Virgin Mobile Starts Selling Prepaid Iphones

Problem. The vast majority of people don't pay for a phone upfront. For anyone who doesn't want contract phones this is certainly an option, but $649 upfront is alot to swallow, which is why people sign deals.
If they had the money, like that; they could go to ANY carrier t-me ATT and T-Mobile for example, pay cash and simply buy the prepay SIM plans that are cheaper than subsidized plans.
I don't think Virgin is going to sell that many. Now if you're already a Virgin users, likely you would have had time to save for this type of device and thus it will work great. For not so lucky for a new person.
Many peopel use Virgin bec Virgin doesn't require credit useyou 'rejust you're just paying month to month and you ash forthe cash for the phone. If you leave them you owe nothing bec u pay month to month you use and the phone is already yours from day one.
I wished they had the GSIII, I would likely consider them.

And I also think Virgin, Boost and Metro get no love. Last year's rock star phones ought to be sold on those carriers at blow-out prices. I could see a whole, "ROSS" like industry for tech goods cropping up that could be a very healthy business.

day., one glorious day after plopping down $554.60, plus another $105.93
for the Apple care....Its the network and it sucks and I knew it but i
took the bait and bought it...Its Sunday and Im surfing the web and
getting unable to load messages, all of this after 3 hours and 7 overseas
cricket operators who keep repeating steps 1. turn your phone off and
on. 2. turn on AP mode for 30 seconds then off and 3. Go into general
network settings and reset them.
Now I'm hearing, The problem is the iphone was never tested on Crickets network before launch.
The engineers had to discover after launch what issues there are when
they normally get a new handset a couple months ahead of launch.
I was told this week that the network is seeing iphones as flashed phones so in order to allow them 2.5 gb as advertised they had to remove the throttle for all flashed phones until it's fixed.
What a joke, its just I knew it and the jokes on me. At least talk and text still works, just like an old flashed phone!
