The More I Watch This Virgin Mobile Ad Luring T-Mobile Customers Away With $100, The More It Makes Sense And That Scares Me

Raul Julia. That's what this Virgin Mobile ad makes me think of. I'll explain that later. First, the facts. If you're a T-Mobile customer, Virgin Mobile wants your business. So much so that it's willing to give you a $100 credit if you port your number over before May 31st. Straightforward, right? Cool. Now, here: Have an octopus.

ZTE Launches The Blade III With Virgin Media In The UK For £79.99 PAYG Or £18 On Contract

The ZTE Blade III has been available outside of the UK since September of last year, but it's only just making its official appearance on British shores now, as a Virgin Media exclusive, for now at least.

Samsung Galaxy Reverb Coming To Virgin Mobile For $249, Pre-Orders Start Now

Pay-as-you-go service is getting more and more appealing with each passing day, and Virgin Mobile just announced the Samsung Galaxy Reverb - an Android 4.0 handset that should offer a decent amount of bang for the buck.

Specs:

  • 4" display
  • 1.4GHz single-core processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter
  • 122.40mm x 64.20mm x 11.40mm, 128.7g
  • Android 4.0

While those specs are mediocre compared to the flagship phones of today, it's hard to deny the allure of a device that goes for $249 without contract on a carrier that offers equally as affordable plans.

Sprint Will Sell The Kyocera Rise For $20 After Rebate With Contract On August 19th, Tries Selling A Budget Smartphone Without The Rope

Sprint has finally announced what we'd heard almost a month ago. The Kyocera Rise, the budget smartphone best known for making my movie references easy, is heading to the Now Network on August 19th. The device will cost $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. So if you want the internal specs of the original Evo in a QWERTY slider from the company that you probably didn't know also makes cutlery, it will run you $70 out the door.

Kyocera Rise Is Rumored To Be Heading To Sprint And Virgin Mobile, Has Nothing To Do With Batman

If you're not in the market for an über cheap, probably contract free phone, feel free to move along. Assuming you didn't already when you saw the name 'Kyocera'. Still here? Good.

A few months back, HTC let slip that the lowest-end member of its One family, the One V, would hit "a variety of US partners" come summer. It looks like that rollout is already firing up, as Virgin Mobile USA today announced that it's now selling the prepaid handset for $199.99.

As with all other members of the One series, Virgin Mobile's One V will come with Beats audio and Sense 4 on top of ICS, for better or for worse.

Details About The Upcoming LG Optimus Elite Leak - It's The Lowest Of The Low End... But Has NFC

Images and details about the upcoming LG Optimus Elite for Sprint and its prepaid subsidiary Virgin Mobile have made their way to the internet, and the only thing I can say about it is this is one confused device, and it couldn't be further from 'elite'.

While this device may not look half bad, under the hood it's the most underwhelming thing that we've seen in many months - save for one unexpected feature on a device like this.
