Virgin $45 Plan: 400 Minutes, Unlimited Incoming, 5PM Evenings, 1GB Data


With the recent tweak of the Fido $39 per month plan to include 600MB of data, it was matched as expected by Koodo and Virgin. However, the latter has now launched a new $45/month plan which squeaks in between the $39 and $60 plans to offer the following:

  • 400 anytime minutes
  • 5pm evenings and weekends
  • Unlimited incoming calls
  • Includes Canadian long distance
  • Unlimited SMS/MMS
  • Voicemail 10, call display, call waiting, 3 way call
  • 1GB of data

If you bring your own device (such as an unlocked iPhone), you get 10% off your monthly bill, bringing this plan down to $40.50 plus taxes, which makes for a very decent deal if you are able to stick to 1GB of data per month.

You should be able to call in and make the switch to this plan. Let us know if you’re going to jump on this!

    Gotta give these 3 companies credit for creating some competition. My wife just cancelled with Telus and went with $60 gold plan. Also collected on the 10% off for bringing her own phone over.

  • The plans are pretty good for casual users, decent monthly price.

    This plan has been out for a bit, I switched about 2 billing cycles back. Happy with the plan with the 10% discount. Even if I go over the 1GB it’s still only $50 for 2GB (better than the $60/2GB plan imho) as I don’t consistently break 1GB and can save extra money every month over more expensive plans (wifi at work and home helps). Heads up that Virgin’s billing systems still can’t automatically deduct 10% from the bill for BYOD (working on it…) so I have had to call in to get a credit every month so far.


    I switched from Fido to Virgin and got this plan in April 🙂
    The best feature for me is the Unlimited Incoming Calls.

    At the moment i’m with Bell ; nice service, great coverage. My plan costs me 60$/month for 1GB of data, 200minutes, unlimited text/video/photo messaging, message center and call display. I actually love this plan, but the price is kind of high. I’m planning on changing company when I’ll get the new iPhone that’ll be announced. I like to see Virgin has some nice offers, but yet doesn’t seem so great (not a fan of the balance). I guess i’ll try to argue with the Bell representative to get a better price…

    “nice service” O_o??

    Yes, many users complain but I actually never had any problems with them, have you ?
