Today is the day! The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S for Virgin Mobile are now available at your local RadioShack store! Why is that a big deal? It’s the first time you can get this amazing smartphone without signing a 2-year contract, and Virgin Mobile has some great rate plans that’ll save you money each month.
To celebrate the launch, we want you to tell ALL your friends on Twitter about this great deal! Follow @RadioShack on Twitter, then use the box at the bottom of the post to RT and you’ll be entered to win an iPhone 4S prize pack that includes an Otterbox case to protect the phone, a pair of iSport headphones to jam out with, and an Enercell Portable Power bank, to keep your phone charged up anywhere!
For the iPhone, Virgin Mobile offers unlimited messaging and unlimited data on all of their plans, but you can save some money if you don’t need unlimited minutes. Here’s a quick look at their Beyond Talk plans:
You can also save an additional $5/month with Virgin Mobile if you set up your account with auto-renew by adding a credit card. This makes it easy, so you don’t have to remember to pay your bill – Virgin Mobile automatically deducts your next month when it’s time.
Since the iPhone is available on so many carriers, it can be difficult to decide the best option for you. Luckily, our friends at PCWorld did the math and put together this handy chart that compares the cost of the iPhone 4S across the major carriers:
As you can see, over the course of 2 years, you would save at least $300 with Virgin Mobile!
At RadioShack, we also make it easy for you to save on the iPhone itself, too. For a limited time, if you use your Shack Card to get the iPhone 4S from Virgin Mobile (or any purchase over $300), you’ll automatically get a $50 Visa gift card back by mail. You can apply for a Shack Card online, or you can get setup right there in the store.
The other great way to save on the iPhone 4S from Virgin Mobile is with RadioShack’s Trade and Save program. Simply bring in your old phone (you get more if you bring the charger, as well) and trade it in for up to $300 in INSTANT savings on your new phone! It’s all done right there in the store, none of that mail-in nonsense.
