NEW YORK (AP) - Apple says C Spire Wireless, the country’s eighth-largest phone company, will start selling the iPhone 4S in a few weeks.

The iPhone is eagerly coveted by phone companies. Mississippi-based C Spire is leapfrogging much larger carriers including T-Mobile USA and U.S. Cellular in getting the right to sell it.

Sprint Nextel Corp. began selling Apple Inc.’s phone last week. AT&T Inc. and Verizon Wireless were already selling it.

C Spire was called Cellular South until a month ago. It has about 1 million subscribers.
