Sprint CEO Dan Hesse has been put in the spotlight recently, and one of the many questions that has been asked of him is whether or not it was really a good idea to buy billions of dollars worth of iPhones ahead of time.

Not only does the iPhone attract more customers than Android devices, but it also buys Sprint a relationship with Apple that will be useful down the road.
