Bluegrass Cellular’s service plans includes unlimited SMS along with 3GB of data, and start at $64.99 a month for 600 voice minutes on network and 200 minutes off network. The company’s unlimited on network and 550 minute off network plan costs $79.99, and the unlimited any network plan costs $99 a month.

Six regional carriers launched their iPhone coverage on April 20. So far, the only national carrier that isn’t offering the iPhone is T-Mobile, although the company is adding support for the 4G wireless data frequencies the iPhone supports.
