Virgin Mobile cuts prices on contract-free iPhone 5s, 5c models
Sprint subsidiary <a href="http://www.virginmobileusa.com">Virgin Mobile</a>, which sells CDMA iPhone models without an obligation to a monthly contract, is running a sale on both the <a href="http://www.virginmobileusa.com/shop/cell-phones/iphone5c-blue-phone/features/">iPhone 5c</a> and <a href="http://www.virginmobileusa.com/shop/cell-phones/iphone5s-gold-phone/features/?intid:AB:HERO2:140210:BT:WebExclusive:20pctoff:iP hone5s:SN">iPhone 5s</a>, with the 16GB 5c starting at $315, with the 32GB at $385. The iPhone 5s is available for $385 (16GB), $455 (32GB) or $525 (64GB). There is a catch to the offer: the iPhones are all locked to Virgin Mobile, and the carrier doesn't unlock the phones. Under current US law, it is illegal to unlock a carrier-locked smartphone without the company's blessing.

This makes the phones extremely difficult to resell or use elsewhere, but buyers enjoy the advantage of very low-priced monthly plans, which start at $30 per month and all feature unlimited data. Over the course of a typical iPhone active lifespan (a two year "contract" period), users could save more than $1,000 compared to a traditional contract-and-iPhone-plan obligation with unlimited data. No end date for the sale has been revealed, but a "free delivery" option suggests the promotion may disappear after March 28.

I would love to try Virgin Mobile, but they don't offer a bring your own phone option. No unlocking is a dealbreaker.
