Prepaid Nokia Shorty for Free with $25 Airtime Purchase

September 23, 2006 in Nokia Phone Deals

Virgin Mobile isn’t exactly the first place I’d go for prepaid service. Considering the fact that they’re on the Sprint Network anyway. But this seems like a pretty decent deal IF you have the guts and the gumption to see it through.

The Nokia Shorty Deal

The Nokia Shorty Deal

Currently there’s a deal on the Virgin web site that gives you a free Nokia Shorty phone (basic entry level candy bar phone with speakerphone) if you purchase $25 of airtime. That in itself is a decent deal. If you’re lazy you might as well stop here.

However, Virgin also has a nice deal where you can refer your friends to get bonus airtime. The first friend you refer will give you $10, and every one past the second one will give you an additional $20. And it seems you’re allowed to refer yourself.

So here’s the plan. Buy the two phones, refer yourself on the first one and then your second purchased phone next, and get $80 worth of airtime for $50. Then you can opt to sell one of the phones off say, fleabay (going for about 20 bucks), and there you go: 1 Nokia Shorty + $80 worth of airtime for a measly $30. If you don’t even need the phones and just the airtime you can sell both phones and end up paying anywhere from $0 to $10.
