The retailer will begin preorders for all colors on three US carriers at its stores beginning Friday at regular store opening times, a source familiar with the company's plans told CNET. That includes Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon -- but not T-Mobile, which began carrying iPhones for the first time back in April.
This isn't a first for RadioShack, which has offered preorders of Apple's products in the past, including last year's iPhone 5. The retailer joins a growing list that will offer sales of the phone ahead of its September 20 release, including Walmart which on Friday announced plans to sell the 5C on contract for $79, or $20 off Apple's retail price. Apple's carrier partners announced plans to begin sales at 12:01 a.m. PT tomorrow.
