Bring an iPhone to Virgin Mobile USA, Get 12 months of unlimited wireless for just $1

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, in a statement. “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.

“This is an unprecedented opportunity to get an incredible deal on wireless for a limited time,” added 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 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 month for unlimited talk, text and high-speed data on a 4G LTE national network.

Additionally, each time an Inner Circle member upgrades to a new iPhone, they will receive an additional six months of service for only $1. Also, people can purchase a new iPhone and enjoy the same offer of 12 months of unlimited wireless service for only $1.

Virgin Mobile USA becomes first Apple iPhone-only carrier; launches game-changing offer – June 23, 2017


  1. How is Virgin’s network coverage?

    I had T-Mobile some years back and that was the problem and the reason I left. But if Virgin has coverage like Verizon for $1 then it’s pretty easy to decide.

      1. Who are the babies with wet diapers that give a benign question (Bot’s) down votes? It’s time for your nap but you’re going to get spanked prior. Grow up-time to become an adult.

        1. I did not down vote him. I try to separate my dislike of botty from my assessment of the content that he posts. But I can understand the desire to down vote him at every opportunity.

          Besides, I don’t know why it bothers you so much. It doesn’t mean anything, really. So why get upset about someone else’s “wet diaper?” You sound almost Trumpian in your need for approval and your aversion to criticism.

          As far as botty’s avatar goes, I am confident that it will be overcome by events long before the next Presidential election picks up speed. My advice would be to take care of the current term, first, before looking ahead to 2020.

          1. Funny K-Mel, you question the Nursery b/c of their post checking unreasonable response and you tantramically (I love word creation) name action/person Trumpian. Ya know, you’ve just done the thing you scorned! Perhaps you are a closeted T supporter, or just another blind antifa activist that sees no parallel wrong in their actions/thoughts? Maybe I should warm some milk for you too? Cheetos with your milk?

          2. Botty has been relentlessly down voted for months now. Does not matter what he posts whether reasonable or unreasonable.

            I believe CitizenX is the main culprit, but with zero proof I could be wrong.

            You just came back so you may not have noticed.

            My positive association with some of Botty’s comments have thrown me in the same kettle of fish. Does not matter what I say. Down vote party! WooHoo! I could not care less.

            The reality is we have a rigged dishonest WordPress system that amounts to NOTHING in my mind.

            That said, I cannot speak for the star narcissists among us …

            1. sorta like bottwipe voted down for me supplying the link to the bring your own plan.

              No comments from me about about stupid people not looking at the bottom of the page, that it was easy to find. no snide comments… just a self explanatory link.

              Get off your high horse.

            2. An SJW mole within “WordPress” has blocked my IP address to disable my posts on MDN under the guise of “comment under moderation” separate from MDN. I simply turned on my VPN and was immediately able to post again.

              Censorship: The Libtard Way.®

            3. You thwarted leftist censorship, woohoo! You da man.

              It never ceases to amaze me. The so called open minded, liberal thinkers, highly educated, erudite consumers of culture, denizen dwellers in skyscraper canyons, accepting and defending EVERY point of view??? Ha!

              That has been long dead, gone, forgotten for decades now and political correctness killed the liberal movement — 4EVER. Welcome to the age of NEO HATE and profound INTOLERANCE.

              Silencing dissent and throwing the First Amendment out the window. Examples: Milo, AnnCoulter, Laura Ingram speaking at Berkeley or elsewhere, shutdown. Calling for the removal of historical statues and monuments. Where is your TOLERANCE and RESPECT for history, snowflakes?

              You attach only YOUR SIDE of the argument to mere symbols of lifeless metal. Symbols you and your ILK have passed by for decades without a peep. You shut down and shut out those you disagree with in a most DISRESPECTFUL manner!

              You have become what you HATE and you don’t even realize it.

              Pity, no way. Hypocrites, yes grande …

  2. I do not have any recent experience with the Sprint network. Sprint was the first provider that my wire and I had back in the mid-1990s. We stayed with Sprint for a few years, but switched to Cingular because of poor coverage. There were dead zones within our home, and coverage was spotty outside of cities. When coverage was available, however, the connection was generally excellent.

    I am on T-mobile now because of cost. Their family plan is a relative bargain, although still far more than I would like to pay. Coverage is pretty good overall, but gets spotty when traveling along interstates and such away from cities and towns. Perhaps it is time to consider switching?
