iPhone 4S & iPhone 4 Hit Virgin Mobile June 29th w/ $30 Plans

Starting June 29th Virgin Mobile will sell the iPhone 4s and iPhone 4 with pre-paid service on Sprint’s network.

Virgin Mobile will sell the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 with Beyond Talk unlimited data and messaging plans which start at a very reasonable $30 a month with no contracts.

The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S will arrive on Virgin Mobile on June 29th for $649 for the 16GB iPhone 4S and $549 for the 8GB iPhone 4. These prices are much higher than you’ll find at Sprint, Verizon or AT&T, but that’s because there is no contract.

No word on the ability to bring your own used Sprint iPhone 4S to Virgin Mobile.

With plans that start at $30 a month, the total cost of an iPhone 4S on Virgin Mobile is as low as $1,369, which is much cheaper than a comparable plan on AT&T, which costs a little over $2,000.

The Virgin Mobile plans advertise unlimited data, but the speed is reduced, or throttled, after 2.5GB of usage a month. Still, many users will deal with this limitation, as the major carriers don’t offer better deals on data or true unlimited plans, save Sprint’s.

The plans shown below reflect an auto-payment discount of $5 per month for paying with credit, debit or PayPal automatically. Data users who hate talking on the phone will love the features of the $30 unlimited plan.

Virgin Mobile CoverageVirgin Mobile joins Cricket as the second prepaid carrier to offer the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4. Virgin Mobile relies on the Sprint network for coverage, which provides a wide blanket across the U.S.

In the past I have been pleased with Virgin Mobile’s 3G coverage and speed, though it is important to note that the speeds will vary by location and Sprint has been the focus of slow iPhone 4S 3G speeds.

The iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 will launch on Virgin Mobile on June 29th, when users can buy them at Virgin Mobile’s website, Radio Shack, Best Buy and select retailers.

    Woah ! I’m NOT paying that much for that phone. Umm I’m going to wait to see if they lower the price or something, Because that’s RIDICULOUS !

    • Josh says

      It really is not a ridiculous price, any other carrier that has the iphone 4 and 4s charge so much that it is actually cheaper to pay the money up front and get such a good price for the plan then to buy an iphone for 200 and pay 90 or more per month. Now THAT is ridiculous

  4. marina says

    Umm..that price is ridiculous!! If they lower the price soon then i could buy one.but that price is to high!!

    is having an iphone with another company but the phone is unlocked, all you have to do is take the phone to your local Virgin Mobile store and have it programed and turned on under their use?

    hey, the price is reasonable because it is a prepaid phone. All non-contract plans make you pay the full price of the phone upfront before you get a plan. And, if you got an iphone 4S unlocked and used redpocket phone service you would have the same deal. The best you can do is look for one online cheaper or ask around for an unlicked iphone. Sorry.

    Does ANYBODY think anymore? For the SAME features:

    2 years + the cost of the iPhone 4S on VM = $1370.00 plus tax

    2 years + the cost of the iPhone 4S on AT&T = $2360.00

    VM costs $990.00 LESS over two years.
