Default Virgin Mobile prepaid phones...anyone tried them yet?

The local discount store where I get my disposable phones now has Virgin pre-paid phones for $15, but I am unclear on how many minutes come with (if any). They boast the you only pay on the days that you use them. Is anyone familiar with how the plans work as far as charges and if they work for verification purposes.

I use one, I didn't really pay attention to the prices. The main reason I use them is because you can change the number every 24 hrs. and they work with ebay and amazon.

But how much does it cost to change the numbers? Must have some idea.
Best deal I have found if you want to get some minutes with the phone is a NET10 that comes with 300 min for $20.
Minutes come in handy if you want to use it for selling stuff on craigslist too

It's free to change the number unless they didn't tell me, I've changed mine on their website many times no charges mentioned and they don't go by minutes they go by overall usage you just buy $10 top up card or use your credit card to add more usage.(text msg, internet, talk time, all combined)

They work as an active number for paypal, they don't work as a landline to confirm location though.

I have more then a few and let me tell you, they work. I only have changed the numbers a few times but it works perfectly. I picked them up brand new when they where on sale.
You can go on their website and buy them brand new for 15 for the non flip one and 9.99 for for the flip version. I personally like the flip phone cuz the battery lasts abit longer but they are currantly sold out of that one.

I have 2 of the flip versions with camera and 8 of the non flip, I usually keep 5 plugged in and 5 on me so I can always switch em out anytime the batteries low and yeah flip ones are my favorite.

If I get a chance tomorrow I will get a pic of it and post it.

I have only changed the number once on these phones.

The ones I never changed yet did not get this message.

Odd.

You can also use the prt sc (print screen) button on your keyboard along with crtl or the fn button and then click in the message box hit ctrl v and it will show right up.

If this gets implemented, there are still others who are cheaper.
