Virgin Mobile USA has been a consumer champion in the no-contract wireless industry since 2002.
Now the wireless company is teaming up with Walmart to offer a contract-free data-sharing plan called “Data Done Right.”
The plans will start at $30 per line. But the real clincher, I think, is the offering of $65 total for 2 lines of unlimited talk/text and 4 GB data. It’s a better deal than Straight Talk for 2 people.
The “Data Done Right” sharing plan, which officially launches on Saturday, looks like it’s limited to only 4 phones at this time: the HTC Desire 510 ($99), LG Tribute ($79), Samsung Galaxy Core Prime ($129) and LG Volt ($149). More devices should be available by the end of next month, according to a USA TODAY article.
