Apple have decided to sell the iPhone 4S in the US on pre-paid for the first time. The device will be on sale with Virgin Mobile USA and will be available from the 29th of June. Virgin Mobile USA make use of Sprint’s 3G CDMA network.
To purchase the device on pre-paid, it will cost you $649 for the 16GB iPhone 4S and $549 for the 8GB iPhone 4.
Virgin are offering month to month plans that begin at $30 per month. For the $30 per month plan, you will receive 300 minutes of voice, unlimited text and unlimited data. The $50 a month plan will give you unlimited everything including voice, data and SMS. These plans represent much better value than what we are used to in Australia.
In Australia, we are able to purchase the iPhone 4S outright which they cannot do in the USA. We do pay a little more for the device however. Our Apple iPhone 4S plans are also not as fully featured as the US.
