Virgin Mobile expands calling plans

Prepaid carrier Virgin Mobile expands night and weekend calling options.

Virgin Mobile USA today announced changes to its monthly plans that give customers expanded off-peak calling options. Besides the customary 400 anytime minutes, customers of the $49.99 per month plans will now get unlimited nights and weekends starting at 7 p.m. Previously, the same plan was $44.99 per month but nights and weekends were capped at 2,000 calling minutes. The $24.99 plan did not change in price but customers will now get 500 nights and weekend minutes, also starting at 7 p.m. And as usual, none of Virgin Mobile's monthly plans require a contract.

The carrier also rolled out changes to its messaging plans. The $9.99 per month messaging bundle now includes text messages, e-mails, IMs, and multimedia messages. Previously, multimedia messages were not included in the bundle. Lastly, prepaid customers now can rollover up to 5,000 unused monthly minutes when they buy a new minute bundle within 30 days of a previous bundle purchase.
