Following on today's fresh claims of Sprint launching the iPhone 5 by "mid-October", reportedly with unlimited data plans, Sprintfeed now shares a purported internal Sprint memo for employees noting that vacations have been blacked out for the period beginning September 30th and extending through October 15th.
Due to the possibility of a major phone launch in October we are blacking out September 30th through October 15th.
While the memo does not specifically mention the iPhone and describes the launch as only a "possibility", it does line up nicely with the claimed iPhone 5 launch.
Apple has traditionally launched new iPhone models on Thursdays or Fridays, making October 13th or 14th the closest likely dates to the rumored mid-October timeframe. That timeframe would be pushing the end of Sprint's blackout window, however, as customer demand would be expected to remain high for several days after launch. Other rumors have also suggested that the debut could come the prior week on October 6th or 7th.

Yeah, the big 4-0 for me on the 13th!
Mines Friday, Oct. 14th and that's when it's going to be released to E'RYBODY! :D
EDIT: Just to encourage repetitiveness, I have just this to say regarding the watermarked photo: That logo is a watermark. Thank you.
EDIT2: I will say this though: The placement of the watermark is rather unconventional. Generally it's placed quietly in a corner or something rather than smack in the middle of the image like that. Its placement also makes it look like it may actually belong to the image (I know it doesn't, calm down). It is understandable. I never heard of the site either, and the name is something that would fit an internal "Sprint Feed", so...
