Today is a good day for those SaskTel or MTS customers who’ve been waiting for the iPhone 5 to arrive. Just 1-week after it officially launched last week, the Saskatchewan and Manitoba regional carriers are quick to release it. Much praise can be given to the build out of their HSPA+ or in MTS’ case their new LTE network

Both carriers will have both the Black & Slate and White & Silver colours, also in 16GB ($179), 32GB ($279) and 64GB ($379) flavours. Read our full review of the iPhone 5 here.

In addition, we’ve reached out to MTS to see why they’ve only listed the iPhone 5, which is LTE-compatible, on their “4G HSPA+ network” and not their “4G LTE Network.”

Update: NorthernTel has also become one of the carriers to offer the iPhone 5. Prices are the same as above.

    It is also availible today at NorthernTel Mobility. I wish that Mobile Syrup would list all information from all sources. I provided this tip about a week and a half ago.

    what an ugly back design, I just can’t look at it anymore…put some flowers on the table or something…doesn’t look good at all, my advice.

    600,000 apps for this phone… but no maps… kinda worthless

    Mobilesyrup, why do you put the subsidized prices in the brackets without mentioning anything about contracts? The prices are very misleading, that’s like saying ‘but at the same carriers, you can get Galaxy S2 with $0! Hurry up!’. Please be more specific, there may be people who really believe iPhone 5 is only $179 and will rush to the store and complain when they find out it’s actually triple that price.

    @TP: As someone who sells phones, they come and say that anyway. They even come and say that when it’s advertised as $0 and argue that their phone should be free without a contract.

      Tell me about it! I work at a dealer and jeez people just dont get it.

    So the real question is: When will MTS get some good Samsung devices?

    • Mark

      MTS probably will never get good new Samsung products -re Galaxy S 3.

  • bulletwithbatwings

    Who cares? This phone is garbage.

  • Mark

    Re MTS-did you know iPhone 5 will NOT connect to their new LTE network- re ” carrier load file” -problem specific to Apple.

  • Mark

    iPhone 5 will NOT connect to MTS’s LTE network, re “carrier load file” issue specific to Apple.

  • chip

    @Mark. So iPhone 5 will never connect to MTS LTE network? then why would you get it?

    • Mark
