Virgin Mobile GSM has introduced free local and national SMS to subscribers on their minute plan without any special pack. This offer is applicable for only those customers who have subscribed to “Per Minute Plan” paying Rs.1.5 as their daily rental. However, other customers can also avail this offer by switching to “Per Second” plan. This can be done by recharging with Rs.13, which offers a talk time of Rs 10 as well.
Virgin Mobile allows you to send up to 1000 SMS per day within the same network (Local and National) and 100 local SMS per day to any other network. In case you exceed the messaging limit, you will be charged 50 paise/SMS.
Virgin Mobiles had recently launched a SMS Pack (providing Free National and Local SMS) for its GSM prepaid users for Rs 69. Now it has come up with free SMS’s on Per Minute Plan. This is certainly a smart move, as it will force more people to switch to Per Minute Plan.
