Default How Is Virgin Mobile Service In NYC?

I keep seeing subway ads for $25 / month unlimited text / data service and I am curious.

Thanks.

I had T-mobile before and just switched to virgin mobile a week ago. So far I think Virgin mobile works better than T-mobile.

That was my first cellphone 8 years ago because it was cheap, I used to buy two 30 dollar prepaid cards a month totalling 60 bucks expensive now it seems. Back then I liked the service and I met alot of women through its text service called upoc. NOw all I know that Virgin mobile runs off the sprint network which is not bad but pretty good because sprint is fast and snappy and rarely any drop calls. At least it doesnt runs off ATAT iphone strapped congested network especially since 1 in 4 new yorkers own iphones. My best bet is to go to a paid service like sprint which you can get unlimited internet text, data, media all for 70 bucks or even the cheaper tmobile. THe reason why there is alot of advertisement for virgin mobile along with boost mobile is that both prepaid sprint service are competing heavily against metropcs, according to my investor metropcs stocks keep on rising and many cash strapped people in this economy are jumping over to metropcs service. Sprint is not looking good finincially, a company which im proud to pay my service for and I love 4g service in Mott Haven.
