For those who want a smartphone but don't want to pay the high prices of a data plan, Virgin Mobile now has the answer.

The company just unveiled a new smartphone plan that only costs $20 a month and comes with absolutely no data.

Having a data plan allows customers to access the internet anywhere they have enough signal, but customers who buy the $20 a month plan from Virgin will have to solely rely on accessing the internet with Wi-Fi.

The $20 plan also provides the customer with 300 minutes of talk time and unlimited text messaging.

For those who don't want to rely on Wi-Fi, the company will still offer more expensive plans with data included.

For $35, customers can purchase a plan with unlimited data, talk and text, with 250 MB high-speed and then slower after that runs out. They can also get unlimited data and text, 300 minutes, and unlimited data with 2.5 GB high-speed for the $35 price tag. Pete Pachal of Mashable thinks the new $20 plan is "either brilliantly obvious or just plain crazy."
