Sprint CEO Cuts Pay to Reflect Cost of iPhone
Sprint CEO Dan Hesse has agreed to pay cuts in order to appease shareholders disappointed with the costs to Sprint for adopting Apple's iPhone.

Sprint has taken on costs as high as $15 billion, which will be spread over several years, in order to sell the iPhone. The costs have impacted Sprint's financial performance in the market.
