iPhone 5 Rumor: Release Date Should Not Be Discussed Says Sprint
[ Technology]

The first rule of working for a company who’s getting the iPhone 5 is don’t talk about the iPhone 5.

Sprint employees are being told to keep their mouths shut when it comes to the speculated release of the iPhone 5. SprintFeed obtained an internal memo addressed to “All Dealers” that advises employee to refrain from speculating about the much-anticipated phone coming to Sprint.

The memo says “A recent Wall Street Journal article mentioned that Sprint is getting the iPhone 5. If you’re asked by a customer or just talking to friend or family members, you need to avoid making any comment about the iPhone 5 and simply state “no comment.”

It goes on to give employees another response options when asked about the iPhone 5. Here’s a screencap of the memo –

Last week, we told you about those reports that Sprint will be selling the iPhone 5 sometime in mid-October.

The latest release date rumors have the iPhone 5 arriving sometime in September or October. The very latest has a specific date of October 7th, and this internal memo from Sprint just adds fuel to that fire.

This is not the first information that’s been leaked from a carrier about the iPhone 5. Earlier this month, it was reported that an AT&T Vice President was telling certain employees that the iPhone 5 was on its way in October.

“Expect things to get really really bust in the next 35-50 days – so prepare your teams accordingly,” he supposedly said.

If the iPhone 5 does in fact come to Sprint, it would be huge for both parties involved. It would also mean that all three main carriers would offer the device.
