Virgin Mobile has just announced that the iPhone 4 and 4S will be available on June 29th with unlimited data and messaging plans starting at $30 per month. I guess that should make some people happy right? Go get an iPhone with unlimited data on the cheap! it does say unlimited but the fine print says something about a 2.5gb ‘fair usage policy’ so I’m guessing that it means it’s not really unlimited now is it?! I wonder what it would take to get these cellular companies, all of them, not just Virgin, to actually be honest and stop calling them ‘unlimited’ data plans when they really aren’t… 

Virgin Mobile USA announced today it will offer iPhone to its prepaid customers beginning Friday, June 29. Virgin Mobile will offer iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with its Beyond Talk unlimited data and messaging plans as low as $301 per-month on the Sprint® Nationwide Network2. iPhone will be available without a contract and with no fees for activation or roaming. New and existing customers can purchase iPhone at www.virginmobileusa.com, RadioShack, Best Buy and select local retailers.

iPhone 4S is the most amazing iPhone yet, packed with incredible features including Apple’s dual-core A5 chip for blazing fast performance and stunning graphics; an all-new camera with advanced optics; full 1080p HD resolution video recording; and Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking. iPhone 4S comes with iOS 5.1, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, and iCloud, a breakthrough set of free cloud services that work with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC to automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and push it to all your devices.
