The Apple iPhone 4S has been a runaway hit with 4 million sales in the opening weekend. It's also quickly being launched to a lot of foreign markets, but what's interesting is that even smaller carriers are getting it. The most surprising network its soon to be available on? C Spire Wireless. The regional carrier, previously known under the Cellular South brand name, has less than a million subscribers, but has confirmed that it's getting the new iPhone on November 11th.
Just as you'd expect, the carrier is getting the same versions of the iPhone 4S as you know on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint – a black and white ones, coming with 16GB to 64 gigs of internal memory. Prices start at $199 for the basic model with a two-year contract. C Spire is also getting the iPhone 4 8GB version which will set you back $99 if you sign a 2-year agreement.
C Spire Wireless aims to differentiate with personalized plans. For the iPhone, the $50 and $70 plans are a nice match and a comparatively affordable one. Even though, all of them are said to include “unlimited” data, streaming is excluded from the service. The more expensive $90 and $100 plans have truly unlimited data.

I still think this is some kind of joke. Why would apple choose them over T-Mobile? And why so willingly put their phone on a carrier with less than 1 million subs when a carrier like sprint with over 50 million had to act so desperate to get this phone? I think something's going on here.
