Sprint to Get iPhone 5

Sprint Nextel Corp. will begin selling the new version of the Apple iPhone in mid-October, people familiar with the matter said, filling a huge hole in the No. 3 U.S. carrier's lineup and giving Apple Inc. another sales channel for its popular gadget. Many sources have said that Sprint will begin to sell the iPhone in October. Me as a Sprint user, hearing of this excites me greatly. Sprint iPhone 5 will get unlimited data plan. This may separate the competition between AT&T and Verizon, because these carriers do not offer an unlimited data plan with the iPhone. I think that many people will switch from AT&T and Verizon to Sprint, mainly because Sprint will offer unlimited data one, and that Sprint has much cheaper data plans. The competition will rise between these companies and many people will be switching to these companies, because almost everyone wants an iPhone. Then the other carriers that don’t carry the iPhone will be left behind. Right now the top three phone carriers are AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. With Verizon at number one, AT&T at number two, and Sprint at three. I think that Sprint will move up to number one with the release of the new iPhone, because Sprint will offer the cheapest plan with the iPhone.

The new iPhone made so many people wait for so long. The new system is really cool, so lots of people will get it. Actually, there are already so many people pre-ordered them on line. If Sprint carries iPhone with a better and cheaper plan,people would more likely to get iPhone from Sprint. It increases the competition among the three companies. Because consumers like to get good products with better prices. When people start going to Sprint, would AT&T or Verizon have better plans for consumers?Or would they just stay? Just like Adam Smith believed that the free market would drive a better economy. If the competition is a perfect competition, the economy will get better.
