Don't know what you mean by "this." If you mean the Galazy 5, no, they havent. If you mean the "unlimted" data/text plan, yes, they have. $35 bucks a month gets ya 300 minutes talk time and unlimited data and text...that's supposedly gets throttled down in speed after a certain amount of use (aprox 2.5 GB, I think). Thing is, Virgin Mobile's network is slow to start out with. Not that big a deal as long as ya just jump onto WiFi. That's what I do and have done for years. I was grandfathered in to the $25/month 300 minutes and unlimited data/text plan for years until my phone broke, and I had to upgrade. The advantage is that now I can get 4G LTE speeds, which given Virgin Mobile's network, is truly helpful. Still, WiFi's your best bet. And remember your VPN! :)
But havving the Galaxy 5 since launch--nope. This is pretty fast for Virgin Mobile to offer such a high-end phone, actually. Usually takes a good year--maybe more--for Virgin Mobile to make such phones available.
Anonymous, 10 May 2014$55 for "unlimited data"?actually you can pay 35 for unlimited data and messaging...after using 2gb( I think it's two) it goes from 3g to 2g. But it is still a good deal.
Galaxy nice!! But too pricy I think. Wish we had more GSM carriers here Virgin, Boost, and Cricket the only prepaid carriers but all CDMA so we can't take our phones to the other which sucks.. you can't even trade in.
