VM does not charge a fee to swap to a new phone, however, i believe that any new smartphone purchased after may 27, 2012 (with the exception of the older ones such as the optimus V and the venture) will be subject to current rate plans, so if you have the old $25/mo for 300 mins/unlimited data & text plan, it will automatically update you to the current rate for the same plan which is $35/mo. from what im understanding, the grandfathered rate plan will NOT apply to the newly released smartphones. but aside from the change in the monthly rate plan, there is no fee other than the cost of the new phone.

There is no fee when you switch phones from one Virgin Mobile phone ti the other. If you are switching from another carrier, there are charges.
There isn't a fee to change phones.
Normally I just call up virginmobile and they will do the transfer of your account to a new phone. I never got charged before but I have been with them for years.
