Back when the iPhone first launched on AT&T you had no option but to go with that carrier, although in the years following other options have opened up, although you could never get a fully prepaid iPhone in the United States, until now that is thanks to Cricket Wireless.
The deal starts on June 22 with a 8GB iPhone 4 priced at $399.99, and a 16GB iPhone 4S priced at $499.99, but before you knock these unsubsidized prices you should consider the $55 a month plan you’re getting from Cricket Wireless. This gives you zero activation fees, no contracts, and nationwide unlimited talk/text/data.
It’s worth pointing out that unlimited technically is not so, and with Cricket Wireless you are subject to a fair usage policy. This allows you to use 2.3GB of data a month, although this is known with most wireless phone networks.
Cricket Wireless believe this prepaid iPhone option is a major milestone for them, and their no-contract plan is said to be one of the best available to the U.S.
Are you tempted by a $399.99/499.99 prepaid iPhone 4/4S, which is on a unlimited $55 no-contract plan with Cricket Wireless?
