Available for $399.99 and $499.99, respectively, both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S will come with a $55 monthly no-contract plan of unlimited talking and texting and 2.3GB of data; unfortunately, if the data limit is surpassed, Cricket will start throttling connection speeds.
As the Wall Street Journal points out, Cricket's price offerings for the devices are much higher than that of other carriers, such as AT&T, which is currently selling the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S for $99.99 and $199.99, respectively; however, buyers are required to sign up for a 2-year contract and purchase a monthly data plan.
AT&T was the only carrier to offer the iPhone 4 and previous models of the device until February 2011, when Verizon Wireless broke AT&T's exclusive hold on the iPhone. Since then, Sprint, C-Spire and now Cricket have jumped on the iPhone bandwagon.
Interested prepaid iPhone buyers can sign up to learn more about the device's release by on Cricket's website.
