Virgin Mobile USA today confirmed to Fierce Wireless that it is altering all the pricing rates for its Beyond Talk service plans. Starting this week, Beyond Talk's lowest plan, which includes 300 voice minutes and unlimited messaging and data, will jump from $25 per month to $35 per month. Similarly, its $40 plan, which boosts minutes to 1,200, will climb to $45 per month. Beyond Talk will drop the price of its most expensive unlimited plan from $60 to $55, and it is also dropping the $10 add-on fee that it has charged to BlackBerry smartphone users. Virgin Mobile USA spokesperson Jayne Wallace said in an email to Fierce, "Like all major carriers, we've seen data usage in particular increase significantly over the past few months, and are taking these steps to ensure customers continue to enjoy unlimited data while using Virgin Mobile, without overages or a contract."

Would go with Boost but the VM Motorola Triumph is far superior to the Prevail. I had hoped to get 2 Triumphs with my $25 plans & use those with VM. Some question too as to if VM will let us (if grandfathered) use the Triumph on the $25 plan though. I hope so, was looking forward to having my TMO HD2 along w...

Wrong plan name quoted.

The plans that are changing are the Beyond Talk plans, NOT the PayLo plans.

Good News...

This is good news for those who use a lot of voice minutes. For those who need less though, it's not terrific.
