Verizon and Sprint confirm plans to carry iPhone SE staring March 31

Verizon and Sprint have both confirmed that they will carry the iPhone SE when it launches in the U.S. on Thursday, March 31. The carriers will also begin accepting pre-orders when they go live on March 24 at 12:01 a.m. PT. Neither carrier has announced specifics, but it's likely that the phone will be available both on-contract as well as with an installment plan.

If you want to purchase an iPhone SE without a Verizon or Sprint contract or leasing plan, you'll need to pay $399 for the 16GB model, and $499 for 64GB. Additionally, you can trade in an older iPhone for an iPhone SE and get the new four-inch phone for between $10 and $14 per month.

Update: U.S. Cellular has also confirmed plans to carry the iPhone SE starting March 31. Like the other carriers, U.S. Cellular will also begin accepting pre-orders on March 24.
