Question to the Virgins


Aug 24, 2009, 6:48 PM
How many virgin mobile users actually post on here? Let me refine my question, how many of you on this site use the virgin mobile pre-paid phone as your main, personal cell phone? I'm curious as to how you like it, and why. That is my question. Thank you.

Just registered. I am on my second V.M. cell phone in three years. The first one I broke, but was able to keep number.

1. Inexpensive, about $20.00 for cell phone.

2. No locked-in contract.

3. Good reception- long distance calls, minutes and texts.

4. Games, graphics and ringtones are descent yet for me those are not a necessity.

I don't have that need to use it all the time and so it's simple and yet useful.

Now, I don't have internet service or pictures, but I don't need those features. That could be a drwback for people that need it.

Overall, for the time I've had the phone it's good.

Is it really a good company? I see them and the colors of read and black and the logo really turn me off, it makes me think of a chicken nugget that fell on the floor at the mall. (just the mental image I get from the logo)
I really don't see this company going anywhere but is it?

VM has really cheap rates, And you can do a monthly plan with out the hassel of a contract. Which is nice cause sometimes I would forget to top up lol Laughing. And they may not have the best phones but they are really good and duriable except for the nokia I had from them one time. And my VM ring tones are longer and cheaper then my ex's and he's with u.s cellular and my bill is alot cheaper then his is and I get alot more then he does! And just for the record Verizons prices are out rageous!

Verizon sucks for money, I say T-Mobile is good, and I say I love cheap cheap phones, I love a lot of stuff. I miss things.

I went to VM after tmobile because i didnt want another contract and couldnt get good reception/service with tmobile in my area.

The good with the bad. I LOVE Virgin Mobile. especially the unlimited talk for 49.99 good deal & I love my rumor they have now. Good signal never dropped calls or delayed text. I work in a hospital and get sevice in the basement - my coworkes cant. On the downside customers service SUCKS if you ever need to call. Its hard to get a live person at times. Oh and ringtones are not organized well so it can be a pain to find ringtones. Overall I really like Virgin mobile and thinks its the best prepaid around better than revol here in indy.

Now we are talking
some sort of crack pipe infrastructure going on eh?

no roaming? so for example in Puerto Rico it says that it has coverage there. If I travel there, i cant use the phone? or i just get coverage wherever sprint has coverage?

you get coverage where sprint gets coverage.
