    We are looking to upgrade our our phones to the new 4S. We have decided to go with Sprint. Any advantage or disadvantage buying it from the Sprint Store rather than the Apple Store. We have both within a mile of each other so it's not a big deal either way. Thanks

    Personal opinion: It depends on how much Sprint account work needs to be done. For example, if you're just replacing a phone and nother else, I'd say either one. But if you are changing anything on your Sprint account I say to go Sprint.

    If you have the choice, I'd default to the Apple Store.

    It doesn't matter at all.

    If just buying them, I'd go to the Sprint store. While it's unlikely, they may be able to throw in a few extras for you, a discount on your account, or some type of bonus that the Apple store wouldn't.

    Once you have the phone though, if anything were to ever go wrong with it, you'd be foolish to go to any store other than Apple first.

    I'd go with Apple. I had a hell of a time with Sprint and getting my AppleCare+ added. Not going through them again.

    There's no difference, but I'd rather go to the Apple Store. Just to get the full :apple: experience.
    Plus they'll have a larger selection of overpriced cases then the Sprint store, if you're into overpriced cases :)

    Go to apple if at all possible you will have a much more enjoyable experience.

    Thanks for the feedback. I do like the overprice cases. :)
