C Spire to join iPhone family
C Spire Wireless was previously named Cellular South, and offers a CDMA-based cell network, just like Verizon and Sprint. The company provides cell service to customers in Mississippi, and parts of Florida, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.
The iPhone 4S is currently available in the U.S. on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. AT&T offers a GSM-based wireless network, while Verizon and Sprint use CDMA technology.
Apple began offering the iPhone 4S on October 14, and managed to sell over 4 million units during the first three days of availability. The company also reported selling 17.07 million iPhones during its fourth fiscal quarter — before the iPhone 4S was released.
C Spire Wireless hasn’t announced pricing plans for its iPhone customers yet, although it does offer packages with unlimited data just like Sprint.
