Virgin Mobile announced a couple of weeks ago that they would release the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G on their network. It is now available online along with a few participating retail outlets. Those who are looking to pick up a Galaxy S II will be look at shelling out a good $370. Virgin Mobile offers the device in two different colors — titanium and white. If you need to get a data plan with the device, Virgin Mobile offers some very cheap ones. Their “Beyond Talk” plans start at a mere $35 per month for unlimited messaging and data. Before I hopped on AT&T I used Virgin Mobile as my carrier. They do indeed have unlimited data and messaging, but keep in mind that they throttle your speeds after your exceed 2GBs of data or so.
