Apple iPhone 4S Goes For Sale By Sprint With An Unlimited Data Plan

Apple iPhone 4S Goes For Sale By Sprint

As promised earlier in the iPhone 4S & iOS 5 key note, Apple has started offering the pre-orders for the iPhone 4S since last week and today, on October 14th, the handset is available to purchase through on of the three major US carriers, Sprint. Sprint is offering the iPhone 4S with an unlimited iPhone 4S data plan. Sprint is the only one with an unlimited iPhone 4S data plan. So, if you’d like to not worry about hitting overage charges for your iPhone data expenditure, Sprint will be your only ultimate choice

The new iPhone 4S comes equipped with a faster, dual-core A5 chip (the same that has been ticking in the iPad 2), and a brand new 8 megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture lens and back-illuminated sensor for better low light sensitivity and is supposedly 33% more responsive than the old iPhone 4 sensor. Moreover, with the new sensor of 8MP camera and the A5 processor, the phone can now record 1080p video. Download speeds are going up, thanks to support for HSPA+ 14.4Mbps downloads. But, unfortunately, iPhone 4S won’t be using Sprint’s WiMax network, so it won’t be a 4G device and thus will be fixed 3G EVDO speeds.

According to some trusted sources, Sprint branded iPhone 4S won’t be having an unlocked SIM slot and will instead support GSM roaming when abroad. In another news, Sprint also explains iPhone 4S unlocking policy.

“Sprint’s policy is to have the iPhone 4S SIM locked to our network domestically and internationally. At launch, the International SIM will be unlocked. We do expect a SIM lock to be pushed to the devices shortly after launch. We will then allow existing customers in good standing to unlock the SIM for international use if needed in the future.”


Apple iPhone 4S goes for $199.99 for 16GB, $299.99 for 32GB, and $399.99 for the new 64GB variant. Sprint users will be able to pick a $69.99 per month plan that includes unlimited data, 450 minutes and a $99.99 per month plan that features unlimited calling and data or unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling. Please note that the hotspot feature will be limited to 5 GB per month.
