Best Buy

If I was to buy a Virgin Mobile phone from Best Buy would that work that same as if I were to order one from the Virgin Mobile website? Would I just switch my phone plan over to that phone and would there be no extra charges or activation fees?

Hiya!

It is the same but bestbuy could be a little more pricy.

Aso for when you say 'Would I just switch my phone plan over to that phone and would there be no extra charges or activation fees?' what may you referring to?


If you are a current customer with VMU all you would do is switch your phones in the account settings of 'My Account'
Which you can find here: https://myaccount.virginmobileusa.com/myaccount/home.do

Then log in once logged on, on the right side you should see swamp devices. Click that and follow the instructions.

If your a new customer: https://myaccount.virginmobileusa.com/primary/activations-home

You will follow the imprompt instructions and choose a plan.


There is never an activation fee with VMU

Have a great day!

Yes, I bought my last phone from Best Buy during a black Friday sale. as long as it comes in the VirginMobile box, it's easy to switch them out. You can do it right on the VM website!

As long as it is a VM phone it makes no difference where you buy it.
