Optimus Elite is not eligible for $25 Grandfathered plan because it was released after May 1st, 2012. The only two exceptions to this is: 1) you purchased and swapped the Optimus Elite before May 27th, or 2) you purchased the Optimus Elite and switched to $25 plan using the loop hole a few months ago. It is possible that these rules do not apply 100% as some people above have mentioned. But if I were a grandfathered plan holder, I wouldn't risk loosing the privilege.
Don't forget 10% cashback (5% for Q4 + 5% through ShopDiscover) if you have a Discover card. There are two colors: Black and White (limit 5 each per customer).

Also just FYI the reason I droped them was all my calls were getting blocked in our new apartment (there was some message whenever I tried to use the phone, something that I need to move away from the area). I googled it and I think someone might have had Sprint booster nearby. Anyways, I called VM about this problem and they literally said "well, you're on pay-as-you-go plan, soooo...". They did nothing and just didn't care a single bit. Fortunately, at that same time I got a cell from work, so never had to deal with them again.

|clbeav||Anyone know if this can be activated on the PagePlus Network (They use VZW Prepaid Network).|

|msg125||How is the coverage with virgin? Is it the postpaid sprint network? This map cannot be right.|

Well, it's not true. There is limited number of phones (such as Optimus, Triumph etc. old ones) that vm lets you keep the $25 plan. You will lose your $25 If you replace your $25 phone to newer phones (like HTC One, Apple iPhone etc).

|MariaS9858||For anyone wondering about keeping their $25 plan. If that is what you are paying now. Yes you will be able to keep that as long as you just swap. If you are opening a new account with a new number you will be getting the $35 plan. I have swapped phones several times since the price went up. That is the price you pay until Virgin Mobile decides to raise the prices for us too.|

|MariaS9858||As long as you already have a phone on the $25 plan you are grandfathered at that price. If all you are doing is swapping your phone and keeping the same number. I have swapped phoned several times and is still paying the same. Now if you are opening a new account with a new number you will get the $35 plan.|

|Shogelash||I also kept the $25 plan when radio shack activated my elite in october. Has anyone been forced to $35 plan with elite activation?|
