Dan Hesse, Sprint’s CEO, went on record this summer citing the absence of the iPhone from its list of offered devices as being the number one reason why Sprint was losing customers.
Fast forward to October 14th, launch day for the iPhone 4S. Here’s what Fared Adib, Sprint Product Chief, had to say in a press release:
“Sprint today reported its best ever day of sales in retail, web and telesales for a device family in Sprint history with the launch of iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. We reached this milestone at approximately noon CT/1pm ET. The response to this device by current and new customers has surpassed our expectations and validates our customers’ desire for a truly unlimited data pricing plan.”
