If you were thinking about switching to Virgin Mobile prepaid service, now would be a good time to do that. Why? Because you can purchase the HTC EVO V at a discounted price of just $129.99 at RadioShack. It is $50 in savings when compared to the regular price of $179.99 at the carrier’s store, plus the retailer will ship the handset to you for free within two business days.

A month ago, Virgin Mobile held a Cyber Monday sale on Android phones with heavy discounts, cash back and free shipping. The offer included the Samsung Galaxy Reverb, the HTC Evo 4G, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Motorola Triumph and the HTC One V. Now the carrier is getting in festive spirit again and cuts the prices on selected prepaid handsets to a very tempting level.
This is a friendly reminder for Virgin Mobile fans what we covered just few days ago. If you’ve been waiting for a sale to grab a new Android-powered phone on Virgin Mobile network, the carrier is looking to give you the chance to get few models at very tempting prices. For a limited time you can save $100 on Samsung Galaxy Reverb and HTC Evo 4G, $70 on Samsung Galaxy S II, $80 on Motorola Triumph plus get $50 OFF on the HTC One V. In addition you can get cash back up to $22.50 on your purchase and get free shipping.
Virgin Mobile added a new promotion to its offer. The carrier cut the price down by 20% on two of its HTC smartphones – the HTC Evo V and the HTC One V. Considering their previous prices, which were $299.99 and $199.99 respectively, you can save up to $60, and have these high-end devices with no contract whatsoever. The catch is that the deal is web exclusive and applies to online purchases only.
