This page explains all the rates & fees for services which are not 'standard'.
What is a Standard Call/Text/Photo?
A standard call/text/photo message is from your Virgin Mobile in Australia to a mobile phone or landline also in Australia. These are the basic numbers you use in everyday life: like calling a local business, texting your grandma in Wagga, or sending your jealous workmates a photo of yourself on holiday (in Oz).
What is a Special Number?
Special numbers are everything else. They include some of the numbers you'll use to contact us and to use your Virgin Mobile, as well the numbers used for voting on TV shows, information updates, entering competitions and buying ringtones, games and wallpapers.
19 rates in particular can vary so be sure you check the fine print when making a call or sending a text or photo to one of these numbers. The rate should be advertised together with the number.
If you're on a monthly plan, be aware that special numbers are generally not included as part of your monthly included value.
