Sprint Nextel Corp. this week said Apple Inc.’s new iPhone 4S will be eligible for the company’s unlimited data plans.

Under current unlimited plans, users can receive 450 minutes and unlimited data at $69.99 per month or unlimited minutes and data at $99.99 per month.

Verizon Wireless ended unlimited data plan options in July, while AT&T Inc. ended unlimited data plans in June.

Apple this week said the iPhone 4S will be available via AT&T Inc., Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp. Oct. 14 starting at $199.

The iPhone 4S will include the A5 Dual-Core CPU, 8MP camera, 1080 HD video recording functionality, iOS 5, and a new voice command protocol called Suri.

Suri can call, text, email, remind, and offer weather, stock, traffic, direction, and definition information via voice commands.

Battery is said to offer 8 hours of 3G talk time and 10 hours of video.

Additionally, the device will merge CDMA and GSM antennas into one world phone device.

The 16GB SKU will sell at $199, 32GB at $299 and 64GB at $399.

Apple did not announce the next main update to the iPhone family, iPhone 5, at the event.

A prior report claimed the iPhone 5 will include at least a 4-inch touch-screen display and a thinner profile.

The iPhone utilizes the iOS operating system used in iPod Touch and iPad 2 products.

Sprint currently holds 52 million subscribers though less than half are non-contract customers. By comparison, Verizon Wireless holds 106 million subscribers and AT&T Inc. holds 96 million subscribers.
