Virgin Mobile thinks it can do better than T-Mobile’s UnCarrier plans, which is why it has started an aggressive campaign to attract T-Mobile customers to its unlimited plans and offering them $100 worth of credit in the process. The campaign has a pretty strange ad, featuring The Flaming Lips’ lead singer Wayne Coyne and inviting users to “retrain their brain”.
An example for the offer, as you can see in the image below, includes, just like the T-Mobile plan it’s compared to, unlimited data, messages and talk time, as well as 4G, but also gets the customer $100 in credit and costs $55 a month instead of the $60 of the T-Mobile plan. More than that, the Samsung Galaxy SII 4G is cheaper by $114.
You don’t have to pick the $55 plan Virgin Mobile, though, as plans in the offer start at $35, and you can choose from a bunch of other smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G or the HTC One V. As for the $100, you’ll get it as credit once you’ve bought a phone, switched your T-Mobile number and made a payment (the offer lasts until May 31st).
And even if you don’t decide to switch, the ad is still well worth watching:
