Sprint joined Verizon and AT&T last year when it came on board the iPhone train. Since then though, the third largest carrier has had to explain numerous times to investors about their costly $15.5 billion gamble.
Sprint CEO: Profits won’t kick in with iPhone 5
Earlier this week, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse stated that the company was “very happy” with the deal and that the iPhone would be “quite profitable” for Sprint, suggesting that they didn’t just add the Apple phone in order to keep up with the Joneses.
However Hesse went on and clarified his statement by saying that Apple’s iPhone won’t pay off until 2015 i.e. not so immediate like the iPhone 5 but when one would expect the iPhone 8 to launch.
Speaking to AllThingsD, the Sprint CEO stated that “we believe in the long term and over time we will make more money on iPhone customers than we will on other customers.” It is good to see that Sprint believes the iPhone will continue to remain a popular and hotselling device right up until the iPhone 8.
