We are still being kept in-the-dark regarding when the next-gen Apple iPhone will arrive, also we are still unsure as to whether it will be called the iPhone 5, iPhone 4G, iPhone 4S or something else, therefore we thought we would instead get some feedback from our readers regarding U.S. carriers.
Lots of rumors have been circulating which suggest that the 5th-gen iPhone release will see all major U.S. carriers launch Apple’s next smartphone on the same date – we assume that it will offer 4G connectivity, therefore we thought we would see who you guys will choose.
Obviously AT&T and Verizon are probably the most popular choices, however what about Sprint and T-Mobile USA? We recently heard that T-Mobile’s merger with AT&T was being opposed by the U.S. government, so for now let’s assume that carriers stay as they are – will people still be most interested in Verizon Wireless and the impressive speeds and coverage offered by its 4G LTE network? Will customers stay loyal to AT&T? Or will consumers be tempted by Sprint’s reasonable prices and 4G network?
Let’s not forget that rumors are rumors and we may not even see the 5th-gen iPhone will hit all carriers simultaneously – seeing as how Verizon and AT&T versions of the iPad 2 were offered upon launch we think that it is certain that these carriers will definitely get the iPhone 5 (or whatever it is called) upon launch, would you wait for a different carrier? We would love to hear your opinions.
Below we have added a simple poll to gain some feedback from our readers, obviously this is aimed toward our U.S. readers, if you are from a different region feel free to add a comment with your carrier of choice below.
