Leaked document shows Apple will match Sprint's $149.99 contract price for Apple iPhone 4S
which cut $50 off the price of the Apple iPhone 4S to $149.99 with your John Hancock on a 2-year pact. Additionally, the carrier also decided to waive the $36 activation fee, bringing your total savings to $86. If a leaked document is legit, Apple has decided to match the price at Apple Stores. There is one small caveat: you need to ask the rep to match Sprint's price. This has the advantage of allowing Apple to keep advertising the old $199.99 contract price while still allowing those in the know (like Phone Arena readers) to grab the discount.
Besides the 16GB model, Apple Store visitors can ask for price matching on the 32GB unit ($249.99) and the 64GB version ($349.99) That is a savings of $49.01 from the listed price for each model. And since the price matching applies only to Sprint at the moment, the discount will be only for the Sprint branded variant of the Apple iPhone 4S.
