Virgin Mobile will soon begin selling the pre-paid iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S at their retail locations. On Thursday, they began selling Apple’s smartphone online. By tomorrow (Friday), they will be selling them at a few new stores. This will be something of a test market.
If the iPhone does well at the new retail locations, Virgin Mobile will begin selling the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S nationwide.
Of course, skipping the contract can come at a price. The iPhone 4S is $649 for a 16GB while the iPhone 4 is $549 for 8GB. Of course it’s nice not to have to worry about a contract for the next two years.
Just this week, Cricket began selling prepaid iPhones as well.
