Why I Like Virgin Mobile USA
Using Virgin Mobile
I like using Virgin Mobile as my cell phone company, because my credit is awful, so finding a cell phone company that would take me would be rough. With Virgin Mobile I can pay as I go. Perfectly suited for me. I can access the internet, download games, graphics, and ringtones, and I can quit whenever I want with no penalties.
I recently upgraded my phone and service. My husband gave me a phone for Christmas, and I had to use a monthly service with it. For $25 a month, I get 300 talk minutes, and unlimited everything else. I still don't have to have a contract, and there are two packages higher than the one I got. If you need more talking minutes, they have a 700 minute plan, and at the very top, an unlimited everything plan.
How I Started Using A Cell Phone
My husband decided we needed cell phones, finally, when we went out of town for a concert his band was doing in Milwaukee. My mother-in-law was taking care of our animals for us, and he thought it would be a good idea for her to be able to get a hold of us if something happened. I started with a Trac-Phone, and when I had money enough I switched to Virgin Mobile. I say money enough, because I had to get a phone. I've upgraded my phone twice since I started with Virgin Mobile about 3 years ago. I'm free to update or quit at my own leisure.
What's Your Opinion?
I prefer the pay as you go method. There's no long term contract, and I have more control over how much time I'm using. If I think I have to add money too often, I adjust accordingly. With a monthly bill you can't really do that until your billing cycle is over. I also like the flexibility of switching plans or companies without any consequences.
Which is better, prepaid, or pay as you go?
