Summary Box : Sprint customers line up for iPhone

FIRST TIMER: Although Apple stores got the longest lines as the new iPhone model launched, there were lines at Sprint stores too. The carrier got a chance to sell the phone more than four years after the first model was launched.

RECORDS BROKEN: The company says sales were above its expectations, though it didn’t give any figures.

COSTLY SUCCESS: Sprint will be paying a lot of money to put iPhones in customer hands: It’s subsidizing each iPhone 4S by about $400 to get it down to the $200 price for the 16 gigabyte version.
