Should I get a Blackberry Curve 8530 (Virgin Mobile)?
I saw a really cheap plan of $45.00 per month (unlimited texting, web, and more) with the Virgin Mobile plan. I saw that they said that they offered the Blackberry Curve 8530...Is it a good phone?/ Is it worth the $185.00? I mean, if it is only $45.00 per month...I thought that was pretty good...
Its worth it
Is the blackberry curve 8530 for virgin mobile good?
I have a samsung galaxy vibrant right now for tmobile but i have to go prepaid now. So is the bb curve good? Also is it easy to get used to?
There are currently nine versions of the BlackBerry Curve 8530 for sale in the US. But the ones offered by Cricket, MetroPCS and Virgin Mobile demand special scrutiny. All three carriers sell this smartphone for a very low monthly rate, with no contract. Virgin's plans are a little more expensive than Metro's and Cricket's, but Virgin's network is both 3G (which Metro isn't) and available nationwide (which Cricket isn't). This is the only smartphone available for Virgin Mobile right now, and combined with the plans we think it's a very good buy.
Is there a way i can connect my sprint blackberry curve 8530 with virgin mobile prepaid service?
You will not be able to make your Blackberry 8530 work on Virgin Mobile's network. It does not matter if your Blackberry is GSM, CDMA or any other type of phone. It also will not matter whether your Blackberry was from the Sprint, AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile network.
The only phones that will work on Virgin Mobile are phones specifically made for, programmed and sold on (and for) the site / network ... Such as their Blackberry Curve 8530. There's is programmed with different Enterprise-Level firmware and they do this intentionally, and it is the only way for a low-cost, prepaid network to survive.
If you could use any phone (or any other network's phone), nobody would buy Virgin Mobile phones at all ... They'd buy used or unlocked phones elsewhere, then go sign up for Virgin Mobile, Boost or some other prepaid network.
This is also the reason why phones are often "free" or so inexpensive on one of the major networks - because they are relying on a minimum Two-Year Contract ... Which a prepaid company can not get from you.
You CAN unlock your Blackberry 8530 or get it unlocked and use it on a competing major provider. If it is a GSM phone, you can use it on AT&T or T-mobile. If it is a CDMA phone, you can use it on Verizon or Sprint.

It depends on where you live, but Virgin Mobile runs on the Sprint Network so it's pretty good for me. The messaging and net is fast, and I'm on the $35 plan which is perfect!
