3 Month Virgin User -- I QUIT!
Obviously, this is a cheap phone service with not the best reception, nor the best selection of phones. If you need top of the range reception and a top of the range phone, obviously go to Verizon, etc. and get a Blackberry, etc... Everyone who goes to Virgin is, I presume, looking for a no frills company with no frills phones and cheap monthly bills.
With that in mind, here is my experience.
I selected Virgin because I thought they had cheaper phones than MetroPCS, and more coverage area. (Im in LA, CA). I got an LG slider phone with qwerty keyboard (forgot the model#) which works OK for what it is. ...
new plans and phones
AD more discussions below...
I called Virgin Mobile the other day and asked what new phones they would be offering. He wouldn't say, but I believe that they are coming out with the Kyocera Torino very soon, and perhaps a higher-end touch screen phone. I have the Rumor2 now and really like it, but I like the form factor of the Torino...more Blackberry-like. Since Boost Mobile has really beefed up its line to include the Blackberry, it's only a matter of time before Virgin follows suit.
Does anyone have any new info about releases and dates?
Has any one heard?

Virgin Mobile Obamaphone?
While this may earn them and Sprint brownie points, it makes our Virgin phones look like ghetto phones and I'm not happy about this at all.
Have you guys heard anything about this? They seems to be keeping it quiet but the story is leaking out.
How do you feel about people looking at your phone like its a ghetto accessory or something from a trailer park?
I don't like it!
Can i use a usb cord on my X-tc Virgin Mobile and music will go to my music player?
Anyone else having texting problems??
If there are none available, does anybody know if a phone from Sprint or Verizon can be flashed to work with Virgin? And as a last resort, can I use a Virgin Mobile Canada phone (Blackberry or the such) on a US Virgin Mobile plan?
Any advice would be appreciated. I am trying to find a decent prepaid plan with unlimited voice and data...having little to no results.
I don't know if it's a feature I have overlooked, bad battery, being locked onto a bad cell tower or just the phone itself that has gone bad.
It started about three days ago.
1. Incoming calls go straight to voicemail.
2. Outcalls get a busy signal and I get a message pop-up saying 'Bad Service' (something like that)
3. This happens daily, but not always, but more than I like.
Don't know If this happened to someone else and can be fixed or should I just drop the $20.00 for a new phone.
