I was able to switch from T-mobile to Virgin and keep my old number. Don't cancel with the company you are with until the number has been "ported" as it is called. My Virgin phone didn't come with any minutes. After the number was ported, I was able to set up my account and choose the plan I needed. Everything went very smooth.

I believe that talk time refers to the amount of time you can talk before the battery dies. 150 minutes is the battery life when you are talking on the phone. Hope this helps!

You can get the 25 dollars a month plan, that comes with 300 any time minutes, free emai, free texting and free internet. If you run out of minutes before your 30 days, they will just charge you 25 dollars again, but they have different plans.

answer 6
When they say 150 minutes of talk time and how ever many hours of standby time, they mean that the battery will hold enough charge to allow you to talk for up to 150 minutes continuously befor the battery dies and needs to be recharged. The standby time means that the phone will hold a charge up to that long without being used. Hope this helps.

No. You get however many minutes your plan includes a month ie: if you have the 25$ plan you have 300 minutes that month. If you dont use them you loose them and start over when you top up.

It is my understanding that they do not roll over but there are different minute plans to choose from and you can check your usuage from the phone to see how many minutes you have left to use.

With Virgin Mobile you simply buy the phone and create an account at Virginmobile.com to activate your phone. You have a few different ways to pay for your prepaid service. You can purchase topup cards at many retailers or you can use your credit or debit card to pay for the service. It is that simple. Hope this helps!

Don't worry its easy. I signed up for my account at Virginmobileusa.com and there you can use a credit card to add enough money for the plan you want. I am trying the $25 plan to start and if my wife and daughter talk more than the 300 minutes I will switch but in the past they have always texted more than anything. Switching plans is a snap as well so you are never locked down into anything.
By the way this phone is awesome. I chose it over the Straight talk service mainly because this phone had the touch screen . The web and email all works as promised. Plus the service is on Sprint's network which is reliable and fast.

LOL! I know it is confusing when you've never had a prepaid before. Prepaid is all I've ever owned so it's pretty easy for me to understand. I never bought cards for any of my prepaid phones...I always just added $20-$30.00, depending on my needs, online or through my phone. You can save your information in your phone, so that when you need more minutes, you just add them right from your phone. This is the first time I've used Virgin Mobile, and so far it is just as easy. The one thing about the other phones is your minutes are deducted from the money you put on your phone. With this particular Virgin Mobile phone, I am doing the Beyond Talk option which costs $25 a month. ($27.00 with tax). And I will just pay monthly online or through my phone. I almost recommend the Beyond Talk options over the rest because you get unlimited internet and texting...and with the $25.00 plan you get 300 min. of talk time. There are other plans available as well, if you need more talk time min. But all plans are very reasonable. Good luck! It really is easy, trust me!
