yes it does have a hole/slot for a cell charm, which is the same hole/slot used for a lanyard (cord to hang device around your neck.)

See the vendors web site for a 3-D image and you can view where the hole is.

Sorry, the Samsung M575 will only work with the payLo plans. If you already have the Samsung M575 then the closest payLo plan is the Unlimited Talk and Text plan which costs $40/month. You'll get UNLIMITED domestic calls, UNLIMITED domestic messages (text, picture, IM and email), and 50MB of web access every month.

The $35/month Beyond Talk plan will only work with one of the Beyond Talk phones at: http://www.virginmobileusa.com/shop/cell-phones/beyond-talk/

Can you only listen to MP3 through headphones or is there built in speaker? Quality of sound?

Yes, you can listen through the speakerphone, but as is typical of tiny speakers on almost all mobile phones, the sound quality is very marginal. So if you're not picky about sound for your music, it can be done. But I personally would never do it.

answer 2
You may be able to listen through the speakerphone but quality will be poor. Headphones will probably be better. See the owner's manual for details:

Generally, you will need a payLo phone from Virgin Mobile USA for a payLo plan. And you will need a Beyond Talk phone from Virgin Mobile USA for a Beyond Talk plan. Phones from other carriers will not work with any Beyond Talk or payLo plan.

Only 2 models can use any current Beyond Talk or payLo plan; the Kyocera S2300 and the LG Rumor2*.

Question
Does virgin mobile have 3 way
Can I talk to 2 people at the same time
asked 2 years, 5 months ago

answer 1
► 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.
