You seem to be confusing Virgin Mobile with Sprint. They are 2 different services even though VMo uses the Sprint PCS network. Also, you can't get speeds of 3.2Mb. The phone connects at 3.2 Mb but actual speeds can only be about half that at best or about 1.6Mb at the highest and a lot slower if the tower is busy. Here the speed has dropped to below 56k dial-up speeds and it's mostly useless for anything at all. I don't recommend anyone get VMo unless they try it first to make sure it even works in their area and even then it probably won't last.
