Virgin Mobile USA offers new plans

Virgin Mobile USA changed its monthly calling plans to give users expanded off-peak calling options. On top of the existing 400 anytime minutes, Virgin Mobile customers with a $49.99-a-month plan now get unlimited nights and weekends starting at 7 p.m. Customers previously paid $44.99-a-month but the nights and weekends minutes were capped at 2,000. The carrier did not change up its $24.99 plan's price, but customers get 500 minutes for nights and weekends, which now begin at 7 p.m., too. Virgin also lumped multimedia messages into its $9.99 per month messaging bundle, which also includes texts, emails and IMs. The carrier also now allows prepaid users to rollover up to 5,000 unused monthly minutes if they buy a new bundle within 30 days of buying a previous one.
