Things To Know About Virgin Mobile

Overview

Virgin Mobile USA was founded in 2001 as a joint venture between Sprint and Virgin Group LTD.  Virgin Group LTD is a multinational corporation headquartered in London.  In 2009, Sprint bought out Virgin Group LTD and took sole ownership of Virgin Mobile USA.  Today, Virgin Mobile USA is one of two prepaid wireless brands that are owned by Sprint, the other being Boost Mobile.

In June of 2017 Virgin Mobile announced that it would start to phase out Android phones and become the USA’s first iPhone only based wireless provider.  The move was met with criticism from its Android loving subscribers who feared losing service and desired more affordable phones than the iPhone.  Media outlets also questioned why the company would want to limit what phone options customers had to choose from.  The move would effectively eliminate a large portion of USA wireless customers from considering Virgin Mobile as their provider of choice.

Customers who subscribe to Virgin Mobile get more than a cell phone plan.  They get enrolled in a member benefit program which gives subscribers access to special discounts on dining, travel, entertainment, and fashion.  Members can also enter to win special prizes and sweepstakes.  Some prizes that have been awarded include free vacations and gift cards.

Where To Buy SIMs And Service Plans

SIMs and service plans can be purchased online directly from the Virgin Mobile USA website.  Legacy and current wireless refill cards are also available through a variety of outlets which include Target and Walmart .
