Cheapest way to own an iPhone 4S? Virgin Mobile.

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, June 21, 2012

The cheapest way to own an iPhone 4S.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    The latest iPhone is available with a contract from Verizon Wireless, Sprint and AT&T.   And now consumers have the choice of buying without a contract from Cricket and Virgin Mobile.   And while Virgin Mobile is charging the most for the phone itself, 649 dollars,  service costs just 30 dollars a month.   That includes unlimited messaging and data and 300 minutes of talk.   So over time, customers will save hundreds of dollars. Vice President Jeff Auman…

“You pay a little bit more up front but you certainly make up for it in your monthly service plan.  In fact if you look at our rates compared to Cricket you break even at about six months and start going positive as far as cash flow is concerned on that 30 dollar a month plan.”

The iPhones are slated to arrive on Virgin Mobile on June 29th.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
