virgin-mobile-inner-circle-offer-extended
Back in June, Virgin Mobile made a huge announcement that shocked a lot of people. On its announcement, the company said that they will becoming an iPhone-only carrier starting June 27th. In line with the announcement, Virgin Mobile introduced the new plan they intend to start offering: Inner Circle.

This new plan includes unlimited talk, text and data for $50/month plus taxes. There will also be an included 800 roaming minutes and 100 MB of roaming data. Video streaming, however, is limited to 480p, audio streams are throttled to 500 kbps, and gaming streams to 2 mbps. Customers who use over 23 GB of data in a month may encounter their data prioritized in times of network congestion.

When it launched its Inner Circle plan, Virgin Mobile initiated a promotion for those interested in being part of this iPhone-only plan. Customers who sign up for the plan will get six months service for just $1. It was said that the offer would only last for a month.

Just a few days after the promo ended, Virgin Mobile took to Twitter to announce that they have extended the $1 offer for another month. In addition to this promo extension, the offer is now available for the first year of service. This offer extension ends on Aug. 31, 2017.

The $1 plan does not include taxes. Once the promotional service period ends, the regular $50/month rate is applicable. The offer is also available only with AutoPay.

If you are interested in getting an iPhone with Virgin Mobile, you can choose from the iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus.

Despite its announcement of becoming an iPhone-only carrier, Virgin Mobile has released a statement addressing its Android customers. The carrier said that existing Android customers will continue to have access to their device and services by signing into My Account. Online device upgrades for Android customers will also continue to be offered until next year. They have also partnered with Boost Mobile to accommodate their Android customers as they switch to another Sprint network carrier. By switching to Boost Mobile, customers may continue to use their current phone and plan from Virgin Mobile.

  1. I wouldn't go for it unless the offer included free service for life.

    You know, like RingPlus.

    Except because Virgin is a direct subsidiary, there's no excuse for them crying about the cost of providing service.

    1. Good point. RingPlus acutallly charged a fair price for the significantly inferior Sprint network experience.

  2. I got Inner Circle for my nephew, and he loves his new SE. On track to use 9 GB the first month, and save $38 vs his 2Gb Ting plan. His monthly tax is 8c and is subtracted every month from the $1 payment, which was applied as an account credit.

  3. Sprint has the worst coverage in my area and I live in a metro area. That alone takes them out of my consideration regardless of any "deal" they may offer.

      People, people STOP telling us that Sprint does not work in your area.
      We all know that not every carrier works everywhere.

      If it does not work for you, then leave, if it does work for you then stay.

      Thats it

    2. Excited Wirelesser why does it bother you when peopel share their experiences? They are free to do so just like you are shilling for Sprint. The forum is not a dictatoship so all comments are welcome so long they dont involve bullying or profanity, insults and such.
      I believe the OP has a point. If Sprint doesnt work in a Metro are where most carriers should have better reception then that says something about overall coverage. Of course not all carriers work everywhere but some are worse than others, Sprint finding itself alone in very last place now that T-mobile is improving fast!

  4. Would be a good deal if they would honor their new unlock policy and not make it a pain to get it unlocked. People have reported needing hours of calls to get someone to unlock their phones.

    1. Why would a Carrier that subsidized your phone would intentionally make unlocking easy?

      Delete
    2. Because after the "contract" time has expired, the user should be able to easily request and get unlocking done just like with ATT.

  5. over priced iPhones and garbage data speeds? Sprint can't even give their service away for a dollar! what a joke

    1. You get what you pay for with an iPhone.

    2. apple phones are like honda cars and nike sneakers: highly over-rated and grossly over-priced.
      use your brain and leave the cult. save lots of money is a bonus!

    3. This is typically a "sour grapes" attitude. Those who don't want to pay more to get more fibbing about the better good they are unwilling or unable to pay for.

      This is certainly true of such much sniping at iPhones, such as the comment above. The quality and features really are a cut about just about everything else. And much less 'splody

      As for Honda, you get what you pay for there, too: a much better product that, yes, costs more. The cars better than Honda tend to makes like BMW and Porsche, while all American cars are significantly worse.

      I don't know about the shoes, so, unlike some, I won't comment on Nike. Other than to say that it really doesn't belong on this list along with these very complicated and well discussed consumer products.

      Now, remember, just because you are unwilling to pay the necessary price to get something better, you aren't fooling anyone with petulent whining that confuses "too good for me to afford it" with "it must suck because of that".

  6. I've had better luck with TracFone CS than Sprint's CS.

  7. I was on Sprint from 2000 till 2005. From 2005 till date in 2017 I am on T-Mobile. I want to take this offer (but freaking out!)

  8. There are areas where verizon does not work but att does and areas where att does nit work and verizon does. Sprint will work in most places but the upload and download speeds vary in different areas from 0.05 to 12 mbps within a quarter mile from each other. Does anyone know if this promotion is usable by transferring a google voice number instead of an actual carrier?

    1. stop spreading lies! sprint will NOT work in most places! its literally the most frustrating service on the planet! im suprised there is not a class action law suit against them for their commercials that tell us that they are within one percent of other networks bc its all lies

      Delete
    2. This is no lie. I've had some form of Sprint service since 2005. It does not work everywhere but has worked for me where I live and most places I've visited.

      Most of the time I've been on a dirt cheap MVNO; PlatinumTel, Ring Plus or FreedomPop with a cost of between zero and $5 per month. If I'm traveling somewhere I know there's no Sprint coverage (Alaska, Northern CA coast, Nevada desert), I'll to activate an AT&T based SIM for a month for between $10 and $50. But that hasn't been necessary most of the places I've visited including LA, central CA, Salt Lake City, Reno, Las Vegas, Chicago, New Orleans, Denver, Colorado Springs, Bend and Coos Bay OR, Milwaukee and NE WI. I've saved thousands relying on the Sprint network.

      Sprint doesn't work for everyone but it does for millions and for those that do it's often the most cost effective option.

      It Sprint doesn't work for you, fine don't use it but that's no reason to post multiple repetitive comments on every post about a Sprint based dervice..

    3. "stop spreading lies! sprint will NOT work in most places!"

      Actually, at least on the postpaid end, it's true. They have a roaming agreement with Verizon.

    4. Sprint users may now find themselves roaming on AT&T as well

    5. Dennis: Please post the new Virgin Mobile Inner Circle coverage map in your Coverage Maps for All Prepaid Carriers. It is NOT the same as Boost. It is the same as Sprint Postpaid! Inner Circle members get the Sprint Extended Network voice and data coverage from Sprint's network partners included in their plan. This coverage is not limited. Inner Circle members also get voice and data roaming coverage on Verizon and regional networks, up to 800 minutes and 100MB per month. The TOS says they may cancel if you exceed those amounts, but I don't think the phone just stops working in roaming areas if you go over the limits (we don't want to lose free 1 yr. service by testing this).
      If you want to see the Extended and roaming networks, check zip code 49855, where Sprint has no network. Boost's coverage map does not show Extended network coverage there, only roaming. Virgin Inner Circle and Sprint maps show the Extended network available for voice and data, plus roaming areas.

    6. Extended is just another name for roaming. It may be billed differently but it's not on the Sprint network and that makes it roaming.

      Delete
    7. Extended network is roaming, but the agreements are better with these network partners. Virgin Inner Circle allows mobile data use over a much bigger geographic area, the problem Sprint coverage bots complain about the most.
      Why not add the Virgin Inner Circle map? It shows the much wider data coverage, and voice roaming areas that are not limited to 50 minutes/month like they are on Boost?

  9. Another consideration
    Aug. iPhone 7 with $1 Inner Circle Plan
    Sept. New iPhone with $50 Inner Circle Plan

  10. Had a conversation with VM CS person yesterday about the plan and unlocking. She said after 14 days, they would unlock and that would take up to 48 hours. Also, if traveling outside US and using EU SIM, you would still retain the plan after return.

  11. I have been with Boost Mobile for years(owned by Sprint). I have not had any problems where I live(west Texas)with Sprint service I've been out in the boonies of the patch and service not the the carriers are the same way T-Mobile won't work out the boonies or a lot of places for matter. Just my two cents.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love how people try to prove a fact using anecdotes. Truth is just because it works or doesn't work for you, doesn't mean it will not work for anyone else. One person doesn't make the whole population. This "my network is better than yours" is ridiculous. As far as Apple, I dont think they are necessarily better than Android but can certainly be more costly. If you can not afford or don't want to waste your money on it, go ahead. Everyone is free to do with their money as they wish. Both Apple and Android are good products.
