Radio Shack now offering the Sprint version of the 16GB Apple iPhone 4S
Just in time for the holiday season, a leaked internal memo from Radio Shack shows that the retailer plans on offering the 16GB Sprint version of the Apple iPhone 4S. The Shack will offer the phone in both black and white for the price of $199.99 with a signed 2-year contract. Some stores might already have the phone in stock. The memo exhorts Shack reps to push Sprint's unlimited data plan, which is the only way to get a new plan for the iPhone with truly unlimited service.

The 16GB Sprint Apple iPhone 4S will be found at Radio Shack stores that currently offer Apple's touchscreen device while those that don't offer the device can have it ordered. The Sprint 8GB Apple iPhone 4 has been available through Radio Shack since the store started selling the Verizon and AT&T models of the Apple iPhone 4S last month and alerted Sprint customers at the time that the 16GB version of the iPhone 4S for Sprint was coming. Those seeking the 32GB or 64GB models of the phone will need to look elsewhere.

Do not get an iphone4 with Sprint - yeah unlimited data with very limited speeds - 4S is good with Verizon 4S and even better for data, not voice, on AT&T. Of course, if you want speed get a Verizon or AT&T 4G LTE phone.

Why go to radio shack? Same price as apple or corp retail store, no benefit here. Likely just a reduction in service and set up of the device. Sprint is the worst network for iPhone anyhow, I'd rather have it on AT&T. And AT&T stinks too. Go get yourself a nice droid.

No waiting in line. No benefit with the iPhone, but generally they have lower prices and no mail-in rebates like the carrier stores. And a lot of people (possibly the majority) don't like to order online.

Get a Verizon LTE phone. More coverage and more choices. Plus right now they doubLe your data pack to 4gb for no extra cost. Total win.

I ended up getting the RAZR, but had planned on getting a 4S (I know 3 people with the 4S and none of them are getting more than 20 hours so I went with the RAZR)
I had planned on getting it from the Apple store directly, because I've heard if you need warranty support it is a LOT easier if you buy it from the Apple Store.
When the iPhone 5 comes out, I'll be there (Hope it looks like an advanced iTouch!, like the model that Steve Jobs ALLEGEDLY axed)
I have Verizon, and played with my bosses iPhone 4 and on Verizon it works beautifully, streamed a movie from Netflix on 3G with no problems (It looked great too), and that is one of the biggest bandwidth hogs I know of so....

Apple is finding ways to advertise their products. No doubt Apple Is Scared Of Android. Go Andro
