Does it have a Front Faceing Camera

answer 1
Nope. Maybe next time Virgin will release a phone with a front facing camera. That would be nice.

We can also hope that skype will release a video chat for Android soon too.

Question
Do any of your phines offer both CDMA and GSM ?
asked 3 years, 6 months ago

Answers
answer 1
Sprint has one Blackberry model that works within CDMA network but has a sim card slot so you can have both toghether. VM and Sprint are CDMA providers ( doesn't work outside the country except in few countries that have CDMA networks).T-mobile and ATT are GSM providers(GSM system works in the whole world) Mobile phone companies don't offer both systems toghether. Maybe in the future we will see more phones with combined networks or 2 sim card slots but for now we wait :)

Question
Message Notification
I've heard this phone doesn't give a notification when you get a message. You have to manually check, if you have it on silence. Is that why everybody is unhappy it has no notification light?

Answers
answer 1
I've had the phone for two months. There is no notification light but it will vibrate twice while in silent mode. The problem is with Android in that the notification icon that is supposed to be displayed at the top of the screen often clears on its own. If you don't feel the vibrate or have the phone off your belt you have to manually check all your accounts because you can't depend on the notification icon.

This phone will chime or ding when you get a text or an e-mail and vibrate. When it is in silent mode it will still vibrate. But, you are correct no notification light.

Yes!!!!
Just downloaded new netflix app for android!!! Streaming and sync are great on this device !!!!
Sound is a little glitchy at times, but still very watchable. You also need netflix membership for 7.99 a month.
Netflix for android is fairly new , so I'm sure there will be updates to make it run perfectly. As it is, it is still very good!!!

You need at least 1 MBPS to stream. Frequently, 3G is not that fast. I have seen WiFi up to 10.8 MBPS. Coffee shops are typically around 0.4 or 0.5 MBPS. There is an app to measure d/l speed. So, it depends on who you are connected to.

You can't watch Netflix on Android phones, not because of Flash, (Netflix works on Flash-free Apple devices) but because there is not an app from Netflix that allows streaming. Yet.
