Interested in an iPhone-plus-unlimited-data combo, but live in a dismal Sprint coverage area? Buck up. You’ll have a fourth iPhone carrier option soon, and it too offers unlimited. No, it’s not T-Mobile. It’s C Spire, the carrier formerly known as Cellular South.
Would-be customers will want to look closely at the fine print before signing up, though — the two least expensive of its four service plans (which start at $50) prohibit data streaming. So unless you like getting an epic punch to the wallet, you can forget about enjoying YouTube, Netflix, HBO Go, Xfinity TV or the others, at least without WiFi.
C Spire asserts that it supports the highest proportion of smartphone users in the country. It should be interesting to see what happens to its network when all the i-users come to its yard.
