Last month saw six small US carriers including nTelos of Virginia, begin offering the iPhone for the first time. It appears that another round of expansion to similar carriers is coming on 18 May 2012.
Three new iPhone carriers, all operating CDMA networks, have rolled out their announcements:
– Bluegrass Cellular (in Kentucky)
– Golden State Cellular (in California)
– Nex-Tech Wireless (in Kansas)
As with other regional carriers, the new entrants will be offering the iPhone at $50 below the standard pricing available through Apple and the major carriers. Under the discounted pricing, the iPhone 4S will be priced at $149/$249/$349. The iPhone 4 will be available for $49.
