According to the Wall Street Journal, Sprint is going to be offering the iPhone 5 starting mid-October. As someone who used to work for Sprint at their headquarters hopefully this will help curb the layoffs they are known so well for in the Kansas City area.
The deal could help prop up the nation’s third-largest carrier and give AT&T Inc. more ammunition in its attempt to win regulatory approval for its proposed acquisition of No. 4 U.S. carrier T-Mobile USA Inc.
Verizon Wireless and AT&T, the two largest wireless carriers, measured by subscribers, will begin selling the phone in mid-October as well, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Sprint had more than 52 million subscribers at the end of the second quarter, compared with 106 million for Verizon and nearly 99 million for AT&T.
