    Anyone here use them (besides Annsi :))?

    I'm thinking of switching from Verizon post-paid to Virgin pre-paid. $25 month for unlimited web, text and email with 300 minutes seems VERY attractive compared to the 750 shared minutes, 200 texts and NO web for 80 a month I'm paying now. They are on the Sprint network.

    I'm thinking the kyocera loft for a phone...I'm not a techie and talk maybe 100 minutes tops each month with 50 texts tops. I'm sure I will be using the email and web more than talking.

    Thoughts?

    My wife does & she is fine with it but Sprint has more dead spots than Verison...at least by me. Tell me how that is for me if you do it as my verizon contract is up in March. Thanks

    See, around here, we can't do Verizon - at least at my home. I get great service with Virgin Mobile and hubby gets great service with Boost. We used to do fine with AT&T but with Verizon, your phone will just go dead at my house.

    Nope - Western Suffolk. :) Now my in-laws, they are WAY out there in Greenport. LOL

    But no, the north shore of this town (Huntington Township) is notorious for not working with Verizon. No one who has a boat uses Verizon or else they do what we originally did - get a disposable phone with Virgin Mobile for the summer and use that on the boat. I mean it's not even like you get a bar - you get nothing!! It's so weird! Oh - and the Verizon "coverage map" is a lie. :)
