: Yes, you do have to buy a Virgin Mobile phone. All you have to do is go on their website,, buy the phone, and activate it with any of their $35, $45, $55 plans. If you'd like to keep your number from AT&T, they will give you the option to transfer your number from AT&T at time of activation.

: Yes, you have to buy one of their phones with Virgin Mobile.

Since you're thinking about switching carriers I'd recommend Ting - they use the same network as Virgin Mobile but Virgin Mobile does not have roaming. Ting gives you free voice roaming on Verizon so you get much more coverage with Ting service.

Ting has no contracts, and they have many phones available. With Ting, you don't pick a plan and just get billed for whichever tier of usage you fall under for that month - some examples under $35:

1. $17 per month - 100 minutes and 2,000 texts.
2. $20 a month - 500 minutes and 1,000 texts.
3. $23 a month - 100 minutes, 4,000 texts, 100MB data.
4. $27 a month - 100 minutes, 1,000 texts, 500MB data.
5. $29 a month - 500 minutes, 4,000 texts, 100MB data.
6. $33 per month - 500 minutes, 1,000 texts, and 500MB data.

You can save $25.00 if you click the link below when you sign up with Ting:

If you check out their site today but don't sign up until 3 - 4 weeks from now, use that link when you actually sign up to get the $25 discount.
