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).

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.

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! :)

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.

Say you buy the iphone from virgin mobile and use it for a year but then as a student, I will be studying abroad...
for a couple of months. When returning to the states can that same iphone still be used with the virgin mobile plan?

Yes. Virgin will keep your old number for up to six months (if I remember correctly) after you stop paying your monthly plan. All you have to do is top up your account and restart your month, and you'll be back in business.

The only possible issue you may have is that, when you come back, Virgin may change their monthly plan rates. When you are an existing customer, you get to stay on your rate even if they increase the price (I currently have the $35 plan, but my rate is $25, since that was the price before they increased it last summer).

Since they recently increased the prices for the 'Beyond Talk' plans, it is unlikely that they'd do it anytime soon again.

So, YES, you can take your iPhone overseas, use it with their local micro-SIM, then come back and resume your old plan. If your number has expired (you failed to top-up for more than six months), you'll just register the phone again with VM and get a new number.

I know the iPhone iOS 5 lets you install updates now via the phone itself but if you want to sync music, apps, videos, etc I'd recommend downloading iTunes to your computer. You can download music directly on the phone via iTunes app BUT you can also sync it on your computer.

Nope, thats the nice thing about iOS 5, there is no need to download itunes to your computer, you can do all the setup process on your phone.
though in the future i would, it would back up everything to the computer and the icloud. with photostream, your pictures would be backed up on to your computer thru wifi.
