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.
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 screw the iphone....you wont have anyone tracking your every move either.
THIS IS THE LAST YEAR I AM WAITING TOO!!! I DONT GIVE A FUCK IF I HAVE TO PAY CANCELATION FEES FOR ALL MY PHONES !! EITHER U GUYS STEP IT UP OR WE ARE OUT THE DOOR !!!
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.
IT WOULD BE GREAT IF SPRINT COULD ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT GETTING THE IPHONE CAUSE I COULD GET RIDE OF THIS P*** OF S**T HTC TOUCH PRO2 PHONE
I am interested in knowing this as well. I am really torn as I like the Sprint service but want the iPhone. Do you think you will ever carry the iPhone?
Really??????? "if we don't get the iphone this year I will have to switch to sprint" then you say "i will leave sprint for verizon" which is it?
