We’ve spotted a bunch of killer iPad deals this week, including one on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. You’ll find those hot buys, plus a free year of iPhone service and more, in this week’s grab bag of best Apple deals.
In an effort to regain relevancy in the ridiculously competitive mobile network space, Virgin Mobile CEO Richard Branson revealed today that his company is going all-in on iPhone.
Virgin Mobile is set to become the first-ever iPhone-only carrier and to kick things off the company is offering a deal for Apple fans that just might convince them to switch from one of the major networks.
If you want to switch over to Virgin Mobile from your existing network for its low prices, you’ll have to go Windows Phone or Android: Sprint’s pre-paid subsidiary seems to have stopped selling the iPhone.
In the U.S., Virgin Mobile has reduced its unsubsidized iPhone prices by 10 percent in a time-limited, Web exclusive offer — meaning that you can pick up a 16gB iPhone 5s for $494.99: representing $154 less than the unsubsidized handset cost from Apple’s Online Store.
As expected, the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c are now available on Boost Mobile — alongside the iPhone 4S. The former starts at $550 for a 16GB model, while the iPhone 5c is $100 less at $450. The iPhone 4S starts at just $300.
But if you pick up your new handset before November 24, you’ll get a cool $100 off that price.
Boost Mobile has today confirmed that as of November 8 it will become the third prepaid carrier in the U.S. to offer the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. The news comes almost a month after posters advertising the devices on Boost Mobile were leaked.
The iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c are to make their debut on Cricket on October 25, the carrier announced today. Customers won’t be able to pre-order the device in advance, but you can register your interest on Cricket’s website if you wish to receive details on pricing and more before the devices go on sale.
The iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c will soon be available on Boost Mobile, according to two promotional posters that have been leaked today. Both devices will be supported by Boost’s Shrinking Payments plans, but their official release dates and price tags are yet to be confirmed.
