No. See the Apple iPhones, HTC Evo V, Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Triumph, and the Samsung Galaxy Reverb for phones with front-facing cameras.

No all you need to do once you buy it is go into the app store select "my apps" and slide over to "all" and then it will have all the app's you ever installed using you're goggle account. You won't have to rebuy anything, and it also saves all the contacts you've had saved to your Google account.

No, if you use the same Google Account on this phone, you won't have to repurchase apps.

You shouldn't have to. Purchases in the app market are registered to your google account. So as long as you sign in with the account you used on your previous phone, you shoudn't have to re buy apps.

VM does not charge a fee to swap to a new phone, however, i believe that any new smartphone purchased after may 27, 2012 (with the exception of the older ones such as the optimus V and the venture) will be subject to current rate plans, so if you have the old $25/mo for 300 mins/unlimited data & text plan, it will automatically update you to the current rate for the same plan which is $35/mo. from what im understanding, the grandfathered rate plan will NOT apply to the newly released smartphones. but aside from the change in the monthly rate plan, there is no fee other than the cost of the new phone.

There is no fee when you switch phones from one Virgin Mobile phone ti the other. If you are switching from another carrier, there are charges.

Question
Are the buttons on the bottom real buttons or touch screen type-ish ?

answer 1
They are capacitive touch buttons rather than physical ones. They are very responsive as is the touch screen. The only disadvantage of this is that the power button becomes the only way to wake the phone. It's not a problem, but takes some getting used to coming from a phone with physical buttons.

Swype is never the only way. All Androids come with the Stock Android Keyboard. Which is a regular push to select qwerty keyboard. There are many more customization keyboard apps available on the Google Play Store.

You can download free keyboard apps from the Android Market such as Go Keyboard.

Question
Does this phone have 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 $0.10/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 $0.20/min since you're on two calls at the same time ($0.10 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/

• 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

http://virginmobileusa.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5754
Note that you will need a Beyond Talk plan ($35, $45, or $55 per month) to use any of the above phones.
See the Beyond Talk plans and phones at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/cell-phone-plans/beyond-talk-plans/overview/#overview

• 3 Way Calling is not supported on any other Virgin Mobile, payLo, or Beyond Talk phones at this time.
