New $25 unlimited plan coming to Virgin Mobile?

Just because you want to have an unlimited plan doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank. This comes from an unverified source, but it seems that Virgin Mobile is about to unleash one of the cheapest “unlimited” plans that I have seen for some time. How cheap? How does twenty-five bucks sound?

Looking at these new Virgin Mobile plans, the $25 unlimited plan will give you unlimited text, unlimited email, unlimited data, and unlimited web. That’s a lot of Twitter updates and YouTube videos! The downside is that the $25 plan only comes with 300 anytime minutes.

If you’re the kind of person who tends to chat a little more than that, you can bump up to the $40 a month plan. It’ll give you the same unlimited features, but you get 1200 anytime minutes. For truly unlimited, there’s the $60 plan with unlimited minutes. BlackBerry users, for whatever reason, are on the hook for a $10 premium on any of these three plans.

I don’t talk much, so the $25 unlimited “Beyond Talk” plan sounds awfully appealing. I wonder if they’ll be offering anything similar to Canada.

On a related note, three new phones should be launching with Virgin Mobile soon too. There’s the LG Rumor Touch ($150), the Kyocera Loft ($70), and the BlackBerry Curve 8530 ($300).

    Sounds nice, but don’t be fooled. I tried to switch to them on May 21st, but they lost my old number, and I still don’t have a working phone. (as of June 7th) It’s cheap, but they couldn’t even handle a simple transfer, I’m out of the money i’ve already given for the phone they make you buy, and it’s up in the air if i get the service money I have spent back.

    Just don’t risk it, unless you aren’t attached to your old number like I am. Hours on hold, and infinite “investigations” have finally pushed me to a breaking point.
