Following the iPhone’s availability on C-Spire, a second regional carrier has announced that they will begin offering the iPhone 4 and 4S to their customers. The carrier, nTelos, operates a CDMA network, and serves customers in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, and North Carolina (with national and international roaming).
nTelos president and CEO Jim Hyde offered the following statement (from the official press release):
As a wireless service provider well-known for delivering the best value in wireless, we’re pleased to offer the amazing new iPhone 4S to our customers. iPhone 4S offers an abundance of new features, and with our industry-leading, nationwide smartphone plans, customers can now enjoy the nation’s best networks for less.
Both the iPhone 4 and 4S are available for $50 cheaper than through Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T, and customers can now preorder either an iPhone 4 or 4S for delivery on April 20. The carrier’s retail stores will also open at 7 AM on April 20 to sell the phones to walk-in customers. Nationwide plans with unlimited data start at $79.99.
