Sprint iPhone

AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint will all sell the iPhone 5, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. Todays WSJ’s report continues to specify a “mid-October” release date for the iPhone 5 on all carriers, which is contrary to the Reuters exclusive from earlier today which said late September.

Adding Sprint to the mix means that, if the T-Mobile & AT&T merger goes through, every major cellular carrier in the USA will offer the iPhone on their networks. Sprint is a CDMA network much like Verizon, and is the 3rd largest cell provider in the United States.
