“payLo by Virgin Mobile, with its 1,500-minute plan, caters to a growing number of consumers who have been paying for unlimited voice, messaging or data when all they really need is affordable talk time, and a lot of it,” commented Mark Lederman, director, payLo by Virgin Mobile. “At $30 per month, these customers can now save money while knowing they have the right service for their communication needs. The benefits provided by payLo’s $30 offer, combined with the Kyocera S2100 handset, reaffirm our commitment to providing overall value to our customers.”

In keeping with the requirements of voice-centric customers, Virgin Mobile is introducing the handset with a $30 plan which includes 1,500 domestic minutes, 500 domestic messages and 10MB of web access. Alternately, users who are not big on phone conversations can avail of two additional plans; a $20 plan for 400 domestic minutes that expires in a month and a Basic Rate 20 cents per domestic minute plan that is good for 90 days.
