Although $550 is a steep price, Apple's iPhone 4 for Virgin Mobile doesn't require a two-year carrier contract. In addition, on top of the carrier's $55 monthly unlimited talk and data plan, it also has mobile hot-spot features for an extra $15 a month.

Just like the Verizon model, Virgin's iPhone 4 accommodates a CDMA antenna, so the ringer mute switch is slightly closer to the volume rocker than on AT&T's version.
