I received a text saying I'll be getting data. I thought how wonderful, but how?
I'm on a basic cheap phone...terrible phone. So I called and got the Philippines, and struggled to have a conversation, but was told I can buy a phone for $25. The choices were a Coolpad Avail or a Unimax 637c, and those are the only 2 phones that Assurance Wireless supports. I don't want to send my debit card info to the Philippines, so she told me I can buy them locally as long as it was Virgin mobile.
Okay, so I googled them and found out they are terrible phones. and I already have a terrible phone. I then checked Assurance Wireless site, FAQ - compatible phones to see what they had to say. They list ZTE Quest™,Unimax U673C, Coolpad Avail, ZTE Awe, ZTE Reef, Kyocera Event, Samsung GALAXY Ring™: What?
There are 7 choices? yay! After comparing on line, I decided on the Samsung, but wanted to be sure I didn't spend money on a useless phone so I called back. Got the Philippines again and was told the ONLY option is a ZTE Quest or the Unimax.
Sigh. I asked what happened to the Coolpad the first lady was trying to sell me? What about the phones listed on Assurance Wireless site? He only repeated...
the two phones are ZTE Quest and Unimax.
I asked what the story is and he hung up on me. So, 3 different Assurance Wireless affiliated sources gave me 3 different answers, and still don't know if I can use the Samsung.
