How Will VM Compete?
Granted, these services each deploy their own infrastructure and limit roaming*.
However, Boost Mobile, which traditionally has offered pay-as-you-go voice and PTT on Sprint Nextel's iDEN network, is now offering unlimited local and long distance in select metro areas on Sprint's CDMA network.

new phone connects only to American Roaming Network
Here's the problem:
It connects only to the American Roaming Network. If I try to make an outgoing call, I hear a recorded message from American Roaming Network advising me that the call will cost several dollars. If I try to make an incoming call, I get only the Virgin voicemail.
I know there's a strong Sprint PCS signal because I've can detect it with my other phone, a Sprint phone with a Sprint account - so the problem is not a lack of signal.
That's 15 hours after I activated the phone.
I phoned Virgin's customer se...
LG aloha schematic?
I recently purchased a new phone (LG Aloha) as the Slice blew IMO.

+connecting tone (not sure what that one is called)
I know where all the keys are; I just have no idea how the menu is laid out and don't want to start arrowing down and start browsing the 'Web (I did that once before and got a bill that was five dollars over due to me arrowing into the wrong menu).
Any help would be appreciated, as I'm really stuck and just wanna' change the ringtones and basic stuff li...

Virgin Mobile UK phones in the USA?
I was wondering if it is possible to import a Virgin Mobile UK pay-as-you-go phone and set it up to be used here in the United States? They have such better phones over there... Razr, Krazr and others.
My bad day with VMCS
2/6/07 one to replace my moms Kyocera 2255 and the other just as another **** phone to take to the beach or some other risky environment for electronics. Since there more less free when considering the free $20. air time I would need to buy anyways.
So when I saw they changed the terms on 2/7/07 I decided to shoot them an e-mail to verify I get the 2/6/07 terms
It was finally straightened out in the end.
I get this reply
so they reply
Thanks for contacting us here at Virgin Mobile.
