Bring an iPhone to Virgin Mobile USA, Get 12 Months of Unlimited Wireless for $1

 

Transfer your phone number with your iPhone and pay just $1 for one year of wireless service for a limited time

 

Kansas City, Mo. (Aug. 23, 2017) — Virgin Mobile® USA announced today that when you bring your existing iPhone and transfer your phone number to the “Inner Circle” plan, you will enjoy 12 months of unlimited talk, text and high-speed data for just $1 on Virgin Mobile’s nationwide network.

 

“At Virgin Mobile, we don’t like playing by the rules, even our own,” said Dow Draper, CEO of Virgin Mobile USA. “Consumers know that the Inner Circle is the real deal, but many love their current phones or don’t want to upgrade yet. So, now for a short period of time, you can bring your own iPhone to Virgin Mobile and enjoy everything the Inner Circle offers — including the savings — $1 for 12 months of service. It’s also a great way to try out the Virgin Mobile network with your own iPhone.”

 

The Inner Circle offers an exceptional value on Virgin Mobile’s awesome nationwide 4G LTE network that is faster, more reliable than ever and reaches more than 290 million people. It also features the world’s most popular phone, plus exclusive perks from the Virgin family.

 

Compared to the two-year service or device contract arrangements forced on consumers by other mobile carriers, members of the Inner Circle would pay only $601 for two years of unlimited talk, text and high-speed data compared to $1,440, $1,680 or even $1,800 with other carriers. For some consumers, that’s a savings of nearly $1,200 over two years when you take advantage of the Inner Circle by Virgin Mobile.1

 

“This is an unprecedented opportunity to get an incredible deal on wireless for a limited time,” said Draper. “Whether you bring your existing iPhone to Virgin Mobile or buy a new one, you’ll experience world-class service on our nationwide network. And it’s simple to join the Inner Circle because we eliminated the craziness of credit checks and contracts that our larger competitors require, so there’s no need to worry about long-term obligations or hidden charges.”

 

The Inner Circle will now support most of the iPhone 5s and higher models. To confirm an iPhone’s eligibility and order a Virgin Mobile Inner Circle SIM2 Card Kit, visit VirginMobileUSA.com. Once an iPhone is verified as compatible with our nationwide network, the SIM card will be shipped with simple instructions to install and activate it. For a limited time, SIM cards can be ordered for free, however, after Friday, Sept. 29, a Virgin Mobile Inner Circle SIM Card Kit will cost $25.

  

After the initial offer of service for 12 months for $1, Inner Circle members will transition to one of the mobile industry’s best values: $50 per month3 for unlimited talk, text and high-speed data on a 4G LTE national network.

 

Also, people can purchase a new iPhone and enjoy the same offer of 12 months of unlimited wireless service for only $1.

1 . After 12 months, do we have to stay with the $50 plan or can we cancel the contract? If not then how much will be the plenty to cancel?

2. What will be the speed of unlimited data? 

3. Is there any activation fee for new user?

Thanks for the questions, @aksar111 Below are some answers that I hope you find helpful:

 

1. After 12 months, do we have to stay with the $50 plan or can we cancel the contract? If not then how much will be the plenty to cancel?

Yes, you can leave at any time. And while we know that people are used to those pesky service or device contracts that other carriers force upon you, those don't exist in the Inner Circle. There is no penalty to cancel and leave at any time.

 

2. What will be the speed of unlimited data?

The unlimited data is up to 4G LTE speeds. However, Virgin Mobile will not “deprioritize” anyone simply for using 23 gigabytes in one month. People who use more than 23 GB of data per month may see speeds reduced if they are on a congested sector. If they aren’t on a congested sector and use 23 GB of data or less per month, their data speeds won’t be decreased at all.

 

3. Is there any activation fee for new user?

No. That's the great thing about the Inner Circle. No hidden fees. No gimmicks. No catch.

Lot of people can't get the deal cause it says already activated even though it is unlocked iPhone and simply on another network/carrier.

 

Can you get someone to look into it?
