    Do Virgin Mobile minutes roll over? How about the bonus minutes?

    I'm talking specifically about the Beyond Talk plan.

    As VM points out though, 300 is a lot. Tracfone/Net10 have unlimited rollover plans, but their prices aren't comparable...

    It's apples and oranges. You either get a lot of stuff for cheap with no rollover and a shorter expiry (almost all monthly plans) or you pay more per unit/minute/text/meg but get to use them over a longer period of time.

    Net10 and Tracfone have VM's 20 cent a minute default rate beat cold.
    And their Net10 Unlimited and Straight Talk offerings give unlimited data/text at prices that rival or beat VM's unlimited plan.

    The industry prepaid trend is to get people on monthly plans with anytime minutes, no nights/weekends/m2m and no rollover.

    That way they have a nice steady income every 30 days. With no leftovers.
    VM is weak in this area.

    Canadian prepaid is better in that one regard , but it also costs more and is more akin to postpaid. Personally I think the US has the best deals in the hemisphere
