Sprint Tells Employees to Keep Quiet About the iPhone

Sprint wants its employees to plead the fifth when it comes to the iPhone 5. An internal memo leaked to Sprint Feed, instructs Sprint employees to offer no comment when approached about the possibility they will be offering the iPhone in October. Last week, the Wall Street Journal announced that Sprint would be joining AT&T and Verizon as an iPhone carrier.

The memo instructs employees to tell customers they have no “information to share,” and advises them to direct curious iPhone seekers to Sprint’s Newsroom for the latest information. Does this mean an announcement from Sprint is coming soon?

MacTrast also received a tip about T-Mobile joining the Apple team last week. If the rumors turn out to be true, the iPhone 5 will be available on all four major US carriers in October, or whenever it’s officially launched.
