Virgin Mobile starts selling Apple's iPhone 4, iPhone 4S

The smartphones are available with no contract and no fees for activation. But that means customers will need to pay $550 or $650 to get them.

As promised, Virgin Mobile has started selling Apple's iPhone to its prepaid customers.

Customers looking to get their hands on the device can opt for the 8GB iPhone 4 or the 16GB iPhone 4S. The former will set customers back $550, while the iPhone 4S will cost $650. As one might expect, based on those prices, they come with no contract and no fees for activation.

Virgin Mobile announced earlier this month that it would start carrying Apple's iPhone . The company says that it's available to prepaid customers with its Beyond Talk unlimited data and messaging plans, starting at $35 per month. Virgin Mobile is offering a $5-per-month discount to customers who set up automatic monthly payments with the company. The iPhones run on the Sprint Nationwide Network.

Apple is now offering its device to a host of carrier networks, including major companies, like AT&T and Verizon, and lesser-known services like Leap Wireless' Cricket. However, the company has yet to bring its iPhone to T-Mobile's service. And with each new addition, that omission is becoming increasingly glaring.
