It’s no surprise that the iPhone has the capability to move units and Sprint got to experience it for the first time today. As you all know by now, Sprint has been left out of the iPhone party over the past few years, due to AT&T’s exclusivity deal which only ended earlier this year. Verizon was the second carrier in the US to pick it up, and with the launch of the iPhone 4S, Sprint joined the party. And it looks like it only took a few hours to reach its milestone for best ever day of sales for a device family. Here’s what the carrier just announced:
“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.”
It looks like they made a good decision in picking up the iPhone this year. Now the only major carrier that has yet to pick up the iPhone will be T-Mobile (even though people have been using T-Mobile iPhones on 2G for some time now). How many of you bought an iPhone on Sprint today?
