Virgin Mobile Prepaid Plans

Virgin Mobile prepaid plans are either pay by the minute or bundles by the month. If you pay by the minute it is simply 18 per minute and 5 per text sent or received.  To maintain service you must top up at least once every 90 days and the minimum top up value is $20. Otherwise the service will expire and you lose any existing credits. If you use your phone more than a few minutes per day, it will be cheaper to sign up for a monthly bundle.

Virgin Mobile Bundles include a certain number of anytime and night/weekend minutes for a low fixed monthly price. However there's no contract so you can change or discontinue the plan.  The more expensive plans include more minutes and can also include unlimited night/weekend minutes. Nights are 7 PM to 7 AM which is better than most other networks where nights don't begin until 9.  Text Messages are 5 to send/receive, but text bundles are also available which can reduce the price to 1 each. Picture messages are 25 sent/received. The interesting feature of these bundles is how overage minutes are charged. If you go over the allotted minutes, you are charged 18 per minute, but you pay for overages in 25 minute blocks. So if you go over by 1 minute, you'll pay $4.50 extra.
