The FCC reached a deal with five major wireless companies in the U.S. last year, the deal would make it easier for consumers to unlock their mobile phones.
Sprint seems to be keeping their part of the agreement by making all devices launched after February 11, 2015 unlockable, which means if you purchase a device after February 11, 2015 you will be able to to unlock it and use it on another domestic network such as AT&T or T-Mobile. Continue reading »
The Next Web is reporting that an internal email has been going around that both Sprint and Apple are working on a fix to the slow data speeds that are plaguing Sprint iPhone 4S owners. Sprint customers with an iPhone 4S have been experiencing slow data speeds since the iPhone 4S landed on the Sprint network October 14th. Ironically, many customers switched to AT&T for the fast unlimited data plan.Continue reading »
Apple, iPhone 5, News, rumorsComments Off on Sprint Reportedly Goes All-In For iPhone Deal; To Exclusively Get Redesigned iPhone 5
Wall Street Journal reports that Sprint has agreed to buy 30.5 million iPhones over the next four years from Apple for an average price of $655, which works out to $20 billion.
We’ve heard rumors that have claimed that Sprint – the third largest carrier in the US, will be offering Apple’s fifth generation iPhone, alongside with AT&T and Verizon. Sprint’s recent moves also seem to suggest that Sprint has been gearing up for the iPhone launch.
With less than 24 hours to go for Apple’s much awaited Let’s Talk iPhone event, Wall Street Journal has just dropped a bombshell.
We know how the iPhone 4 sizes up against the aging 3GS — but how does it fare against its fiercest competitors from all the major platforms? We wish we had some production Windows Phone 7 kit to check out here, but in the meantime, take a look at the results against the gruesome foursome of the EVO 4G, N8, Pre Plus, and HD2. You might be surprised by some of the results — and sorry, RIM, you don’t get to play until you bring some fresh, media-heavy hardware to the table. Nothing personal!
The ad features “Matt” and the appropriately-named iPhone-owner “Steve.”
“My friend Steve’s iPhone is cool, but it’s limited to AT&T’s 3G speeds,” Matt says. “So I’m going to use the Overdrive 4G mobile hotspot to make it up to ten times faster. And while that’s happening, I’m going to enjoy this tasty snack,” at which point Matt pulls out an apple and takes a bite. Steve connects to the Sprint 4G WiFi network on his iPhone and quickly begins streaming a music video which leads him to exclaim, “Whoa. Done.” The ad ends with Matt asking, “What can you do with 4G?” before the narrator chimes in, “Whatever you do, do it up to ten times faster than 3G with 4G from Sprint.”
Sprint was one of the first to attack the iPhone but now, like most wireless providers, wants to be an official iPhone carrier. Last September Charlie Rose asked Sprint CEO Dan Hesse how the Pre was stacking up against the iPhone, to which he replied, “It’s… it’s doing well, but you can almost put the iPhone, to be fair, in a separate category. The Apple brand and that device have done so well, it’s almost not… it’s like comparing someone to Michael Jordan.”
Well, if you can’t beat the star, why not make some sweet accessories to go along with those Air Jordans?
