How is iPhone on Virgin Mobile? Is the service good? Anyone with a review?
This is obviously abit unfair but I was with Virgin Mobile when I got an HTC HD2 and the speeds weren't exactly blazing fast
I assume this is the UK though?
My niece purchased an iPhone 4S - sim free and unlocked to all networks.
Inserted her Virgin Mobile sim (a rolling 1 month deal) to find that 3G did not work - no Internet browsing whatsoever.
Phoned virgin who sent her a text with the settings required. Installed those and still got nothing.
The next day it suddenly starting working by itself. A day later it stopped again.
This time I rang Virgin on her behalf and they told me that they do not support the iPhone. The customer service rep actually said that he used an iPhone himself with no issues, but couldn't give me any more advice since Virgin do not support them!
After some arguing I managed to get him to go through his personal phone so that I could replicate the settings. Dd this, but still no reliable 3G.
In the end she disconnected and went with another provider, where her iPhone worked fine straight away.
I'd assume that "NY" in the OP's profile is New York, so they're not likely to be talking about Virgin Mobile UK.
What? Virgin mobile most definitely supports the iPhone.
Did you read the post or only the topic?
It's location, location, location. VM may have fantastic speeds in my area but total crap in your area. Or, vice versa. You need to talk to people in your area to see how it works for them.
Radio Shack and Best Buy carry the VM version of the iPhone 4/4s. Go to a local store and try one out there.
It was in response to the poster who spoke to a rep that said VM didn't support VM.
I think people need to mention their LOCATION! and others need to ask as it helps unless of course mentioned in the profile/under users name on thread/post:
USA: CDMA/EVDO/LTE via Sprint
Canada: HSPA+/LTE band 4 via Bell Network (Shared with Telus)
Australia: GSM?/HSDPA/HSPA+ network
UK/Europe where ever it is, its definitely GSM?/HSDPA/HSPA+ for sure.
Absolutely! Bearing in mind the variances of coverage by Internet Providers, the absence of a location renders both the question and answer totally meaningless.
Well, they don't!
That's because they were talking about Virgin Mobile UK, not Virgin Mobile USA.
I agree with that. It would be nice if people could be reminded when posting that they should state where they are from. Often people leave you to not only work out which country they're from, but their carrier too!
Virgin Mobile USA uses Sprint's network meaning you will have horrible 3G data speeds and no access to LTE where Sprint has it.
