Virgin's newest payLo plan targets texters with its $40 unlimited voice & text offering
Sprint has surely been busy when it comes to the prepaid market, as we’ve recently heard about Voyager Mobile’s launch onto the scene, which so happens to rely on Sprint’s 3G EV-DO and 4G WiMAX networks. Now, we’re hearing about a new plan offering coming from its subsidiary in Virgin Mobile.

Today, Virgin Mobile announced the availability of a brand new payLo pre-paid service plan that primarily targets texters who have an affinity for dishing out tons of messages to friends and family. Specifically, the new $40 per month prepaid plan provides for unlimited voice minutes, unlimited messages, and 50MB of data sprinkled on for those who sparingly use the service.

Again, the new offering is meant to target text messaging happy individuals, but the small data allotment is still a nice thing to have just in case. Of course, the new plan offering is compatible with the assortment of payLo feature phones – such as the Samsung M575, which is a slide-out QWERTY handset that’s priced affordably at $49.99.

If the new $40 plan is still too much for you to handle, Virgin has other payLo plans that might fit the bill – like its $30 plan that offers 1500 minutes, 1500 messages, and 30MB of data. Lastly, there’s also a $20 per month plan that coughs up only 400 minutes, with messages costing $0.15 each and $1.50 per megabyte of data.
