    So it's 2013! and VirginMobileUSA decided that the newest phone all VirginMobile users should buy/upgrade(downgrade for most users) is the new Kyocera Event. SMH

    It's a nice decent phone but come on Virgin!

    Could be a decent phone for new customers if they want a cheap low end Android phone. Though I do agree, not very exciting for a lot current customers I would guess.

    It has the same processor and screen as the Elite. It's basically an Elite with ICS and without NFC.

    It looks like a nice little device.

    At least the prepaid/no contracts have a nice selection of devices to choose from these days. Even the Galaxy SIII and iPhone can be had without a contract.

    I remember not too long ago, if you wanted prepaid or no contract, your selection sucked.

    I was excited when Cricket offered us the Zio. A really nice phone.
