Virgin Mobile USA today announced that it will begin taking iPhone X pre-orders on its website on Friday, November 3. The carrier originally said it would launch pre-orders today, in line with Apple and major carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile, but evidently the date has been pushed back by one week.

Boost Mobile likewise announced that the iPhone X will be available to order on its website on Friday, November 10 in the United States.

Virgin Mobile USA's so-called "Inner Circle" plan offers unlimited talk, text, and data with a few caveats: video quality is limited to up to 480p resolution, music streams at up to 500 kbps, and games stream at up to 2 Mbps. The carrier promises 4G LTE speeds for "practically everything else."

Customers who use more than 23GB of data in a billing cycle will be de-prioritized during times and places where the network is constrained.

Mobile Hotspot is available for an additional $10 per month, providing up to eight tethered devices with a dedicated allotment of 10GB of high-speed data to share each month. Unlimited calls to Mexico and Canada, and unlimited worldwide text messaging, can also be added for $5 per month.

Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile are both subsidiaries of Sprint and share the parent company's network in the United States.

Will the Virgin Mobile phone be tied to their network, or could you switch it to AT&T (after you paid off the phone) or others?

Update. Guess I found the answer on their website. "If you decide life in the Inner Circle isn’t for you, no problem. We’ll miss you, of course, but we don’t ask for a commitment, and we mean it. Simply send your iPhone back within 14 days of purchase and we’ll give you a full refund. If you’re past the 14-day mark, you’re free to take your iPhone elsewhere."

Interesting. This would be a good way to get the superior CDMA iPhone X is you couldn't order it today.
