    Would this work with an old phone or do we have to buy a new phone from VM?

    Ya, I am conflicted to say the least! :hmmmm:
    It is my son who is on VM and has a 3G only phone (no Wimax here) If 4G LTE actually works well in our area then it may be worth getting him an SIII and keeping him with them. Long story short though, I get 4G LTE full blast about 4 blocks away and nothing in my immediate neighborhood, hopefully they are not finished and when completed we will also have full access to 4G? One reason I am conflicted and not sure which direction I should go.
    If Ting had better data rates and would split a few of tiers it would be a no brainer to bring him over. The wife and I really Like Ting for several reasons, mainly the ability to share minutes/text/data among several devices and their Minute and Text cost are cheaper than most. As far as data, I wish ATT or Verizon had a Ting type MVNO! Guess we will see when LTE is fully implemented. I have to say, over on the VM HoFo forum it seems most are really happy with the speeds of LTE. :dontknow:

    I have to ask though, if you are such a VM (Sprint) hater, why are you posting on this particular forum wall at all? Who do you work for?

    They will probably still throttle after 2.5GB anyhow, thus nullifying any benefit of the increased speeds.

    I was a Virgin Mobile customer a few months ago.
    I do not hate or even dislike VM, I was able to tether well over 60GB most months at 30KBps speeds.
    There are just better options for data hungry users like me now(T-Mobile).
