iPhone 5 Coming to Virgin Mobile Next Friday
One week from today, Apple's iPhone 5 will land on Virgin Mobile USA for a reported $550 off-contract.
Months in the making, the prepaid carrier has formally announced plans to bring the flagship Apple smartphone to its Beyond Talk plans beginning Friday, June 28th. That means unlimited 3G/4G LTE data and messaging starting at $35 per month.
Customers, the carrier said today, can also receive a $5 per-month plan discount when they register and sign up for automatic monthly payments with a credit card, debit card or PayPal account, making the iPhone 5 available on Virgin Mobile for $30 per month.
The 16GB iPhone 5, available in Black and White, will be available online from Virgin Mobile, at participating Virgin Mobile dealers, and at Radio Shack for $549.99.
The 32GB and 64GB, also in Black and White, will be available online only for $649.99 and $749.99, respectively.

If they would have had this when the iPhone 5 came out last year, I probably would have left AT&T and grandfathered in unlimited data for this plan.

Glad AT&T's choke hold is over. Not sure why Apple thought that one carrier would be better than all..slap the person who came up with that bright idea haha!

Agreed. Plus, AT&T was the only carrier to agree to apple's terms. 1 being no carrier emblem on the phone, 2 being wifi capable, 3 being apple retaining control of the software. Before then, no smartphone had wifi, and carriers had their own App Stores that you had to go through to get apps. Apple had to do what they did so that carriers would be forced to relinquish control on YOUR devices.
Also, the "unlimited", is it like straight talk? Which allows no tethering and throttles?

Tethering is offered on other devices for $15/month and gives another 1GB of unthrottled speeds; they'll probably offer it as well for the new iPhone.Member of the hackint0sh forums.
