Virgin tells Prepaid customers it costs $1 to have them top up for you

Just because Virgin has been getting some stellar devices recently doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten their roots. Today they have posted a message to Prepaid customers who call in to top up will be dinged a buck:

“Heads-up, there’s a $1 charge to have one of our Care Specialists top up for you. You can top up for free online or by hitting #999 on your Virgin Mobile phone.” They also state that they “we’ve got some important pricing changes that are happening to your Virgin Mobile account.”

Thanks Virgin! Price changes are good when they go down, not up.
