Below are some clips we've found from Virgin Mobile's phone menus and tips that help give an idea of what you will encounter when you call. We've highlighted why they are important as well:

They may need the phone number on your account

"Hi. Thanks for calling Boost Mobile. Calls are recorded to improve your experience. I don't recognize the number you're calling from. If you've received a SIM kit or phone, and need help with an activation, say activation. If you were calling about your existing Boost account, say yes or press one.
If you are interested in learning more about starting new service, say sign up or press two.
Including the area code, what's the phone number you're calling about?"

What are the hours and when should I call?

Virgin Mobile operates the call center for this 866-402-7366 phone number Mon-Fri 4am-8pm, Sat-Sun 4am-7pm PT. The short answer is that you should call on a Wednesday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 659 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).

Automatically call when they open

When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the Virgin Mobile call center opens before trying to call. It will ask your permission before it places the call, so you can also further delay that scheduled call until you are ready. But that means you can "set it and forget it" ahead of time.
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Virgin Mobile phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Virgin Mobile staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Virgin Mobile is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Monday, which averages 115% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 659 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Tuesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Thursday.
But if you use our free call and talk for me or wait on hold for me service, you don't really need to worry about average wait times.

The best time to call Virgin Mobile

In summation, the best day to call Virgin Mobile is Wednesday.

Calling this Virgin Mobile Customer Number

Jeff Whelpley is the editor / author responsible for this content.
Nov 20, 2023

This number is intended for those seeking customer service or information from Boost Mobile. Former customers of Virgin Mobile can also call this line for customer support, as Virgin Mobile transferred its U.S. customers to Boost in 2020.

Although this number was previously a Virgin Mobile customer support line, it makes no mention of this fact when you dial the number today. When I called, I was greeted by an automated message thanking me for calling Boost Mobile.

Boost’s automation software immediately recognized that I was calling from a number not associated with a current Boost account. In fact, I was calling in an attempt to find out whether or not my phone was eligible to be switched from my current carrier to Boost Mobile.

The customer service line doesn’t have a traditional automated menu structure. Instead, it employs an automated voice that prompts you through the call. While this might sound good in theory — no sitting through a bunch of menu options that don’t apply to you — in practice, the voice prompts feel a bit like an interrogation.

After being correctly identified as a non-Boost customer, I attempted to voice my desire to get information about my phone’s eligibility for service on Boost. No matter how I tried to word this request, it was unsuccessful. I made four different attempts and each time I was informed that the automated system did not understand what I wanted. Each time it provided examples of things I could ask for — you can say things like, “payment,” “activate,” or “balance” — but even shortening my request down to one word like “eligible” or “switch” didn’t do the trick.

I can’t say whether the problem was with the words I was choosing, my propensity for not enunciating clearly, or my phone connection, but it was clear I wasn’t going to get much out of Boost’s voice-prompt system. Eventually, the automated system acknowledged the futility of the effort as well, and my call was forwarded to the customer service center.

Before being connected to a live representative, I did hear another automated message, a no-nonsense voice informing me that Boost charges a $4 agent fee to make a payment through a human representative. I was then told that the current wait time would be eight minutes and given instructions for how to pay my bill online through Boost’s website. 

There was no option for a callback, so I waited on hold for just over five minutes. When I was finally connected to a Boost representative, I was quite thankful to be speaking to someone who could actually understand my voice. Unfortunately, after a quick check of my phone’s IMEI number, the rep informed me that my phone was locked to my current carrier and not eligible for service with Boost. 

I found Boost’s automated menu difficult to work through. The system doesn’t give you many prompts, so you’re left guessing about which words it might understand well enough to get you to the next stage. I imagine customers calling with a more straightforward issue — like making a payment or checking a balance — would have an easier time navigating the system.

More Virgin Mobile Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact Virgin Mobile customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

Virgin Mobile Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter)

@VMUCare - Customer Service
Customer service Twitter feed
Virgin Mobile, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.

Virgin Mobile Customer Service on Facebook / Messenger

Some customer service teams, like that of Virgin Mobile, accept inquiries through Facebook Messenger. This is a good option if you have a Facebook account, and you may even be able to converse live with an agent this way.

Virgin Mobile Customer Help Desk / Web Support - Customer Service
Customer service online support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Virgin Mobile customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
