Virgin Mobile USA today made some changes to its service plans. To start, the company added a new, low-cost plan for $20 per month. It includes 300 voice minutes, unlimited messaging, but no data. The $35 plan now gives customers a choice. They can opt for unlimited voice minutes with 250MB of high-speed data, or 300 voice minutes and up to 2.5GB of 3G/4G data access (speeds throttled once allotment reached). Both $35 options include unlimited messaging. Virgin also offers a $45 plan, which includes unlimited minutes/messages and up to 1GB of data, and a $55 plan, which includes unlimited minutes/messages and up to 3GB of high-speed data. The new plans are available beginning today and can be paired with most devices sold by Virgin. Customers may also choose to pay another $5 per month for unlimited voice minutes to Canada and Mexico, or another $10 per month for 1,000 minutes to more than 200 countries.

How much have they changed?

I sold Virgin a year ago and I don't think the new plans are good at all. It use to be 2.5GB high speed then throttled on all three and then 300, 1500, and unlimited minites. So they added more minutes for the lower ones. Who is making calls now a days.
Yeh , just received an email from VM about the new $20 plan and noticed the changes to the other existing plans ... they are not good at all and are now a rip off . Guess its time leave VM for something better ! Thx for nothing VM !!!

Virgin & Boost a total joke compared to Cricket

These Virgin Plans are a joke! 100X the coverage & quality of network on AT&T's fully-owned MVNO Cricket & over 3X the data allotment for the same price too currently. WHO is still on Virgin & Boost aside from uninformed customers??? Laughing

T-Mobile PAYG

T-Mo still has the best prepaid-talk&text option, at $30 for 90 days and 10 cents per minute/text.

Good Choices

The $35 price point and the available options are great. Just a native Sprint only network coverage is the killer.
