Virgin Mobile Announces the UTStarcom Arc Flip Phone
      #30711 - 07/08/08 05:33 PM

Virgin Mobile USA announced its newest handset for 2008, the UTStarcom Arc. A flip phone outlined with stylish curves, the Arc is finished in a trendsetting red soft-feel touch. This affordable mobile phone, which includes Bluetooth wireless technology and a camera, brings another cost-effective and attractive product to Virgin Mobile USA?s lineup, offering its millions of customers yet another desirable handset available without an annual contract. Here is more info:

The ARC gives Virgin Mobile USA customers 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.

Here are a few more things ARC can brag about:

-Small and compact, this clamshell phone is 3.6? x 1.9? x 0.8??the perfect size to slip into a bag or pocket, weighing in at only 3.0 oz. without causing any unsightly bulges!
-ARC is designed by UTStarcom, and priced at a reasonable $49.99, with a VGA camera, mobile web browsing, IM and e-mail.
-Preloaded games provide entertainment, while a range of animated and Real Music ringtones are there to amuse?or annoy.
-ARC also comes with the enhanced Virgin Mobile USA user interface for a slightly cooler look and feel than the average ?lump of phone.?
-210 minutes of talk time, 14.5 days of standby time, and room for 500 contacts make this the perfect phone for the socially connected.
