A new Apple job posting suggests that the company may be planning to offer a version of the iPhone on Sprint. Stop it, AT&T reports on a new job posting for a Carrier Engineer based in Kansas City, MO, who would be part of a team “that supports taking products through technical approval at the carriers.” As noted in the report, Sprint’s headquarters in in Overland Park, KS, a suburb of Kansas City. Interestingly, the posting in question has since been changed to list Cupertino as the job location; it is possible, although unlikely, that Kansas City was listed by mistake. [via Mac Rumors]

Uh, just DO IT STEVE JOBS!!!! I am so bummed to have a great carrier with crappy devices.  Why does it have to be such a big dea?  I want a dang iPhone and I dont want to leave Sprint.  Handle it, please.

For the record, the EVO phone is just pathetic. Its junk.

While I’m glad to see that Sprint could get the iPhone, count me in as a customer that doesn’t care anymore. I have a Blackberry that fulfills my voice and data needs for the most part and an iPod touch for the rest. I do wonder how a Sprint iPhone would handle data since I have found that 3G data is slow to nonexistent in places.
