    Default iPhone 5 to Release on Regional Carriers Friday, Some of Which Are Offering Discounts


    According to PC Mag, the iPhone 5 will be released on regional wireless carriers in the U.S. starting tomorrow, with some carriers offering special incentives such as $50 price cuts to lure customers in. The list of regional carriers include Cellcom, nTelos, Appalachian Wireless, C Spire, GCI and Cricket Communications. All of them will be starting sales of the iPhone tomorrow; a week after the nation’s largest providers launched the device last week.

    As mentioned before, a number of the smaller cellular companies, including Cellcom, nTelos, and Appalachian, will be cutting $50 off the normal retail price, bringing contract buys to $149 for the 16GB version, $249 for the 32GB nit, and $349 for the largest 64 GB model. Cricket will be offering the iPhone 5 without a contract for $499.99 and up. The others, C Spire and GCI, haven’t released their prices just yet but they are likely to be similar. According to Cellcom CEO, Pat Riordan, “we’ve seen the anticipation for the iPhone 5 grow and are excited to soon offer our customers this fantastic phone on our network.”

    With the introduction of the new handset, last year’s iPhone 4S and the legacy iPhone 4 will also see sizable discounts with some regional carriers extending the $50 price cut to those handsets as well. The smaller operators will also be offering the iPhone 4 for free using the same business model as the nation’s top three carriers.

    Are any of you going to be getting an iPhone 5 from a regional carrier?

    Having an iPhone 5 on Cricket is the equivalence of having a Lamborghini with no gas... It'll be awesome to have it, but after a while, you're gonna wanna take it for a spin, & can't...

    Ha found out I can't even buy it from them they don't support my market area but that's only with the iPhone 5, but it lets me buy other phones.
