More Evidence Unearthed of Possible Sprint iPhone 4S This September
In January, Lowell MacAdam, President and Chief Operating Officer of Verizon, began his presentation that revealed the Verizon iPhone by telling the audience of tech reporters that "if the press writes something long enough and hard enough, it eventually becomes true." For the next five months, speculation subsequently turned to the prospect of further US carrier expansion - a discussion partially engendered by Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook.
At the January Verizon iPhone announcement at Rose Hall inside New York City's Lincoln Center, Cook stated that his company's agreement with Verizon for the CDMA iPhone is "non-exclusive." Given that reality, journalists began pointing out that Apple could easily bring future generations of its touchscreen smartphone to Sprint's CDMA network.
This week, somewhat thin but still noteworthy evidence was presented to suggest that the Sprint iPhone may be in the works. On the heels of reports that Apple is poised to release the iPhone 4S this September on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint in the US, it has since been discovered that Apple had posted a curious job listing in search of a "carrier engineer" in the geographic proximity of Kansas City, MO - just 20 minutes from Sprint's headquarters. Clearly, it would be an unusual place for an Apple carrier engineer to be stationed if there was, in fact, no looming partnership between Apple and Sprint.
The job posting, however, which was first discovered by the blog "Stop it, AT&T," is already gone. A short while after the discovery - and the logical linking between Apple and Sprint was made - Apple suddenly pulled the Kansas City, MO employment opening. Is that evidence of Apple catching their accidental revelation? Or has the company simply filled the position? We don't know for sure. But we may very well know soon enough if the iPhone 4S is coming to a Sprint store near you.

That still won't save sprint from gong down the toilet. Their customer service and cellular service sucks and they have the slowest data network.

This is the evolution of a product the iPhone 4 is just that good it should be on all major carriers.

Sprint has probably the most competitive phone plans out of all the major carriers. They also had the first LTE network in the United States. I know we're pretty much guaranteed an iphone without LTE this year, but there's still hope to me with this news.

Am kind of excited to see that T-MOB iPhone.

Unless the network speeds of the iPhone 4S are greater on any network other than AT&T, I am not switching carriers.
Verizon CDMA is too slow. If I wanted an iPhone 4 on EDGE, I'd just head over to the Haight district of San Francisco. But, I enjoy my fast 3G connection.
If all features and network speeds were equal, then I'd go off of price by the carriers. If iPhone hits sprint, I'm sure plenty of people would jump on the opportunity to use the Sprint 'unlimited everything' plan. If speeds were comparable to AT&T, I'd jump ship.

The big one to add will be China Telecom, I think they have 80+ million users.

Every carrier has service areas where they are strong and weak so it's subjective depending on who you talk to and where they live. Same goes for customer service... it all depends on the rep or manager you get that particular day.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
