Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph will be available on July 20 alongside new plans

The Motorola Triumph was announced by Virgin Mobile last month, being one of the top devices to be added to that particular carrier’s roster. The Triumph may not exactly be a pure high-end smartphone in this day and age, but it’s not underpowered by any stretch of the imagination with its 1 GHz single-core processor and 5-megapixel camera.

As is usually the case with new phone announcements, what we didn’t find out in June was how much the Triumph will cost or when it will be in stores. And while we’re still left guessing the former, we now know the latter.

Buried deep in a press release about new plans is the fact that the Motorola Triumph will become available at Virgin Mobile on July 20 – just one week from today, and one day later than what a leak had us believe at one point. That’s certainly good news for Virgin Mobile customers looking for a decent Android-powered smartphone. And since the launch is that soon, we’re bound to find out some details about pricing in a few days tops. Someone usually leaks these things, and that’s especially true the closer we get to a release date.

As for the new plans, also starting on July 20, Virgin Mobile will basically have three options for you. The cheapest will cost $35 per month (up from $25 currently) and will offer you 300 minutes and unlimited messaging and data. The next plan will be $45 per month (now $40) and it will give you 1200 minutes, again with unlimited messages and data, and the most expensive plan is going to be unlimited everything for $55 per month (down from $60 at the moment).

These are all, of course, no-contract plans, meaning that you won’t have to commit to a long-term service agreement with Virgin Mobile the way you have to with the ‘big four’ US carriers.

Those who want to keep their existing plans will be able to do just that, provided their account will remain active and they won’t request a plan change. They’ll even be able to upgrade to new devices without any additional costs. The $10 per month BlackBerry Bolt-On will become free, which is great news for those of you running your BlackBerry on Virgin Mobile.

Finally, the carrier will begin throttling the data speeds of heavy users starting in October. The plans will remain unlimited and there will be no overage charges, but after hitting 2.5 GB of traffic in one month, your speed will be throttled. When the next month begins, the data speed will return to normal.

    “Those who want to keep their existing plans will be able to do just that, provided their account will remain active and they won’t request a plan change.”
    If I purchased a plan today, would I be able to keep the old pricing, or do they require previous service to do that?

    They will likely phase out the 40 dollar card because it appears they only have top up cards in the denomination of plans they currently hold.  You will likely be able to find it for a while, but as stock dwindles just start buying two 20’s I suppose. They will always keep the 20/30 for the PayLo plans, and the cards will work to top up either or.

    The price is $299. My only concern is I pre-ordered it and was told it would be delivered 7/19 to 7/26. Does that mean the stores will have them on the 19th while pre-orders may take as long as the 26th to get it? Not life or death but usually when you pre-order an item you are supposed to get something more out of the deal.

    It has been available since Monday the 11th at Best Buy in San Francisco.  I was there and they were willing to sell it to me then.

  • Arnulfonunez11

    what if you buy a phone today and then buy the triumph when it comes out, will you need to channge plans ? or can you keep the old $25 ?

    FYI. I picked up a Triumph yesterday, Saturday. It was a switch out for my 6 month old BB because the screen was going bad. The sales guy said they had 4 in store. Because of release date, I can’t activate it until the 20th. They took my BB. Cost is 299.00. I had to pay 50.00 for the switch. But they rolled my warranty (24 months) to the Triumph.

    The store is in South Elgin, IL

    Here’s what I did….I went to Radio Shack and bought the Optimus V and activated it for myself so that I could lock in the current rates.  Once my preordered Triumph gets delivered I will activate it on my account and send back the Optimus for a refund or maybe give it to my wife whom currently has the BB 8530 on Virgin Mobile.
