I Jumped to Virgin Mobile!

Remember this ad I told you about before?

 

Well, I went ahead and joined the party. I got the new LG Optimus on sale for $99 at Best Buy, and bought their $45/month plan. When it came to the options, that was the best deal for me. That gives me unlimited texting, web, and data, plus 1200 minutes a month. The $35/month plan featured in the commercial gives unlimited text, data, and web as well, but only comes with 300 minutes a month. The only bummer is that VM doesn’t do free nights or weekends.

So far the coverage has been great too. I’ve been able to send texts from the bottom of the used bookstore I hang out in a lot, as well as a couple of other places that my T-Mobile coverage couldn’t reach. The phone call quality is just the same as it would be under contract, and Angry Birds plays just fine, btw. 🙂

Mrs. Linc is thinking about coming to VM now once she dumps T-Mobile, because she can’t seem to find a plan she likes on any contracts. I showed her that for $55/month, she can have unlimited everything. Text, web, data, and minutes.

Then I stopped and wondered why I didn’t spend the extra $10.

Oh well, I can do that next month if I want to. We’ll see just how many minutes I use.

If you’re curious, here’s the details about their Beyond Talk plan.
