Mandatory. All providers are like that because Blackberries use an additional server/network that isn't owned by any of the cell providers out there.

There is no bill, you pay in advance. $35 plus your local and state taxes, unless you buy a topup card online from many retailers that do not charge taxes

answer 2
There are no bills on Virgin Mobile. The $35/month plan provides 300 minutes of domestic talk, unlimited domestic messages, and unlimited web access every month. Nothing else is available to you (international calls, ringtones, etc) unless you have money in your Virgin Mobile account to pay for it.

As for taxes, Virgin Mobile covered it in the 'FAQs' tab above:

Am I charged for taxes and other surcharges?
All of the Beyond Talk Plans are inclusive of taxes and surcharges. However, we collect sales taxes on all Top-Up transactions for all services that we process directly and, in certain states, we collect regulatory fees. Retailers are responsible for collecting sales taxes and, in some states, regulatory fees for Top-Up transactions that they process.

Option 1: You could get the $40/month payLo plan with payLo phone. It provides only 50mb of data every month.

payLo                          Monthly Talk Minutes                         Messages                               Web Access                 
Plans                                                                                (Text, IM, Email, Picture)
• $40/month                     UNLIMITED                                    UNLIMITED                                   50MB

The payLo plans and the payLo phones are described at:  http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/paylo-plans/overview/

Option 2: You can block all web access on your phone by clicking on 'SUPPORT' at the top of this page to contact Virgin Mobile's Customer Care. However, some plans include web access (i.e. Beyond Talk plans and the payLo Talk & Text plan) and you cannot optout of paying for the web access on these plans. So, pick your plan carefully to avoid paying for web access that won't be used.

Option 3: You can also block web access on some phones with Parental Controls.
--- The payLo Samsung M575 has built-in Parental Controls. The Samsung M575 works with payLo plans.

--- The LG Rumor Touch is a Beyond Talk phone with built-in Parental Controls. Apps are available elsewhere for parental controls for the Android and BlackBerry phones. You get nicer phones with many features.
Beyond Talk plans start at $35/month. Although you can disable web access you cannot optout of paying for web access.

See the Owner's Manuals for parental control features at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/phone-manuals-guides

It is not possible to add another line to any account. It is not possible to share minutes. There are no family plans. Each phone has its own account. When you buy another phone it will have its own account. :(

There are no family plans here, you buy as many phones as you need, pick a plan for each phone and pay for each separately. All BEYOND TALK PLANS have unlimited data
