At least nine US regional carriers will start selling the iPhone 5s and 5c on October 1, according to announcements. The list so far includes Appalachian Wireless, Bluegrass Cellular, C Spire, Cellcom, GCI, MTA, Nex-Tech Wireless, Ntelos, and Strata. Some other carriers have stated that the new iPhones are "coming soon," which could imply launches as soon as the 1st. In addition to the US carriers, Canadian regional providers SaskTel and MTS are also part of the October 1 rollout.
US regional carrier Strata Networks will soon start carrying the iPhone 5, according to its website. The company is currently only promising that the device is "coming soon," and signing people up to be notified when more information is available. Strata is based in Utah, but also has local coverage in Idaho and Colorado, and supports nationwide calling.
