How Do I Recover a Lost Password or Pin for My Virgin Mobile Account?

Although Virgin Mobile merged with Boost Mobile and is no longer providing services, your account is intact since it's been transferred to Boost Mobile. So, if you forget your PIN, you have the same two options to retrieve it, calling 611 or going online. Contacting Boost's customer service or even exploring their support pages are both good options if you need more help.

Virgin Mobile was founded back in 2001 as one of the many non-contract options for smart phones and prepaid phones. It later merged with Boost Mobile in February 2020, but its dedication to affordable no contract options still remains although its name is no longer Virgin Mobile. Your PIN, phone number and account information stay the same. So, what happens if you lose access to your account? Usually losing access to your account means you forgot your password or username, but not with Boost Mobile. Your username is your phone number and you'll have a PIN instead of a password. This guide will show you the steps needed to retrieve your PIN.
