    I'm switching from verizon to virgin to get unlimited everything and 300 mins monthly for $25. I thought I could just get one of those $80 used droids off ebay and connect it. I called virgin 3 times to get a clear answer on which phones could be used on their service-the 1st time i was blatantly lied too, the lady told me i MUST buy a brand new phone THROUGH virgin in order to utalize the $25 a month plan as if it were a catch to the bargain. I called back again, got a different person ,who told me it could be any phone as long as it's compatable, third call, I found out that it has to be a virgin phone new/used because virgin doesn't use sims cards. Anyway, so what's a good smart/net phone I could use with virgin hopefully used for under $80? I NEED the following features:

    -decent like 2MP or more photo and camcorder THAT CAN BE UPLOADED TO COMPUTER, not stuck in phone forever.

    -1G or more mp3 player, hopefully with standard 1/8 inch headphone jack so don't need adapter to use headhones

    -3 inch or so screen, not a small flip phone

    -prefer not a touch screen as i don't like anything that fragile on me always to worry about breaking

    -can run youtube

    -has a GPS like for driving directions unless this is an app for any phone

    I never had a smart/net phone, so please suggest anything else you think i might really want in the phone.
    thank you very much

    I hate to teli you but you need to purchase a Virgin branded phone they will not activate anything else, don't waste your money on anything less than the samsung android phone I think there on sale at Radio Shack fo $200
    Phones in use - HTC Droid Incredible 2 (Verizon) ~ LG Optimus V ANDROID (Virgin Mobile) - 300 Min. Unlimited DATA - Text - Email - Web - $25 Mo. -COOL!!!!!

    nevermind. thanks anyway.
    suprisingly, the 4 ones suggested/listed on virgin's webiste are basically all i could find used on ebay with the features i want. i originally thought these were the latest phones and i could find something older with slighly less features for a much lower price used. Just to clarify, the phone must have a virgin emblem on it for the $25 beyond talk unlimited everything 300 talk mins plan. however lg101 phone won't work but it's a very basic phone.
