Cricket Communications, which is owned by Leap Wireless and is about to be purchased by AT&T, will offer Apple’s newest smartphones to its customers starting October 25, Cricket said Monday. Customers can preregister their interest at Mycricket.com/register.
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.
We’ve contacted Cricket and will update the report when we have more information.
