answer 1
Virgin Mobile and Walmart now have an unlimited talk or unlimited text deal for new customers only. You MUST buy a payLo phone from Walmart. Then go online to Walmart.com and buy the "Virgin payLo $20 Web" TopUp card. You can choose Unlimited Minutes (includes 50 messages) or Unlimited Messages (includes 50 minutes). This special card is only available at Walmart and only works with payLo phones from Walmart. This is a new plan that was introduced July 1, 2014.

That depends on the balance in your Virgin Mobile account. The $20/month plan provides 400 minutes of domestic calling every month. That's all. Text messages cost extra.

Text messages cost 15¢ each. Charges for text messages come out of your Virgin Mobile account. You must have money in your Virgin Mobile account BEFORE you can send or receive text messages. To see or add to the balance in your Virgin Mobile account on your phone select MY ACCOUNT on the menu. You can also click TOP-UP at the top of this web page. Use a Virgin Mobile Top-Up card(s), credit/debit card, or PayPal account to add money to your Virgin Mobile account before you send/receive text messages.

► There is no 'text only' plan at this time.

The closest match for you would be either the $35/month Beyond Talk plan or the payLo $40/month. Both plans have unlimited text messaging and
the lowest amount of minutes and web access.

- $35/month Beyond Talk plan has 300 minutes talk, PLUS unlimited messaging, and web access. You'll need a Beyond Talk phone, too.

-$40/month payLo plan has unlimited calling minutes, unlimited messages(text, email, IM, picture), 50mb of web access. You'll need a payLo phone, too

You didn't mention how many minutes you talk in a month nor if you do any text messaging or access the internet. So, let's just say that all you need is talk minutes.

If you use your cell phone less than 7 hours(400 minutes) per month then choose the $20/month plan. Get the $30/month plan if use your cell phone less than 25 hours(1,500 minutes) per month. For unlimited minutes and unlimited messages every month, get the $40/month payLo plan if you need. All payLo plans require a payLo phone from Virgin Mobile.

payLo is Virgin Mobile's value brand. There are 3 payLo plans for the payLo phones. All the payLo monthly plans will only work with the payLo phones. None of the payLo phones are smartphones. All plans from Virgin Mobile include Caller ID, Call Waiting, 3-Way Conference Calling(most phones), Call Forwarding(most phones), and Voicemail. Pick the payLo plan and payLo phone that comes closest to your needs.

You should dial *86 on your Virgin Mobile phone or click 'SUPPORT' at the top of this page and ask Virgin Mobile's Customer Care by email or phone call. All questions and answers on this board are from fellow Virgin Mobile customers. We help each other out here. Virgin Mobile staff monitor the content but generally don't comment here

The Kyocera S2100 was the only phone for legacy plans like yours. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued on this website. Some may still be available at stores or elsewhere online. If you choose a phone that cannot accommodate your Minute2Minute plan you will be prompted to change to one of the current plans. So, you should contact Virgin Mobile before buying another phone.
