No iPhone of today has 4G. Not Verizon, not AT&T, not Sprint, and not Virgin Mobile. All of them use 3G networks.

Don't buy into carriers' advertising schtick. No carrier in America actually offers 4G service; they call it 4G, but it really is NOT. The HSDPA / UMTS networks provide marginally faster service than the best 3G, and it really isn't worth it at all (very poor coverage, heavy battery drain).

answer 2
There is no roaming on Virgin Mobile at all. If you are out of the Sprint coverage area, you will not get service. Rumors said there would be after a rep posted on Facebook, but that statement was redacted. This is one of the biggest hold-backs for Virgin, but I've only ever been without coverage in the boonies of Iowa, so if you have good coverage with Sprint or your current VM phone, you'll be fine.

No thats is the ONLY pitfall with no contract, you can't roam. BUT since they use the Sprint network they have really good coverage so def check your area.

Question
Will the Iphone be on the 4g network?
I find it strange that the most expensive phone isn't on the 4g network. you're paying the 4g price even though they're taking off 5$ with the auto pay feature.

I have seen this question a few times and have heard quite a few people saying that if you buy the Virgin Mobile iPhone at Best Buy you can pay for it over a period of 18 months. This way you don't have to pay it all at once. Hope this helps! :)

No trade-ins. You can swap to a new phone anytime you want, but you have to pay full price for the new phone.

Question
Does this phone have a place to put the sim card?

Actually, the iPhone 4S (NOT THE iPhone 4) DOES have a sim card slot. They just are not necessary in the states because VM disables GSM features in the US. However, it is useful when you travel abroad. You can use the preloaded sim card in the sim card slot on it's right side (most people usually don't notice this slot, but it's there, trust me) or use a sim card of your own.

P.S. If you wanna see it for yourself, go back to the homepage, and the announcement about the VM iPhone 4S shows 3 side-by-side iPhones. The last picture should show a small sim card slot on it's side (a tiny dot). It's right there.

It looks identical to all other iPhones. The only difference is that it says Virgin at the top, just like with Sprint, AT & T or Verizon.
