iPhone 4S pre-orders sold out, Apple orders more

Despite not being the more dramatic iPhone 5 revamp, the iPhone 4S isn't doing too shabby.

Verizon iPhone 4S SIM unlock rules clarified as Sprint reports total lockdown

When the first iPhone 4S story was written here on SlashGear announcing said device, it was entitled iPhone 4S World Phone revealed - as it turns out, that doesn't mean the same thing to all carriers here in the United States.

iPhone 4S data speeds to be faster on AT&T

If you're considering the iPhone 4S, you now have three of the four major US carriers to choose from, with the nation's third largest being added to the mix that currently includes AT&T and Verizon. Since the iPhone 4S is now a dual-band world phone, the same model will be available to all three carriers, making the choice more a matter of network preference.

iPhone 5 may cause Sprint to bet the farm

If there's one measure of a device's popularity and success, it's the willingness of a single company to bet their entire livelihood on future sales. That's quite possibly what's happening right this second behind the scenes at Sprint, where the 3rd largest mobile carrier in America appears to be making a multibillion dollar deal with Apple which will score them an exclusive deal with the iPhone 5. Sound like a possibility? Would Apple be swayed by $20 billion dollars from the pockets of Sprint, a deal that wouldn't even have Sprint breaking even until 2014? We shall see!

Sprint LTE rollout tipped for early 2012

Sprint LTE rollout tipped for early 2012

Sprint took a big risk when it chose existing WiMax tech for its 4G networks. The hope was that the WiMax networks would already be widely available before the roll out of LTE started giving Sprint a leg up in the 4G race. That leg up never happened and LTE and WiMax are now fighting on even footing in many markets. Sprint had announced a while back that it was looking at rolling out its own LTE networks along with WiMax tech.
