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

Does anyone have any new info about releases and dates?

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.

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!
