Virgin Relaunches Helio
Today Virgin Mobile USA relaunched Helio with the branding: Helio by Virgin Mobile. Virgin plans to launch the Shuttle, Virgin Mobile USA's first handset able to use Helio services such as Buddy Beacon. It is also enhancing Helio's $80 A La Carte plan, effective today, to include Unlimited Minutes rather than the current 1500 minute allocation. The new terms of the Helio A La Carte plan, which mirror Virgin Mobile USA's Totally Unlimited prepaid voice plan at $79.99, will be available for current and future Helio members. Virgin has already transitioned Helio subscribers to its systems. For a while, it will run the customer care operations separately.
