Virgin Mobile iPhone 5 Launching on June 28

Virgin Mobile has announced it will begin offering the iPhone 5 with unlimited 3G/4G LTE data on Friday, June 28. Contract-hesitant consumers can nab the 16GB model at a Virgin Mobile retail store, or online for $550. The 32GB and 64GB units will only be available through for $650 and $750, respectively. The Apple handset is being coupled with Virgin Mobile's Beyond Talk plan, which includes unlimited data and messaging starting at $35 a month. Virgin Mobile is also offering a $5 per-month discount plan for customers who sign up for automatic payments.

If you can't afford to drop over $500 for an iPhone all at once, T-Mobile offers the 16GB iPhone 5 for $149 down with 24 monthly payments of $20. There is no contract, but you do have to make all 24 payments even if you decide to leave T-Mobile. You also have to pay at least $20 a month for a data plan to be able to use T-Mobile's network.

Pre-Paid iPhone Arrives at Virgin Mobile

Prepaid iPhones have arrived at Virgin Mobile, giving those who prefer a contract-free smartphone a new option. Virgin joins Cricket Wireless in offering the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S unsubsidized with month-to-month billing.

Pricing is set at $650 for the 16 GB iPhone 4S, and $550 for the 8 GB iPhone 4, matching Apple's currently listed unlocked iPhone prices. Although this may cost more than Verizon's or AT&T's subsidized devices with a two-year contract, customers can save on data plans with Virgin Mobile.
