Sprint CEO Calls iPhone Wonderful, But Still Coy on Apple Partnership

Just a day after a report that Verizon is trying to shut T-Mobile and Sprint out of carrying the iPhone, Sprints CEO gave the iPhone its props and answered questions about a possible Apple-Sprint team-up.

Interviewed at the D: Dive Into Mobile conference in San Francisco, Dan Hesse told a crowd that while he cant say” if Sprint will get the iPhone, under the right conditions, yes, [Sprint] would. Its a wonderful phone.”

Hesse also touched on the future of unlimited data plans at Sprint. He got a round of applause for saying that doing away with unlimited plans was not on the carriers agenda; however, he didnt totally rule it out. Verizon Wireless and AT&T both adopted tiered plans earlier this year to help deal with increased traffic on their networks.
