    That would be pretty sweet if you could use smart phones.

    yea, thats what I was thinking. ATT lets me use an inspire 4G prepaid without any data, yet verizon wont let me use a smartphone WITH data?

    Guess how much coverage TracPhones get where I live. None. Verizon and At&t are the only two providers that give service that I can use inside my own home. For sprint you have to walk to the end of my driveway.

    When I had a tracphone I got pretty good service. With virgin mobile most of the time I have to walk outside my house to hear people clearly. But I really value my smart phone. If only I could get better talking service... 35$ a month
  7. Doing fine with Virgin Mobil.

    Might be something wrong with your device. Tracphones work on any US carrier although you'll only get 3G on the network its really designed for (some are GSM, some are CDMA). I don't know of a single Tracphone with a Sprint 3G chip.

    But does it have unlimited data and text and is it a smartphone?

    these arent smartphones either.
    But yea, the texting and data is nice.
  11. Im currently on virgin mobiles prepaid beyond talk plan for 35 a month with 300 minutes and unlimited everyone else. my service is fine around here and I don't use all of my minutes as it is and my phone is alot nicer than the ones verizon is listing here so I have no need to switch yet. at&t just had a limited time offer for unlimited everything prepaid for 40 a month. phones sucked tho
