From what I've been able to find from reputable sources it has a 1.4GHz quad core. See CNET http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19736_7-57589875-251/samsung-galaxy-ring-circles-up-with-virgin-mobile-for-$180/ . It would be nice if VM would start posting full specs for their phones when they get them so these questions don't keep coming up...

Hard to believe for the price this phone has a quad core processor. I have done some goggling and found that several sites say 1.4 single core processor. How are you supposed to know if the VM site has wrong information/stats?

answer 7
Overall, the general consensus says that it's a single core processor, but it could be a Snapdragon 200 quad core, which is a "low-end" quad core, and that would make sense, it's one of the budget friendly processors this year and this phone doesn't have 4G or LTE, and that 200 doesn't support LTE or 4G, just 3G. I'd wait until it's confirmed to get it though.

Received from Virgin Mobile Customer Care:

"We want to inform you that the 25/10 cents per minute plan has been retired. Since you are enrolled in this plan, you will be able to stay on this offer as long as you do not change to a different plan or upgrade to a new phone. Once you change plan, you will not be able to migrate back to the 25/10 cents per minute plan."

I lose the 25/10 plan since I am upgrading to a Samsung Galaxy Ring from a Kyocera.

as long as you have a 3g network plan, which the old $25 dollar plan is (I have it too), it should be fine. It's if you want to switch to a 4g network phone you have to switch plans I believe.

Does the Samsung Galaxy Ring and/or Virgin Mobile plans have/support 3-way calling?

► System Update: 3 Way Calling
   There's no additional charge to use the 3 Way Calling feature, however you'll be charged standard rates for both calls while you're connected to both calls.
   For example, if you're on the Pay As You Go plan, and you're talking to a friend, you're being charged 20¢/min for that call. If you make a second call without
   dropping the first call (to use the 3 Way Calling feature), you'll be charged 40¢/min since you're on two calls at the same time (20¢ per min, per call).
   If you're on the Monthly plan with a limited number of minutes, a minute will be used for each call for each minute of talk time.
   http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5756/

• Three-way calling is not supported on most Virgin Mobile and Assurance Wireless devices released prior to 2013. Three-way calling works on the
   following Virgin Mobile and Assurance Wireless devices:

   1- BlackBerry Curve 8530
   2- iPhone 4
   3- iPhone 4S
   4- Samsung Galaxy S II - Three-way calling will be enabled with a software update scheduled for Q1 2013
   5- Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE
   6- Kyocera Event
   7- Kyocera Brio(payLo and Assurance Wireless plans)

• System Update: 3-Way Calling Supported Phones

   The phones below will support 3-Way Calling:

Phone Date Available
iPhone (Virgin Mobile) Immediate
Samsung Galaxy SII (Virgin Mobile) 1Q13

If it doesn't have much memory and you can't save apps to a cd card, then you'll be in the streets in 9-12 weeks with "insufficient memory". Victory has twice the memory of Ring, but, true or false, neither saves apps to cd card. But I refuse to believe that so I'm still asking the question.

Sorry, no. Look for "Daily Mobile Hotspot" on the FEATURES & SPECS tab. Virgin Mobile occasionally changes their phones, devices and plans.

► You need the following to create a Mobile Hotspot via Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11):

1. One of the Beyond Talk plans ($35, $45, or $55 per month)
2. The $15 per month OR $5 per day Hotspot option in your Virgin Mobile account
3. One of these Beyond Talk phones:
(uses 3G network only) Apple iPhone 4s, Kyocera Event
(uses 4G LTE and 3G networks) HTC Desire, Kyocera Hydro Vibe, LG Optimus F3, LG Volt, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy SIII,
Samsung Galaxy Victory

Log into your account. [MANAGE MY ACCOUNT at the top of this page.] On the Account Overview tab click on 'Change My Plan'. From there you can
see the plans and options that are available for your phone.

Read the legal stuff for more information:

Yes. Currently a Mobile Hotspot can be created only with the HTC Evo V, Samsung Galaxy S II(3G or 4G WiMAX network), ►Samsung Galaxy Ring(3G network)◄, Apple iPhone 5 (3G or 4G LTE network), Samsung Galaxy S III(3G or 4G LTE network), both Apple iPhones 4 & 4S(3G network) using a Beyond Talk plan ($35, $45, or $55 per month) and the $15/month Hotspot option.
