Re: Nice Phones on Virgin Mobile

Someone asked here why Virgin Mobile doesn't put nice phones in their lineup like they do overseas. Simple question, simple answer: overseas they run on a different network, have a different audience (overseas Virgin Mobile has contracts) and different pricing overall. Really, the whole wireless industry is different overseas. Here, people want generally cheap phones, so Virgin Mobile complies.

Now why they haven't already gotten halfway-decent phones like Virgin Mobile Canada has remains a mystery...Virgin Mobile Canada runs on the equivalent of Sprint in Canada...Bell Mobility (I'd call Rogers the equivalent of AT&T...oops...Cingular...oops...AT&T and Telus the equivalent of Verizon for whatever reason, even though their technology lineup...iDEN and CDMA...mimic's Sprint's configuration now) and gets many of their same phones. But let me end my rant while Virgin Mobile canada's site is still down for some reason...

in the United States shouldnt complain about their subsidized phones, seems to me even on prepaid they are somewhat subsidizing these handsets???

Turk...Oh Yeah =D... I was going to order some more but they stopped doing the 2126...they will up again I am sure...i kept one gave one away with a hundred minutes, the other one has three hundred something minutes and is good for a year.... I use Net 10 most of the time..but wanted the 2126 on Verizon as a back up... You know lightning strikes etc.... :P
