Sorry, no. Virgin Mobile USA phones work strictly within the USA.

Virgin Mobile USA phones use the Sprint Nationwide Network which extends ONLY throughout the 48 U.S contiguous states, Hawaii, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. The Virgin Mobile USA phones do not roam across other phone networks either. For these reasons the Virgin Mobile USA phones work strictly within the USA and when located outside the USA, will not send/receive calls or messages nor provide web access. There are no options available to use Virgin Mobile USA phones outside the USA.

Sorry, all phones, devices, and SIM cards from Virgin Mobile USA are locked to Virgin Mobile USA. They can't be used with any other carrier.

Only if you buy the phone at Walmart AND you are a new customer.

SPECIAL PAYLO PLAN ONLY AT WALMART
   Virgin Mobile and Walmart now have an unlimited talk or unlimited text deal for new customers only. You MUST buy a payLo phone from Walmart. Then go
   online to Walmart.com and buy the "Virgin payLo $20 Web" TopUp card. You can choose Unlimited Minutes (includes 50 messages) or Unlimited Messages
   (includes 50 minutes). This special card is only available at Walmart and only works with payLo phones from Walmart. This is a new plan that was
   introduced July 1, 2014. Only available for new customers.

You can do a phone swap at any time without losing a single minute. You only lose minutes if you change plans. When you do a phone swap everything inside your Virgin Mobile account will be transferred to your new phone such as phone number, plan, minutes, and any balance in your account.

Sorry, all the Beyond Talk AND payLo plans are month-to-month. Near the end of your month you should get a Virgin Alert reminder that it's time to Top-Up. You can use a Virgin Mobile Top-Up card, credit/debit card, or a PayPal account to pay for your next month of service. Select MY ACCOUNT on your phone or click TOP-UP at the top of this web page to start the process.

If you are worried about missing your payment date you can pay up to one month in advance.

Or you can set Auto Top-Up to automatically pay every month from your credit/debit card or PayPal account.

The Kyocera Kona is a good, basic, feature phone. You can get ringtones, games and other downloads for the payLo phones from Virgin Mobile. Click MY STUFF on your phone, then click GET MORE RINGTONES.

You need an Android smartphone or Apple iPhone to download and run apps. You can do that with any Beyond Talk phone and Beyond Talk plan.
► See the current Beyond Talk phones at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/beyond-talk-plans/overview/#overview

Most Android apps are at the online Google Play store. Most apps for iPhones are at the online iTunes store.

The Basic Rate plan is only available on payLo phones introduced to market BEFORE May 2013. That means your Basic Rate plan will only work with the Kyocera S2100 and S2300, Samsung Montage and Entro. The Samsung Entro does not have a camera. It won't work with the Kyocera Kona, Contact, nor Brio. If you try to switch to a phone that doesn't support your current plan then you will be prompted to change plans to accommodate the phone.

You should click 'SUPPORT' at the top of this page and verify this information with Virgin Mobile's Customer Care before you buy a new payLo phone. You can also click LIVE CHAT on the left side of this web page, when available.
