Virgin Mobile had announced a week ago that it will begin selling iPhone 5 without a contract, becoming the first U.S. carrier to do so. Rumor has it that RadioShack is one of the retail partners for the offering.
Following suite with the iPhone 4 and 4S, Virgin Mobile is going to start carrying the iPhone 5 on its prepaid network.
Virgin Mobile USA, one of Sprint’s prepaid subsidiaries, may not have a reputation for selling the cream of the Android crop, but when it comes to budget-conscious devices, the network is almost unbeatable. The latest such phone to be up for grabs via Virgin is the Samsung Galaxy Ring.
