That’s one small step for Apple, and one big step for Apple kind? Apple is now going prepaid. In the US, Cricket mobile will be the first prepaid carrier to get the iPhone. You could get an unlocked iPhone for around $549 from Apple. You could also jailbreak it, and follow some steps to unlock it, or you could buy from Cricket. Crick offers the newest iPhone, the iPhone 4S for only $499. Apple sells the exact same phone for $549. Starting June 22, 2012, Cricket will offer the iPhone 4 and 4S prepaid. T-Mobile is yet to get the iPhone.
