Yes, Sprint is getting the new Iphone 5. October 5th or 15th, it will be released for purchase or reserve. Sprint will be the only carrier offering the unlimited data plan for it, thus causing them to end their Sprint Premier Service.

For those dying to find out what will happen next, if you don't already know what's going on..., Apple is having their press event tomorrow. You can follow along @ http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/03/apples-lets-talk-iphone-event-is-tomorrow-get-your-livebl/
Sprint is scheduled to have their press event on the 7th last I heard.
As for the nay-sayers, yes I know about the existence of photoshop. Engadget does have a decent reputation for eccuracy, however. Take it however you like.
so now that iPhone is coming to sprint ... where are our options to pre-order friday? Sprint, RadioShack, BestBuy?? I do not see any info on that. I am also upset that they didnt change to a bigger screen, thinner and 4g with the iphone but i guess u cant get everything. I am sure we still have to pay the $10 premieum fee even though the device is not 4g ... can anyone confirm.
It will be easy to find a case for the device being that its the same exact size as the existing iPhone4
Don't really care if it is the Iphone 4S ..I'm happy Sprint got it..my question is why does Sprint not have any info on hteir website as of yet? It has been confirmed and is on Apple's site so Sprint why are you taking so long?
