    Question Can I get a LG Rumor Touch on a payLo plan?

    It seems like they only have the Beyond Talk plan for this phone but is there anyway I could get it on a payLo plan?

    There was an announcement recently that the Samsung Restore and one other phone that I don't recall are now available for Paylo. The Restore is probably your best option. The web site would be the definitive source of info.

    Based on what I know of the Virgin Mobile schism system for their phones , older phones (Rumor 2 and earlier ) will work with both BT and PL. Touchscreens and Smartphones are all BT only. The Samsung Restore//M575 and the Loft/S2300 are the same phones but they have them available under different names (the BT version has the name, the PL version has the numbered version). They are qwerty only , NOT touchscreens. And from what I see, a M575 won't work on BT and a Restore won't work on Paylo...

    From what I understand a BT phone cannot be put on PL but a PL phone may be usable on BT. Unfortunately, the most desirable phones are all on BT...

    Anyone has more info, please add.

    Rumor 2 on Paylo or Beyond talk. Yes and yes. Older Virgin Mobile phones that work on both plans include the Shuttle (3g slider), Slash (reliable Samsung Slider), Jax (Good Kyocera Bar phone) and others. They were all made BEFORE Paylo and Beyond Talk existed so they should work on ALL plans.

    Not yet.
    No Contract means I have all the power.
    They want me, but they can't have me...

    I've always wondered about this. Maybe the fancier phones will eventually trickle down.
