The Sprint iPhone 4S will be available on October 14th, and brings a better camera, the assistant app Siri, a faster processor and several new features.
You can order the Sprint iPhone 4 for $99 today for $99. the off contract price is listed at $549, but you don’t appear to have that option of ordering just yet. The Sprint iPhone 4 is available in black and white, and has 8GB of memory to keep your apps, photos and media.
Sprint is the only carrier that still allows new customers to purchase an unlimited data plan, which gives the smaller carrier an edge for new iPhone buyers.
