Virgin Mobile today announced it will add more text messages to its popular payLo $30/month Talk and Text plan with even more messaging and data for the same low price. With the new adjustment, payLo customers will still receive the same 1,500 domestic voice minutes and will now get the allotment of messages (text, picture, email and/or IM) from 500 to 1,500 messages per month and the Web access allotment from 10MB to 30MB per month. Here is more:
This new, enhanced offer sets itself apart from the competition by offering 1,500 voice minutes AND 1,500 messages. By comparison, T-Mobile?s prepaid $30 monthly plan provides a total of 1,500 minutes and/or texts. With payLo, customers aren?t restricted to using just one bucket of minutes or messages for both talking and texting.
As more consumers are seeing the benefits of prepaid wireless, both for lower price and convenience, payLo is capitalizing on that trend by expanding its brand presence ? most recently in Best Buy stores nationwide. In addition to presence in the mall-based Best Buy Mobile locations, payLo products are now highlighted in their own dedicated section in Best Buy big box stores. Customers can find value-driven payLo products, such as the LG200 for $69.99, the Kyocera S2300 for $49.99, the Kyocera S2100 for $29.99, and the LG101 for $14.99, at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile specialty stores or by visiting other exclusive, select and authorized retailers.
