According to a recent report, Sprint may drop the iPhone 4. What does this mean? No free iPhone under Sprint.
During last week’s media event, Apple executives announced that the iPhone 4 would drop to the low, low price of free with a two-year contract. This, according to reports, would mean that there is no free iPhone with an unlimited plan available.
Here’s a portion of 9to5Mac’s report:
Perhaps Sprint feels it cannot afford to offer the device at $0 on a contract. There is a possibility the carrier will move the iPhone 4 to a Virgin-only prepaid offering, which we expect would bump the cost of the device close to the $399 price point. The device currently sells for $549 on Sprint, but that price has yet to come down following the iPhone 5 launch.
