Virgin Mobile Takes on T-Mobile AT&T Merger with Sexy Sparah Party Video

Virgin Mobile Takes on T-Mobile AT&T Merger with Sexy Sparah Party Video

It's time for Virgin Mobile's "Sparah" to take on T-Mobile and AT&T in an advertisement that not only paints the stark white backgrounds of T-Mobile, AT&T, Apple, and etcetera commercials black, they take T-Mobile and AT&T's characters down with them. Sparah is the name of Virgin Mobile USA's summer 2011 marketing campaign, one in which two supposed complete strangers have been lifted from obscurity to be manufactured into a celebrity couple to promote Virgin Mobile - Spencer Falls and Sarah Carroll. Apparently they're very popular and everyone in the celebrity world hates them or loves them or some combination of the two - now they're coming down on T-Mobile and AT&T with some sweet video action.

Motorola Triumph Review [Virgin Mobile]

Motorola Triumph Review [Virgin Mobile]

Today I have a sleek Motorola phone you'll want to check out. This is the Motorola Triumph and he learned most of his simple edges and design from the Droid X. In a way that is what we have here, a slimmed down, simplified yet nice version of the Droid X. This is the first Motorola Android phone carried by Virgin Mobile and it aims to be the best too. For a no contract phone this is a pretty solid buy for only $299 considering many phones of this level sold for $499 in recent months.

Motorola Triumph Hands-On and Unboxing

I received a little surprise yesterday from FedEx and it just so happened to be the Motorola Triumph that is headed to Virgin Mobile. The Triumph was first announced back in June, we were live in NYC for some hands-on time. For a little recap this is the Motorola Triumph and it's headed to Virgin Mobile and my favorite part is this triumphant phone won the battle with Blur and will in fact be running stock Android 2.2 FroYo (aka Vanilla) and will look and run as Google intended. I'm excited already!

Virgin Mobile USA to start data throttling

Virgin Mobile USA to start data throttling

I think we all knew the day was inevitable when the final carrier offering truly unlimited data would start throttling users and that day is now here. Virgin Mobile will start to throttle the heaviest users of data on the pre-paid service. The last time a major carrier moved to data throttling for heavy users was Verizon when it started throttling back in February of 2011. If you are wondering what Virgin considers a heavy user and if the throttling will affect you at least Sprint gives a clear indication of who it will be slowing down.

Motorola TRIUMPH Announced

Motorola TRIUMPH Announced

Today in NYC we heard of a device of some note: inside its chassis is a phone that's ready and willing to be your very first Virgin Mobile Android device from Motorola AND in fact your first Motorola phone on Virgin altogether. This device will be released with no contract plan in tow and although it wont be winning any contests for processor power, screen size, or storage, it'll certainly be a choice people have to make for the big V if they want a bigtime Android phone from the M, if you know what I mean.

Virgin Mobile to throttle $40 unlimited MiFi after 5GB

Virgin Mobile to throttle $40 unlimited MiFi after 5GB

Virgin Mobile has announced that it will be throttling its $40 unlimited MiFi data plan as of February 15, allowing users 5GB of regular data access but after that limiting the available bandwidth until the end of the month. Spotted by David Pogue, the change appears to be a recognition by Virgin Mobile that, if you offer truly unlimited data, some users are going to hammer your network.
