Cricket said there was a bit of buzz around its start of iPhone 4S sales today, with some customers lining up to buy before stores opened.
The wireless service is the first to offer a prepaid, no-contract iPhone, an expensive and unique device for the prepaid market.
The 16GB iPhone 4S costs $499.99, while the 8GB iPhone 4 costs $399.99. The phone comes with a $55 no-contract plan that includes unlimited calling and text messages. The plan also includes 2.3GB of data, after which the carrier will slow the connection down.
A Cricket representative said the phone was available at company-owned and select dealers this morning with "brisk" customer activity.
