Virgin Mobile USA to start selling iPhone
For users of smart phones and Apple devices in the United States, the choice of providers is set to get wider, with Virgin Mobile USA announcing that it will start selling the Apple iPhone from the end of this month. The phone will become available through Virgin Mobile USA from 29th June and the handset will cost $549 for the most basic model.
Although the cost of the handset seems high, the monthly costs for the service will be quite reasonably priced, starting at $30 per month. This means that over a two year contract, the cost of the phone plus the service will come to considerably less than it would with some other carriers, where the monthly charge is much higher.
Until recently, the iPhone was restricted to plans that were contract based. However, with the device now able to enter the prepaid, contract-free market, it will become more accessible to those with damaged credit or low incomes, who may not be able to get or cannot afford a contract based service. It is thought that the initial cost of the phone could cause an issue for potential customers, however.
The cheapest plan from Virgin Mobile USA will be $35 per month, but subscribers can get a discount of $5 per month by setting up automatic monthly payment with a credit card, debit card or PayPal account. This plan comes with unlimited texts, 33 voice minutes per month, and unlimited data.
