There have been rumors speculation that the iPhone will soon be available for Sprint customers. The question then arises: will Sprint keep their unlimited data plans for iPhone users? Sources close to the situation says yes.
For a long time there, AT&T dominated the mobile community. Sure, they claimed to have the largest amount of coverage available, but the real deal breaker was their iron clad contract with Apple. Unlimited data was available at first, but with the networks straining and service being outright terrible most of the time, AT&T decided to change into a tiered data plan. When that contract came to an end with Apple, Verizon swiftly convinced iPhone customers away with a promise of unlimited data and a better network. That lasted a whole four months. You see the pattern?
So Sprint, with their much smaller networks, would not only see a giant strain from these data-hungry iPhone users, but will find out the hard way exactly why AT&T and Verizon stopped offering unlimited data. Sadly, without the promise of unlimited data, iPhone users may be less inclined to switch networks to a much smaller and less dependable network.
