Radio Shack has good deals on a couple of Virgin Mobile's best phones. The brand new Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE, Virgin's first LTE phone and its first with Android 4.1 Jellybean, is on sale for $249.99 at the 'Shack. That's $50 off the phone's regular $299.99. This is a great deal especially if you live in one of the areas where Sprint's LTE network is up and running.
In addition to LTE and an up to date OS, the Victory has a 4 inch 800 x 480 px screen, a dual core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon processor and a 5 MP camera with flash and HD video recording.
For bargain hunters, Radio Shack is clearing out remaining inventory of the HTC EVO V 4G for $99.99. The EVO V 4G was Virgin Mobile's top phone, selling for $299.99, when it was released just last May.
Although it lacks LTE, the EVO V 4G does have WiMAX 4G which is currently available in more places than LTE. Other specs include a 4.3 inch 960 x 540 px screen, dual core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon processor, 5 MP 3D camera with flash,720p 3D HD video recording and Android 4.00 Ice Cream Sandwich. The EVO V 4G was sold out online for most of the week is now back in stock on radioshack.com. I expect it to sell out quickly again at the $99.99 price.
Update As of 2 PM PST, Mar 7, the EVO V 4G has apparently sold out again. It not even listed on the Radio Shack site anymore.
Update: 7 PM PST Mar 8, the EVO V 4G is still sold out online but the phone's order page order page is back up so you can use the Find Nearby button to search for it in local stores. It showing in stock for me in a couple of San Francisco stores and one in Ogden UT. Those are the only cities I checked so it looks like it's still fairly widely available.
Both phones should also be available in at least some Radio Shack stores although they may be hard to find. Use the Find it Nearby button on the radioshack.com sales pages to verify availability.
Update: Mar 20, the deal has ended, the HTC EVO 4G is back in stock but the price is now $179.99. Also, Virgin Mobile has cut the Galaxy Victory's list price to $249.99 so RadioShack's price is no longer anything special.
