iPhone 5 Virgin Mobile coming soon

After launching both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S a little over a year ago, Virgin Mobile announced today that it'll soon be expanding its iOS offerings with the iPhone 5. The Sprint MVNO says that it'll begin selling Apple's latest iPhone in both black and white on June 28, which is just one week from today. Pricing will be set at $549 for the 16GB model, $649 for the 32GB version and $749 for the 64GB variant. Virgin notes that only the 16GB iPhone 5 will be available in stores, meaning that customers will need to hop online if they want a more capacious model.

As far as plans go, the iPhone 5 will be compatible with Virgin Mobile's no-contract Beyond Talk plans. Those offerings start at $35 per month for 300 minutes as well as unlimited messaging and data (2.5GB of high-speed data). There's also a $45 per month plan with 1200 minutes and unlimited text and data or a $55 per month option with unlimited talk, text and data. Customers that sign up for automatic monthly payments can receive a $5 discount on their monthly rate.

Considering that Sprint already sells the iPhone 5 and that Virgin Mobile has been offering the iPhone 4 and 4S for over a year now, it's not a total shock to see that Apple's latest handset is making its way to Virgin's shelves. Still, it's exciting news for customers on the Sprint MVNO, especially since the iPhone 5 supports 4G LTE connectivity. Are any of you Virgin Mobile customers prepping your credit card in anticipation of the iPhone 5's arrival next week?
