Some may remember that when Virgin Mobile was relaunched by Sprint as a carrier that only sells iPhone devices back in June earlier this year, Virgin also took the opportunity to introduce a limited time offer -- specifically one that promised to provide one full year of unlimited service (which includes unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data) for just $1. At that time, Virgin only meant to run the promotional deal until July 31st of this year, but when one heads to the official web page of the deal, the promo period has apparently been extended until August 31st.
For those who missed this promo the first time it was launched, here is how it works -- to avail of the special offer, interested parties must purchase any one of Apple’s iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, or iPhone SE not later than August 31st of this year. If they buy any of these iPhone models after August 31st, the free unlimited service will no longer apply for 12 months, but for half a year only. Also, those who avail of the deal must sign up for the Auto Pay option. And they should note that after their one year of unlimited service is finished, customers will be shifted automatically to the $50 a month unlimited option.
Also remember that the $1 one year unlimited service is not only made available to new customers. As a matter of fact, current customers of Virgin Mobile can take full advantage of the deal, provided of course they buy a new iPhone device. As for customers who are looking to sign up for Virgin’s Inner Circle offering, know that they will be getting plenty of added perks. These include free round trip companion airfare on Virgin Atlantic Airlines, a free night’s stay in any hotel owned by Virgin Hotel, and some generous discounts on any wine under the Virgin brand (for more information, go visit this web page).
Similar to unlimited deals offered by other carriers, Virgin Mobile’s unlimited offering actually comes with limits. Thus, when a customer goes beyond the 23 gigabyte data allotment, the data will be throttled. Moreover, voice call minutes are also capped at 800 minutes every month, while data roaming in the United States comes with a 100 megabyte cap each month. Finally, video streaming will be limited to at least 480p resolution, music streaming to 500 kbps, and streaming cloud gaming to 2 mbps.
