Virgin Mobile has always been a great value, delivering acceptable phones and service at a far lower total cost of ownership than the big contract carriers. Low cost coupled with much more flexible terms, from being contract-free, makes these carriers worthy of consideration for all cell phone consumers.

The downside to Virgin Mobile, is that the phones that they offer are always about a year behind the current, cutting edge offerings. This remains true, however being a year behind is mattering less and less now that smart phone technology is reaching a plateau. I'm not saying that the iPhone 5 is not better than the iPhone 4S, that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is not better than the Samsung Galaxy S2, or that 2012 HTC Evo 4G is not better than the 2010 version of the same phone. What I'm saying is that the improvements are far more nuanced now, in 2012, than they were in 2010 or earlier. Getting a phone with last year's technology is not as big of a deal now as it once was, especially when you look at the cost difference.

This phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 4G is obviously not the newest version of this phone available. If you want the very newest and best, you won't get that on Virgin Mobile or any other budget priced contract free carrier. It is however very adequate, and by far the best phone ever offered for this low of a total cost of ownership.

I have had six different Android phones on Virgin Mobile, including the HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Triumph, Optimus, etcetera. I bought this phone in November 2012 at Radio Shack, the day that it became available. I still have an HTC Evo 4G in our family, but personally have been using this phone for over a month now, quite heavily.

This Samsung Galaxy S2 4G runs Android 4.

Boost Mobile has replaced the Galaxy S II, using the obsolete Wi-Max network, with the more advanced Samsung Galaxy S3, running on Sprint's new high speed 4g LTE network. There is NO reason to buy the Galaxy S II unless you can buy the it for a sensationally low price...say, about $199. The more expensive Galaxy S3, with MUCH faster data speeds, provides better value for your money.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is a great phone. If rated by the superb quality of its large screen, the solid quality of phone calls, and its superior ability to handle basic functions such as texting, email, photos, videos, and music, the S2 is equal or superior to the Apple Iphone 5 and most other premium quality phones. For details on why the S2 is such a great phone, read some of the many "Five Star" Reviews.

So, why do I rate the Samsung S2 as only a "Two Star" phone? Because it is priced as being a 4g phone, but the Sprint/Virgin Wi-Max network can deliver TRUE 4g speeds indoors to only about 10% of American homes. Second, instead of expanding the Wi-Max network, Sprint/Virgin has decided to replace the Wi-Max network with a 4g LTE network and shut down the Wi-Max network.

The closing of the Wi-Max network has begun. Within three years, the Wi-Max network is likely to be totally shut down. A Wi-Max phone, such as the S2, can NOT connect to Sprint/Virgins's new 4g LTE network. In cities with a 4g LTE network, the S2 will be limited to the Sprint/Virgin BASIC network, which is the slowest network in America...with very slow download speeds similar to the snail slow dial-up internet speeds of 1995.

How bad is the Wi-Max network? Go to the Virgin Mobile website and study the Wi-Max coverage maps. ZERO coverage in the majority of states.

This replaced my LG Optimus & what an upgrade! The android version I went from was 2.0 to 4.0. The white is beautiful and the size is awesome without being too heavy. All apps load quickly & many can run at same time. Would recommend for anyone who wants to use as phone, mp3 player, mini-computer. It does it all. I listen to music at work. I keep it plugged in to power so it doesn't drain battery & use ear plugs so I can have it as loud as I'd like it without disturbing anyone in my office area. Love it very much!

Phone had the latest release by Samsung (for this phone) of android OS 4.1.2 update on it already, a nice plus. I like everything about this phone so far. I was looking for a Virgin Mobile phone with more storage, at least 8 MP camera, and faster processor, as well as good/great reviews and good price point. Battery life could be a bit better, but with some tweaking of settings, including notifications, widgets, screen brightness/timeout, etc, it has improved. I get about 12 hours with light use and about 10 hours with medium use. Someone mentioned that the phone has shut down out of the blue and needing to remove and replace the battery. This happened once with mine so far. I believe I was closing out of an app when it happened. Battery was still charged. I installed Wake Lock from Google Play (I have used this on an android tablet before) and have not had this happen again so far. I set it on "partial wake lock."
