These days it's hard to get anything -- from a pizza pie to petroleum at the pump -- for just 20 bucks. Virgin Mobile USA is about to change all that with the introduction of its newest handset, the TNT! by Kyocera Wireless. A stylish Talk N' Text (get it?) phone in a flip form factor, the TNT! is perfect for consumers who like the simple things in phones. The TNT! is now available at major retailers nationwide including Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy and Radio Shack, and will be available at www.virginmobileusa.com beginning August 20.
The TNT! has a soft-to-the-touch feel but also conveys style and a sense of durability, a perfect on-the-go accessory, all at the powerful price point of $20.
According to Matias Monges, Virgin Mobile USA's director of mobile devices, the TNT! is designed for consumers who need a reliable and attractive phone, without blowing up their wallets. "At Virgin Mobile USA we are committed to giving our customers value, service and choice they can't find anywhere else. The TNT! is a perfect embodiment of that philosophy, and shows that we can deliver it all -- from robust gear like the Wild Card from Kyocera to less expensive devices that still excel at getting the job done with style."
This affordable mobile phone brings yet another cost-effective and attractive product to Virgin Mobile USA's lineup, again offering customers a desirable handset that comes with flexible monthly plans and no annual contract. Virgin Mobile USA customers have access to a variety of calling and messaging plans without annual contracts, including the recently introduced Totally Unlimited voice plan that provides unlimited calling for $79.99 without roaming charges, activation fees or a two-year commitment.
"When it comes to style, features and performance, people are getting more than their money's worth with the TNT!" said Tom Maguire, divisional vice president of global marketing at Kyocera Wireless Corp. "Virgin Mobile USA's commitment to providing its customers incredible value extends beyond just its service plans and into its handset lineup as well. The TNT! is the latest in a long line of Kyocera phones at Virgin Mobile that deliver on this promise."
Here are a few features of the TNT! handset:
-- Sleek and small, this flip phone measures 3.5" x 1.8" x 0.6" -- all at less than 3 ounces and about the size of half a candy bar, the phone fits perfectly in the palm of the hand.
-- Designed by Kyocera Wireless and includes an external display with illuminating external caller ID
-- Comes preloaded with an array of playful games, along with downloadable animated and Real Music ringtones.
-- Sports the powerful Virgin Mobile USA user interface and Virgin XL, which means it works as great as it looks.
-- Up to 200 minutes of talk time and 5 days of standby time on a single charge, plus room for 250 contacts ensures you'll be as connected as you can possibly need to be.
