HTC One V Virgin Mobile

Earlier this year, we heard that the HTC One V will be making its way to Virgin Mobile, but so far the timeframe for the handset's launch has eluded us. It turns out that Virgin's One V may not be too far out, as our pals at DroidDog have gotten word that it'll be arriving sometime in the next two weeks. Pricing is said to be around $200.

As a refresher, the One V's spec sheet includes a 3.7-inch 480x800 display, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, Android 4.0 beneath HTC Sense 4 and a chin just like HTC's Legend and Hero had before it. While these Virgin Mobile One V launch details aren't quite official just yet, $200 seems like a reasonable price for it. Here's to hoping that, if the One V is indeed coming in the next couple of weeks, the launch happens sooner rather than later, because if another recent Virgin Mobile rumor is accurate, the One V's time in the spotlight may get cut short by a certain fruit-branded phone.

Reese Woodson Nice but they should of put a FFC on it. I know everybody doesn't use FFCs, but that's like the standard now.
Elijah Ford Oh yeah,prepaid is the way,"Galaxy S2,(T-mobile)!!!!.
Tyler Kirchman I wish this phone wasn't so limited on sense 4. Why not just sense 3.6
Mike Cooper With a contract... Phone is $200 upfront, plan is at least $100 for two years = $200 + $2400 = at least $2500 for two years. Without contract... $500 phone, $50 a month = $1700. Yeah "cheaper" phones for signing ontracts are a great deal!!!!
Jeremey Brown I like Virgin Mobile,my Triumph never fails me but im definetly getting the Evo V!!!and yes its way cheaper in the long run.
Robert Allan Meh, dropping Virgin Mobile after having them for almost 3 years , data always going out $250 I spent last year on a junky Moto Triumph. Good luck with Data working on an iPhone through VM.
Ryan Gardner @Alejandro the iPhone screen is 3.5" not 3.7"
Residual Hatred I will be lining up to get the One V. $100 less than the Evo V 4g.
Alejandro Castro I wish the screen was 4 inches instead of 3'7.
Victor Torres Virgin mobile is getting the iPhone on 6/29
Jesse Ling Fact;contracts cost more in the long run.fact:prepaid devices cost more cuz you're buying upfront with no obligation to spend any more.either way they get that msrp out of you
Brandon Johnson The only thing keeping me on a post paid plan is the fact that there aren't any prepaid phones I'd ever consider buying.
Craig Arbour If you can afford the upfront cost. The prepaid option will cost you less in the long run.
Matt Polkiewicz @Brandon, you must be an idiot with your money then. Typical "buy now, pay later" mentality.
Tommy D Thompson The rumored price of the One V on Virgin Mobile is $199.....
Brandon Borrego No, I rather pay $199 for a phone on contract than $499 w/ out.
