  • Great Beginner Phone

    I bought this son for my 11 year old son. He really loves it! He uses it to make calls, text, and play games. He also loves the size because it fits in his pocket. The only problem I had was the activation process. When I tried to activate the phone through simply activate I could not get the phone activated. I decided to go through virgin mobile and activate the phone first, then go to simply activate and the $120 promotion was added to the phone. I won't have a bill for 3 months so that makes this phone a great value!

  • Nice phone

    Love the phone, the price and service. Caveat, it was not easy transferring from Old carrier to Virgin Mobile. Old service provider gave inaccurate instructions on the process. Finally, Smart Switch on this phone, download of Smart Switch on old phone; followed instructions from new phone. Asked for PIN on old phone but couldn't get a PIN until a failed attempt to transfer, the old phone gave a PIN number. I'm not to savvy when it comes to this kind of stuff. Better instructions would have been nice and would have made this transition much more uncomplicated.After all transferring complete...LOVE this phone!Lots of cool features that were not on my Galaxy Note 3. Going from paying $100 a month to $35 a month with the same and some better features...well worth it for me!

  • Phone Is Great...But...

    The phone is great, no issues. Easy to use. However, getting set up with Virgin Mobile required several calls and several hours on the phone. It was nearly impossible to understand any of the reps because of such heavy accents. The last time I was able to speak to a person I could understand. He was very good, helpful and polite. But if I had it to do over I would not have used Virgin Mobile.

  • Nice phone...but some problems getting going!

    This is a nIce phone. I stepped down from the Galaxy 7 and find this one more user friendly and less apt to be "too smart", if you know what I mean. My real problem started with the activation process. Because I wanted to port my own number from my previous carrier, it took many, many tries and almost 2 days before I had service again. Also, I experienced extreme difficulty getting the $120 Service Credit loaded onto my phone. Virgin Mobile was useless. But HSN Care finally solved my problem after six days.Also, my phone uses my wireless in my home and on the job, the Virgin Mobile coverage 4G Lite is slow to connect and I always get a "low signal" message when I try to make a call on the Bluetooth. I will need to use this phone a little longer to give a verdict on the Virgin Mobile service.
