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.

They actually had 10,000 more phones but the driver delivering them used Apple maps and got lost......

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.
