Unlimited Calls - Virgin Mobile to Virgin Mobile within Australia

You can make unlimited standard calls and send unlimited text messages within Australia to your friends on Virgin Mobile, anytime of day (a 'fair use' policy applies). Virgin Mobile is one of only a few carriers to offer this to their customers (check out our Guide to Free Calls on the Same Network to learn more about this feature and how it can save you money)

Rollover Credit

Virgin Mobile lets you rollover your unused calls and texts each month into the next month's credit. For example, if you have $100 call credit each month in your plan and you only use $50 worth, the remaining $50 can be added to your next month's credit, giving you $150. This rollover credit is only available for one month, after this time it is lost. Virgin Mobile will rollover your unused credit automatically. Data does not rollover (check out of Guide to Rollover Credit as to how this works and can help you with varying usage each month)
