    Just tell them your issue. There isn't any need to make up anything, they will either help you out or they will replace it.

    I just want to say that I agree with Agent 13. If the phone is fairly new, it should still be under warranty. Also if you have a Service Contract, they should either fix it or replace it.
    If all else fails, and Virgin Mobile won't help, you could try contacting the Motorola customer service.

    VM will cover it for a year after purchase. So it's covered.

    yes. It doesn't matter where you bought it. It is covered for a year and the fact that the MT hasn't even been out a year means it really doesn't matter where you bought it...


    Good luck getting a new one... More than likely no matter what you do you are gonna get a refurb unless you want to send your phone to motorola for a week+ to fix it.

    sometimes they do sometimes they don't. It's the luck of the draw. I think a little while back they had a period where it seemed that everyone getting replacements where getting NIB ones. I think it really depends on their stock of refurbs.

    i always look at it as the phones issues(mostly hardware but some software) are well known to motorola and they arn't doing anything to fix it, so VM isnt going to shell out there own money to fix a prepaid product that isn't theres in the first place

    i just always hope for the best, lol, hopefully VM has seen the error in there ways from this phone and as far as ive seen they have no rumors of any new news of motorola phones coming out on there network

    So my bottom line is, atleast they are willing to help us out as much as they can by replacing our phones, even if they are refurb replacements, cause technically speaking the refurb should have what ever issue it was sent in for fixed........should lol
