iPhone 5 On Sprint Network In Mid October!

Sprint iPhone 5
Rumor has it that some of the 52 million strong Sprint customers will be able to get hold of an Apple iPhone that works on their network. WSJ reported that it has received news from reliable sources that the No. 3 carrier will get the iPhone and Apple will have another sales outlet for it's iPhone 5 line up.
While this is good news, it also indicates that the iPhone 5 will be delayed some what, later than the expected September release. It is a delay that will affect waiting users as well as big boys on the wall street as iPhone 5, will hit the market later than expected and too late to contribute to sales in Apple's fiscal fourth quarter, which ends in September. This also confirmes our earlier iPhone 5 rumor that it will arrive in October.
We too are considering ditching AT&T and taking a ride on another carrier with unlimited data and the likelihood of going with Sprint now much larger, as some of our colleagues are true iPhone iPad fans.

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.
