IPhone 5 Coming to Virgin Mobile USA June 28 for $549.99

At long last Virgin Mobile USA will be getting the iPhone 5. The current Apple flagship will be available on the Virgin Mobile web site starting Friday, 6/28/13. The 16 GB version in black or white will be $549.99 plus taxes. It will also be available at Virgin Mobile dealers and at RadioShack. The 32 GB and 64 GB models, also in black and white, will be available online only for $649.99 and $749.99, respectively.

The Virgin Mobile iPhones can be used on any Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk plans which start at $35/month for unlimited messaging and 3G/4G LTE data (throttled to 256 Kbps after 2.5 GB) and 300 voice minutes. Customers with an iPhone can also receive a $5 per-month plan discount when they register and sign up for automatic monthly payments with a credit card, debit card or PayPal account, making the iPhone 5 available on Virgin Mobile for as low as $30 per month.

  1. With auto-payment it doesn't get much better than this.

    The ONLY downside is that the phone is CDMA and is (essentially) locked to Virgin Mobile.

    Great job again Dennis!

  4. Nice to see VM gets the pricing right when the get pricing for android devices wrong.

    iPhone 5 costs $650 from Straighttalk.com or Apple.com but costs $550 or $100 less.

    Hope to get 4G LTE speeds and hotspot for extra $15 a month.

  5. Well there goes the idea of Boost Mobile ever getting the iPhone.

    1. Too early to give up. Sprint is still way behind in selling $20B of iPhones under their contract with Sprint, so Boost should get iPhones one of these days.

  6. Autopay would be more expensive for me even with the $5 discount due to fake "taxes" virgin mobile collects from paying them directly. I just buy the refills at Target with 5% off redcard and stock up when I have extra 5% off pharmacy card = 9.75% off and no tax.

    1. My Target collects fake tax on refills, too, even though prepaid phone service is exempt from sales and communications taxes in my state. It's as if I am buying a taxable piece of cardboard that happens to have some numbers on it. I get 5+5% off you mention, then pay 5% plus 50c e911 tax on top of that.
      For me, it's better to take the VM cc $5 off, and keep $2.50 of it after they hit me with e911 and $2 in fake taxes. I come out 52c ahead.
