Virgin Mobile prepaid mobile phone plans

Virgin Mobile no longer offers prepaid SIM-only plans, but you can still opt for month-to-month postpaid SIM-only plans.

Virgin Mobile used to offer prepaid plans to consumers, but as of 16 October 2017, those offers have been discontinued.

What does that mean if I'm already a Virgin Mobile prepaid customer?

Virgin Mobile has indicated to that existing customers will still be able to recharge. Bear in mind that if you fail to recharge before the expiry date on your plan, you won't be able to get the same prepaid plan because it simply won't exist. Equally, you'll be stuck on whatever inclusions that plan had at the time you took it up, so it may drop in relative value.

What are my other options if I want to stay with Virgin Mobile?

Virgin Mobile will continue to offer 24-month phone plans as well as SIM-only plans on 12-month or month-to-month expiry terms. If you want the closest match to your existing prepaid Virgin Mobile prepaid plan, the month-to-month SIM-only plans will be your best bet.
