Sorry, the Samsung M575 will only work with the payLo plans. If you already have the Samsung M575 then the closest payLo plan is the Unlimited Talk and Text plan which costs $40/month. You'll get UNLIMITED domestic calls, UNLIMITED domestic messages (text, picture, IM and email), and 50MB of web access every month.

The $35/month Beyond Talk plan will only work with one of the Beyond Talk phones at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/shop/cell-phones/beyond-talk/

Yes, you can listen through the speakerphone, but as is typical of tiny speakers on almost all mobile phones, the sound quality is very marginal. So if you're not picky about sound for your music, it can be done. But I personally would never do it.

You may be able to listen through the speakerphone but quality will be poor. Headphones will probably be better. See the owner's manual for details:

Does virgin mobile have 3 way
Can I talk to 2 people at the same time

► System Update: 3 Way Calling
There's no additional charge to use the 3 Way Calling feature, however you'll be charged standard rates for both calls while you're connected to both calls.
For example, if you're on the Pay As You Go plan, and you're talking to a friend, you're being charged $0.10/min for that call. If you make a second call without dropping the first call (to use the 3 Way Calling feature), you'll be charged $0.20/min since you're on two calls at the same time ($0.10 per min, per call).
If you're on the Monthly plan with a limited number of minutes, a minute will be used for each call for each minute of talk time. http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5756/

• System Update: 3-Way Calling Supported Phones

The phones below will support 3-Way Calling:

Phone Date Available
iPhone (Virgin Mobile) Immediate

Samsung Galaxy SII (Virgin Mobile) 1Q13

http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5754
Note that you will need a Beyond Talk plan ($35, $45, or $55 per month) to use any of the above phones.
See the Beyond Talk plans and phones at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/beyond-talk-plans/overview/#overview

• 3 Way Calling is not supported on any other Virgin Mobile, payLo, or Beyond Talk phones at this time.

Understand 411 and how much it costs on your Virgin Mobile plan

You can't make a call if you don't know the number, so let us help. Virgin Mobile's 411 service goes above and beyond directory assistance. It includes free call completion, as well as movie listings, restaurant reservations, sports scores, horoscopes, and weather forecasts. You will also receive the 411 listing via text message free of charge! Virgin Mobile's 411 service calls $1.75 per call plus standard airtime charges.

Want to impress your friends with the answer no one knows? Find out anything you want to know, even when you're on the go! Just text your question to 411 and we'll send you back the answer within of couple minutes. There's a charge of 99¢ per response so you'll need to opt-in for the service. Standard messaging rates apply on each question. Charges will be deducted from your account balance.

Not true. The Samsung M575 is compatible with all payLo plans. Sounds like a misunderstanding with the store staff or the store website.
