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.
The closest thing to a smartphone would be the Ocean 2, which is on the contract/helio side of things. It has basically everything, but uses its own operating system, and not Windows Mobile. Also, Helio has better coverage as it has an agreement with Verizon to roam on its network. So, if you go off Sprint, you will use Verizon. That basically covers everywhere.

why would you want to pay 49.99 a month for just calling when you can pay a penny more with boost 50.00 and get unlimited calling, text, picture messaging, web, Walkie Talky, and alot better customer service.

I have been with Virgin Mobile for over a year now and they are extremely reliable.
