Current and future customers who have or plan on purchasing an Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE now have a few more choices when selecting a mobile carrier.
Now besides the big 4 (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon) customers now have a company called C-Spire.
The device is available not just online and at the carrier’s retail stores, but even via phone orders. New customers can get three months of Watch data free, after which the cost becomes $10 per month.
For a short time, the carrier is also selling the Series 3 for half off in conjunction with the purchase of an iPhone.
U.S. Cellular has been quietly added to Apple’s official roster of Watch carriers. To date the carrier has been selling GPS-only Series 3 models, and the company still doesn’t list any LTE models on its website.
C-Spire is based in Mississippi, and operates there as well as Memphis, parts of Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle. U.S. Cellular is headquartered in Chicago but has a presence in 23 states, with about 5.1 million customers.
