Robin, 22 Mar 2014Can i use this virgin iphone internationally ???
Plz reply READ.
CDMA = no SIM card = GSM won't work.
Anomynous, 22 Mar 2014Its good that you knew but if you are already on Virgin then why you think this is so great? y... moreYou're assuming that because I know, I must already be a Virgin Mobile subscriber.
Saurav Ghosh, 22 Mar 2014Lol, in my country that means ₹ 23500, whereas current price of 16 GB versions are s... moreI doubt a locked device would cost you 39,000. You probably just doesnt understand how cellphone business work in the US.
This is a subsidized price.
By the way, i have experience with virtual carriers like Virgin, dont expect to be able to use your Sprint contract just because Virgin uses Sprints cellular network, the lock will be to Virgin only. Im mentioning it because i know of cases (not CDMA network though) where people thought the virtual carrier device would work with a mother network SIM, and it does not. The virtual carrier is a customer of the mother network, they are not partners in any way.
In some cases its different, like for example PLDT's wireless carrier in Philippines called Smart Communications, they made their own virtual carriers within their own company (Talk'n'Text [aka TNT] and RED Mobile). These were simply to differentiate offerings targeted at different user categories, where TNT was for the simplest users looking for cheap usage, very popular among teens, and RED was only for people with 3G devices (quite rare at the time, RED has since been discontinued). Anyway, would a TNT sim work in a phone locked to Smart? Nope. Virtual carriers are virtual no matter if they have the same owner.
MisterCats, 22 Mar 2014"Telling you everything you already know in a very condescending manner" oIts good that you knew but if you are already on Virgin then why you think this is so great? you could probably get an iPhone 6 for less than $199 when you renew your contract.
Lol, in my country that means ₹ 23500, whereas current price of 16 GB versions are somewhere around ₹ 39000 I guess.
Who cares anyway! But should be a good news for their fans.
It's still subsidised though, because it's locked to Virgin Mobile. And attracts another fee to get it unlocked. The whole point here is that Virgin Mobile will be guaranteed extra revenue by either the user using their service, or paying the unlock fee.
Subsidised locked phones for prepaid markets have been available in other countries for 10+ years. This is once again, nothing new. Other than it's not happening for iPhones, when traditionally iPhones never sold like this.
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2014If you're invested in Google's ecosystem, then I wouldn't recommend it. Apple's ecosystem is superior to Google's.
This iPhone is locked to Virgin Mobil so for anyone looking for unlocked.. this is not the right choice...
This phone is CDMA and will not work with GSM networks(unless you like 2g connection)
MisterCats, 21 Mar 2014...what?
This is almost too good to be true. I'm an Android user, but I've been pondering a... moreDont do it. it is like going backwards in time. after android, only windows phone can be considered an upgrade.
ps. as far as the hardware goes, iphones deliver excellent quality. as far as software goes... it looks and feels like my 5 year old kid made it.
anybody knows if it will work with the gsm chip overseas? I'm planning to take a long vacations, so i want to now if i can use it outside US on gsm network from another carrier.
Don't get me wrong, i now this is not a unlocked phone, but other carrier locked phones sometimes work outside us without unlock.
I am fully aware that a position like this is time to put together and also research. I just wanted to let you know that your efforts are appreciated. Keep up the good work and I hope others will follow your example and after such useful information and free for all of us to use.vectores gratis

If you learn how to use iTunes, which is pretty simple, you'll love the way iOS manages your music, photos, and other media.
*Android is also very reliable and stable. Please don't take that wrong.
