Just like Sprint, AT&T, too, will be offering the newly announced iPhone 5 this coming September 21st, although AT&T subscribers (or would be subscribers) will be able to place your pre-orders from September 14th onwards for the latest iPhone, with a slew of flexible data plan options to choose from. As expected, iPhone 5 on AT&T will come in three flavors (capacities, actually), 16GB, 32GB and 64GB which will cost you $199.99, $299.99 and $399.99, respectively. for the 64GB model. While Sprint might come from its position of strength as “Truly Unlimited”, AT&T will bank on their status as the “nation’s largest 4G network” to help it sell the iPhone 5 and perhaps, along the way, poach customers from other carriers.
Ralph de la Vega, president & CEO, AT&T Mobility, said, “We are thrilled to offer iPhone 5 on the nation’s largest 4G network. We’ve worked with Apple since the original in 2007 and this is hands-down their best phone yet. We offer customers the flexibility to keep the iPhone data plans they already have or choose any of our individual or new Mobile Share plans. We’re proud that more customers choose AT&T for iPhone than any other U.S. carrier and look forward to making iPhone 5 the newest addition to our lineup.”
Will it be Sprint or AT&T (or other carriers) for you when it comes to the iPhone 5, or would you want an unlocked model instead? [Press Release]
