Sprint iPhone 4S Pre-Order Starts Now!

By: t-marco October 7th, 2011

Starting today  you can pre-order you iPhone 4S from Sprint (if you are lucky). The iPhone 4S is priced the same way as the iPhone 4, which has been cut to $99 to clear inventory. The new phone costs $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64 GB, and will ship Oct. 14 in the U.S., U.K, Japan Australia, Canada, France, and Germany.

Aside from Sprint, Verizon promises to ship the 8GB iPhone 4 on October 13. AT&T isn’t providing availability time on the iPhone 4, but like its competitors, is offering pre-orders to customers.

    Yeah those prices are if you are a new customer or want to add a line, if you are a current customer you will pay full retail, $649, 749 and 849, respectively. plus there is no mention of sprint nab, tv, football or nacsar on th e new iPhones.

    Well….I started the day out as a very excited , loyal (20+ year) sprint customer, first in line to upgrade to a new iPhone. Leave it to Sprint Customer Service to completely and totally screw up the day. They are the most WORTHLESS bunch ever. The only problems I have EVER had with sprint have been with customer service and after today would encourage management to consider replacing all sprint stores with vending machines and the “live” assistance with a completely automated system as I’m sure both would be of more assis

    I just placed an upgrade pre-order for the 16GB iPhone 4S and it was $199 (plus tax and the $36 upgrade fee) so it doesn’t appear to be for new lines only.

    If you are on the family plan you can add a new line for $10/mo and get the $450 discount off list. Just switch phone numbers and you will probably save more than paying the ETF and/or full price. Cancel the original line once it is paid for.

    When you get a subsidized phone the carrier is recouping the subsidy over the lifetime of your contract. If you break the contract the carrier is going to want the remaining portion back from you. There is no free lunch. You can be as upset at you want to be but a carrier that is constantly losing money because people upgrade their phones early is not going to be in business for long.

    att says it has sold 200,000 phones. the sprint website gave me a sold out sign on the 16gb black iphone4s.

    Is unlimited data ending at the end of the month? Website says offer valid thru Oct 30 only.

    Also does sprint let you get incoming international calls like ATT?

    If you’ve been in the market for a new smartphone, you might be aware that Sprint recently announced that all of their smartphones activated after January 30 will have an additional $10 per month tacked onto the monthly bill. You can easily sidestep the new fee, however, if you get a referral from a Sprint employee. Don’t know anyone who works for Sprint? Then you might want to have a look at the blog of one Russ McGuire, VP of Strategy for Sprint. On it, he has prominently displayed on the right side all the info you need to get the special Sprint employee referral price.

    Just visit http://www.sprint.com/everythingplus and enter in Mr. McGuire’s email address (russ.s.mcguire@sprint.com) and the last three digits of his employee id (383). The plans on offer give you slightly more minutes and at least a $10 per month discount on the regular plans, but it only works for new customers or existing customers who are adding lines of service.

    “The iPhone 4S is priced the same way as the iPhone 4, which has been cut to $99 to clear inventory.”

    Not only is this a very poorly written sentence, it is also a false statement that shows your assumptions are leaking in as you write this crappy blog.

    They are not “clearing inventory” on the iPhone 4. In fact, Apple still makes the 3G iPhone (and it is available for free with a 2 year contract on other carriers)… you, in fact, just made that up.

    Do you consider yourself journalists or just people who write stuff?

    I have an HTC Evo. So why would I want an iPhone? I am sorry – if this had happened 18 months ago before I got hooked on Android, I would have been excited about it. Last week I had to wipe my phone (OK so Android does have its downside – this is the second time I’ve had to do this in 9 months) – within minutes, my contacts were there again, synced automatically with Google Contacts. Can I do that with an iPhone? Maybe I can. However someone’s going to have to come up with a very good migration procedure to get me to move from Android to iPhone. Oh and why would I move from a 4G phone to a 3G one?

    Does anyone know codes to save on getting a business plan with 9 all data plan?

    As an iPad and Evo owner, it is incredibly easy to get your Google contacts from your Evo to a new iPhone. As with my iPad, you sync the contacts to your Google account. I have my iPad, Evo and Outlook all syncing to Google for contacts, notes, and calendar. It’s a beautiful thing…

    I’ve been waiting patiently for Sprint to get the iPhone. Currently, I have a Sanyo Pro700 Sprint phone which has Nextel style direct connect capability via the internet. ( it’s not a Nextel iDen phone but still works with nextel)

    I have been trying to find out if there are any plans for an APP for the iPhone that would allow it to also have the direct connect capability. It seems like it should be since the Sanyo can do it… and the iPhone is far more sophisticated.

    Anyone know anything about this?
