Regional carrier nTelos Wireless announced this morning via a press release that it will carry Apple’s iconic smartphone from Friday, April 20. The latest iPhone 4S will be priced at $149.99 for the 16GB model, $249.99 for the 32GB model and $349.99 for the 64GB model, the carrier said. The previous-generation 8GB iPhone 4 will be available for $49.99.

These prices entail a new 24-month contract. Unlike AT&T and Verizon Wireless, nTelos offers nationwide plans starting at $79 a month, with unlimited everything for $99 a month. They, however, throttle data after 5GB.

All iPhone models will be available in their retail and online stores and through telesales. nTelos stores will open early at 7am on the launch day. If you live in an area with nTelos covearge and are in the market for an iPhone, you can pre-register your interest starting today at their website.

nTelos is the second regional carrier to sell Apple’s popular handset. The first was C-Spire Wireless, a southeastern regional operator, which now offers the entry-level iPhone 4S for just $149.

The Waynesboro, Virginia-headquartered nTelos Wireless has over 400,00 customers and operates a CDMA PCS network in Virginia, West Virginia and portions of Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky and North Carolina. Currently, they offer 1XRTT and REV. A EVDO using Alcatel-Lucent technology.

Here, the plans they have on offer…

With a $50 hardware discount compared to the big three (Verizon, AT&T and Sprint) and the unlimited everything option, nTelos certainly has a tempting offering up their sleeve.

How do nTelos’ prices compare to your carrier’s deals?

    plan 1 sounds pretty good to me. My wife and I pay ~$153.48 a month for 2 iPhone 4S lines that are grandfathered in with unlimited data – but apparently AT&T throttles data @ 2GB. My iPhone 4S says that I have download 6.2GB via cellular data over its lifetime – bought the iPhones in late Jan. Depending on coverage and 4G speeds… this may be a viable option for us. AT&T has not been the greatest carrier in all the land…. but the alternatives are not that great either. I think if we switched, we would go to verizon, their 4G speeds are really great.
