The no-contract US-based carrier Virgin Mobile has just announced the immediate availability of its new $40 payLo monthly plan that promises to rock your world.
Beginning today, customers who prefer monthly plans over long-term contracts can check out Virgin Mobile’s new offering, aimed at those who would rather use their phones for talking and messaging, and less for mobile browsing.
Traditional customers can be sure that Virgin Mobile’s new $40 monthly pre-paid plan will meet their requirements and then some.
The new payLo plans offers subscribers unlimited talk and text plan, which means unlimited voice minutes and messages (text, picture, email and/or IM).
In addition, customers will also get about 50MB of mobile data, which can be used occasionally to browse the Internet.
According to Virgin Mobile
, the $40 monthly plan is an excellent choice when combined with some of the carrier’s affordable feature phones, such as the Samsung M575, which is available for only $49.99.
The M575 comes with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, allowing for faster and more accurate texting.
Furthermore, the slider sports a decent 2.4-inch display, a 2-megapixel rear photo snapper with camcorder, as well as Bluetooth, easy access to the Web and Virgin Mobile Navigator.
There is no mention on the phone’s storage amount, but Virgin Mobile confirms the Samsung
M575 supports microSD cards that allows for memory expansion.
Last but not least, it is worth mentioning that payLo by Virgin Mobile does not require activation fees and long-term contracts. Those who choose one of the carrier’s plans can add to a monthly balance with payLo or Virgin Mobile Top-Up cards, or with a credit/debit card or PayPal account online.
“Even with the huge increase in data usage, there are still millions of people who mainly talk and text, and they deserve reliable service and phones. Half of our current payLo customers are primarily talking and texting, and now we’re providing to them unlimited value that suits their needs
,” said Mark Lederman, director, payLo.
