Cricket Launching Apple’s New iPhones This Week

Cricket Launching Apple's New iPhones This WeekWithin days, Apple’s new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will officially go on sale in 50 new markets and geographic locations around the world.

But Apple’s new iPhones will also see an uptick in availability among domestic and international carriers.

Beginning next week, Apple’s flagship iPhone 5s and the lower-cost iPhone 5c will be available on dozens of small, regional carriers in the U.S.

Correspondingly, prepaid carrier Cricket says it will also begin carrying the new iPhones next Friday, October 25th.

Cricket is yet to announce details related to pricing and availability, CNET confirms.

It’s unclear how much the phones will cost through Cricket, which offers service to customers without contracts. Prepaid customers typically pay full price for a device unless the carrier offers some sort of promotion. The iPhone iPhone 5S starts at $649 without a contact, while the 5C starts at $549.

Cricket Communications is owned by Leap Wireless, which is being acquired by AT&T.
