Three regional US carriers to get Apple’s iPhone 4S on May 18

“Apple continues to ink deals with smaller regional carriers in the U.S., as Kentucky’s Bluegrass Cellular, California’s Golden State Cellular, and Kansas’ Nex-Tech Wireless will begin offering the iPhone 4S on May 18,” AppleInsider reports.

“The iPhone 4S will be available starting at $149 for the 16-gigabyte model, $249 for the 32-gigabyte model, and $349 for the 64-gigabyte capacity. Those prices are $50 cheaper than with the three major carriers in the U.S.,” AppleInsider reports. “In addition, all three carriers will also offer Apple’s previous-generation 8-gigabyte iPhone 4 for $49. Customers can pre-register for their purchase today.”

AppleInsider reports, “The three carriers’ networks are based on the same CDMA wireless standard used by major U.S. carriers Verizon and Sprint. Bluegrass Cellular is headquartered in Elizabethtown, Ken., Golden State Cellular is based out of Jamestown, Calif., and Nex-Tech operates out of Hays, Kan.”

  1. Wow. 3 more carriers offering the same 1980’s, bassackwards technology as Verizon? No Thanks!
    I mean, be for real. I’d have to hang up on a customer in order to collaborate with him about his website while I’m on the road?
    How quaint. CDMA carriers should include a mule, a wagon and a buggy whip along with their phones.

      Bullshit!

      What kind of web salesman doesn’t have a laptop, or other means to access the web other than a phone? Someone like you, who professes to work on websites AND travels, couldn’t find a way to browse and talk at the same time over CDMA? Are you that stupid?
