• Regional Carriers Launching iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C on October 1

    In less than one week, Apple's new iPhones will launch on a number of regional carriers in the United States, ending the major-carrier exclusivity the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C has enjoyed since last Friday.

    Beginning October 1st, a handful of regional wireless carriers will offer coverage of the new iPhones. The carriers include:

    • Bluegrass Cellular: Kentucky
    • Cellcom: Michigan and Wisconsin
    • C Spire Wireless: Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, Georgia
    • Strata: Utah
    • MTA: Alaska
    • GCI: Alaska
    • Appalachian Wireless: Kentucky and Virginia
    • Ntelos: Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, North Carolina
    • Nex:Tech Wireless: Kansas and Colorado

    Not surprisingly, some of these smaller carriers are offering the new iPhones at a discount with a new or extended contract.

    More carriers are expected to come into the picture and offer the iPhone 5S and 5C in the coming weeks and months.

      This sounds like a much more profitable way to get into the cheaper phone markets than selling a free on contract phone to me. Another Apple win?
