Good news if you've got old Sprint phones laying around.

Yep I wonder what the "certain specifications" are that the phone must meet before it can be brought over to Virgin Mobile. I really hope that high end devices like the GSIII, LTEVO, and Optimus G can qualify.

Sure it is. In the US anyway.

It's mentioned specifically by name in the article as one of the networks it will be affecting as well.

Yeah, I would assume so.

Probably devices at least six months to a year old would be my guess on top of that.

Actually, the article only mentions Virgin Mobile as a Sprint MVNO. While Spint will allow their old phones to be used, Virgin also needs to allow it and, to this point, they haven't.

If Virgin does end up allowing it, I expect that they will require Sprint phones to be about a year old before being allowed on the network.

Virgin Mobile is owned by Sprint, years ago this was not the case. Even after Sprint acquired Virgin Mobile they are are referred to as a MVNO in articles, but I do not know why.

They're still considered a MNVO because they're still separate from Sprint, even though Sprint owns it.

I doubt Sprint considers them a MNVO but I could be wrong. Either way they were referenced in the article but at the moment Virgin Mobile does not offer BYOD and made no hint they are going to anytime in the near future.

I'll follow up once I get a response from them.

They were not informed by Sprint? Sprint owns Virgin Mobile, I would have to assume they would be informed as soon if not before Sprint MVNOs if they were included.

Maybe they were told not to say anything yet. Maybe they haven't finalized specifications of this program. Who knows. It's all speculation at this point. I should have said "maybe they weren't informed" instead of saying it like it was a fact. It's purely speculation.

It's speculation if they are even included in the program. Just because the article included Virgin Mobile as a reference as a Sprint MVNO for some reason does not mean they are included in the program.

It also doesn't mean that they are not included.

Speculation is fine either way until something definitive is out.

Another news story about this BYOD thing:

My question is how would they allow other CDMA devices on their network? It's not as simple as a SIM card swap.

If you look at the three listed phone, you will see that they are all 4G LTE. Sprint would see more profit giving LTE to their bigger prepaid boost and virgin mobile, maybe voyager too.

As long as the device supports their bands AFAIK they just have to allow the device to communicate on their network, like MAC filtering on your home WiFi.

I work for sprint, but have used VM service for years. I recently got a "new-to-me" Epic 4g and wanted to flash it over to VM. 3 different ppl i spoke with at virgin mobile when trying to activate the device told me that they no longer accept flashed phones to activate. Sooooo, now i'm confused about being to bring my sprint phone over to virgin mobile?!?!?!?!

Virgin does not allow non-Virgin phones on their network. While some people try to "trick" the system by swapping the phone's ESN with a Virgin phone, this is against Virgin TOS and possibly illegal.

True, the operative word being "are changing". Until that happens, swapping ESNs by any method is still illegal and therefore discussion of doing so will probably result in a thread closure. Nobody wants that.

Actually, I think most have come to realize that the article was only saying that Sprint was allowing MVNOs to use older Sprint phones, not that the MVNOs have to allow it. It would seem, from the lack of any response by Virgin Mobile up to now, that they have no intention of changing their policy.

If it turns out its a no go ill just flash a phone to virgin or be lazy and obsessive n check the website for gs3 to come out. Idk maybe Ting would be better....

I wouldn't hold my breath for a byod program. I would get a GSM device for T-Mobile or just wait for the s3 to come out this month.
