Since I won't be able to upgrade until April. I will be very interested in how everyone fares. I've rooted the EVO I have so the tether is a non issue for me at the moment. When I get the iPhone5 next year have to remember to jailbreak it for this. Besides by then LTE will be out on Sprint and I like Wimax for now.

Going to be a new Sprint customer when my 4S arrives in the mail. Hearing good things about the coverage in my area but anything has to be better than my AT&T experience.
Although I do agree this thread could be useful for now, hopefully Rene or another administrator makes a separate Sprint forum soon.
Edit: Oh, it exists! lol

There are NO Sprint apps, including navigation, on the iPhone! Apple doesn't allow it and it was listed on the details page of the Sprint site.
You'll have to use the app store and will not be able to bill them to your Sprint account, anymore, either.
That said, I preordered and already have my tracking number, so I'll post with updates, after my 4S arrives.

I'm all for no carrier bloatware on the iphone, i had to use preware patches to get sprints bloatware off my webOS phone. But I do hope sprint will have some apps available on the app store for sprint iphones, especially being sprint navigation .
I have heard that on Verizon iPhones you can download VZ navigator from the app store, can anyone confirm this. If true sprint should be able to do the same thing.

I can see the positives and negatives for the elimination of carrier apps. There are some that I do like and use and they are free. It would add up really fast if I have to buy them. With Android, I simply root and get rid of what I don't want. If I have to pay for something as basic as Navigation that would really stink. Are there any decent free apps at all? Lol, I guess Android is the Poor Man's iPhone. Sure, some of the devices may initially cost the same but with all the free apps you can literally get anything you want by just putting up with a few ads (or rooting and installing Addblocker).
I will just have to check out my son's iPhone when he gets it, whether that is Friday or closer to Christmas, and just see what it is all about.

I request that this thread that I created by moved to the Sprint forum, if that hasn't already been done. It is an iPhone 4S thread but completely about the Sprint version of the phone, so that should be appropriate, I think?
Found this in the iPhone App Store:
GPS by TeleNav for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G on the iTunes App Store
So there IS TELENAV for the iPhone 4S. It doesn't come pre-installed but can be downloaded from the App store.

Order Status - Tracking
I'm currently on the phone with Sprint and the lady said that our shipments are on the way to the UPS facilities right now, and the tracking information will be updated tomorrow morning! Then we will know which day to expect our phones. Kind of made me excited all over again because I had started to worry! Thats the most information I've seen/heard since I ordered on the 7th. I take this as good news for all of us!

I just checked my order number, and I do have a tracking number for UPS. But it's not on their website. Not unusual since the shipper can generate the number themselves, and UPS won't be aware of it till it's in their system. One thing I noticed is that the first part of my tracking number is: DM14. I wonder if that means "Deliver Merchandise on the 14th". Does anyone else have a similiar one?

I reckon since I won the contest, I'll be getting that thar lovely white iPhone before Sprint gives me that $150 discount in December. YEEEEE_HAAAAAAA!!!!!
And now back to the Sprint iPhone thread.....
3G coverage all over Atlanta has been good with my EVO, even in places like Fairburn, where the AT&T signal would randomly drop. Anyone else here in the Atlanta area? If so, let's also report dropped call rates and data coverage in the Atlanta area.
