For all of you Virgin Mobilers out there who never thought you would ever get to experience the iphone 4’s ravishing technological capabilities, think again. Virgin Mobile (News - Alert) recently announced on Thursday that it will now be offering Apple’s iphone 4 and 4S starting Friday, June 29th with contract free plans as low as $30 per month.
Customers, who belong to Virgin Mobile, will be able to purchase the 16-gigabyte iPhone (News - Alert) 4S for $649, which aligns with the price of a contract-free handset purchased through the Apple store, or AT&T. The Mobile carrier offers its customers a $5 per month discount when they decide to register for automatic monthly payments, which is considered a basic plan with “unlimited” data and text messaging and 300 voice minutes for only $30. So, although they may pay a higher premium upfront, they may also see savings on their plans. Users can upgrade to 1,200 minutes for $10 more per month, or receive unlimited minutes for $50 per month.
Virgin Mobile will also offer Apple’s (News - Alert) 8-gigabyte iPhone 4 for $549. “This month marks Virgin Mobile USA’s tenth birthday,” mentioned Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group. “And what better way to thank our fans for ten years of loyalty than by giving them exactly what they want: the perfect plan for the perfect phone. That is the essence of ‘A Higher Calling.” Any one of Virgin Mobile’s customers could have easily switched companies or had plans to receive the high-tech smartphone, but they waited and stuck around, and now they are finally getting what they deserve.
