Virgin Mobile prepaid brand a little love. For the last year or so Virgin Mobile has had a very limited selection of mostly old and/or low-end phones and the plans weren't very competitive either. That changed this week with the launch of four new Virgin Mobile phones, including the iPhone 6s. The new devices are the:
The $549.99 Apple iPhone 6s 16 GB, which is in stock now on the Virgin website. I hope you like gold phones because that's the only color currently available.
The HTC Desire 626s tri-band LTE Android phone is available now for $129.99. It features a 5-inch, 720x1280px screen, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 8 GB internal storage and 1.5 GB RAM, a memory card slot, 1.1 Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 210 SOC and 8 MP rear and 2 MP front-facing cameras.
