Virgin Mobilefalse advertising & fraud

S Review updated:

I recently purchased a Virgin Pay-as-you-go phone as advertised at Free anytime web and text with 1500 minutes. Everything was fine for a couple of weeks until I noticed my cell phone had stop receiving and sending text messages. I contacted customer care and they told me my phone never had the plan for free text and web and that I would need to add money to my cash account if I wanted to use text and web. Of course I was bewildered by all of this, especially the cash account thing since I have "pay as you go" and if there was no cash on my account how come I'm still making and receiving calls? Customer care stated I changed my plan and I need to add cash to my account; at this point I had already given over $120 dollars for the month (I use the phone a lot). Customer care was useless and we began to just start talking in circles. I referred to their ads for 1500 minutes and FREE anytime text and web.

For anyone thinking of using Virgin Mobile you better think again! Also my rate changed from $0.05 cents per minute to $0.20 cents per minute after that phone call FYI. What a bunch of sleazy ###!

    quit crying an read their brochures the 1500 minute plan is for 30 dollars and includes 500 messages and 10 mb's of interntet usage if you use your phone a lot then this probably isnt the right plan for you they have a 60 dollar unlimited plan, but they dont advertise a 30 dollar unlimited plan cheapskate.

    Do not trust Virgin Mobile. I currently have internet access with them using a usb stick device that they sold me. Every month they rip me off for some of the megabytes I buy to use the usb stick device. I wish I never bought it. I am stuck for awhile till I can buy a device from another provider. Tell everyone you know that VM is a scam company. Use to be good...but not now. Good luck...I hope you are able to resolve the problem. I have been unsucessful in dealing with their customer service. Hope you have better luck than me.
