Sprint Begins Pre-Orders For 4 Now and iPhone 4S On October 7
For those of you who didn’t already know, Sprint recently confirmed unlimited data for the iPhone – making it the only carrier to have unlimited data for new customers. AT&T once had unlimited data available and introduced tiered data plans after some time. When the iPhone 4 was first released for Verizon, the Big Red also decided to start out with unlimited data plans to attract new customers but shortly after introduced the tiered data plans. It seems that Sprint is headed down the same route, so we should expect to see tiered data plans in the near future for Sprint as well.
For existing Sprint customers and for those of you who plan to take advantage of advantage of unlimited data plans, pre-orders are now open for the iPhone 4. The pre-orders for the upcoming iPhone 4S will be available starting October 7 (just like the pre-orders for the iPhone 4S on AT&T and Verizon). It is mentioned that the pre-orders are only available “while supplies last” so don’t wait too long otherwise you might be stuck without your shiny new iOS device.
If you are interested, hit the source link below to pre-order your iPhone 4 now and if you are interested in the iPhone 4S, I would recommend bookmarking the page to pre-order tomorrow.

AT&T has the iPhone 4 (8 gig) available for pre-order as well today.

I don't know, I read their unlimited plan comes with 5gb tethered data, if that's the case they may not need to go to tiered plans like AT&T and Verizon. I like using my 30mps wifi at home, so I never go over 2gb per month.

I wish I still had my 25% discount for sprint anymore. To bad they changed that all around also so it only applies to the main 2 lines. I wonder how long before you can flash these to boost?

lol love their advertisement! (measly)
If they stay unlimited we just may have some competition between these companies!
Our competitors love to limit you to a measly 2GB of data usage. AT&T and Verizon give you unlimited text and talk, but they charge you extra after you reach that limit. At Sprint, our Everything Data plans give you unlimited data, messages and calls to or from any U.S. mobile phone nationwide while on the Sprint Network.

I had the HTV EVO 4G with Sprint for just under a year (loved the phone by the way). I can say that their data speeds are slow and their 3G is spotty. I thought I could live with their data plan but I just could not. I do have unlimited with AT&T but rarely go over the standard 2GB (I don't think I have in the past 6 months). On Sprints network I was using less than 1GB a month just because of how painfully slow the network is. This is definitely something for prospective Sprint customers to consider. I also ended up paying more with Sprint than I do at AT&T, although with Sprint I had a =single line whereas ATT I have a family plan.
Another thing to consider is how many things Sprint changed/removed just prior to the iPhone launch. They got rid of their early upgrades (which was one of the reasons I signed up in the first placed) and hiked their ETF. Really the only bragging rights they currently have is the unlimited (significantly slower) data. If they see a huge influx of NEW CUSTOMERS as a result of the iPhone acquisition I am betting they will likely do the same thing. It is honestly the most logical thing to do; limit bandwidth but also make packages cheaper.

I really have considered going Sprint because of the unlimited. The downside is not being able to talk and surf at the same time. To me, that kind of technology seems obsolete.
As for AT&T's iPhone 4S... It's just too expensive in the long run. All that "speed" with only 2gb of data is asking for trouble. I'd get charges $40-$50 a month from going over 2gb. It's not worth it.... it's just a damn money trap.
