Virgin Mobile will offer iPhone 4S, 4 on its pre-paid plans starting June 29th
Virgin Mobile USA will offer the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S on its extremely affordable pre-paid plans starting from June 29th, but you’d need to swallow the bitter pill of no subsidy and pay the full price of the iPhone. The 16GB iPhone 4S for example will set you back $649, while the 8GB iPhone 4 costs $549, a hundred less.

That’s no surprise - a pre-paid plan means you don’t get the subsidy, but in exchange you also don’t have to pay hefty monthly fees for two years.

Virgin Mobile is the first US carrier to offer the iPhone on pre-paid plans. Starting on June 29th, those wishing for freedom will be able to get the iPhone in Virgin Mobile stores, as well as RadioShack, Best Buy and other retailers.

The iPhone on Virgin is a way the carrier is celebrating its tenth US anniversary. The company’s plans start from as low as $30 and if you wonder what’s the coverage, you should know that the company roams on Sprint’s network. Check out the carriers coverage map to be completely sure you’re covered; the full press release follows below.
