"Same exact battery as Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc...."3.0 starson by harleyy2
Pros: 3G (At least)
Cons: Battery life is a total joke
Software is just hard to navigate
Web browser sucks - on any carrier it sucks
Summary: It's the same exact blackberry as the contract carriers have however the monthly plan is definitely a lot cheaper. The 3G from Virgin Mobile (Sprint) works fine..3G is 3G...DSL speed. Battery life - 3-5 hours is a total joke but again that happens with any carrier...it's not Virgin Mobile's fault. The rate I did pay was $35/month for 300 mins and unlimited texting/data which is cheap and perfect for what I needed to use. I only tested that for a month and wouldn't buy ANY blackberry because web browsing is a total joke. Switch to Android and enjoy it a LOT!
