Sprint iPhone 4S thread
I didn't see one so I made one. If I missed that there already is one, I apologize and delete the thread but if there is not, then this is the place to report on the performance of your iPhone 4S on the SPRINT NETWORK (not some other carrier). Do you have any issues or problems? Did you get any accessories and how are they working? Apps you are using. Data network performance? Anything related to the iPhone 4S on Sprint. You will all have yours before I get mine on December 1st, so anything you report will be helpful to me and anyone else who is getting theirs later this year.

as a sprint subscriber on a webOS phone that is going to get the 4S I am very interested in how the iPhones performance on sprint network will be. We all know sprints data speeds have been horrendous as of this year, how much worse can they get now that there will be plenty of new iPhones on the network. I know sprint is deploying cdma service on its 800mhz band however only a few phones launched this year have that capability the iphone not being one of them.
anyone know if there is a sprint navigation app in the app store? I know apple doesn't allow carrier bloatware, but anyone with a smartphone on sprint gets the service included for free, and is very useful.
I also wonder how the slower data speeds on sprint might effect the performance of siri....
I hope to hear good reviews from early adopters since I wont be eligible for upgrade until December 1st

Everyone I spoke with was happy with Sprint and said they didn't notice slower speeds than their friends on Verizon...
At least I have 14 days to decide if I'm happy with the service I suppose.

sprints horrendous data speeds have only been something recently as of this year. I wish sprint would address but they don't. Many believe it is due to them completely re doing their entire network, known as the sprint network vision initiative.

When I tested out Sprint with a photon, the data speeds were actually faster with the Photon on Sprint 3G than they were on my work iPhone 3GS, in my area that is. Granted, AT&T is, from my understanding, the most popular carrier here in Northwest Arkansas leaving Sprint's network a bit free(er). Plus, I'm usually on wifi (the nice thing about living on a college campus where wifi is almost everywhere) most of the time, so time to save some $$$ and switch back to sprint and my family's family plan.

The only thing I like about my EVO is the Navigation app and it's turn by turn spoken directions. I'd hope that this sprint TELENAV app would be offered in some capacity for the iPhone 4 and 4S. As soon as anyone knows and/or has them installed and working, please report their performance and any issues. I tend to rely on this app for directions. Google Maps works, but at least on the EVO, it didn't talk.

To the OP, thank you for this and I look forward to hearing other Sprint customers experiences
