It’s been originally reported that regional carrier Bluegrass Cellular would start selling the iPhone 5 on September 28 alongside Alaska’s GCI and Appalachian Wireless, but something delayed those plans. Be that as it may, today the Kentucky-based carrier announced it will start selling Apple’s latest phone on Friday, November 2.
The company has plans to undercut AT&T, Verizon and Sprint with an aggressive pricing policy. Bluegrass Cellular will also offer the iPhone 4S for just $49 and the iPhone 4 will be available starting at 99 cents, it’s been confirmed. These prices, of course, are valid only with a two-year service contract…
According to a media release out this morning, “Bluegrass will allow iPhone 5 customers to connect to its fast 3G network”. Its nationwide voice and data plans start at $64.99 a month for 3GB of data with unlimited text messaging and 200 voice minutes. The unlimited everything plan will set you back $99.99 a month.
The iPhone 5 will sell for $149/$249/$349 for the 16/32/64GB model, which is a nice $50 discount versus comparable prices on America’s top networks. The device will be available in all Bluegrass Cellular Customer Care Centers, select Authorized Agent locations and at their online store.
In case you’re interested, Bluegrass has 21 company-owned retail locations and more than 30 authorized agent locations throughout 40 counties in central Kentucky.
