nTelos Wireless getting the iPhone 4S on April 20th, T-Mobile - not
The iPhone is by now a well-oiled super selling machine that is offered across over 230 carriers across the globe. In the States, it’s available on the three major carriers and now it arrives on another mobile operator and it’s not T-Mobile. After regional carrier C-Spire Wireless got the latest iPhone, now nTelos Wireless announced that it’s getting the iPhone 4S on April 20th.

And yes, we know almost as much about nTelos as you do - it’s small. So why would you want to go with its services? How about $50 off the price of the iPhone? That’s exactly what you get on nTelos. The 16GB iPhone 4S will cost you $149.99 on a two-year contract, and the 32GB version would set you back $249.99, while the most capable 64GB iPhone 4S will be priced at $349.99. The carrier will open its stores at 7am on April 20th to meet what it obviously expects to be huge lines.

nTelos is also getting the iPhone 4 and will sell it for $49.99 on a 2-year contract.

The regional carrier only works across Virginia, West Virginia and parts of Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Kentucky, covering a measly 400,000 subscribers. And it’s got the latest iPhone. nTelos is a CDMA carrier and offers nationwide roaming on Verizon and Sprint’s networks.

The funniest part about nTelos getting the iPhone is the carrier’s explanation why Apple picked it among the rest.


So there you have it, only with the best. And yes, of course, that includes nTelos!

Confusing, Sprint says it's so expensive that is causing financial problems, T-Mobile is not getting it for the same reason (apparently) and nTelos is offering it cheaper???

Funny thing is, they have better, affordable, plan than the big three.

You'd be surprised on how many affordable providers (both local and national) there are besides the "big three". The only disadvantages you can see is possibly bad customer service, service coverage and/or low data speeds.

It's the same price as Sprint's plan with the exception that Sprint offers unlimited cell phone to cell phone minutes.

I don't really see the need for smartphones like this on a niche market. The real question here is how are they able to subsidize a phone this low while maintaining profits? Does Apple sell them this phone really that low?

In short, apple is pairing with even more regional carriers to sell its overpriced chinese garbage at considerable expense to the subscribers of said carriers. I'm so thankful that T-Mobile doesn't have it, and I hope they never do. I don't want my money going to support a company that promotes borderline slavery

Forget the iPhone...Ok, before all ya'll iFan's get to sending me death threats, I'm not not knocking the iphone itself. I just want to see a company just flat out say "we don't want it" with pride. I understand people love the iPhone and think that it's the best thing since close toed shoes but, it's getting to become something that companies feel that they need just to survive. I wish Sprit could stop struggling to keep it and just get something to kick it's a**. I know that not at probable considering consumer demand and the popularity of the brand but, damn! their bout' to go bankrupt trying to keep one of the main products that's supposed to keep them from bankruptcy!

AT&T had a hand in TMobile not getting the iPhone. One way of "forcing" FCC's hand on the merger attempt.

Tmobiles crap coverage had a hand in it too.
