I'm ready to scream

Got my kids all new phones for christmas. I
went online and activated them on Christmas
eve so that they would be ready on Christmas
morning. Everything works except the
picture messaging. I cannot send my kids a
picture message to save my life. It's all
three phones too. Two of my kids have the
Rumor Touch and one has the Rumor 2. I have
called Virgin Mobile 7 times since Christmas
and all they can say is "We are working on it".
This is so irritating. I want to be told
when and how you're going to fix it, not
"we are working on it". I am about to cancel
all three accounts if this isn't fixed
within the next day or two.

LG Optimus - Required Plan?

With the new android I have been told different things depending on the store. Am hoping maybe I can figure out the right answer by asking on here.

Do you have to have the Beyond Talk plan or can you have a Pay Lo plan since the $30.00 includes data.

Reason I ask, they have a few of the new LG phones in stock and I see online it's backordered. I recently just made a payment for the $30 plan before knowing about thsi new phone.

Would it work on the PayLo plan? If I get the phone, I plan to switch to the $40 Beyond Talk Plan in a few weeks when my month is over.

Thanks

2 Questions about VM

One is that i just resigned my contract with Verizon in August because i was thinking about switching at first until i changed my mind now that i saw Virgin Mobiles Plans. I was like wow thats alot cheaper than what im paying now, and averagely i only use about 200 or maybe less minutes and for 25 a month i get 300 mins, unlimited text and data which is alot cheaper than 66 a month or 75. But question is it worth breaking my contract now for 330 (whichever the ETF for my smartphone is) to go to VM?

Also if i can get a Jailbroken iPhone 4, can i use it with VM?

iPhone on VM

Now that Apple just announced that it's going to offer a CDMA iPhone for Verizon, if I were able to get an unlocked CDMA iPhone, could I set it up on VM? What about anyone else's CDMA phones? I'm not happy with any of the VM Beyond phones.

Thanks

Recent changes to plans (for the worse)

So, I've used VM for years for my kids and it used to be that I would top up their phone with $10 and out of that $10, I would buy $5.00 messaging package that brought the cost of messages to .05. Now VM has done away with that nicety. They've replaced with a whole bunch of expensive monthly contracts instead when my 10 year old really just needs a few messages per month. Sad

Looks like I'm moving to AT&T which still has the monthly $5.00 for 200 messages packages.

Just be aware that VM is no longer a value choice for pay as you go customers.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to all!

Wireless Portability Hell...

Just ported both my folks over from Sprint to Virgin. And EGADS, what a pain in the ass.

Lessons learned:

--You can't just activate a Virgin Mobile handset online and expect a wireless portability option to pop up. I tried activating the first of two new phones and got a brand new Virgin Mobile phone number. You have to call into Virgin to port any numbers from your old carrier. You cannot do this online. Is it 2002 again and nobody told me?

--The call centers are in India, so you're going to be speaking to Indian reps. Which I had no problem with, since Indians speak the Queen's English (and better English than anyone in South Florida). How do they handle themselves as reps? Well, some were going by a script and weren't much help....

Does anyone know....

If you can use homemade ringtones on the LG Rumor Touch and the LG Rumor 2 on Virgin Mobile? I make my own ringtones and was wondering if I could send them to these phones and use them as ringtones. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Smile

couple of questions about virgin mobile

is it nationwide? can i take it to any state or do i have to stay in an area like cricket?

are there lots of hidden fees like at&t and tmobile? how much do you pay in extra fees on average?

how fast is the 3G?

what are the cons of virgin mobile?

right now i have cricket and i think its great but virgin mobile's 25 dollar plan sounds better since i barely use minutes and it looks like virgin has better phones.

thanks in advance

Question to the Virgins

How many virgin mobile users actually post on here? Let me refine my question, how many of you on this site use the virgin mobile pre-paid phone as your main, personal cell phone? I'm curious as to how you like it, and why. That is my question. Thank you.

Do it right---and Virgin is GREAT!!

Has anyone been to the Virgin Mobile website lately? It seems as though a lot of people have the $50 unlimited talk plan.

I found out about Virgin Mobile through a TV program that mentioned VM's "Broadband 2 Go" plan. After researching it, and the "Beyond Talk" plan, thoroughly, I was sold.

I said good-bye to Verizon Wireless which I had for 8 years, and dove head first into the VM "Beyond Talk" plan.

Since my phone is not my life, I went with the $25 plan (unlimited free web, free messaging, and email, plus 300 min of talk) which is plenty for me. I ended up cutting my monthly phone expenses in half, got exactly what I needed and more, without being tied to a contract.

As with a previous post, I too had some difficulty with V...
