So does that mean we need to pay $35 next month? Or do we keep paying the $25 that we've been paying?

not sure, but since we don't have a contract, it will probably be $35.

Existing Beyond Talk Virgin Mobile customers as of July 19 can keep their current plan pricing as long as they don't let their account expire, and they can upgrade to new devices without incurring additional costs.

Beginning in October 2011, Virgin Mobile will also move to reduce data speeds when a customer's data usage exceeds 2.5GB in a month but still provide unlimited 3G access without a contract, usage cap, overage or activation fees. Based on current usage patterns, fewer than 3 percent of Virgin Mobile USA customers use more than 2.5GB of data usage per month. After reaching this level, this minority of customers may experience slower page loads, file downloads and streaming media. When a customer's next month begins, the data usage meter starts back at zero with unlimited 3G speeds.

Sarcast, i think you need a phone to sign up for the plan. just buy a cheapie one ($30) and activate before 7/20/2011. They allow the account to be inactive for up to 90 days, so you can top up every 3 months to keep the plan going if you don't plan on using it full time.
