AT&T, Sprint still mum on store traffic

"The majority" of Sprint stores on the US east coast are either low or completely out of iPhone 5s, a spokesperson says. Where phones aren't in stock, the carrier says it's offering a $50 gift card and the chance to reserve a phone from an upcoming shipment. Rivals AT&T and Verizon have yet to comment on store stock, but since Sprint is still the least popular national iPhone carrier, it may mean that the two have far fewer units available.

iPhone 5 sales are so far on track to beat those of the 4S by leaps and bounds. comScore reports that online sales of the iPhone 5 took three days to reach what it took the 4S a month to achieve. At Apple's Fifth Avenue store, meanwhile, some 820 people stood in line this morning, more than double the number that turned out for last year's launch.
