This has been confirmed to work for the Optimus V, Elite, Wildfire, and Venture. The Triumph and a few other devices released before 5/27 should work. The One V will not work.

Go to virginmobileusa.com, click "manage my account", then click "change plans". On the bottom, there should be a link that says "don't see the plan you want?" click that and you can switch to the $25 plan. This includes unlimited text, data, and 300 minutes.

Not sure if this is a glitch or limited time special, so hurry! If you want to activate one of the aforementioned phones, then activate it, don't pay for the $35 plan, and then switch to the $25 plan in the account page.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CONFIRM THIS FOR ME!!

I just got off chat (don't worry) and asked which phones allow me to keep me grandfathered plan. The person said as long as I have been
a customer since July 20 2011 using a beyond talk unlimited data plan (not the paylo plan), I can buy ANY PHONE and it'll stay on the grandfathered rate as long as I keep paying my bills on time.

This means it doesn't have to be something that was released before May 2012
**Any beyond talk unlimited data plan phone, not paylo plan phones.


Please reply back if this actually works.....if so I'm buying an EVO V!!

^^ That is not accurate. Phones after May 2012 will not work except the Elite.

This doesn't work anymore, move along people. But who knows, it may come back again sometime.

Dead!!!

It doesn't show the "additional plan options"
Looks to be done. I just activated a new phone, no additional options.

Where's the best place to get refills now? CallingMart is charging $25.75 for a $25 card now! It was $24.75 last week. Lame as hell.

Check this site, they have it for $24.50. I've used them and they were pretty good.

Yes. You can use any of the top up cards in any denominations. Even the non-monthly ones will work.

they knew that Im sure and pretended to have a glitch to get a bunch of new subs from sites like this thinking they are beating the system and getting a deal.

many will take the 35 because they paid money for a new phone.

If your looking for a discount on Top Up Cards try this. First you need a Red Card credit card from Target. Second, for every 5 prescriptions you fill at Target Pharmacy they send you a 5% discount card that can be used almost anywhere in the store.
$35 top up card minus 5% = $33.25 minus 5% =

$31.59

per card out the door!

No tax charged and I even live in California. Don't quite know why.
