I don't think it's gonna happen. Well, maybe Sprint would really bet its entire future in this iPhone 5, but for Apple's point of view this is a bad deal.
Why? Because how many Sprint subscribers could meet the iPhone5's sales target? And when you are hoping the subscribers would change to Sprint? hmmm... not likely all ppl wld do that.
Not to mention that this is a crucial time for post-Job-Apple period so I think Apple's gonna open his business as wide as possible to get the maximum buyer.

So unless Apple strike some sort of deal that iCloud service is unlimited (like some do with Social Networking), I'm afraid it won't take off.
Only when I can be assured 100% that the service won't cost me extra, no matter what plan I'm on, will I use it.
And of course, that's where most providers would rake in their money - overage pricing is really expensive still, and something like iCloud would simply fuel the fire. The mess this would create would bring the service to a crippling halt.
Sprint are the only one with unlimited data i think that's the main reason for sprint to have exclusivity. In icoud everything will be store in the could you need to internet.

Vodafone and Telstra have certainly put out teasers, and you'd expect something better than a 4S, going by the hype that has been created.
And don't get me wrong, a beefed up 4S would still be great, but not worth me buying if a '5' is just around the corner.
And they better not dare releasing the 5 for Sprint, and let the rest of the world wait until next year.
That would be so funny if it is true. Srpint does need this tho. They have been getting good phones but people are crazy about the iphone and they know folks will just which over just for that phone.
apple employees have just waked up to prepare to go to the job. iphone5 is awake too,waiting to be introduced
harlekkin, 04 Oct 2011Oh for the love of it, can you guys just for once stop commenting about your SG2, how is it ev... moreIt's ok, let them. They need to comfort themselves after all lol. You would think that having an SGS2 would make them satisfied right? Yet they visit every iPhone article, the insecurity certainly shows.
I for one, am very excited about the possibilities in just 4.5 hours. iPhone 4S or iPhone 5, looking forward to it!
If some1 willing to bet 3million dollar all in with all the chips n his 2010 tundra car saying ima win this game ... Now we all know he got a good hand in order to bet his life on the line. in this case no 1 in the table will ever bet wih him unless they got the high ace spade with king or both spade ace n king :)
[deleted post]Oh for the love of it, can you guys just for once stop commenting about your SG2, how is it even related to this subject?
Give it a break! The mods should seriously just remove any post that is clearly off-topic and stirring crap.
ipod touch + phone features = iphone 5
My Ipod touch can be mistaken as a iphone 5..how cool is that.
i don't think so ... what will happen next year or two years from now, when iphone6 will come out? who will buy 2 years old phone then?? not to mention that in 4 years iphone5 will be antique like t-rex ;)
i hope they are going to announce it or else its gona be a shame to apple and that means they will never beat samsung galaxy s 2
Sounds like BS. The iPhone 5 will be released globally eventually. No Euro carrier has Wimax. Maybe there will be a wimax version for sprint. But the phone will not be sprint exclusive. Thats silly.
