It looks like the forever hyped relaunch of Sprint's Virgin Mobile prepaid brand has finally occurred. The carrier has changed its Unlimitedplans. There are now just two plans instead of three. The new plans are:
$35/month for unlimited talk and messaging and data with the first 5 GB at high speeds.
$45/month for unlimited talk and messaging and data with the first 10 GB at high speeds.
After the first 5 or 10 GB of data is used, speeds are throttled to 128 Kbps or less for the rest of the month. As before, additional high speed data is available at $5 for 1 GB or $10 for 2 GB. Add on data is good for 30 days. Unlimited music streaming from iHeart Radio, Pandora, 8 Tracks or Slacker Radio that does not count against the plan's high speed data allowance is also included with both plans. Plus, both plans get 50 minutes of off-network voice-roaming. However, hotspot is no longer included in the unlimited plans at no extra cost. Hotspot is available but it will cost you $3/day for 500 MB of hotspot or $5/month for 1 GB or $10/month for 2 GB.
