Sprint Reports “Best Ever Day of Sales” with iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 Launch
Sprint has issued a statement on the first day of iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 sales:
Fared Adib, Sprint Product Chief, issued the following statement:
“Sprint today reported its best ever day of sales in retail, web and telesales for a device family in Sprint history with the launch of iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. We reached this milestone at approximately noon CT/1pm ET. The response to this device by current and new customers has surpassed our expectations and validates our customers’ desire for a truly unlimited data pricing plan.
Sprint started selling the iPhone 4S alongside carriers AT&T and Verizon this morning at 8 am in the United States. Sprint is also selling a new 8 GB version of the iPhone, announced by Apple last week. If pre-orders and lines are of any indication, clearly customers are interested in the new device rather than the cheaper model of the old version – which has been kept around at $99. Last week, Sprint said they were “very pleased” with iPhone 4S pre-orders, which AT&T reported at 200,000 units in the first 12 hours.
Sprint is offering unlimited data plans starting at $79.99, and it’s believed to have struck a $20 billion deal with Apple to sell the iPhone over the next four years.
