Kentucky-based Bluegrass Cellular announced today it will begin offering the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 May 18. The iPhone 4S will start at just $149 for the entry-level 16GB model and the iPhone 4 at $49. The company will also offer the 32GB iPhone 4S for $249 and the 64GB model for $349. We saw these prices before, but it is still around $50 off what most of the major carriers are currently offering.
Of course, the typical two-year commitment applies, and you will have to sign up to one of Bluegrass Cellular’s data plans starting at $65 a month. Details on available plans and the full press is below:
The company’s online pre-order page does not seem to be live yet, but the device will also be available through its Cellular Customer Care Centers, as well as certain authorized agent locations.
Kansas-based Nex-Tech Wireless is also offering the devices with the same pricing scheme starting May 18 and another regional carrier, California-based Golden State Cellular, announced it will do the same. Golden State’s available data plans are listed below:
