. Not only that I can do as I wish with my Android based phone, where as anything you want to do with you iphone "HAS" to be done through itunes.... FTMFL. Tell me one thing that iphone has that Anroid does not?
Here let me pay to cancel my plan, then pay a new carrier for an iphone only to get limited data. O
iPhone! uPhone! we all want an iPhone! What is up Sprint?!?
If I didn't live in a canyon that only gets Sprint, I would have left a long time ago to get one....but I have heard there are now signal boosters so I will investigate.
It isn't that I'm not willing to try what you offer. I called every day when the Evo came out and returned it in a week. Too heavey. Too hot. My finger pads must not be where they should be because I could not make the touch screen behave at all ... maybe when you are over 50 your finger pads also wrinkle and they are not where you think they are!?! I tried the Rumor or one of the slide out key boards....again, impossible. I have no trouble with the iPhone at all when I use those that belong to friends.
Again, iPhone. uPhone! we ALL want an iPhone.
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
