Retailer cutting $50 off iPhone 4, 4S
RadioShack has announced plans to join in tomorrow's launch of the Virgin Mobile iPhone 5. Prices will be identical to those direct from Virgin, except that RadioShack is promising $50 off the cost of the phone with a qualifying trade-in. That offer expires July 27th. If a person trades in an iPhone 4 or 4S, they can get $150 off until July 13th.
Until July 6th the company is running $50 discounts on the iPhone 4 and 4S. With a trade-in, that discount grows an additional $50.
At Virgin the iPhone 5 costs $550 for 16GB, $650 for 32GB, or $750 for 64GB. The device is being carried contract-free however, and monthly plans start at just $35 with 2.5GB of 3G/4G data. A $5-per-month discount applies for people who sign up for automatic billing.
