Contract-averse consumers itching for an iPhone 5 fix and wary of T-Mobile’s brave new ways can now look to Virgin Mobile. The prepaid carrier has just announced plans to bring Apple’s aluminum-bodied smartphone to its lineup starting next Friday, June 28th. The iOS device will be paired with Virgin’s Beyond Talk plans, netting subs unlimited data (3G / 4G LTE) and messaging for $35 per month on the base tier. Only the 16GB model will be sold online and in-store for $550, so if you’re in the market for larger storage, you’ll have to head to the carrier’s site where the 32GB and 64GB units — priced at $650 and $750, respectively — will be available. If you’re tempted to go all in and plunk down the cash, just keep in mind, there’s another better, potentially bigger and definitely ‘S’-ier iPhone waiting just around the corner.
