There are no contracts, VMUSA is prePaid, you buy the handset of your choice, you pick the plan you want. If you can't pay on the due day pay when you can, you can skip payment/service for up to 90 days and still keep your phone number. Leave when you want to

Virgin Mobile occasionally changes their phones, devices and plans. Look for "Daily Mobile Hotspot" on the FEATURES & SPECS tab.

BEYOND TALK -TETHERING PHONES
Tethering, an internet connection to computers via USB cable from your phone, is not available on Virgin Mobile phones.

HOTSPOT
A hotspot provides internet access to Wi-Fi enabled (IEEE 802.11) devices like phones, laptops, iPads, PC/Macs, tablets, games, and more. Hotspots are widely available at cafes, libraries, bookstores, public transport, airports, etc.

► You need the following to create a Mobile Hotspot via Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11):

     1. One of the Beyond Talk plans ($35, $45, or $55 per month)
     2. The $15 per month OR $5 per day Hotspot option in your Virgin Mobile account
     3. One of these Beyond Talk phones:
          (uses 3G network only) Apple iPhone 4s, Kyocera Event
          (uses 4G LTE and 3G networks) HTC Desire, Kyocera Hydro Vibe, LG Optimus F3, LG Volt, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy SIII,
                                                                 Samsung Galaxy Victory

If you want unlimited minutes you should get either the $55/month Beyond Talk plan or the $40/month payLo plan both with unlimited domestic minutes with any phone within the USA at anytime.

All the other Beyond Talk and payLo plans use anytime minutes. Minutes are used anytime your phone is used for any call. 911 and Virgin Mobile customer service are the only exceptions. Minutes for all calls, incoming & outbound, will be deducted from your monthly allotment on your account according to your plan; there are no free mobile-to-mobile, Virgin-to-Virgin, weekend or night calls for any Beyond Talk nor payLo plan.

Virgin Mobile now takes trade-ins. When shopping for a phone on this website click on the GET PAID TO TRADE tab. Virgin Mobile doesn't automatically upgrade phones.
