will Sprint get the iphone?

I keep hearing about all the these rumors. I have been  a Sprint customer for years.  I have been holding off on going to AT&T for a couple years now, and don't want to.  I want the new Iphone, and keep reading that Sprint will have it by September 2010.  Are these just rumors?

Dear Sprint,

If you don't get the Iphone by this fall 2010, I am sorry but I am going to have to divorce you. 

Thanks

Re: will Sprint get the iphone?

yeah.  I figured so.  After I wrote that I kept searching on here about that and people have been saying Sprint is rumored to get an Iphone since 2007.  Too bad, I have had no issues with Sprint.  I guess off to the horrid At&t I go.  Thanks.

Re: will Sprint get the iphone?

I spoke with a sprint customoer service about a week and a half in the past regarding cancelling my service, they asked why and I told them the honest truth...id rather not switch but I want an iphone a phone you dont obviously carry after a few moment on hold a different person got on and said that they are slated to have a finalized deal and have the phone by november this year but im pretty sure they told me this just to have me stay on contract for six months more......I hope they are telling the truth

Yep, they lied to you. I called Sprint and asked for same thing and they said they don't see any future of the iphone here since Aplle and ATT have signed a multi-year contract regarding exclusive rights for the iphone until 2017. So no iphone coming to Sprint. You'll just have to get an HTC...

Too late.... I cracked and got the Iphone 4 a couple days ago.  Obviously, this is my first one and it is AMAZING!  No issues with AT&T either.  No dropped calls, and the customer service has been phenomenal.  Sorry Sprint, you have a 4g network, but I did not want another wanna be Iphone.  I could only imagine how many customers you lost that day Sprint.  Too bad.

Re: will Sprint get the iphone- from an at&t insider and happy sprint customer

Man, I am soo sorry you got the iphone.. I work for at&t and have sprint. Some major things with the iphone on att- 1 no longer do they have a unlimitted data plan- 2 dropped calls... at&t is horrible with the 3g coverage.. when they tell you it's the iphone... that would be partly correct- the other part is the iphone on at&t.. also.. at&t does not offer any type of insurance for the iphone.. if you break it, lose it, stolen which I hear at least  5 -6 calls a night on this.. well you have to purchase a new iphone at full price or their special " special " upgrade early price which is 499.99 for a 16 gig iphone. Terrible.. You do not have dropped calls yet but you will.. This is coming from an insider who has heard it from the horses mouth,that  being the customer and at&t themselves.  You would be better off getting a blackberry on at&t, again they do not have unlimitted data  anylonger .. and you have to have their data package in order to even get the phone that is considered a smartphone.. at&t is horrible.. I from my experience working with at&t know that once they lose the all mighty iphone, you will hear bubbles becauise at&t will sink. Many customers complain nonstop about dropped calls  and they always say,.. if it wern't for the iphone I'd be gone. I live in a rural area and only sprint and verizon have coverage in my area.. the commercials you see on tv.. they are dead on about at&t..we were taught to lie when customers call in.. oh and that exclusive clause they have.,.. it's not firm.. even at&t corp told us that the iphone exclusivity is gone very very soon.. and at&t is shaking

I personally think you all should compare the HTC evo to the new Iphone. Personally, I think the HTC evo is amazing compared to the Iphone. I was considering going with the Iphone until my friend and I started discussing it. He told me all of the things on the evo and it's just better. Granted it is a bit of a larger phone. But it works perfectly for me.

Is that you, Dan Hesse???

Give me a break.  Why on God's green Earth would an AT&T employee...

1. Carry a Sprint phone?

2. Be on the Sprint Community website?

3. Actually make claims that AT&T's network is inferior (regardless of how true it is)?

I smell a plant.  You do not work for AT&T, and if you did, you obviously do not value your job all that much.  If I was an AT&T supervisor, I would so look into whether employees are using company internet connections or are posting onto this website during business hours.   If anyone was found to have been doing so, they should be fired instantly.  After all, your post is inflamatory and could actually be used by AT&T itself as justification to not only fire you, but to then sue you for defamation of product/service.

Mind you, I have no love for AT&T.  I personally think their service is over priced and their choice in handsets is pretty lousy.  But I at least do NOT work for AT&T, nor Verizon, nor SprintNextel, nor T-Mobile, or any other phone company for that matter.

Still, the fact that you got online and posted such disdain for the company that puts food in your mouth and a roof over your head, I hope you get fired.  Have a nice day.

Wow, dude I hope you don't get fired and I hope that no one can track you back to your post! (I did like it!!) All phone companies have their flaws, same as people.  iPhone was false advertising to say that it was 4G, I have many friends who paid a lot of money and are dissapointed.  Apple should know better.
