Nope, Virgin Mobile Canada is completely separate from Virgin Mobile USA; both of their corporate parents (US: Sprint, Canada: Bell) just license the name from Virgin Group. These days they don't even use the same network technology; Bell is migrating everyone onto HSPA/W-CDMA/LTE.

Virgin Mobile Canada is owned by Bell. They operate on an HSPA/LTE network. Some of their older devices operate on CDMA. And yes, they offered the iPhone 5 at the same time as Bell did.

Bell switched to HSPA so that they could release the iPhone 3Gs. Telus did the same thing back in 2009.

    • Rolling out a new beta release now with some minor adjustments and additional logging. Please log out of the app (or remove your session(s) from the website if the app is not providing the log out option) and try to log in again. If you experience an issue, please submit a diagnostic report immediately after your attempt. Logs only capture a limited amount of information, and sometimes a delay causes the useful information to already be overwritten. I also sent an e-mail to the beta crew offering a faster way to receive beta updates, please let me know if you have any questions.
    • what differences? My son is thinking of going from the 21 ultra to the pixel pro... Yea, nay??
    • I just hope it doesnt make me reset my PW to log in every 5th time.. Sprints side has been wonky for a while. The 1 year I went to Tmo, I did like their online stuff 3-1 vs sprint Having a biz account might be making it troublesome, but I don't know why, everything in there is pretty straight forward. I heard it "might" be the financing issues on the sprint side.  I do know if I want to upgrade any of the lines, it still has to go through sprint, if I try on the Tmo side itll force me to pay off the few I have, vs it just bringing them over.
    • Just switched to the S22 Ultra from the Pixel 7 Pro. Love this beast!!
    • Yeah that change was a result of the null moving from one point in the code to another with the latest update, ha. I'm digging into it. Appreciate all the quick feedback from everyone! Hopefully can figure out what is going on and resolve it today.
