Virgin Mobile USA tease iPhone 5S and 5C as “coming soon.”

2 months ago, Sprint has acquired Virgin Mobile’s US division and iPhone 5S and 5C release for the prepaid customers will be the biggest launch for the firm ever. However, there is no any details teased such as the pricing and plans. If we see the previous model’s launch price, i.e., $550, we expect the pricing might come around $599-$649. Currently the MVNO is selling iPhone 5, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S for $549, $199 and $383.5 (after 15% offer). The original price of 4S is $450 but the company is giving a fifteen percent of discount to it’s subscribers.
