No it is not available. As of 6/24/2013, if you are on the old minute plan ($20 every three months), and your phone dies, the plan dies with it. You are not allowed to switch to another phone. If you have a phone that still works on the old plan, take very good care of it.
Virgin Mobile's offer for the Basic Rate plan, also known as Pay As You Go, expired as of Jun. 24, 2013. The Basic Rate plan is no longer available to new customers nor to current customers wishing to switch plans.
Current customers with the Basic Rate plan active in an account will be grandfathered and can keep the plan until the plan is discontinued as long as they don't change plans or let their accounts expire. If a current customer with an active Basic Rate plan changes plan to a monthly plan($20, $30, or $40 per month) the Basic Rate plan will no longer be available to them.

Yes. Due to the recent plan changes, it is no longer described on the web pages but it is still available.
The Basic Rate plan costs $20 every 90 days; that $20 is added to your phone account. Charges for talk, messages, and web access are deducted from your account as you go.Talk for 20¢/minute, 15¢ each text msg, 25¢ each picture msg, and $1.50/mb of web access. Any amount left in your account at the end of 90 days is carried forward to the next period. The payLo Basic Rate plan can be used by any payLo phone or the LG Rumor2.
