    I'm wondering if it may be roaming. I doubt it, since everyone could just jump ship to pre-paid then but it seems like they could offer it for something like 50c-$1 per minute and people would be really happy just because it covers them for things like auto breakdowns. I wish they'd do that.

    Interesting idea... But why would Samsung be involved? I think it's got to be new hardware.

    If it is the SGSII then I will switch. But wasn't the community there not so great? Also how much do you think it would cost for the SGSII?

    350 - 450

    I had another thought. What if it's a Samsung tablet that runs on Virgin's 3G network? Nearly every major carrier has tablets that run on their networks, and maybe Virgin wants to compete in that space.

    Another thought: Windows Phone. What if Samsung is announcing a Windows Phone device for Virgin? That's pretty exciting considering that TMo is the only prepaid carrier with a Windows device, and a relatively low end one at that.

    The beauty of T-Mobile prepaid is you can use pretty much any T-Mobile phone. In fact, you can use any GSM phone, though if you want 3G it needs to support 1700Mhz.

    And all Windows phones currently are "low end", at least until they start releasing the Windows 8 phones.

    Tmo prepaid would be perfect if it was at least 200 mins

    It does for $40. :p ($10 extra for extra 100 min)

    Yes, people tend to forget that any extra minutes are merely charged at $.10/minute. While not a great price per minute, combined with a $30 plan it can work out well, if you just need an extra 100 minutes or so.

    In my case, I use Google Voice and GrooveIP to extend my minutes when I am connected to WiFi.

    Just read boost post saying they getting the epic touch. Makes me wonder. Hopefully new phone won't break bank. I got the evo and I'm fed up with it

    Long as I can keep my $25 plan and VM doesn't give me flack for using twice the cap limit each month, ill have no choice to keep the OV.

    but you sure could see me turning a Nexus or S3 into a WiFi cell with google voice. Looks cool to carry more then one, [keep the OV on the hip.] I need to get one for app dev soon. be nicer if it was a VM approved phone. when they will sulry force upgrades in a yr or two and I have to change phones.

    Unfortunately, any new VM news has mostly become irrelevant to me since they stopped allowing new phone models on the $25 plan, so I'm stuck with my Triumph for now. Once the Triumph becomes inadequate for my needs, I'll probably switch to the T-Mobile $30 plan.

    Maybe a cheap s2?

    Probably not lol but a Samsung reverb isn't exactly revolutionary :p

    If it's JUST a tablet, I don't see that as big news at all really. Although sure, it would be nice.

    Metro PCS is getting the Galaxy SIII in Sept, and Net 10 is getting the Galaxy SII, so I don't see why Virgin Mobile won't be getting one or the other.

    There were rumors of it being the Galaxy Reverb, but VM's Facebook said to someone "we are not getting that phone". Usually if they are getting a phone, they say "we don't have any info". So the Reverb is ruled out.

    My money is on the GS3 for VM, GS2 for Boost(since there was a recent sheet that showed a new GS2 with "BST" at the end of the model number)

    Very excited.

    Samsung is all over the place. They are adding a bunch of mid-range Android phones to various carriers. Even Tracfone is getting one.

    I can't see VM getting the S3, if for the simple reason that VM is not going to get an LTE phone. So my guess would be the S2, since it is a Wimax device.
