Newsflash! Plenty of people barely use any of their voice minutes any more. It’s all texting, e-mailing, and webbing (webbing, right?) nowadays. Virgin Mobile knows this and, as such, will soon offer an unbelievably aggressive BlackBerry plan.

Since Virgin Mobile is a prepaid operator (it uses Sprint’s network), you’ll have to pony up the full $300 price for the BlackBerry Curve 8530 that’ll be available by the end of this month but once that’s out of the way, you’ll be able to get on a $35 per month plan that includes 300 voice minutes and unlimited text, e-mail, 3G web, and BlackBerry data service.

That’s all with no contract, too. The company will also be offering new plans starting May 12th. There’s a $25 plan with 300 minutes, a $40 plan with 1,200 minutes, and a $60 plan with unlimited minutes. Each of those plans includes unlimited text messages, e-mail, and web. Again, aggressive.
