Yes.

• The Beyond Talk and payLo plans only cover domestic calls and domestic messages to phones within the USA.

• There are no international plans at Virgin Mobile.

• Receiving an international call takes your regular minutes but there are no additional charges to receive an international call.

• There are additional charges to MAKE international calls using any Beyond Talk plan. International calls are charged at the international per-minute rate
   for the country you're calling PLUS your standard airtime rate(minutes). ►For the international per-minute rate that you are calling, scroll down the Beyond
   Talk page to 'International Rates' then select the country's region in the 'Select A Region' menu.◄
    http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/beyond-talk-plans/overview/

• International text messages cost 15¢ each, inbound and outbound. International picture messages are not available.

• You can make international calls with any Beyond Talk or payLo phone with an active account.
   So, you will need $$ in your Virgin Mobile account before making any international calls. Click 'Top-Up' at the top of this page to use a credit/debit card,
   PayPal, or Virgin Mobile Top-Up card to put money into your Virgin Mobile account before sending an international call.

• Learn how to make international calls from your mobile phone

   Make international calls the same way you would from any other phone. Dial 011 + the country code + the city code + the phone number.

None of the current Beyond Talk phones have MHL. You should be able to connect your TV via an HDMI cable or DLNA to the Apple iPhone 4 8gb, HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy S III, and the discontinued Motorola Triumph from Virgin Mobile USA.

Question
Which phones can I use with my Assurance wireless plan?
I want to upgrade my phone...will any of these phone models work with the Assurance free plan, even if the phone has more features than my plan allows? I can always upgrade my plan later, because even if I cannot use all the features on my new phone..I would like a better phone which gets a better signal. I am looking at the LG Optimus Elite, because it seems to be the best phone I afford right now. If I have to buy the phone somewhere else, can I get it unlocked to use with my plan?. I got some money that I can only spend in a certain place.

• You won't be able to send/receive calls if you run out of minutes before the end of your month UNLESS you have money in your Virgin Mobile account.
   If your Virgin Mobile account is empty then your calling services will simply stop. Your messaging and web access will continue until the end of your month.
  Additional minutes are 10¢ each. Charges for additional minutes come out of your Virgin Mobile account. Use a Virgin Mobile Top-Up card(s), credit/debit
  card, or PayPal account to add money to your Virgin Mobile account before you run out of minutes.

• You can also start your next month early to get all your minutes again. Top-Up your account as usual. Select the RESTART MY PLAN button.

To see or add to the balance in your Virgin Mobile account on your phone select MY ACCOUNT on the menu or click MANAGE MY ACCOUNT at the top of this page.

Virgin Mobile phones use the CDMA cell phone communication method. ATT phones use the GSM method. The phones are incompatible with the other company's communication method.
