What do you think of Virgin mobile's plan?
I think Virgin Mobile is an okay plan. I use that service for my 12 yr old's phone. She basically texts, and the service is pretty good.
I've had Virgin Mobile for about 2 months now and I love it. I pay $25.00 a month for unlimited text and internet, but only get 300 minutes (they have recently raised this plan to $35 a month, but I'm still grandfathered in at $250).
THe plan works great for me, I hate talking on the phone, so I never go over my 300 minutes, they do offer a plan for $45 which includes everything i mentioned plus 1500 talk minutes.
The signal is good, it runs off Sprint's network. I usually always have a good signal for making calls or using the phones 3G internet. So unless you're in the boonies, far from any cell towers, this plan is perfect!
The phone i bought was the LG Optimus V for $150.00. It's a nice little Android phone that does everything I need and has a nice sized touchscreen and all that other jazz.
Never been happier, I'm saving $40 a month form what i used to pay with t-mobile and see no difference in service!!!
I have Virgin and I don't know why anybody uses any other phone service. I love my LG android, I pay less than $60 a month for unlimited everything, The customer service is not great but I've noticed improvement. There are places where I don't have reception but then, most people don't have reception in those same areas. I love my phone and my service, why wouldn't I?
Kick ass, I've been a Virgin Mobile user for about a year now and I saved lots of money. I figure I've saved about $600 from what I used to pay on Verizon without a smartphone.
yeah why not virgin mobiles plan. i think there good. i have the motorola triumph and i only pay 27 a month with unlimited web text and 300 airtime minutes. i can go to 1300 but i dont feel like paying 45 a month
How are you only paying $27 a month? Didn't Virgin Mobile increase their rates to $35 a month for their 300 minutes plan?
What about the Samsung Prevail only 180$ for the phone on boost mobile's 50$ plan with shrinkage so u pay less every 6 months thats what i use
I have this phone its great and the network is fast! I'm on the shrinkage so I'm at 40.00 a mo. I love boost best deal out there
I like Virgin Mobile....have been a customers for years. their $55 dollar plan included everything Unlimited Calls, Text and Web...plus I don't have to pay an additional fee for my Blackberry Phone. Awesome deal!
Stay away from Samsung Nexus S !! especially your are in Canada. Check out the this link. The phone has problem with voice seach button since it released in April. Neither Samsung or Google admin any problem even now. Leaving thousands upset customers in the air. Will I buy any product from Samsung or Google. Not! Disappointed that Google claims they are customers friendly company. http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Google+Mobile/thread?tid=49e8ca84071d51a4&hl=en&start=840
virgin mobile to me has the best plan for the money therre service is great and they have really good phones for reasonable prices. i would never go back to a contract phone.
Even better is lightyear wireless. They use sprint network but allow users to get free service with just 3 referrals. The service is only through referrals so feel free to check them out through my link http://fmbank.lightyearwireless.com/
Lightyear wireless offers customers a chance to get free service through referrals. unlimited Text, Talk and chat is only 59.99 my link is http://fmbank.lightyearwireless.com/
We have virgin mobiles my hubby & daughter have the BB Curve while me the tech junkie has the LG Android I love my phone just wish the coverage area was better but it covers most places I go. My plan is $25 a month 300 minutes unlimited text and net customer service is pretty good as well. There is a $10 extra charge a month for the BB's
how are you paying $25 a month? Didn't Virgin Mobile increase their rates to $35 a month for the 300 minute plan?
Hey,Guys, what do you think of a BB bold9000 white? What is the price in USA market?
why is it that just about every time I read a cell phone article posted through Yahoo it has false information.
T-Mobile does NOT charge a premium for using 4G services. They charge a whole lot less actually.
Please stop writing articles without getting all the facts right.
I think it is good 4 da kids to have cuz most of dem only text .
The information you have in here about T-Mobile is wrong. I am a employee for T-Mobile and have been so for 4 years. Out of those 4 years, T-Mobile has never charged a premium to use our 4G network. That title would go to Sprint. For they are the ones who charges this extra charge whenever you purchase a 4G device. With T-Mobile, there are no extra charges other than what it is you're signing up for. All of our 4G devices work on our 4G network without any addition fees to do so.
Sorry, but you are wrong about Sprint as well. They dropped the charge and changed the price of their plan by $10 now. And T-Mobile does not have a 4G network, you have an enhanced 3G network, so quit misstating the facts about the nature of your network, as HSPA+ is NOT 4G!
Well to fill you in NO carrier in America has 4G. Sorry you had the wrong info.
The author may have been referring to the fact that when you buy any smartphone with T-Mobile, the company REQUIRES you to pay for a data plan ... their excuse - they want to make sure you can enjoy everything the phone can do.
So I quit T-Mobile and went with Straight Talk ... not only am I saving approximately $15 per month, I get better reception - I've never been happier!
T-Mobile doesn't REQUIRE a data plan. I had a Sidekick for 2 months without any data at all. It was pretty lame because basically all I could do was text or talk. Either way I somehow managed to get around it?
Which of these plans offer pay-by-the-minute type of deals? I expect usage variablity to be wide, ranging up from as low as 30 minutes a month. Which plans would be line for this type of usage?
I don't know why nobody has mentioned TRACFONE as a cellphone carrier. They're 100% prepaid, no monthly costs, no contracts, nothing to tie 1 down.
Back in 2007, we took a cross-country drive from NC to Las Vegas, with stops in-between at Phoenix, Grand Canyon, & Denver, CO. Our TRACFONES worked everywhere, except for 1 little area between Green River, UT & the CO border. Everywhere else? Not 1 single problem with reception.
I've heard that TRACFONE can use everyone else's cell towers for transmission, so there's pretty much good reception wherever 1 is headed. I've been a loyal customer of their's for 6 yrs now & if you don't need all the bells & whistles that the monthly-charged carriers have, there's no question as to who to use for your cellphone service.
TRACFONE sounds very interesting. Can this service be used to call the US from overseas ... particularly Asia? Also, would you happen to have suggestions on good phone models one can use with TRACFONE?
There is one other option in the Prepaid category that wasn't mentioned, Wal-Mart's Straight Talk program. For $30 a month, they offer 1000 talk minutes,1000 texts,and 30MB of Data. They also have a $45 unlimited plan as well. If you buy your phone online, some come with the first month's service free.
I've used Virgin for years and am getting ready to buy their new Motorola Triumph smartphone. Kind of expensive, but pretty close to having all of the latest Android features.
They failed to mention Straigt Talk.
Granted, they just recently came out with an Android phone in the past month, but you can't beat the unlimited $45 pricing plan!
Also, I have yet to experience bad reception with their phones in a variety of locations, some extremely remote.
