If you’re a customer of a regional cell phone carrier and would would like to be able to get an iPhone, today just might be your lucky day.

Apple’s hit mobile device has launched on a slew of new carriers: 

  • Alaska Communications serving you guessed it, Alaska
  • GCI also tending to the largest state in the union
  • Appalachian Wireless serving the mountain regions of Kentucky and Virginia
  • Cellcom which caters to Northern Wisconsin and part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
  • nTelos for wireless customers in the Commonwealth of Virginia

    For the standard 2 year commitment, all five carriers offer the iPhones at a $50 discount compared to the major carriers: $49 for the 8GB iPhone 4, $149 for the 16GB 4S, and $249 and $349 respectively for the 32/64GB versions.

    For Alaskans, it gets a bit more interesting.  Alaska Communications also offers a 3yr contract for which the iPhone 4, and 16/32GB 4S models are no cost to the customer with the 64GB version at just $100.  GCI becomes the first non-AT&T carrier to offer the iPhone on a GSM network and in addition to the 4 and 4S at the above prices, will be offering the 3GS for free with 2yr contract.
