“The iPhone 4S will become available to customers of five regional U.S. on April 20,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.
“It will be sold for $50 cheaper than its traditional subsidized price at other carriers, starting at $150 for the 16-gigabyte model, $250 for 32 gigabytes, and $350 for 64 gigabytes,” Marsal reports. “”
The carriers are Alaska Communications, GCI, Appalachian Wireless, Cellcom, and nTelos. Marsal reports, “The announcement of four more wireless partners as an official carrier partner of Apple came on the same day that nTelos Wireless was also revealed. nTelos will also begin selling the iPhone 4S on April 20 to its more than 400,000 subscribers. Apple began expanding availability of the iPhone to smaller, regional carriers last October when a deal with C Spire Wireless was announced. That carrier has about 900,000 customers.”
