Regional US Carrier nTelos Snags iPhone – Where You At T-Mobile?

With the launch of the iPhone 4S this past October, we not only saw Sprint jump on the iBandwagon, but we also saw a Regional carrier in the US gain rights to Cupertino’s mobile powerhouse. 6 months since the launch we now see a second Regional carrier picking up the device, nTelos, which is a Virginia-based wireless company that services the Virginias, along with portions of Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Kentucky.

nTelos currently has around 400k subscribers, which will probably become 400,000 more people to own the iPhone in the US. Being the 5th partnership with Apple in the US, it still makes us wonder when T-Mobile will do whatever it takes to grab the device. Sprint was in a whole and made a huge gamble with tons of money for the device, and it has done nothing but help them out.

The Virginia-based CDMA carrier will be launching the 8GB iPhone for at $50 with a new contract, while giving you the 16, 32 and 64GB models come in at $150, $250, and $350 respectively. If you happen to be in this part of the United States, combine $50 off your normal big-box carriers with the $100 Unlimited voice and data add on, you will definitely have yourself an amazing deal.

The phone is still showing on their website as ‘Coming Soon’, so there is really no telling when we’ll see it. Next week does mark the 6 month date since the launch of the iPhone 4S, so that sounds like a good time to me!
