That was disappointing, to say the least, but it was only the beginning. The reason I'm asking is Sprint is selling the phone cheaper. Sprint retained the Virgin Mobile name after the deal closed. I realize it'd have to be a Sprint network compatable phone, but other than that, could I? They should call it Virgin Nobile Virgin Mobile In a nutshell, my Genius Bar Genius who, I just have to say, really needed a shower couldn't get the replacement phone activated. I know because my Optimus S became unusable thanks to Google Play Services. I know a few folks who have been booted for using to much data or texts on both.
The process would take 2 to 4 hours, after which I'd receive a call back. This was also true with a previous experience a couple months back. Although the both use the same tower! Was it the cheapest possible way to get the model I wanted? It may be easiest to migrate your number to their service instead. If not you can load the correct sprint prl yourself. Should be good to go within two hours. Nobody has posted anything as far as personal experiences.
I'm not sure exactly how this works, but see the thread on the front page for more detail. If I get an iPhone on Sprint or if I buy a used iPhone, can I move it onto Virgin Mobile? Purchase and experience Virgin Mobile on the Web and at Facebook, Twitter, You Tube and. There's no technical reason for that to be the case. Has anyone tried anything like this? However, this courteous and apologetic rep told me they could make the switch at their end. Same for Nextel and Boost As you know theres kits out there to unlock so you can use any carrier of choice also.
If your phone isn't compatible, then we've got the phones you really want. But if you dont believe, me, try it, and you'll see. By the way, if you need to reach Virgin Mobile phone support for an activation issue, call 888-322-1122, enter your mobile phone number when prompted, then press 4, then 2, then 2 again. I'd have to go back to the store. Top-Up cards are available at approximately 150,000 locations nationwide and can be used for Broadband2Go services. I waited five hours -- no call.
That's not to say it's impossible, though. Here's where it gets even more interesting. The second visit seemed to go smoother. Things seem to be changing though, perhaps contacting them would be your best move. If there's a back door way of circumventing that maybe someone else can tell you how that can be done.
No more discussion on the subject myself. They use Sprint's network, and only Sprint's network. The new offering comes as in the wireless market, with consumers come out as the big winners. So it's back to the Apple Store, and I get to go through all of this yet again. They had to have someone go in and buy a new device in order to get service, and of course a new number. If they will not unlock your phone thru virgin support then you can apways use cdma workshop to provision the phone to sprint towers and call sprint to send a provision request to receive the correct prl. If you can get Virgin to unlock it, then it should work.
Since virgin uses sprint, there is a small possibility if this is a sprint iPhone that you might not have to have it unlocked. Apple Stores don't currently do screen repairs for the 5S, so what happens is they swap your whole phone -- same as if, say, your Wi-Fi stopped working. I have broadband from them, and considered changing from O2 to them, but they simply stated that they did not sell or support the iPhone. They speak in slightly accented English, but they're polite, apologetic, and seemingly very eager to help. Can you cite your reference to your claim that they will not work? However, last week I dropped the phone, busting its screen sob. I even bought it at the Sprint store and a Sprint employee set it up.
Have you ever had to replace a Virgin Mobile iPhone? Virgin Mobile branded devices are available at more than 40,000 retail stores, including Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target and Walmart. Later, Virgin will also have used iPhones available to qualify for the offer. I'm interested in if I can use my current iPhone 4 out of contract on the Virgin network as a prepaid or if I'd need to buy a new phone from them to do so. After 35 seemingly endless minutes, he returned. Quotes delayed at least 15 minutes. Sprint itself briefly offered a year of unlimited data service to customers who defected from the other big carriers. The Optimus V is an old 3G phone that's horribly outdated and almost unusable because the ever growing Google Play Services uses up all of its memory.
