the wireless wars are heating up. one carrier is now offering one- year of unlimited data, talk and text for just one- dollar. there are a couple catches. but overall, if you are in the market for a new phone.... and don't mind switching carriers, our tech reporter gabe slate says, it is a good deal. in his report tonight.... he shows the pros and cons of this offer. ((pkg)) if you buy a new iphone from virgin mobile they will give you a year of free unlimited data, talk and text for one dollar.not one dollar a month that's one dollar for the entire year these wireless carriers are really taking the gloves offand this surprised me.. you don't have to buy the high end iphone 7 plus for over $700 they are selling different models.. including an iphone se for $280.to get this deal you must sign up by july 31stafter the year is up
you drop to a $50 a month plan. during the first year for a dollar and after that there is no contract you cancel anytime without a termination fee.and they will unlock the phone you bought from them for free so you can take it to another carrier. gabe slate /tech reporter says: "if you're in the market for a new iphone and you don't mind switching carriers this is a hard deal to pass up. however here is a couple of things to consider"this marks the 10th anniversary of the iphone so apple is expected to unveil a fancy new 10th anniversary iphone this september with a slew of new bells and whistles so you might want to wait for that and if you're worried about virgin mobile's signal and coverage in the bay area.. that's a valid concern.. here's the deal with that. virgin mobile uses sprints towers. so wherever there is good or bad sprint service that is also how good or bad virgin mobile will be.sprint is continuing to build out their network but it is widely considered to have the least coverage compared to the other big three carriers.and. sprint will give signal priority to sprint customers meaning if you're at a big public event they will dish out signal to the sprint phones before virgin mobile onesso if you frequent big public events like concerts, pro sports games, big
