The rumor mill got it right.
Virgin Mobile USA announced today it will offer the iPhone to its prepaid customers beginning Friday, June 29.
Virgin Mobile will offer Apple’s hugely popular iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with its Beyond Talk unlimited data and messaging plans as low as $30 per-month on the Sprint Nationwide Network.
This release comes just one week after Cricket becomes the first U.S. carrier to offer a prepaid option for the new iPhone.
iPhone will be available without a contract and with no fees for activation or roaming. New and existing customers can purchase iPhone online, RadioShack, Best Buy and select local retailers.
“This month marks Virgin Mobile USA’s tenth birthday,” says Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group. “And what better way to thank our fans for ten years of loyalty than by giving them exactly what they want: the perfect plan for the perfect phone. That is the essence of ‘A Higher Calling.’”
