Virgin, Boost, MetroPCS announce prepaid iPhone 7 carriage

By Jules Wang September 9, 2016, 5:44 pm

Ahh, the world of prepaid smartphones. Cheap rates, but huge upfront costs with those phones. It’s why mid-ranger and budget phones flourish in this sector and they’ve been getting better and better by the month.

But admit it: you do want a flagship, too. Right?

Well, fear not. Sprint-owned prepaid brands Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA will start offering the iPhone 7 starting September 23 — one week after general sales start.

T-Mobile’s competing MetroPCS also has iPhone 7 promotional splashes on its site, but has not disclosed a date of availability. Its stores started carrying iPhones back in July.


AT&T’s Cricket has not revealed any plans to carry the iPhone 7.

As Apple has fairly tight price controls on its products, we think it’s safe to assume that you’ll be paying $649 for a 32GB iPhone 7, no matter where you pay your bills.
