If he doesn't text that's a waste of $120 per year, the $20 plan is a better choice for him.

Also, Virgin Mobile uses the Sprint network, so you'll get coverage in most places in case of emergencies. I used them for two years and never had a complaint, switched to the $30/month TMobile $30 plan though a few days ago.

Texting does come in handy in some situations, such as leaving a simple message for something that isn't urgent, thereby not having to bother the receiving person. Especially if in class or somewhere else you can't take a call.

Also good for if you want to communicate with someone and for whatever reason you need to be quiet and can't/don't want to speak.

Also a faster way to get the message versus email, since you won't be receiving emails on your phone with no data plan.

One word comes to mind..."Sexting"

Without the ability to text or use data you'll be missing out on a very viable part of your post secondary education. thumb.gif

I'm just finishing my 4th year in post secondary and man...the things I've seen done through a phone wink.gif

Good Luck in your studies!!
