[Rumor] Virgin Mobile To Offer iPhone On PrePaid Plans Starting July 1st

Just last week Cricket Wireless announced that they would be offering the iPhone starting June 22nd. Soon after rumors flourished that Boost Mobile would also land a prepaid iPhone. Today another rumor has surfaced in favor of Virgin Mobile…

According to MarketWatch, Virgin Mobile will carry the iPhone on their inexpensive prepaid plans starting July 1st.

The Overland Park, Kan., carrier will announce this week it will offer the popular smartphone on its Virgin Mobile pay-as-you-go brand starting as soon as July 1, according to people familiar with the company’s plans. Sprint follows Leap Wireless International Inc. in selling the device with prepaid service.

By offering the iPhone, Sprint may help satisfy its commitment to Apple to buy $15.5 billion of the phones over four years, an aggressive bet as more carriers are getting access to the once-exclusive device. Sprint’s prepaid service, which also includes the Boost Mobile brand, has been its lone area of growth as contract customers have fled.

There’s no official word on pricing details, but rumors say Sprint will announce the Virgin Mobile iPhone offering to customers later this week. If this along with the other rumored prepaid carrier happens, the iPhone will be exposed to an exponentially bigger market.

      Lol yeah well just an FYI it seems like a likely move. Sprint owns Virgin Mobile and they promised Apple $15.5 billion dollars worth of iPhone sales over the next four years. Putting an iPhone on their prepaid company would definitely help those units move…
