Questions & Answers for Virgin Mobile Awe

Question
Why doesn't the "Compare" feature of the site say there is no expandable memory?
When I compare this phone to others on the site, phones such as the Reef say "Expandable Memory up to 32GB (Not Included)" under Memory, but for the Awe it only says "1 GB RAM / 4 GB ROM". Can someone confirm that it definitely has expandable memory/SD card slot?

No.

Virgin Mobile USA phones without 4G LTE don't use SIM cards.

► Virgin Mobile USA phones don't contain SIM cards because Virgin Mobile USA phones use the CDMA method for cellular communication. Most phones within the USA use the CDMA method. Phones outside the USA use the GSM method of communication. Phones that use GSM contain SIM cards.

► Virgin Mobile USA phones work strictly within the USA.

Virgin Mobile USA phones use the Sprint Nationwide Network which extends ONLY throughout the 48 U.S contiguous states, Hawaii, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. The Virgin Mobile USA phones do not roam across other phone networks either. For these reasons the Virgin Mobile USA phones work strictly within the USA and when located outside the USA, will not send/receive calls or messages nor provide web access. There are no options available to use Virgin Mobile USA phones outside the USA.

My "loud" may not be loud at all to you. Can't answer this question online. This question is best answered by calling Virgin Mobile Support. Click 'Support' at the top of this page and ask Virgin Mobile's Customer Care via phone or email. You can also click LIVE CHAT on the left side of this web page, if available.

I've owned this phone for a week now, and have not been able to figure it out! Some people have said to press the power button and the volume button, I have tried this and a combination of all the buttons and nothing works for me. If someone does know how, I wish they would post the exact directions, because it does not work on my phone.
