    Default Sprint Employees Ordered Not to Speculate About Getting the iPhone


    Last week rumors surfaced that the iPhone would finally find its way to all the major U.S. cell carriers. Today a leaked "No Comment" internal memo, sent out to Sprint employees, is being viewed as confirmation of the rumors.

    SprintFeed recieved the leaked internal memo which reads:

    A recent Wall Street Journal article mentioned that Sprint is getting the iPhone 5. If you're asked by a customer or just talking to friends or family members, you need to avoid making any comment about the iPhone and simple [sic] state "no comment.
    Employees were also given instructions on what to tell curious customers when asked directly about the prospect of Sprint getting the iPhone.

    Yes, I saw a few of those reports, I don't have any information to share.
    Apparently someone employed at Sprint thought the memo was "share" worthy and decided to leak it. The memo shares no real details about Sprint launching an iPhone, but the fact that an internal memo needed to be sent dealing with the issue is proof of the interest in the iPhone among Sprint users.

    Apple is in a position to expand its stake in the U.S. cellphone market, and emerging markets across the world. They have the money... the production capability... and if Apple releases a cheaper iPhone 4[S], they now have the right price entry points to win over tens of millions of buyers. Tim Cook may have taken over at just the right time.

    I hope no Sprint iPhone. There goes the unlimited and then we get a slow network.
