C Spire Offers Another Twist on Unlimited Data for the iPhone

Sprint is no longer the only game in town when it comes to unlimited data on the iPhone, at least if you live in certain parts of the U.S.

Starting Nov. 11, regional carrier C Spire (formerly Cellular South) will offer the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with a number of unlimited options.

The two lower-priced options, at $50 and $70 per month, include unlimited Web surfing and other data, but specifically exclude streaming media services like Netflix and Pandora. Two higher-priced plans, at $90 and $100 per month, include truly unlimited data, along with either 1,000 voice minutes or unlimited calling.

C Spire will sell the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S at the same prices being offered by Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. Both Verizon and AT&T had unlimited data plans for the iPhone, but they no longer offer them to new customers.

“(The) iPhone 4S offers an abundance of new features, and with our Choice Infinite data plans customers can enjoy all of them on our network without having to think about their next bill,” C Spire CEO Hu Meena said in a statement.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
