Apple to launch iPhone 5s, 5c on regional US carriers Oct. 1

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Apple's new flagship iPhone 5s and mid-range iPhone 5c will become available on eight regional wireless carriers in U.S. beginning Oct. 1, including C Spire, Cellcom, and Bluegrass.

iPhone 5s


The new iPhones, released to record-breaking sales last Friday, may get slightly easier to find as they make their way to regional wireless carriers next month. Apple moved more than nine million iPhone 5s and 5c units in their first weekend of availability, and larger national carriers AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint quickly sold out of their supply.

Carriers launching Apple's new phones on Oct. 1 include:


Some of the smaller carriers have chosen to offer the devices at a discount ? for instance, consumers can get an on-contract iPhone 5s from Ntelos for $149.99, a $50 discount from the the phone's normal price.

While Apple's regional carrier partners have been publicly announcing their release dates over the last few days, MacRumors was the first to compile a more complete list of carriers set for the Oct. 1 launch.

Frick that could be GOOD news! That just might mean they get a new batch from the factories for sale at Apple Stores as well. God, I hope they'll announce additional countries as well!

How is it that they keep supplying stores with new stock when launch day orders haven't even been filled yet?

Hah, now that's funny. GCI is getting them, but their largest competitor, ACS, isn't.
