Virgin goes unlimited for $80 per month

Unlimited monthly rate plans are all the rage and now the monthly price is creeping lower. Starting July 1, Virgin Mobile USA will have an unlimited plan for $80 per month with no annual contract. Unlimited text and messaging can be added for an extra $10 per month.

Currently this is one of the most inexpensive unlimited plans on the market. In February, Verizon Wireless introduced an unlimited calling plan for $99.99 per month. That was matched by AT&T and T-Mobile USA, which added unlimited messaging to that $99.99 price tag. Sprint Nextel meanwhile charges $89.99 for its unlimited plan, which includes unlimited messaging and data.
