[Deal] Virgin Mobile LG G Stylo for $59.99

LG G Stylo

The Virgin Mobile #LGGStylo is available for just $59.99 on eBay today. The smartphone was originally launched back in May 2015, so it’s not the newest kid on the block. The handset comes with a rather large 5.7-inch display and is accompanied by a handy stylus as well, which makes this a pretty attractive proposition at this price point.

The handset comes with a 5.7-inch 720p display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable), an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and a 3,000 mAh battery.

You won’t get a fancy stylus like the one on Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, but since it’s a capacitive stylus, you can do your casual note taking and sketches. If you’re not one for styluses, you can simply keep it as a party trick. To summarize, the G Stylo is a handy offering for under $60 and well worth your attention.

The #LG #Volt2 from Virgin Mobile can now be yours for just $59.99 thanks to a deal over at Amazon. For those unaware, the Volt 2 is a budget-ranged offering that usually retails for about $150 or so. The handset is undoubtedly one of the better mid-rangers out there, especially coming from a big OEM like LG.

amazon

The Volt 2 comes with a 5-inch 720p display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable), a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, Android 5.1 Lollipop and a 2,540 mAh battery.

Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint now offering free calls to Belgium

Belgium Attacks

Belgium Attacks

In the wake of the ghastly terrorist attacks at Brussels, Belgium, carriers in the U.S. have now announced free calls and texts to Belgium starting today. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint (including Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile) have made the announcements.

Sprint has mentioned that it will offer free texts and calls to Belgium through March 31. T-Mobile will offer free calls through the 25th of March, AT&T till the 28th and Verizon till the 23rd of March (tomorrow). The carriers might bill the customers of the charges, but will also make a mention of the credit on the bill.

This is a novel thing that the carriers have jointly done and will go a long way in keeping in touch with their friends and loved ones in Belgium. While we wish that some carriers offered the promotion for slightly longer, it’s a noteworthy gesture nevertheless. Some of these carriers are offering a similar service to Turkey which was also hit by a terrorist attack not too long ago.

Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile launching Galaxy S7 duo on March 11 and March 18

Galaxy S7 - Galaxy S7 edge

Galaxy S7

We learnt earlier today that the #Samsung #GalaxyS7 and the #GalaxyS7edge pre-orders have officially begun shipping from Best Buy and Verizon. In the wake of this news, we’re now hearing that two of the most prominent prepaid players in the U.S., Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will also carry the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge.

Boost Mobile will supposedly start sales by March 11 while Virgin Mobile customers will have to wait exactly a week until the 18th of March. For those unaware, March 11 is the scheduled global release date of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge, which means Boost Mobile customers are getting it right on time.

It is mentioned that both the carriers will sell the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge in the Black Onyx color variant, so subscribers and potential customers will not have many options to choose from. The smartphone will retail for $649.99 in the U.S. (not including taxes).

Samsung Galaxy J3

The #Samsung #GalaxyJ3 smartphone has just been announced by Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile respectively, carrying an attractive price tag. Both carriers are charging $180 for the smartphone, which is slightly expensive given what this Samsung midranger brings to the table.

For the price mentioned above, you’re getting a 5-inch 720p AMOLED display, a 1.2 GHz quad core processor (make unknown), a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable), a 2,600 mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Virgin Mobile is making the smartphone available right away, while Boost Mobile will have it in stores on Jan 18, with online availability commencing the next day on Jan 19.

The smartphone will sit in nicely with the two carriers’ catalog of budget and midrange Android smartphones. It will be interesting to see if any of the bigger carriers will pick the smartphone up, although it’s pretty likely that the Galaxy J3 will remain limited to the prepaid carriers of the U.S.

Virgin Mobile Will Let You Stream Music From Certain Services Without Using Data

Virgin Mobile Data Free Music

Virgin Mobile just updated their data plans to have higher allotments and now they’re set to introduce another change. Starting this Friday, October 9th, certain music streaming services will not count against your data.

If this sounds familiar, it’s because T-Mobile has been doing this since mid-2014 with their “#MusicFreedom” feature. The one difference here is that, for now, the only services on Virgin Mobile that don’t count against data usage are Pandora, Slacker, and iHeartRadio.

Virgin Mobile does say however that they will continue to add more streaming services to their #DataFreeMusic offering. So if your favorite service isn’t covered yet, such as Spotify, Google Play Music, or others, they could add it soon.

Since Virgin Mobile is a Sprint MVNO, it’s also possible that they might be testing the waters on a lower scale to see if people like the offering. That’s purely personal speculation, but it would be a good move for Sprint to make against T-Mobile.

But if you listen to one of the three services that are currently supported, it won’t count against your data usage starting Friday. If you’re a Virgin Mobile customer or looking to switch and you use these services, go ahead and check this out.
