As in, ONLY VIRGIN MOBILE PHONES.
ANY Virgin Mobile phone can be activated on the Beyond Talk plans.
The Kyocera Loft, LG Rumor2, LG Rumor Touch, and BB Curve can ONLY be activated on the Beyond Talk plans.
- The Kyocera X-tc is available for $34.99 at some Target stores, some Best Buy stores for $49.99, and some Walmart stores for $79.99. This is completely YMMV.
- The Kyocera Jax is available from Walmart.com for $8.88 plus tax and shipping, and it is available in Black.
- The Kyocera TNT! is available directly from Virgin Mobile for $9.99, which is $10 off regular price.
- The LG Rumor Touch is available at Best Buy for $129.99, YMMV.
Quote :Q: Can I use the Blackberry without paying extra for BIS/BES?
A: Officially, no. Unofficially, maybe. Some people report this being possible, but VM says no :
Beyond talk plans for BlackBerry require the purchase of a Virgin Mobile BlackBerry Smartphone. Access to corporate email is not included or available. BlackBerry Smartphones not available in all stores.
Q: Does VM have good coverage in my area?
A: Does Sprint have good coverage sans roaming coverage? If not, then no, VM won't likely have good coverage. If yes, then probably. Still, some chances of YMMV.
Quote :Virgin Mobile USA: Sprint says that Virgin Mobile will serve as its high-end pre-paid service, and it will offer advanced devices with plans that place more emphasis on texting and web use rather than voice use. Starting May 12, $25 will get users unlimited messaging, email, data and web with 300 minutes per month. The $40 plan bumps the minutes offered up to 1,200, and $60 per month buys unlimited everything. The plans are called "Beyond Talk." Users will be able to add BlackBerry services to any of these plans for just $10 more per month. Virgin's Broadband2Go will still fall under this set of plans. It provides no-contract wireless broadband for devices such as laptops. Sprint indicated that Broadband2Go could take advantage of "4G" services at some point, though Sprint didn't specifically say WiMax.
You can ONLY use Virgin Mobile branded phones on Virgin Mobile. They will not activate any other phone, even if it is from Sprint.
