If you’ve been meaning to purchase an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus from Virgin Mobile USA, bear in mind that you will have to wait longer than the customers who are buying it from one of the four major carriers. Virgin Mobile USA has confirmed its launch date for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It’s going to start taking pre-orders for the new smartphones from September 22nd.
Apple and its carrier partners have already started taking pre-orders for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. They will release the handsets on September 22nd, the day when Virgin Mobile starts taking pre-orders.
Virgin Mobile hasn’t explained why there’s a one-week delay particularly given the fact that carriers like U.S. Cellular will be releasing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on time. It’s going to release the handsets on September 29th.
It merits mentioning here that Apple is going to expand international distribution of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on September 29th beyond the 29 launch markets. The handsets will then be available in markets like Russia, Greece, and Poland.
Virgin Mobile recently became an iPhone-only carrier that offers a single plan. The plan provides unlimited voice, texting, and data for $1 for the first year and $50 per month after that.
Virgin Mobile has also confirmed that it’s going to start taking pre-orders for the iPhone X on October 27th, the same day Apple starts taking pre-orders for its new flagship.
