Apple iPhone 4S

Last month we learned that C Spire Wireless would become the fourth carrier to offer the iPhone 4S here in the U.S., and now the folks at C Spire have spilled the beans on 4S availability. Apple's new smartphone will go on sale at C Spire on Friday, November 11th with with the same on-contract pricing that we've seen on the other operators so far: $199/16GB, $299/32GB, $399/64GB. C Spire will also offer an 8GB iPhone 4 for $99.99 with a two-year commitment. Pre-registration for all devices starts today and can be found here. As far as plans go, iPhone-toting customers will have four different options to choose from:

  • $50 per month for 500 minutes, unlimited text, and unlimited data with no streaming
  • $70 per month for unlimited minutes, texting, and non-streaming data
  • $90 per month for 1,000 minutes, unlimited text, unlimited data (streaming included)
  • $100 per month for unlimited talk, text, and data (streaming included)

Although C Spire's iPhone 4S launch is coming almost a month after AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon's releases, the carrier formerly known as Cellular South could be the way to go for folks that don't yet have an iPhone and live in its coverage area, which includes quite a few major areas in the southern U.S. such as Memphis, the Florida Panhandle, Mississippi, and parts of Alabama. Not only does C Spire's plans included unlimited data — something that AT&T and Verizon no longer offer — but the monthly charge gets even cheaper for customers that don't do any kind of music or video streaming. The full PR from C Spire is below.

Ridgeland, Mississippi, – November 1, 2011 – C Spire Wireless today announced iPhone 4S will be available beginning Friday, November 11.

Luis Lopez
Luis Lopez Yes. I went to a Sprint store today and my HTC Sensation 4G smoked their variant of the Samsung Galaxy II in terms of network speed. I don't know how Sprint's network is anywhere else, but its awfully slow here in Chicago. It doesn't really matter how impressive a phone is if the cellular network that its supposed to be running on is um, well unimpressive.
Zack Kjelland
Zack Kjelland No questions! I'm sick of my jailbroken 3G

Thomas Evans
Thomas Evans I agree with @Daniel C spire in the south was a company called CelluarSouth that had great service in the south but when you go up north they either charged more for roaming or your signal was crappy. I know a lot of people who say they have great coverage every where but I doubt it especially if has broaden their service but I guess they have now since it's call C spire now
Chris Corliss
Chris Corliss Why not have it available? It doesn't affect my GSII is any way, and it would get more money to T-Mobile
Nathan Sheaffer
Nathan Sheaffer Tmobile won't get it till the merger buisness is done. If the merger fails then they will get it.
Thomas Evans
Thomas Evans Yeah why not its obviously a open call so to speak now. It seems like companies are gonna slowly get it anyway so now. It's just up to the individual to decide what company he/she likes the best, has the better PLAN!

Hector Portalatin
Hector Portalatin proly get no coverage in ur area that must suck tmo rocks!
Henry Lucio
Henry Lucio T-Mobile sucks !
Michael Foresto
Michael Foresto Don't fall prey T-Mobile! You'll only piss your customers off because the iPhone 5 should be out late spring/early summer and your customers will hate you because they're locked into a contract with a crappy phone. Watch the backlash created once the iPhone 5 is released because the hardware should be as amazing as the Samsung Galaxy S II, if not even more amazing!
Denise Weathers Hooks
Denise Weathers Hooks I had t-Mobil and switched so I could have the iPhone. No regrets. Glad I left because Verizon has better service.

Nick Gifford
Nick Gifford I'm pretty happy with the sheep hogging every other carrier's bandwidth, so no. Simple answer.
Jason King
Jason King Of course if they are concerned about customers leaving T-Mobile to get the iPhone, but if they aren't no. It appears that T-Mobile is the official carrier of Android so there might be a conflict ... But there are a ton of T-mobile customers who have the unlocked iPhone and the jail-broken iPhone, its just tmo is not getting any of that revenu and thats a Fail for T-Mobile.
Hosea Carter
Hosea Carter yes but dont tmo or d telkom want out the us?
Lisette N Pete Carpenter
Lisette N Pete Carpenter besides they are merging with att anyways
Lisette N Pete Carpenter
Lisette N Pete Carpenter no i just switched from tmobile their prices are crazy high i love att and the iphone
Nadim Uddin
Nadim Uddin Just like Sprint, T-Mobile needs to "pay to play" for the iPhone.
Jesus Lopez
Jesus Lopez No
Firas Dabbas
Firas Dabbas csire is cdma like verizon, att is only US gsm network with iphone, cincinnati bell is also gsm and same frequency as t-mobile, and that is why cincinnati bell won't get the iphone until att merger details are figured out. if cincinnati bell gets the iphone, that means t-mobile also has to get it because same frequency and gsm, that's att and apple for you.
Paul Vanderbear
Paul Vanderbear Nope
Kevin Youssef
Kevin Youssef No T-Mobile is garbage
Coulton Vento
Coulton Vento Of course!
Brandon Johnson
Brandon Johnson C spire is privately owned from what I hear, and people already use the iPhone on t mobile so they might as well make it 3G compatible.
Chris Murchison
Chris Murchison wots the point lol
Shawn Poling
Shawn Poling No Internet to slow
Joshua William Garrett
Joshua William Garrett
Tim Woodie
Tim Woodie yes and i dont ever plan on going to tmobile but so many people use the iphone on their network
Pierce G Hohenstein
Pierce G Hohenstein T-Mobile is a decent company, however, they lack coverage nationwide. Same with C-Spire, I don't believe it is in Apple's best interests to provide the iPhone 4(S) to every carrier, I just don't think the demographics would size up or provide enough business to pay back the massive sums of money it costs to bring such a controversial phone as the iPhone to T-Mobile or any other regional carrier. If C-Spire is getting the iPhone lineup why can't US Cellular and Virgin Mobile for that matter? It is easy for these companies to buy their way into an iPhone deal but the question is, can they really afford it? Or is their ass writing a check their bank accounts can't handle?
Jonathan Steele
Jonathan Steele we have to wait and see about Federal regulator (DoJ and FCC) first about AT&T Deal first.
