Claro Getting the iPhone 4S: $99 Each With 2 Year Contract
Claro has begun selling the iPhone 4S!
Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon. This is what America had to choose from. This is the history of iPhone 4S cellular options. Today, however two new companies are getting the iPhone 4S. Who? One was C Spire and the oher is Claro. Claro is outside of the 50 United States, and supports parts of Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other Central American locations. Puerto Rico is technically U.S. territory, and for that, this means Claro is the fifth U.S. carrier to get the iPhone 4S! T-Mobile, are you feeling the burn yet?
Currently, only Puerto Rican Claro subscribers will be able to purchase the iPhone 4S, not other Central American subscribers. But here is a little surprise; the iPhone 4S will only cost $99 for the 16GB version with a two-year contract. That's $100 cheaper than you will find on any carrier in the 50 United States! They are also selling the iPhone 4 with 8GB of memory (the downgraded model that Apple offers on Sprint as well) for $49 with a two-year contract. That makes you wonder – how expensive are the cellular plans?
The cellular plans are actually pretty low. Actually, very low, when compared with AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. Cellular plans at Claro with the two-year contract and the 16GB iPhone 4S are between around $65-85 per month. With the $65 plan at 250MB of data and the $85 plan at unlimited data. Wow. Unlimited data. Wouldn't some of us just kill for that? And the price is absolutely unbeatable!
You can also buy unlocked iPhone's on Claro's network however they come with a price that is $20 more each than the US standard price. So the unlocked iPhone 4S 16GB here would be $649.99 while for Claro the same phone is $669.99. So it's a little more costly to buy the unlocked iPhone 4S in Puerto Rico, however it might be a really good investment to just go with the contract version; it's only $99 and brings some of the cheapest cellular plans I've ever seen which include unlimited data. Getting the same iPhones in the 50 United States are easily cost double or triple per month what they cost on Claro's network.
So who's going to be moving to Puerto Rico this weekend to get the iPhone 4S? Share in the comments below!

Jeeeez. That's so cheap. $85 for unlimited everything and $99 for an iPhone 4s? That's crazy. But how's their service? lol.

I wonder what their early termination fee is? I only saw one thing online that said their early termination fee is $200 but it was from 2010. If that's true then I could buy an Iphone 4S for $99, then cancel and pay the $200 cancellation fee and then I would stick my current AT&T SIM card into my new Iphone 4S. Best case scenario is that I would have a new Iphone 4S for $300 Thoughts?

yesterday I switched to Sprint after God knows how long from T-mobile. I finally went from the 1st gen 5 year old iphone to 4s....talking about a quantum leap...LOL!!! I got Sprint's $79 per month plan which gives 450 anytime minute, free calls from 7pm to 7am, free weekends, unlimited texting and true unlimited data. Also the Sprints iphones are unlocked. I just couldn't wait any longer for the iphone 5 with the bigger screen and 4g. I'm actually very happy with sprint's 3g speeds. I'm getting 2mbs down. I'm now patiently waiting for that damn jailbreak. So far I'm luv'n the 4s except for the battery life which truly and utterly sucks, I guess 3g really drains the battery fast.
