Sprint retail stores on the East Coast are claiming to be nearly sold out of iPhone 5 inventory, according to a statement that Sprint provided to AllThingsD. The sales for the iPhone 5 have been robust at most locations with customers being told they might not get their iPhone for a few weeks. According to AllThingsD:
"At this time, the majority of East Coast Sprint-branded retail stores are seriously constrained or sold out of iPhone 5 inventory provided to us by Apple," the carrier said. "Our stores will be resupplied as soon as additional devices are received from Apple."
This is probably due to a mixture of people hopping ship to obtain unlimited data plans, which Sprint still offers to iPhone users and also due to just overall high demand for the iPhone 5 compared to previous smartphones and iterations of the iPhone. Are any of you Sprint customers who are currently waiting for an iPhone 5 to come to stock? If so, share your experience.
