If you want to pair your iPhone 4S with an unlimited-data plan, Sprint Nextel will no longer be the only game in town.
C Spire is offering four options for service plans, ranging between $50 and $100. All four require a two-year contract. While all of the plans technically offer unlimited data, there is a catch. The two cheapest plans, which cost $50 and $70 a month, respectively, exclude data-streaming services. Streaming movies and songs are among the chief culprits for heavy traffic loads on wireless networks.
The company said it has a network that is built for data devices, noting that it supports the highest percentage of customers with smartphones in the nation.
C Spire surprisingly announced last month that it would also be selling the iPhone, just days after the phone launched with the three largest national carriers. The fourth-largest U.S. carrier, T-Mobile USA, remains left in the cold and has stepped up its reliance on Android smartphones.
