iPhone Price Cuts for Boost, Virgin

iphone 5

As expected, Sprint’s prepaid brands Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile have announced price cuts on the older iPhone models. This reduced price is labeled as ‘limited time’ on Virgin Mobile’s website, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the prices to drop permanently soon following the recent release of the popular (and maybe slightly bendable) iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this year.

Interestingly enough, the prices of phones for Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile isn’t the same. Virgin Mobile has reduced their iPhone by 10% – 30% (depending on how much storage you want) while Boost just has a reduced price. Here’s the breakdown:

Virgin Mobile iPhones

  • iPhone 4s (8 GB) – $199.99 (was $349.99)
  • iPhone 5c (16 GB) – $314.99 (was $444.99
  • iPhone 5s (16 GB) – $404.99 (was $549.99)

Boost Mobile iPhones

  • iPhone 4s (8GB) – $199.99 (was $299.99)
  • iPhone 5c (16GB) – $349.99 (was $449.99)
  • iPhone 5s (16GB) – $449.99 (was $549.99)

While the prices for the iPhone 4 and 5 models haven’t been officially dropped, I expect that it will happen soon. PrepaidPhone News reported that Apple cut the prices of their 5c and 5s models by $100 with the launch of the iPhone 6 and as the newest iPhone moves to MVNOs, I expect the prices will continue to drop in favor of the new model.
