Virgin Mobile Review

Looking for high speed data on a hassle-free network? Try Virgin Mobile, a prepaid option for nationwide voice, text, streaming music, and more that won’t break the bank. It’s perfect for those not ready to commit to long-term service contracts and offers cool extras like free activation, online funds renewal, and the latest in mobile technology.


Say goodbye to long term contracts, tricky terms and conditions, and unaffordable plans that make you think twice before making a phone call – instead, say hello to Virgin Mobile.

With no annual service contracts, nationwide coverage, cool extras like unlimited music streaming, and your pick of the latest smart phone technology, this phone network is customized to you, so you get exactly what you need at a price you can afford.

Prepaid Plans

Unlike their big-name competitors, Virgin Mobile offers pay-as-you-go plans, freeing you from those expensive, long-term plans that could keep you locked in for a year or more.

Simply buy the phone you want online or in-store, activate it, and pick the no-contract plan that’s right for you.

With prices varying month-to-month based on your data usage, you can pay a flat rate for either 5GB or 10GB of 4G LTE coverage and add extra data packs as you need them. Even if you run out of your purchased high-speed data, you’re always covered for the remainder of your plan cycle with 2G speeds – so, no matter what, you can call or text nationwide.

For an extra $5 each month, you can add an international plan that gives you unlimited calls to Mexico and Canada with unlimited worldwide texting. Add an extra $10 to your plan, and you get those benefits plus unlimited calls to landlines in over 70 countries and 200 minutes to mobile numbers in over 50. This helps you stay in touch with family and friends across the globe.

Smart Phone Technology

From iPhones to Androids, Virgin Mobile has the most up-to-the-minute gadgets you could be proud to show off.

Browse the latest iPhones, LG phones, Samsung phones, and more, most with free shipping included. Pick your favorite features, including powerful cameras, vibrant, touch-screen displays, heaps of onboard memory, and more, or pick something with fewer bells and whistles and take full advantage of your unlimited talk and text plan.


As a prepaid provider, Virgin Mobile is straightforward when it comes to their pricing and phone plans and they also offer a few advantages over their competitors:

Phone Buyback Plan

If you’ve got an old phone you want to recycle, earn a little cash while you do it. Virgin Mobile may buy that phone back from you, giving you up to $300 in account credit – money that goes a long way on a prepaid plan. Any phone, any carrier – see if your phone qualifies.

Get Unlimited Music

Don’t worry about overages or fees when you stream music. Virgin Mobile partnered with 6 leading music streaming services, so you can listen to the music you want without it counting against your data allotment. Stream from Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and more, with new partners coming soon.

Mobile Hotspots

Turn your phone into a mobile hotspot and connect up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devices, keeping you connected no matter where you are.


For a small fee, Virgin Mobile offers full phone insurance, covering you in case of a lost, stolen, damaged, or malfunctioning phone. Sign up, file a claim if something goes down, and you could have your replacement phone ready within 24 hours.

Live representatives are available to assist you with any customer support issues you may have and you can always check your account or add more funds directly from your phone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You are automatically enrolled in Virgin Mobile’s 1 Year of Service plan when you submit a card payment of $80 or more in one transaction. You’ll have 1 full year of service on your pay-as-you-go phone without having to worry about your service expiring if you let your funds run out. No action is required from you, just rest easy knowing your phone is ready to go when you are.
