Strata will become the latest regional cellular provider in the U.S. to carry the iPhone 5. The company made the announcement via their website. Interested customers are being asked to leave their email to be notified when Apple’s latest handset arrives. For the time being, we are told only that the iPhone 5 is “coming soon.” Like most regional carriers, Strata will likely price the iPhone 5 at $50 less than the national carriers. This should mean that the 16GB iPhone 5 will sell for $149 with a two-year contract. Prices have yet to be announced. Strata serves areas in Colorado, and Idaho. They are based in Utah, where they also offer coverage.
