You'll lose the $25 plan if you upgrade to this phone, FYI.
I'm glad to see it's not just me that has horrendous 3G speeds with VM/Sprint. My sister pays $85/month to Sprint for her plan and her 3G is just as bad. (I know people like to say you get "better towers" with the name-brand carrier, but it's just not true, at least not in the Chicago area.) I'm going to that 100 minute T-Mobile plan when I finally get fed up. I am sick of only being able to watch youtube videos 30% of the time. I mean, come on.
Hi, I thought Schaumburg Illinois have very good coverage?
One strange thing happened though in defense of Sprint. In Dutchess County, I got no coverage (data or phone) on my Virgin Mobile phone, but my old 2nd gen Kindle which I believe uses Sprint was able to download a book in the same location. That leads me to believe Sprint gives Virgin Mobile and Boost customers a lower tier of service - e.g. less towers. They always say this, but I'm not sure exactly what it means concretely.
Thanks OP! I missed out when it was 20% off on VM's site. I bought this time, even w/ tax and shipping it still comes out equal to VM's current sale price. I would have never thought to check here!!! I wasn't able to use any additional promo codes but I'm just happy with the lowest price I've seen in a month! Tried to rep but it said I had to spread around. TY!!!!
Terrible at Swype and mobile posting in general. Sorry in advance.
No, I bought myself the G S III a few weeks ago and received the credit. I currently have one VM phone that my wife uses. I bought the phone and used the same name and mailing address as I did on the other phone. The only thing different is that I used a different charge card. I received the credit -via text- on the new phone about two weeks after activation. I did not transfer the other number - I have two active accounts now.
I don't see the $70 promo on the VM site. Is it still going on?
