Well this is a strange turn of events, C Spire Wireless formerly known as Cellular South has announced the availability of the iPhone 4S. This move is puzzling to say the least, the carrier has a little over a million customers and got the iPhone before the larger T-Mobile.
T-Mobile still claims that they are trying to strike a deal to carry the iPhone on their network. A deal which could bring about 50 million more subscribers the availability of the iPhone. It is not clear whether Apple’s terms are too great for T-Mobile to agree on at this time or if they ever will.
Sprint had to make a commitment to purchase 30.5 million iPhone’s over the period of 4 years in order to make a deal with Apple. The deal with Sprint scores Apple $20 Billion over 4 years.
C Spire also currently offers an unlimited data plan at $50 a month with Sprint currently being the only other carrier to still offer an unlimited data plan.
