The Sprint/iPhone rumors keep on coming. Recent information has surfaced that a Best Buy employee in Pennsylvania has confirmed that Sprint will be the next iPhone carrier. In his email, the employee claimed that Sprint has “begun to grease the wheels for advertising”.
The employee’s manager apparently said that Apple wants to drop AT&T due to their poor service, but managed to get out of their contract early by giving AT&T the iPad data plan. When asked for evidence, the employee stated that he could not. He did claim that the shelf displays will hit within the next week or two.
While a low-level Best Buy manager would be privy to information like this is unlikely, it is possible that a major ad blitz is in the near future. If Sprint does end up getting the iPhone, Sprint could see a surge in subscribers and a big boost to their reputation
