I came to the EVO line (4G now 3D) from the Iphone 4 and I couldn't care less if they're getting the Iphone. Just had to throw that in! Anyways, that's just a rumor for now. No one has confirmed any of it. It may or may not happen. Why would you want such a boring phone and OS? Sorry, I just can't quit slamming Apple. To each his own. I hope they do for all you brainwashed IOS people. It would probably be good for Sprint.
To have a fair share of the market, Sprint will get the i-phone. Just like armyeodsgt, I don't really care for the I-phone since Apple sucks. Many rumors have it that the new I-phone will be universal (GSM and SIM) so there will be only one device, but since I-phone 4 came without 4G, I think apple has a lot to do to catch up with HTC and other brands.
Yes Sprint will be selling the Apple iphone 5, the most recent date of release is Septmeber 15, 2012. However, the news is stating their may be a parts shortage. Sprint representative has informed me today that they will not handle preorders and all information will be stated online when made available.
