Why do I keep hearing

Customers come up and tell me they heard the iphone is coming to Sprint? Please no. I will hate my life if it does because I will once again hear only Iphone this Iphone that. Who cares about that phone.

Plus I already know if we sell that apple won't pay jack crap on commission and it won't even count as a box.

Our At&t stores sell it and they don't make crap. The Verizon next to me sells it and they hate it because they don't get paid crap either.

What is the big deal with this phone I do not understand!!!

I love what I get paid, I am more worried about how much I am going to get paid for selling that product. I just don't understand the infatuation with that phone. The wonders of the world I guess.

Listen, it's not easy for us to sell every phone on sprint. Do you understand HOW EASY it is to sell an iphone?

Customer: what kinds of smart phones do you have?

us: Well we have about 18 different android phones and the iphone as well as some bla-

Customer: iPhone. i want the iPhone!

So when the customer walks in, I will now be saying "Welcome to Sprint, we have some great car chargers and cases for your new Iphone. How many would you like?"

I will just be an order taker.

Oh well , at least I have a job.

The Iphone will help Sprint a lot.
At least at verizon, we can talk a majority of our customers out of any apple product. Mainly because of the commission we DON'T make off of apple products..
I can fight against apple because I had the Iphone and enjoy my Incredible 2 a whole lot more..

But like I said.. I'm pretty sure the Iphone will help Sprint greatly.

It's all just rumors until Steve announces it. Even if Apple and Sprint are considering it, no decision is final until it's actually announced. That's how the industry works, and it's especially true with Apple.

With that said, when the CDMA iPhone was announced for Verizon, they did make it clear that there was no exclusive in that relationship. That doesn't mean it is coming to Sprint, but Apple certainly left the door open to that possibility.

Obviously they care...If you don't want to hear it, you should probably go work somewhere that doesn't have to deal with anything about cell phones..

I love my job, why would I leave?

I just don't fancy that phone, and I like them money I make on all the phones I sell. Why would I want to make less? It's like asking you if you want a pay cut.

the latest news is that sprint will sell both the iphone 4 and iphone 5 in october. this is according to the wall street journal. so this is big news. sprint employees have been told to say no comment on any speculation as to whether or not sprint will sell it. make up uyour own mind on what that means.

My buddy has a friend that knows a guy that works for Sprint and he said that the iphone is indeed coming to Sprint, but to remind everyone that the iphone 5 has not been released by APPLE so they will not be getting that model. They will be getting the iphone 4s and iphone 4 though.

Yeah, well my brother's friend has a sister who's baby-daddy is 1/2 cousins with a friend of an old boss's momma whose cat was owned by a lady who works next door to someone who used to work for Sprint who heard thru the grapevine that the iPhone was coming soon....

I can't stand that the news is reporting it and apple and sprint didn't even announce it that early. Only did they announce it yesterday. I had several customers tell me we were getting it and when I told them we are unsure they would pretty much tell me im retarded and they believe everything on the news.

What is the iphone other than the APPLE symbol on the back of the device, that is what is making it sell. I can almost guarantee that if we were to place that dumb APPLE on the back of any other phome we would not be able to keep said phone on the shelves. Every mobile company has at least one device that is exactly the same as the iphone regarding the capabilities of the device that sell at much cheaper prices. So in actuallity what are people paying for when they buy the iphone? Answer: the APPLE on the back of the device.

That may be true, but it is a nice looking logo, listen all you trollers and fanboys, the fact is that all phones have their shining star and dirty poop spot. In most things the iphone does fail in capabilities, but most people want something that they dont have to think about, the iphone provides them that, a stupid phone for stupid people. those of us that dont live under a rock and dont smoke the jobs hash actually realize that with minimal effort can purchase a device with richer more free features that is on average half as expensive, did we mention that you dont have to go to one location if your having issues with your device.....i know there is more, but i know the flames will already ensue from this rant, have a nice day.
