Best Buy Employee "Confirms" iPhone Coming to Sprint
A BestBuy employee is "confirming" that Sprint is about to carry the iPhone. And a formal announcement about the carrier welcoming the iPhone to its 4G network could come as early as next month's WWDC conference, which - as we learned today - will kick off June 7th with a keynote address from Apple CEO Steve Jobs. So will Jobs unveil the Sprint iPhone at the conference?
Historically, however, Best Buy employees are notoriously left in the dark regarding major announcements and product releases. Even ahead of the iPad's release, very few credible stories - or even leaks - were traced back to Best Buy and the store's myriad workers. Apple, however, does have a stellar relationship with Best Buy and, for this reason, it isn't altogether inconceivable that an employee could be privy to advanced information - either by accident or design.
Without question, a 4G capable 4th generation iPhone would be a massively appealing reality for millions of current or potential smartphone buyers. But for the very reason that some say its simply "too good to be true," perhaps we will have to concur with that assessment until more concrete evidence of a Sprint iPhone surfaces in the days and weeks to come.

how can a best buy employer "confirm" it? i do hope this is true though, for the sake of AT&T loosing exclusivity.

Great... They got cheap plans.... Unlike AT&T ...hope it's true
05-24-2010, 10:38 AM #4
I don't kno...with the HTC evo kicking in...I doubt this is true

man, this would be amazing. Sprint wouldn't be number 3 for long if this is true.

Next a T-Mobile store city garbage man will announce iPhone coming to T-Mobile this summer.
And with that you can place this rumor in the garbage.

This is ridiculous. Not even Apple Store employees and managers are informed about this kind of stuff much less 3rd party companies.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

Hmm, people complain about coverage with AT&T, why would apple go with Sprint over VZ? Does Apple like people complaining about the iphone and its relationships?

Interesting.............AT&T & Sprint seem to be Allies. It's always AT&T vs Verizon, and Sprint on the sidelines watching.

Best Buy employee confirms itchy balls. WTF are you doing quoting some random dude making minimum wage at a sh!t store? I'm calling BS on this one. Apple just magically pulled a WiMax iPhone with a 30 minute battery life out of it's arse without letting Gray Powell test it first. I'm not buying it. Time for more beer.
