NEW YORK – Leap Wireless International, the parent of the Cricket cellphone service, on Thursday said it will be the first mainland U.S. phone company to sell the iPhone on a prepaid, no-contract basis.

Starting June 22, Leap will sell the iPhone 4S starting at $500 and the iPhone 4 starting at $400. Service will cost $55 per month for unlimited calls, texting and data.

Leap Wireless International, which is based in San Diego, focuses on selling no-contract service to low-income households. Its own network is limited to some cities. In other places, it uses Sprint Nextel's network.

The iPhone is compatible only with part of Leap's network and the company is limiting sales to those areas, which include Houston and Austin, Texas; Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh; Denver; and Salt Lake City.

Leap said the phone will be available in areas covering about 70 percent of its 6.2 million subscribers. It's the sixth-largest cellphone company in the U.S., by number of subscribers.

Open Mobile, which serves Puerto Rico, became the first U.S. company to start selling no-contract, prepaid iPhones on May 18.

Leap's "unlimited" data plan for the phone is slowed down after 2.3 gigabytes of usage since the start of a monthly billing cycle. That's a slightly lower limit than Verizon or AT&T impose for their "unlimited" plans.

Apple sells the iPhone at an average wholesale price of $647. The bigger phone companies then subsidize it by hundreds of dollars to sell it for $99 or $199. They count on making their money back in service fees over the life of a two-year contract. Since Leap sells the phone without a contract, it's subsidizing the phone less.

Larger carriers also sell the iPhone without a contract plan. But those phones cost more than iPhones bought through plans, and service costs the same as for phones used on a contract plan. Leap's plan is cheaper than what most iPhone customers pay.

Since the iPhone is so expensive, it's not a given that it's a good deal for a phone company to sell it. In a presentation to investors, Leap said it has committed $900 million over three years to buying iPhones. That's just 10 percent of its projected spending on phones, it said, and it doesn't expect iPhone sales to affect its operating income this year.

"We wouldn't be doing it if we didn't think it was a money maker," said Leap CEO Doug Hutcheson, in an interview. But because of the high price of the phone, he doesn't expect that more than 10 percent of the company's customers will buy it.

"This is an important addition to our portfolio, but it isn't going to become our business," Hutcheson said.

Leap sells smartphones running Google's Android software for $100, and sometimes even less.

Investors initially cheered the news, sending Leap shares up in premarket trading. But by noon, the shares were down 16 cents, or 2.8 percent, to $5.68.

The iPhone is hugely popular, but its price has kept it out of reach of many people who want it, across the world. When asked whether they could produce a cheaper model to satisfy demand, Apple executives have said that their first priority is making a good phone.

Missing from Leap's iPhone lineup is the 3GS, an older model that's still sold by AT&T. It's cheaper than the newer models, but doesn't work with Leap's or Sprint's networks.

Verizon Wireless, AT&T Inc. and Sprint, the three biggest cellphone companies in the U.S., already sell the iPhone, as do a half-dozen smaller, regional phone companies. The biggest companies that don't carry it are T-Mobile USA and MetroPCS Communications Inc. U.S. Cellular Corp., another regional carrier, said it turned down the chance to sell the phone because of its cost.

The Biggest Mistake you can ever make when dealing With A Capricorn Man......

Okay understand this your Capricorn Man is working 9/10

So when it's personal even you're just texting it's personal it's you and him....

I've noticed that a woman I meet is worried if I have twitter Facebook or some kind of other social network so me being honest I say yes...

So what happens they sleep on your page lol

And then you get a text why you said asked or did this

If I was your man it's my job to rid you of insecurity I know

But the worse thing you can do when dealing with me is worry about anyone else other than me

How the hell you asking me about females online before you ask how my day is?

I could be having the worst day ever...

Some women need to realize its not all about them it's about us

And 9/10 if you're worried about this and that person there is no us...

I wanna know.....

one of the greatest love songs of all time is Joe I wanna know...so this is my ode to that and to the ladies who think we only wanna know if its wet and the bra size LOL...

But seriously my main objective if you give yourself to me mind body & soul is what I have to do to please you baby anything you say I'd do...

no if ands or buts about it its just that if you give yourself to me its my job as your man to cater to you as you do me.......

Cause any man that you call your man it should be his objective to make you happy...not because he has to but because he wants to...

A man that truly loves you only wants to see you happy and you being happy makes that man happy...

its all about pleasing your significant other...

sometimes we have to do things we don't want to in that but thats part of love & thats the way it goes

Honestly most women think men don't have emotions care or wanna learn about you...

But like Joe said I wish I could take a journey threw your mind so I can find emotions that you try & hide...I know you've been hurt I know I have a penis but its my job to put you at ease make you break down that brick wall you have up...

it's all about patience taking your time...

Most of all I wanna know what makes you cry so I can be the one to always make you smile...

If you do not smile when you see me pop up in your phone I'm doing something wrong I'm not handling my business and if you do shed a tear one it better never be because of me unless its tears of joy but I want to know what makes you cry so I can pick you up when down..

But I hope my smile my jokes my life my bringing life to the room completes you makes you happy and puts a grin on your face from my silly text to the silly dance I may do after we have sex to the serious condo we may have after we sex.....

i'm far from perfect I'm not your ex man I may not be the best may but what separates me is Im willing as your man to push myself my feelings to the side to thank you cherish you love you for letting me in your life all I ask is for communication lack of judgements and the respect I give you...Cause I honestly wanna know where you're at at this moment not the past not the future now so I can walk with you now then fly with you later....
