Sprint will offer unlimited data on the next iPhone

That is, if the next-generation iPhone offers LTE. Sprint CEO Dan Hesse told CNET that the company is happy to offer unlimited data to its iPhone customers:

“Frankly, it’s a marriage made in heaven. We’re clearly attracting customers from our competitors.”

Indeed. The iPhone was a bright spot in an otherwise dismal first quarter report from Sprint. The company posted a net loss of $863M, yet sold 1.5 million iPhones, the majority of which went to new customers.

I’m currently using AT&T because I’m grandfathered into the unlimited data plan I purchased when the original iPhone was released. I really dislike AT&T and would consider jumping to Sprint if unlimited data is still available when I’m eligible.
