    Default Apple's iPhone Lineup Completely Removed From Virgin Mobile USA's Website

    It has been reported that ever since Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in October, Virgin Mobile USA (Sprint’s subsidiary) has had limited to no stock on the devices. They’ve had messages that noted ‘out of stock’ on the newest smartphones and has been left like that ever since. As most companies made sure they had enough units going into the holiday season, Virgin Mobile USA went into the holiday season without any devices available.

    Now, those who go to Virgin Mobile USA’s website will notice that Apple’s iPhone lineup has been completely removed from the online store. The company used to offer a webpage dedicated to the Cupertino-based company’s flagship device, featuring the lineup of unsubsidized prepaid models. Previously, you would see Apple’s iPhone 4S, 5c, and 5s being offered with prepaid plans, which required customers to use the Virgin Mobile network.

    When you search the term ‘iPhone’ now on the Virgin Mobile website, it will redirect you to links that offer the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 4S. But when you actually go ahead and click the offered link, it will just bring you to a page filled with Android devices. It is unclear as to why all iPhones have been removed from their online store, but one thing we do know is that the company is losing out on quite some business by not offering the iPhone.

    I talked with them and they're changing their pricing structure for iPhones. Originally, you could get a HUGE discount on new iPhones because they were locked to their network. But when the new rule requiring unlocking if not on a contract took effect it had to be changed. Otherwise, people would be able to buy a new iPhone 5c for $350, quit the service after a month, and be able to use the iPhone elsewhere.
