Lucky is right! Several local Sprint stores in my area not only sold out of all their 4s models in about 15 minutes, but they've moved a ton of regular iPhone 4 models too, mostly to folks who couldn't get the 4s but needed instant gratification. We Sprint users have peen pining for the iPhone for a long time.

I read somewhere that RadioShack is also selling them and that some RS stores had a few left. I headed to my local RS and asked, but the salesman's response was baffling. He insisted that Sprint has not released the iPhone 4S. Only the regular iPhone 4. "Sprint is waiting for the iPhone 5. The 4S is only on AT&T." I didn't say another word. I just turned and walked out. I could have told him to look on either Apple's or Sprint's web site (or Verizon's), but why even bother? I'm never going back there.

And it's a 16GB at that... I assume those are next to impossible to find...

Some guy came in 5 minutes after me to get the other and he said he had called every store in the City, in LA, and in Fresno with no luck....

Back on the topic of iOS5...

The more I play with it, the more I like it...

The new notifications (Android style) are awesome! I am diggin iCloud and if you have not noticed you can now access all your apps via app store... In addition you can select all or not installed on this device... NICE! You can also hide any app you don't want to see by swiping and select hide....

I know it's suppose to use the camera flash on the back but I can't get it to work....

Any ideas or does it only work with specific apps? I don't / am not getting the led flash for email, messages, missed calls ect....

It should be coming in for those items. I don't use it anymore as I keep my phone in a leather sleeve, but it came on for e-mails, messages, and calls.

Are you saying you think the iOS 5 is a iPOS 5?

I was wondering about the LED.. Haven't turned it on yet. Does it suck up battery life? I'm digging iOS5. It was just the breath of fresh air the iPhones needed.

Did I mention I love iphones?

I found it to be somewhat useless unless your iPhone is upside down on a table, which is a rare occasion for me. It's either in my pocket or face up on a table.

I really can't understand why Apple has yet to put an LED on the front...

If you read the biography about Steve Jobs you realize that he did not want to follow fashion even when it made sense. It will be interesting to see if the new leaders at Apple take a different approach.

Yes, but on just about every other Apple product, the way things are done just makes sense and just works.

Man, that's because Apple knows that their own users really want. Maybe not what users of Microsoft or Linux really want, but they take heed of their customers and how they work. The probably have the best target audience research and whatnot in the market.

Why did you bump this thread? Are you here to troll with your 7100t on Sprint?
