Sprint’s iPhone 4 will only be available online starting Friday

Following its announcement of the iPhone 5, Apple (AAPL) revealed that the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 will continue to be available at discounted prices. The iPhone 4S will be available for $99 with a new two-year agreement and the iPhone 4 will be offered for free on-contract, replacing the iPhone 3GS. 9To5Mac on Monday published a leaked Sprint (S) document suggesting that the carrier might discontinue the iPhone 4 following the launch of Apple’s new iPhone 5, but BGR has learned that this is not the case. A Sprint spokesperson confirmed via email that while Sprint will stop selling the iPhone 4 in its retail stores beginning this Friday, the carrier will continue to offer the iPhone 4 online through its website.Related stories Sprint CEO defends company’s decision to bet it all on Apple’s iPhone iPhone 4S best-selling phone at three top U.S. carriers in November, Samsung sales strong iPhone 4S now No.1 smartphone at top-3 U.S. carriers, iPhone 4 still hot
