Will the iPhone 5 Be Available on Prepaid Plans?

By Kwame Opam on at

Well, this is surprising. A reader over at TUAW saw both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S pop up on a US network's website. Not only is Cincinnati Bell not a big carrier like other US networks, but it in the prepaid section. What the?

Although this should be taken with a helping of salt, the listing does claim it has an 8MP camera, 4 inch screen, and running on 4G. The smaller, significantly cheaper 4S is also listed as having a 3.5 inch screen but the same A5 processor.

Again. While this is fascinating, it doesn't at all mean it's going to happen. BUT if it does, it means the new iPhones could be available on a multitude of networks on plans that don't necessarily suck you dry at the end of the month and networks that don't throttle you. [TUAW]
