Virgin Mobile today announced they were cutting down their range of mobile phone offerings to simplify the options for consumers. Gone are the low level $19, $29, and $39 Fair Go plans, along with the Pick & Mix and post paid Simple Plan. This change leaves Virgin Mobile with a much simpler looking plan matrix:
|29 Big Plan||39 Big Plan||49 Fair
|Minimum Monthly Spend||$29||$39||$49||$59||$89|
|Minimum Cost Over 24 Months||$696||$936||$1176||$1416||$2136|
|BYO Phone & Save $10 monthly||$19||$29||$39||$49||$79|
|Included Monthly Plan Credit
|Unlimited Standard Text to Australian Numbers||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes|
The best news for consumers is the extension of the BONUS 2GB DATA OFFER on the Big Plan 29 & Big Plan 39. This was the most enticing mobile phone offer in June as it gives you an additional 2GB of data allowance every month for the life of your contract. All the major handsets are available on these plans – Galaxy S3, iPhone 4S, HTC One X, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2 and so on.
Virgin Mobile will also be offering 5 Months at 50% Off on a huge range of phones and plans.
And to top it all off Virgin Mobile have also released the NEW HTC One S on their range of plans, starting from just $37 per month. This is the little brother of the HTC One X and represents excellent bang for your buck!
