Question
Does the Virgin iPhone have a sim card
asked 2 years, 1 month ago
by

answer 1
Yes, it does. iPhones come in two flavours: GSM only and CDMA=GSM hybrids. CDMA-GSM hybrids (usually called CDMA iPhones) work on Verizon Sprint and now Virgin. All of them have a micro-SIM card slot. Verizon and Sprint even provide a micro-SIM card in that slot, even though this card is essentially useless while in USA. When you travel overseas, the phone will roam on GSM networks and for that, it will use the micro-SIM card. Sprint and Verizon have international roaming plans for this purpose. Virgin does not.

From what could gather, Virgin iPhone4 / 4S will allow you to use a foreign micro-SIM card in your phone while traveling overseas, since they don't have any roaming agreements with foreign carriers.

the iPhone 4/4S DOES have a sim card slot. People who are telling you "no" are probably thinking of the Verizon iPhone 4/4S, which does not have a sim card slot.

Yes it also has a SIM card slot. ALL iPhone 4s's do. Virgins site even says you can install a SIM card when traveling overseas in a GSM area.

Can the iPhone be used with a sim card internationally ?

answer 1
According to Virgin, yes. Every iPhone (even CDMA models, like those on Verizon, Sprint and Virgin) have a micro-SIM card slot. Virgin does NOT have international roaming plans, though, so you'll likely only be able to roam internationally if you buy a foreign carrier micro-SIM card in the country you're visiting.

answer 1
Actually, YES, there is a micro-SIM card slot. When the phone is used in the US, this slot (and the micro-SIM inside) is useless. When roaming overseas, the phone uses the GSM networking (and the micro-SIM) to connect to foreign networks.

Since VM doesn't use SIM cards a slot for that won't be placed.

Question
What is the difference with this plan versus AT&T or Sprint?
For example, will this phone have internet like the other plans, same speed, etc. Is there anything Virgin Mobile customers might be disappointed with as compared to the other plans?

answer 1
The only significant differences are in monthly rates ($35-45-55 on VM, $60 and up on AT&T or Sprint), and the lack of 4G. The monthly plan difference is significant, since VM's plans have unlimited data and text (which for many users are fairly essential), and on other carriers, they are essentially add-on services. As for 4G, outside of a fairly small metropolitan areas, it is still not accessible from vast swaths of the US. Sprint's 3G service is fairly decent (up to 1.8Mbps in some places), and has a fairly large coverate.

My subjective assessment is that the VM offering is much better, all things considered, than others.

Virgin Mobile runs on Sprint's towers so if you get good service with Sprint in your area, then you'll get good service with Virgin Mobile. The biggest difference is that you pay more up front and less in the long run.

Will my older Mac with OS X Ver. 10.4.11 suppoert this iPhone for iTunes Syncing and such?

You will need is the most recent version of iTunes, which requires Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). What you have is Tiger, and, according to iTunes system requirements, it probably won't work. If your hardware is sufficient to run iTunes (min G4 at 800MHz, etc), you should upgrade to at least 10.5 (Leopard), and preferably 10.6 (Snow Leopard). These can be had fairly cheap, and bring along some great features that Tiger doesn't have.

Actually, YES, there is a micro-SIM card (on the right side of the phone; check the pictures above; there is a small pin-hole for ejection pin).

There are NO international roaming plans with Virgin, though, so you'll likely need a local micro-SIM card wherever you travel.

I don't believe so. You need a SIM card for use in Europe and this phone doesn't have one with Virgin.
