iPhone 4S: Verizon, Sprint and AT&T alternatives

When Apple announced that they were going to not give AT&T exclusive rights to the iPhone at the beginning of the year, we knew that it would not be that long before other carriers would follow in Verizon’s footsteps. The release of the iPhone 4S saw Sprint get in on the action as well, but it seems that consumers will have yet more alternatives.

Apple is now allowing some of the smaller U.S. carriers to offer their customers a chance to see what all the fuss is about. C Spire Wireless has less than 1 million customers, but they will soon have access to the new iPhone – we wonder how long it will be before other regional carriers get the same deal?

This will not only benefit C Spire (who has a CDMA network) but also Apple as well, as it shows that they want to give the smaller guy the same opportunity – whether this was something that Steve Jobs already had planned or if it’s something to do with Tim Cook is anyone’s guess, but it’s still a good move? However, AppleInsider does say that Cook and Apple have aggressive plans to make the iPhone 4S more accessible than any other release before it. Let’s hope that Apple fix the battery issue with the iPhone 4S soon, as things are not looking that great for owners of the new smartphone.
