A second wave of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus launches is coming Sept. 26 to rural and Tier 2 carriers along with MVNOs.
NTelos announced it will begin selling Apple’s two new phones Friday and will start pricing out at $150 for the 16GB iPhone 6 and $250 for the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus, $50 less than where most major carriers start their on-contract pricing for the devices. NTelos will also be offering the new iPhones at installment pricing starting at $27.08 for 24 months and topping out at $39.58.
C Spire Wireless used the same iPhone pricing structure as nTelos. C Spire is currently showing that all models of the new iPhones are currently out of stock but the carrier is offering updates on shipments via its Facebook page.
MVNOs are getting in on the action, too. Credo Mobile, an activist operator running on Sprint’s network, is taking pre-orders for the new iPhones and will start selling the devices on Sept. 26.
Consumer Cellular on Friday also said it will begin selling both iPhones through its Easy Pay program. Customers can get an iPhone 6 for $150 upfront and 20 monthly payments of $25 or an iPhone 6 Plus for $200 upfront and 22 monthly payments of $25.
Truphone, an MVNO offering SIMs that work with different local numbers in the U.S., U.K., Hong Kong, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain, previously announced it would begin selling the new iPhones on Sept. 26 as well.
One of Sprint’s official prepaid brands Boost Mobile Tuesday announced it will be carrying both iPhones.
Finally, AT&T’s Cricket Wireless has yet to announce any availability for the new iPhones either online or in its retail spots. T-Mobile’s MetroPCS does not offer iPhone and hasn’t changed its stance for this release. But MetroPCS customers can buy a SIM in order to use an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus compatible with T-Mobile’s GSM network.
