"It's nice to have an Apple device finally Prepaid!"4.5 starson by harleyy2
Save a lot of money with the $30/month plan*
Mobile Hotspot - just download an app & save $15/month
*Have to have a registered credit card auto top up each month.
Cons: Pay full price of the iPhone
Sprint 3G network is slow
Summary: Well it's definitely nice Apple finally let Sprint's prepaid network Virgin Mobile USA come out with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Even though you do pay full price for the iPhone, the savings are incredible each month! I'm registered on the $30/month plan since I entered credit card info which enables auto pay. The Mobile Hotspot feature is nice but being charged an extra $15 each month isn't the best. Just like Android phones from VM or any contract carrier....you can just download a Mobile Hotspot app on Google Play/Apple App Store & just use that...you'll save an extra $15/month.
Since Virgin Mobile USA runs through Sprint's network, the data speeds are definitely a lot slower than Verizon and AT&T but for me, even though I own my own business, I can bare with the rather slow 3G speeds....definitely not the throttled speeds. Battery life is terrible on it but I bought a battery charger thing and i keep my iPhone plugged into and it lasts the whole day for me.
Overall: Glad Virgin Mobile USA carries the iPhone and even though you have to pay full price for the iPhone, the savings are incredible each month! The data speeds are rather slow but for paying roughly $30/month for unlimited data, messaging and have 300 anytime minutes you can't complain. Battery life is bad but buy the portable charger you plug the iPhone into and you'll be set for the whole day.
