Sprint reports Q2 2013 numbers, 1.4 million iPhone units sold

Today the earnings circus rolls around to Sprint, where it's their turn to announce some quarterly figures for the period of Q2 2013. Top of the line Sprint posted a pretty sizeable operating loss of $874 million. Of note in regards to the iPhone were mixed results; overall unit sales were down slightly on the previous quarter, but a good percentage of those sold were to new customers.

iPhone sales for Sprint hit 1.4 million for Q2, down around 100,000 units on the previous quarter, but the good news for the carrier is that of that 1.4 million, 41% of those were sold to new customers. Compared to competitors like Verizon, the numbers are pretty slim, but it remains good news for Apple that new customers continue to pick up the iPhone across the major U.S carriers.

Sprint has a conference call scheduled for 8am ET that will be broadcast online for anyone who's interested, just hit the link below. If you recently picked up a Sprint iPhone though, how are you finding it? Happy with the phone? Happy with the carrier? Shout out in the comments below.

Now that nextel crappy network is shut down sprint can compete, that soft bank infusion of money is gonna help alot.. I switched to tmobile thinking the grass was greener but it wasnt alot of 2g and 3g and lte here and there but it was very inconsistant now i can see why tmobile is in 4th and people dont take em seriously

Switched from AT&T, it works just as well and no added charges. I'm in the Midwest and I've had NO connection problems.

None of my Sprint iPhone 5 friends get LTE service in the Los Angeles area, even though Sprint says they turned on the connection there.

I have been with Sprint for over 10 years. I recently moved to Orlando. First, I didn't have service at my new home. After almost 2 months, and being on the phone with them many, many times they finally sent me an Airave, which helped. Unfortunately, the service around Orlando is not good. I've missed a few phone calls due to spotty service. Also, when I did have service (4 bars), I couldn't use the Internet on my iPhone 5. Some pages would finally load after 3-5 minutes, which is unacceptable for me. If I'm on Facebook, it takes forever to update and you might as well forget about checking in somewhere. After living here 4 months, I've decided to move to AT

Apple shipped some iPhone 5 units, to Sprint, that didn't have the proper carrier profile loaded for 3G. These means LTE works fine, but where it's not available, the phone drops into 1xRTT mode. The 3G symbols turns into a "hollow circle" and data speeds slow to a crawl making most Internet based services unusable e.g. maps.
