Master Reset?

I plan to recycle my old VM phones, but I want to wipe them of all my personal data. I'm not seeing a way to do a master reset/clear in the menus. Any ideas? I'm doing a Flare and an Aloha.

3 Month Virgin User -- I QUIT!

I am posting this so that hopefully anyone who is looking for information about Virgin does not have to go through the same crap I did.
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. ...

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?

Virgin Mobile connection

Sad Every time I buy a new data pack with Virgin Mobile I cannot connect to the web. I get the error Server Not Responding. The so called tech people have no clue what is going on. They told me in October the problem was my phone. So I bought a new phone. Same problem happened yesterday when I bought the new data pack. Server Not Responding. Anybody have any clues what is going on, because the people at VM certainly have no clue.

Virgin Mobile Obamaphone?

I keep hearing that Virgin will be giving free phones to poor people and welfare recipients starting very soon.

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!

Anyone else having texting problems??

I have the rumor2. I bought it Monday night and ported it in from an ATT contract account. It only took an hour and I was very happy. My phone worked great Monday @ 7PM when I activated it, until Tuesday, late morning around 11AM. Since then, I am getting no text messages, but people are still getting the ones I send them. I called customer service lastnight and they told me that the network is working and fine, and that my friends my not have really sent me a text. WTF? I watched them send me a text. Anyone else having this problem?

Are there any PDA/Smartphone type devices out for Virgin Mobile? I am looking for a windows mobile device if one exists, but have not seemed to have had any luck.

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.

Cell problem

I have had this Virgin Mobile 'LG' pre-paid for about two years now and this is the first time having problems with it.

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.

Any thoughts?
