    Hi All,
    I may start using Virgin Mobile soon but wanted to try to get an idea
    of their coverage in my area and if other customers are happy w/the
    service. I was looking into other prepaid (no contract) services and
    liked Virgin's pricing best. I'd only be using the phone for
    emergengies, maybe light casual use. I understand Virgin uses Sprints
    network. I live in the Greenwich, CT area and would also be using the
    phone in NYC. Thanks for any info.

    Dan-
    You are correct. Virgin uses Sprint PCS's native 1900MhZ network. As such,
    your coverage would be the exact same as a Sprint user on a Free and Clear
    plan. I have been to Greenwich and the phone worked ok. In NYC, I had
    major problems trying to make calls during rush hour. Constant circuit busy
    messages and dropped calls. This was a year ago though and I am sure things
    have improved.

    Regards,
    Cole

    I live in NYC and never have problems making calls. Well, that's not
    completely true, the other night about 11:00pm or midnight I was talking to
    someone and the call dropped. When I tried to call back it said circuits
    were busy, then I tried to call again right away and I got popped into my
    friends voice mail. He's also on Sprint and lives in NYC but where he lives
    he never really gets a good signal anyway, Starat City in Brooklyn. This is
    only one of the maybe handful on times I've had problems in the two years
    (exactly) I've been with them. I mean there's always the "signal loss or bad
    signal in certain locations" but that can't be avoided, even this there
    wasn't too many though.
