Virgin Confirms They Will Sell iPhone 4

Share:

In a move that is not surprising at all, Virgin Mobile has announced on their website that they will also be selling the iPhone 4 when it launches in Canada. Why is this not surprising? Because Virgin Mobile Canada is a subsidiary of Bell Mobility. Following suit of other carriers, no exact pricing or release date details were announced.

Rogers, and their “low cost brand” Fido have already announced they will carry the iPhone 4, along with Telus. Given that all of the major carriers will be launching the next iPhone, it is no surprise their smaller “no frills” brands will carry them too.

All we need to do now is wait for the iPhone 4 to come to Canada. The ‘Big 3’ have mentioned “coming weeks” in their press releases, which can be interpreted as mid or late July. If this schedule holds true, possible launch dates include either July 23rd or 30th, which would be approximately one month after the June 24th USA launch.

Today, our friends in the USA get to pre-order the iPhone 4. Anybody out there going to get an “Amerifriend” to pre-order one today?

    Btw, from Apple website (Canada) it states that if the phone is bought from their online store commitment free, it will work with any carrier that supports its frequency — that means the phone is unlocked ! I don't think this was the case previously, right ?

    Just thought of this – it may be a case that if you buy it through one of our wireless providers with the subsidized price, it may be locked to that carrier for the duration of the contract. (or until you pay the early termination fee). But if you pay the full Apple price it'll be unlocked.

    Even outright, the iPhone is still locked to a carrier. You just get
    to choose which one.

    If you can provide a link, that would be great, as at this time, the
    iPhone cannot be purchased from the Apple Canada Online Store

    I don't see the iPhone 4 link? The 3GS yes, but not the iPhone 4.
