    Sprint's Virgin Mobile Becomes The Second Carrier To Offer A Prepaid iPhone



    TechCrunch
    Poor T-Mobile. It was one thing when the iPhone was only available at AT&T, but then Verizon got it, and then Sprint, and then the bar dropped quite a bit as U.S. Cellular got it, and most recently
    Cricket Wireless joined ranks


    offering the iPhone as an unlocked prepaid device. But now, Sprintís Virgin Mobile has taken on the device, according to the
    WSJ


    .

    Again, poor T-Mobile. But enough of that; back to
    Virginís iPhone


    . (That sounds a bit like a Judd Apatow movie, right?)
    We still donít know how much the carrier will ask for the unlocked device, but we can expect something close to Cricketís $499 price tag, for competitivenessís sake. Itís also unclear whether or not Boost, another one of Sprintís prepaid carriers, will carry the device.

    See, Sprint owes Apple $15.5 million for the iPhone, as detailed in a contract they drafted around the launch of the iPhone 4S. Because of this, it only makes sense that the carrier would try to sell the device through as many channels as possible. That said, I expect to see an
    prepaid iPhone on Boost eventually


    , too.

    Itís also unclear if Virgin will be offering the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or both.

    Virgin Mobileís prepaid iPhone will be available starting July 1, a little over a week after Cricket releases their model.
