Darn, there are no reviews yet for this manufacturer.
Fido overcharges you for things you don't even know. I have a plan of $55/month and i have never paid that much! I always have to pay either $100-$250. It's horrible ! And i can't seem to find a good option to use anymore.Less
Keeps going on forever!
This phone is 11 years old and in 3rd users hand with original battery and operating fine. Sits in my car thru hot and cold as emergency phone with 100 min/mos local free calls per mos, for $100 per year + tax with Bell mobility(they don't advertise this plan). Yes that's me below too, 2 years ago. Of course antenna is a little bent, but still runs fine with good reception. ChasLess
I never had a issue with virgin mobile really with the actual coverage or customer service because I never had to deal with their customer service call centre reps, but then I broke my phone and sent it away for warrenty service, after a month of waiting and having to call them after a month to get my loanerphone and kit to send my broken phone to virgin, I got the loaner phone, then they wanted more than what the phone retailed for to fix it, so I asked them to send me my phone back which they did, I sent them their loanerphone back, through the courier service that brought me the loaner phone with the virgin mobile supplied kit, I received a e-mail stating that they received the loaner phone back and I thought the situation was resolved, 2 months later my phone got shut off, my phone said to dial *611 to access customer service which the phone would not do, after I did manage to get ahold of virgin mobile they said they charged me 250$ each for 2 other loanerphones they sent me. I was like what the heck. you sent me one phone, why on earth would you send me 2 more phones before confirming where the other one went? then they said well canada post confirms you received the phones, as I informed them I received one phone from purolator courier service not canada post, I don't know who signed for those other phones or where they went but first of all you are the idiots who sent 2 more phones out to god knows where and I'm the one expected to pay up for your mistake, after 40 calls and getting hung up on and lied to by many different call centre agents from every country other than my own country (canada) who couldn't say my name correctly and had a obvious language barrier and having to explain myself to every single agent I talked too because nobody warm transfers or puts any information in their "notes" for each call. i finally got to their "solutions" centre who yes admitted they did screw up by sending 2 other phones to some other adress I did not live @, and took the charges off my phone, but would have to send me back to "billing" to have them reactivate my phone. when I got to that person they had no idea about any of this and refused to re-activate my phone and told me I was at fault. sadly BELL OWNS VIRGIN MOBILE in canada, so I can't switch to them and in the area I live in Rogers is the only other real alternative but rogers has no coverage where I live oddly enough. so I couldn't even switch cell carriers and had to basicly sit down and take what garbage virgin mobile was trying to feed me. so after a couple of more calls I finally got it cleared up for now, I'm holding my breath as it's been less than 24 hours since they turned my phone back on and I just received a e-mail from them saying I owed $614....needless to say once I'm able to cut this parasite of a company off of my wallet I am done with virgin mobile,. they get 2 thumbs and 2 big toes DOWN in my eyes not for their coverage but for their complete LACK of customer service!Less
Bought this new in 2001
Yes, I have hung onto this phone for 11 years (2012 now). BUT it is an amazingly durable phone, and costs me $100/year prepaid.Less
Love this phone
Feb 2011, got it free with a plan more than 6 years ago and it's still going, the speakers, the reception, is amazing. Although I don't use most of the features, I love this phone, hope I don't have to put it to rest.Less
I've had my phone since 1996...yes, 15 years! We've drive all over the country and in Canada.....it picks up a signal often when other newer phones do not. Though my husband thinks I'm nuts and I now need to buy batteries online.....I'm not relinquishing this great and super sized model! PJLess
Basic Indestructable Cellphone.
I got this as a present from my dad 5 years and it still hasn't broken. I've dropped it so many times and it at the most it's only gotten scratched a bit and the battery fallen out. Still works exactly the way it did when I bought it. It's great if you only use your phone for random talking and texting, a pretty useful prepaid phone. Also an effective alarm clock, especially if you use the 3 times after 5 minutes setting on the loudest volume. A few cons over the years though: The battery heats up if you're storing it close to you, but it still works fine. Text messages sometimes take a while time to send and receive. Reception is a getting to be a problem too - the older it gets, the harder it is the find a good signal. Now that I'm in university it's harder to get a signal on campus, I end up seeing the no signal screen in most of my classes, and it might be attributed to the phone's age since there's a bell tower close by. Should be decent reception. I also don't like how if there is no signal, there is no time on the LCD window on the front.Less
WORKS ON FOR EVER
Used cell phone given me and started again by me as new owner....been in my car as emergency phone summer hot and winter freezing, in glove box,charging when car runs ...still runs fine after about 7 years with original battery and 3 cars!!Less
Had this phone for almost 4 years until it finally broke because the charging pin came loose. I could toss this phone all over the place and it would bounce right back, not flimsy like these new ones. Cant do anything with it except make calls and text but what else would you need to do? Great phone and did me well despite being ugly as hell.Less
Audiovox CDM9200 phone
The first thing I don't like is that the phone does not have a picture chip, so you need to text your picture(s) out of the phone, or get a ubs transphere cable. Second, the battery for this phone was discontinued in sept.2009, and even on the internet, tracking one down is geting harder and harder to do. What good is a phone if there is no battery for it? And last, I have only been able to find a car charger for this phone. When I've gotten wall chargers for this model, the plug that fits into the phone is just a hair larger and won't fit the phone.Less
