    Hello everyone, My phone is in the process of shipping and I was curious as to whether OPO works efficiently (or if it works at all) for virgin mobile. They have an amazing deal and usually things like this are too good to be true.

    What I'm really wondering is have any of you experienced their 4g service and whether it works quick enough? If not what do you recommend?

    I'm hoping to go for virgin mobile too, they use the EE network I believe so it should work as I've heard people say on here

    Is this for use in the US, UK or somewhere else? Think virgin mobile is meant to work in the UK but not sure about other countries

    Are you saying that if I can get a SIM card I can activate the OPO through virgin mobile?

    I find Three to be the better network in the UK, Virgin is so slow and with Three you can tether, i have recently closed a virgin account down due to slow speeds and lack of coverage

    Redpocket looks like what I'll be going with however I've had terrible experience with Sprint network, but that could be what their service is like in San Diego. The thing is SD isn't just some town in the middle of Nebraska, it's one of California's biggest cities so I'm a little skeptical.
    Have you tried their service, yet? If so how was it?

    From what I have read people have been able to get their OPO to work with Virgin Mobile in the UK but after hours of constantly trying different methods of APN settings that people have said to use still I have came across any sign of it working, I'm also not even able to find Virgin the the Available networks area
