Virgin Mobile announced today that it will begin offering the iPhone 5 to subscribers starting on June 28. Subscribers will be able to buy the device at the Virgin Mobile website, at Radio Shack and at Virgin Mobile stores.

The iPhone 5 will be available on Virgin Mobile's Beyond Talk plan which offers users unlimited data and messaging for just US$35 a month. Even better, customers who sign up for Auto Pay will receive a $5 discount every month.

According to Virgin Mobile's press release (below), only the 16 GB iPhone 5 will be available online at Virgin Mobile dealers. That being the case, if you're looking for an iPhone with more storage, you'll have to hop online to order the device.

The 16 GB iPhone will go for $549.99 while the 32 GB and 64 GB models will retail for $649.99 and $749.99 respectively.

Lastly, interested consumers should be aware that the Beyond Talk plan offers unthrottled 3G and 4G data with a 2.5 GB/month cap. Once a user uses up his 2.5 GB allotment, data speeds go down to a paltry 256Kbps for the remainder of the monthly billing cycle.
