    I've been using this one by Jay Goel for roughly a year, and it's still working smoothly. Is there something different in the one you have, or is it the official VM USA app? If so, I might rather use yours hehe.

    Do you have "Charged On:" field empty and days graph(the black one) missing from the widget?

    It's the same with some new code added to reflect the recent VM web page HTML code change after which the passed days graph disappeared from the widget and the app doesn't know the days left to the next month sevice. Also they changed the code for the monthly charge. And on top of that code changes depending on current account balance.
    That means the app needs to account for I don't know how many different situations now. I tested 2 of them so far but they are maybe more...

    Hrm.. the pie graph widget works just fine (mines light gray with Android green to show time used), and the "Charged on:" field is set to the new billing cycle date. Everything is correct in mine.

    Maybe it wont break until I go to renew my billing on the 5th?

    Hmm... The official version doesn't work on mine. Maybe code change is not for all plans?! I'm on $35 Beyond Talk plan.

    That might be it. I'm on the grandfathered $25.00 a month plan.

    The original version had stopped working for me and I am on the $45/month plan (old guy who actually still TALKS on a phone). I had to uninstall the old version to install this new one. It wouldn't install over the old. And it looks like it's working fine.

    I'm using the same one that NoNameFace is and I'm on the $25.00 plan.
    Works great, never had a problem.

    Check out the 'Minutes Checker Free' app by Monty Kamath in the Market. It has a widget and popups after calls and works with multiple accounts to check your Virgin Mobile USA Beyond talk minutes. I'd post a link but the forum won't let me. Just search for 'Minutes Checker Free' and pick the one by Monty Kamath with a white icon that has a red V in it.

    I had minutes checker on mine but it does not work on the phone anymore so uninstalled it.

    Jay Goel's app stopped working for me after I flashed an updated ROM. Wouldn't sign in to the VM site. And after months of complaints on his Play Store page and after months of ignored emails, I assume Mr. Goel has moved on from that app.

    However, two new working Minutes Checker apps just launched in Play Store in the past week. Both are even better and more reliable than Mr. Goel's was. I prefer this first one, since it's smaller, has no ads and shows data usage in the widget:

    Virgin Mobile Minutes by Marcin Grabowski

    The other one by Monty Kamath (now shows data usage but not in widget):

    Minutes Checker Free by Monty Kamath

    Both are good and have active development.
