Sprint to discontinue the iPhone 4 in-store, will continue to sell online
Sprint is getting ready to discontinue in-store sales of the iPhone 4 following the launch of the iPhone 5. Leaked internal documents show pricing for the iPhone 5 as well as discounted pricing for the iPhone 4S along with a note about the iPhone 4 being discontinued.
If you were planning on snatching up an iPhone 4 at your local Sprint store, you may have to order it online instead. A Sprint spokesperson confirmed to CNET that stores will no longer carry the device but customers will still be able to order it online.
"iPhone 4 will become a Web only device effective on September 21. We will certainly still be selling it,"
With the iPhone 4S starting at only $99, it will most likely sell very well across all carriers as a better priced option to the new iPhone 5. The leaked documents showed that the iPhone 4 would be removed from planograms as of September 21st. After that date you'll have to order the iPhone 4 online through Sprint. No pricing has been given but we'd assume it would replace the iPhone 3GS as the free iPhone spot as it will on other carriers. The only difference is that you'll have to sign up for service online as opposed to in the store.
