There is a $20 every three mo plan ($80/year), but it's a 20 cent/min talk / .15 text. If you are using VM as your primary phone, the chances of blowing thru the $80 limit is pretty good. 400 minutes goes amazingly fast. If, however, this phone is used as a backup/emergency one (as my VM is) the plan is perfect.

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 may also get a phone call reminding you to pay for your next month. 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.
EXPIRED BASIC RATE PLAN
The payLo Service Preserver Program lets you keep your Virgin Mobile account active for one year without a payment. The Service Preserver Program does not provide any minutes, messages or web access. The Service Preserver Program can only be used with the Basic Rate plan and cannot be used with any other payLo or Beyond Talk plan. You still need to keep a balance in your account to use your phone according to your Basic Rate plan. The money you add to your account to qualify for Service Preserver Program is yours to pay for calling, texting, messages, web access, ringtones, etc.
