iPhone 4S coming soon to... C-Spire Wireless

iPhone 4S coming soon to... C-Spire Wireless
We expected it as much as you did - C-Spire Wireless, the carrier we were the first to alert you about back in September, is getting the iPhone 4S in the coming weeks. At least that's what its official website states and we have no reason to doubt it, except... if that's some kind of a weird joke we don't quite get yet. Not T-Mobile, but C-Spire Wireless, previously known as Cellular South, the US ninth largest carrier. Subscriber count? Less than a million.

Weird as it seems, C-Spire Wireless is already offering a sign up page, which will store your contacts and ping you whenever more information becomes available. Now, our guess is that you're also puzzled about why Apple picked this exact new carrier. Our first guess is a monetary incentive offered by the service provider, but could it also be that this signals an even wider upcoming availability of the iPhone 4S? That's just a speculation, but doesn't seem impossible any more.

Apart from that, the iPhone 4S has launched with tremendous success selling 4 million units over the first weekend of availability. Sprint and AT&T said they had record sales on day one of offering the new iPhone, so we have every reason to believe that C Spire Wireless will get a huge boost in subscriber count with the new offer.

Currently, the carrier lures in subscribers with its unlimited data offerings starting at the industry challenging $50 a month. This plan includes 500 minutes, unlimited text and network minutes. $70 a month buys you all you can eat everything - data, minutes and texts. Could this make you consider the regional carrier?


Thanks, Anmar!

Does this carrier have any phones out yet, I don't see this one listed under the carriers, nor do I see cellular south listed under discontinued?

Apple's iPhones are being used by 230 carriers in 105 countries. It's sad that C-Spire gets the iPhone and T-mobile is left out in the cold.

they want some of the prepaid action. and im guessing the region this company covers (deep south) has very high prepaid sales. this is a well thought out move, in one way or another.

C-Spire isn't even prepaid, nor do they have a prepaid plan. This is contract based, I hope you know.

I agree, HSPA+ isnt a 4G technology but it has decent speeds. 4G encompasses more than just speed like latency & bandwidth. Its why the 3 biggest US carries are moving to LTE for data. I believe T-MO is trying to max out their current 3G(3.5G) network b4 moving to LTE.There's a large # of global carriers are going with LTE especially with LTE Advanced in the future.

T-Mobile doesn't have unlimited data. They have 200mb, 2gb, 5gb, and 10gb of High Speed and then the rest of your "unlimited" data is bumped down to EDGE speeds. C-Spire actually has unlimited data.

I still think somebody at this company's marketing (in-house or outsourced) department should be shot over the rediculous name and the people that agreed with it should be fired. Further proof that 95% of college degrees are nothing more than a piece of overpriced paper and of those that hold one, only 13% have any common sense.

I like how because you've never heard of it, you assume it's prepaid. C-Spire, which went under a name change in September of this year (2011) from Cellular South, is, and always has been, a contract carrier. There is no prepaid option. While the phones are a little more simpler, the prices and coverage outrank the big four greatly. I love C-Spire and I'm so glad that now I can get this amazing phone on the best amazing network. FYI it's the 8th largest, not the 9th.
