Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile to Accept iPhone X Orders Soon

Boost Mobile Virgin Mobile iPhone X Order
Earlier today, lots of people woke up extra early just so they can preorder the latest and greatest iPhone model, the iPhone X. Even though the phone won't be shipped until November 3rd, many already acted to ensure they are among the first to receive their device when it becomes available.

And fortunately for those who woke up real early today, they were able to preorder the device. Due to the huge number of people who wanted to preorder the latest iPhone X, the initial supply slated for release on November 3rd sold out in just 17 minutes. Those who were unable to be part of this initial batch can expect their new device to be shipped within 2-5 weeks.

If you missed this opportunity to score the iPhone X early, you can head over to Virgin Mobile or Boost Mobile to order your new smartphone. However, you won't be able to pre-order the iPhone X until November 3rd (Virgin Mobile) and November 10th (Boost Mobile). You can then expect the device to be shipped on November 10 (Virgin Mobile) and most likely on November 17th (Boost Mobile).

Once you buy the iPhone X through Virgin Mobile, you can then sign up for their "Inner Circle" plan which will give you unlimited talk, text, and data for $50 per month. However, video streaming quality is limited to just 480p resolution while music streaming is up to 500 kbps. Games streaming is at up to 2 Mbps. Once you use over 23GB of data in a billing cycle, you will be deprioritized during network congestion.

Meanwhile, when you opt for buying the iPhone X from Boost Mobile, you will have to choose between a $35 plan with 3GB of full-speed data or the $50 unlimited tier.

  1. Purchase a locked iPhone X through boost mobile might devalued the phone. I rather buy from apple or virgin mobile.

  2. Buying a phone that's locked to a soon-to-be-shuttered carrier is a bad idea.

    The T-mobile variant would be a better investment, considering Sprint's about to get swallowed up by Big Magenta.

    1. thats silly the atat / tmobile version of all the iphone 8 8 plus X are intel chipsets which make them slower in speed tests, Also incompatible with all world networks. the sprint / verizon 8 8 plus X are the snapdragon chipset which is compatible with almost every network in the world . the sprint verizon model will work on atat or tmobile but but the tmobile atat version will not work on verizon or sprint. So buy the virgin or boost unit and just unlock it.

    2. I agree the CDMA iPhone 7-10 are better buys since they are Universal. But Apple has been throttling the Qualcomm LTE modems, and the Intel XMM 7480 can hit a peak 600 megabits/sec anyway, far beyond what networks are delivering. The upcoming Intel 7560 will hit a peak 1 gigabit/sec, so the gap is narrowing.

    3. Apple is considering moving completely to chips from Intel and possibly MediaTek, Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. Qualcomm and Apple are still locked in legal combat over licensing fees. This could change if the lawsuits are resolved.

  3. They need more android phones in the $200-$300 range. They have cheap phones and expensive phones. They have the perx for $150 then it goes all the way up to $500 for the galaxy s7. That gap is too big

    1. Any company other than Apple has phones in the $200 to $400 range. And it is easy to find the Galaxy S6 for $300. Just look harder: the mid range is quite well populated with devices.

    2. Boost used to be all cheap phones that were outdated by 2 years. Then the apple and att 5 year exclusive deal ended and boost was able to sell a 2 year old iphone. Selling iphones new for full price does not work for most boost mobile customers when postpaid carriers allow iphone payments each month. There will not be many boost mobile customers going to boost mobile retail bodegas with $1170 in cash to buy the iphone x they will buy the samsung j3 for $60 instead

    3. Yeah, I am not sure there is much of a meeting point between those willing to put up with the phone not working most of the time in most places on Boost in order to save money, and those who want to pay to dollar for a super phone like the iPhone X.

  4. Prepaid carriers need to start offering instalment plans for $1,000 phones. Phones like this really aren't meant to be paid for in full upfront.

    1. Boost offers a phone financing plan called BoostUp!. Cricket and Straight also offer phone financing.

  5. Who says this phone is going to be locked. Plus, the iPhone x will have all the requisite bands to run on all four major networks

    1. Every single Boost and Virgin phone has been sold locked. There's no reason to think the iPhone X will be any different.

    2. You might be able to get an unlock from boost after a year or so of payments. But even then a carrier unlocked is not the same as a factory unlock.

    3. Virgin Inner Circle says they will unlock the iPhones they sell after 14 days of use (end of return period). Better to buy from them than Boost. Boost offers no roaming for iPhones.

    4. The best way to use an iPhone on Virgin is to buy it unlocked from the Apple Store on payments, activate it on another carrier, than BYOD it to Virgin Inner Circle. You get 6 months of free unlimited service, saving $300 plus taxes.

  6. I'm passing on the Iphone X. I am not interested in buying a phone made in China for $999. I currently have an Iphone 6S w/Virgin and will use it until it wears out.

    1. This attitude is VERY unpatriotic. All the iPhone X net profits belong to Americans! You are robbing them of their due! Get with the program. Oh, and the glass panels are probably still made by Corning Glass, LTE modems at least sold by US companies and the software might still be made in USA.

    2. There is no "robbing" being done. As for me, I choose the best product... Regardless of nation.

  7. I tried to order an iPhone X from the Apple website and chose AT&T as my carrier. After choosing all the options I was presented with a message saying the phone is sold unlocked but will only work on AT&T and T-Mobile and won't support CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint. I then went back and chose Verizon instead but it doesn't say if it supports any other carrier. Does anyone on here know if the unlocked Verizon version sold by Apple will support both CDMA and GSM carriers or does it only support CDMA carriers?
    Thanks

    1. Aww man! So we may not get unlocked phones that work on BOTH CDMA & GSM from Apple Store anymore?
      Say it ain't so Dennis, say it ain't so!

    2. Any experts on here?

    3. I'm no Apple expert, but these guys are and they explain the network compatibility of the various models here: Carrier compatibility for the various iPhone X models | 9to5Mac

    4. The Verizon and Sprint variants support GSM and therefore are universal phones that work on all four carriers. This is probably because the phones need GSM to roam internationaly. It'd be hard to sell an iPhone that only works in the US. I just don't understand why Apple bothered to make variants that don't support CDMA while still making universal models that sell for the same price.
