Virgin Mobile to offer iPhone this month Virgin Mobile, the prepaid subsidiary of Sprint, has announced they will begin selling the iPhone this month.
The move will help Sprint reach its $15.5 billion commitment to Apple over the next few years.

Being prepaid, Virgin customers do not have to commit to a contract, but also pay full price for their devices.

Virgin customers will have to pay $649 up front for the iPhone 4S, compared to $200 on most major carriers with contract.

The company will begin selling the device on June 29th, a week after rival Leap Wireless does. Leap will charge less upfront but their monthly fees are higher.

Virgin iPhone plans start at $30 per month while Leap charges $55 minimum.

Wow even the small CDMA carriers are getting the iPhone now. T-Mobile is in serious trouble if they don't get it this year.
