Sorry, Virgin Mobile's offer for the Basic Rate plan expired as of Jun. 24, 2013. The Basic Rate plan is no longer available to new customers nor to current customers wishing to switch plans.
Current customers with the Basic Rate plan active in an account will be grandfathered and can keep the plan until the plan is discontinued as long as they don't change plans or let their accounts expire. If a current customer with an active Basic Rate plan changes plan to a monthly plan($20, $30, or $40 per month) the Basic Rate plan will no longer be available to them.

Under the payLo Basic Rate, IF you don't use any of the $20 to buy other services like text messages, web access, VirginXL, etc then you COULD get 100 minutes at 20¢ each(20/.20=100). Think of it this way, you are not buying minutes with the Basic Rate, you are simply putting money into your account that you are spending when you call, text, use the web, etc.
