East Coast Sprint iPhone Inventories are "Seriously Constrained"

Sprint-branded retail stores on the East Coast are nearly sold out of iPhone 5 inventory, according to a Sprint statement provided to AllThingsD. iPhone sales have been robust at most locations this morning, with some customers who placed pre-orders at Best Buy being told they may not get phones for weeks.
"At this time, the majority of East Coast Sprint-branded retail stores are seriously constrained or sold out of iPhone 5 inventory provided to us by Apple," the carrier said. "Our stores will be resupplied as soon as additional devices are received from Apple."

If the Sprint customers think they are bummed now, wait until they get their phones activated.

I got in line at Sprint this morning around 5:00 and was 6th in line. By 7:30 the line was about 45 people long. At 7:30 the manager comes out to say that got about 30 phones in stock and that nobody should expect to get the phone they want. People were not happy with Sprint...


Not sure how it's Sprint's fault here. They only got X amount of phones...end of story.

This is a sign for customers to Sprint the hell away from this ridiculously terrible company.

Not only do they do NOT have

-LTE coverage (false, they do have LTE)
-Plans to get LTE coverage to a majority of large US cities in the near future. (false, they are expanding into over 100 cities within a few months http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/10/sprint-announces-huge-lte-expansion-in-coming-months-adds-new/)
-Good enough 3G speed (.06 up .01 down on 4S...WHAT THE FFFF?!) (false, user error)

They also have

-dbags employees (this applies to all carriers except tmobile)

You get what you pay for folks!
