Virgin Mobile has been making some big announcements lately. First off, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is finally coming to the no-contract U.S. mobile carrier.
Virgin Mobile has announced the pricing for Apple’s newest iPhones. The iPhone 6s costs $549.99 while the iPhone 6s Plus costs $649.99. If you don’t have the full amount, Virgin Mobile will give you more time to pay by making monthly payments with PayPal Credit, subject to credit approval. Customers can only purchase two iPhones per household by credit card only.
In addition, Virgin Mobile also gives you the option to get paid to trade your old iPhone for the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. Customers can earn up to $300 in account credit with the Virgin Mobile Buyback pay.
Of course, the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus won’t be available until September 25 in Apple stores, U.S. mobile carriers, and online retailers. But you still have the option to choose between the two phones, along with an option of three storage capacities: 16GB, 64GB or 128GB, along with four different color options: black, white, gold, or rose gold. The rose gold is already in short supply since it’s so popular.
Virgin Mobile has also announced four new pricing plans for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The plans range from $30 phone plan to the $100 phone plan.
Even if you’re not on the market for the iPhone 6s, you may be excited by Virgin Mobile’s increased data plan. Virgin Mobile announced on Thursday, September 17, that their rate plans now include high-speed data for no additional cost. Virgin Mobile’s basic plan of $35 per month includes 1GB of data, which is four times bigger than its allotment of 250MB, according to a previous report via AndroidGuys.
The $45 monthly plan includes 3GB of data per month. It used to allow for 1GB of data per month. And lastly, Virgin Mobile has increased the $55 per month option from 3GB per month to 8GB per month.
Virgin Mobile runs on the Sprint network, which means that customers will now have access to unlimited data. The only catch for these new plans is that once you hit the threshold for your monthly plan, you will have to go back to 2GB for the remainder of your monthly billing cycle.
Virgin Mobile also announced that it will now sell the new LG Tribute 2, the 4.5-inch Android smartphone that costs $100. This flagship phone also includes a five-megapixel camera, 8GB storage, and microSD expansion card slot, making it an affordable smartphone for Android lovers.
