Just got a free Android phone from Virgin Mobile :50smile:
 

 
Last week I ordered a LG Optimus V off Ebay for $84.99 (

 Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V Good ESN Great Shape w/ 2GB SD Card | eBay) received it yesterday. Befor I activated it and bought service I decided to root it and install a custom ROM on it first. Well, after that I registered my phone, got my phone number and put $35 on my account to pay for my first month of service, then I had to activate my phone so I had to dial ##847446# on my phone and the activation options were suppose to pop up, well, since I deleted the stock ROM and installed a custom ROM whenever I typed ##847446# to activate my phone nothing happened image

I didn't know what was going on at first because my phone had a clean ESN and I even registered it on the Virgin Mobile site AND put money on my account. So I called up VirginMobile and walked through the steps (all they had me do was reboot my phone and dial ##847446# again) and it still didn't work and apparently THIS IS THE ONLY WAY VIRGIN MOBILE CAN ACTIVATE YOUR PHONE image the tech dude I talked to said he's NEVER experienced a problem like this befor and asked me where I bought it and I said online (didn't say Ebay) image he told me to wait while he was gonna fill out the paper work to send me a replacement phone. After about 2 minutes he got back on the line and told me they were gonna send my replacement phone + a return envelope for my defective phone and to send my defective phone back when I received my replacement. It should be here Tuesday or Wednesday through Fedex.

Here's the catch though..






































































































































I ain't sending my 'defective' phone back image. Once I receive my replacement I'ma just remove this custom ROM and go back to the stock ROM so that the phone can be activated :dancingcool:. Then I'ma log into my account a.ssociated with my 'defective' phone and switch service to my new phone so I don't have to spend $35 again on service I already paid for. What am I gonna do with 2 phones image

You sure they aint gonna throw a charge on your account for not receiving the 'defective' phone?

Or you gonna be on some sh*t like "fu*k them I aint gone pay it"

Then they send you to collections and your credit score drops 100 points? Nice


I could be wrong, ive never done the pre pay sh*t....do they even know your real name with pre paid?

Yeah they know my name, phone number and address. That's all pre-paid asks for though. In the grand scheme I highly doubt Virgin Mobile is watching over me, I'm sure they send out hundreds of replacements a day. Also, I never got my phone from them, I got it from Ebay (it's also used), the tech guy who hooked me up with the replacement doesn't know that, he just knows I got it on the internet (maybe he thinks I bought it brand new off Amazon).

The only reason that I think they're even sending me a replacement is because I have $35 in my account already. I've already paid for service and it's going to waste because I can't activate my phone to use it due to me putting that custom ROM on there when I should of waited and got my service THEN did the modding.

And there's a million excuses someone could use to not send their phone back. My aunt called and told ATT she hated her phone and they sent her a new one and told her to send her old one back, she never did so I don't think there's anything to it. These phones are a dime a dozen, they only cost $150 retail and the tech dude said that when they receive my defective phone they will transfer over my service and balance to my new phone for me.

But there's an option on Vmobile's site that allows you to do that yourself

Just wanted to say the sh*t came in on Tuesday, opened up the box really excited like only to find out they shipped me just the PHONE, no back, no battery, no charger

Mother fu*kers really expect me to send my old phone back after disrespecting me like that?

Ordered a back + battery off Ebay for my old phone since I had to use those parts on my new one. It cost $21 should be here any day now

You got $21 dollars invested in this plus your time. All they gotta do is ban the esn if they really care. Your going through alot of trouble for a $85 phone
- $21 = $64
you may not can even use it.
