Well Virgin Mobile may not be getting the iPhone 5 at all. That is up to the CEO, but if Virgin Mobile is going to get it, it will most be 7 or 8 months after if being released. Just like with the iPhone 4S.

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).

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.

So far there is no info on newer iphones coming to VM. but when the new iphone does come out, it may or may not come to VM. But judging by them being okayed by apple to sell their phones, i think they will get the new iphone
either way. when it does come out there will probaly be a significant price drop in the current iphones

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.

What is Auto Pay??

answer 1
AutoPay is an automatic payment from your back account through your debit card. You will provide your Debit/Credit card number, it will remain on file, and each month a payment will be deducted from your bank account.

answer 2
As a Virgin Mobile iPhone customer, you can receive a $5/month discount on your Beyond Talk plan by enrolling in Auto Pay. To enroll in Auto Pay, you simply register a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account and sign up for automatic monthly payments. After the $5/month discount is applied, this would bring the $35/month Beyond Talk Plan to $30/month, the $45 Beyond Talk Plan to $40/month, and the $55/month Beyond Talk Plan to $50/month. You can enroll in Auto Pay at any time, but you will only receive a discount on your monthly plan if you are enrolled BEFORE making the plan payment.

Credit, debit or PayPal account.
