Virgin Mobile has announced that it will join the list of U.S. mobile virtual network operators that carry the latest smartphones from Apple. The carrier will begin selling the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C next week. Pricing details have not yet been released, but Virgin sells it will sell the phone without a contract, so customers will have the option to pay full price for the device and be able to use either phone without having to worry about termination fees. (Of course, there will still be a tether of sorts because the phone is tied to Virgin Mobile.)
The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be available starting Tuesday, October 1. Customers who sign-up for a Virgin Mobile No-Contract plan can get service for plans ranging from $35 to $55 per month. Virgin operates on Sprint's network and offers 2.5GB of 4G WiMAX or 4G LTE data per month (depending on phone and location). More information is available at virginmobileusa.com/iphone/
