Virgin Mobile is about to make same significant changes in their plan offerings, changes that a tipster for Mobile Syrup shared with them. As of tomorrow, May 9th, 2012, users will be offered new Virgin Mobile plans, smartphone and prepaid ones. Smartphone plans are compatible with BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) while prepaid plans come with unlimited incoming texts, voicemail, call display, call forwarding, call waiting and 3-way calling.
Prepaid plans include two possibilities. First one is $25 per month for 100 anytime minutes (additional minutes $0.30), unlimited text for Canada and U.S. and 100 MB of data. The second one is $35 per month with unlimited incoming calls, unlimited calls over weekends and evenings/nights (7pm- 7am), unlimited text for Canada and U.S. and additional minutes charged $0.30. In addition, Virgin’s $35 plan offers unlimited FaceBook, Twitter BBM or email and BBM for BlackBerry devices and 250MB of data for other smartphones.
Three new Virgin’s smartphone plans are $50, $55, $60 monthly plans. As already mentioned, all three are working with BYOP and My Peeps. The cheapest one, $50 smartphone plan, offers 150 minutes, unlimited international texting, 5pm evenings and
500 MB of data.
A $55 smartphone monthly plan includes 200 minutes, unlimited incoming calls, unlimited international text messaging, 5pm evenings and 500MB of data. And the most expensive one, for $60 per month, gives users 300 minutes, unlimited incoming calls, unlimited international text messaging, 5pm evenings and 1GB of data.
Certain changes were expected as Sprint is about to bring WiMAX network to both Virgin and Boost Mobile, same as compatible handsets. These changes will be on as of tomorrow, May 9th, so it won’t take long before we find out how new Virgin Mobile plans would work out for their customers.
