I've been getting busy signals dialing my own voicemail and my pharmacy. Good thing my apartment isn't on fire. Come on, Virgin Mobile, you can do better than this. Once instead of giving me a busy signal, it routed me to a message saying they were experiencing network congestion- between 2 and 3 o'clock in the afternoon, on a Tuesday (I don't know what peak cell usage hours are, but I'd guess not now).
Now, I'd understand if a major disaster had hit, like that time we had an earthquake and even Verizon's network was overwhelmed, but as far I know nothing major has happened. Hopefully this is an aberration and not something I can expect from Virgin going forward.
