Yes, actually I cannot get regular cell service from my house unless I connect with Wi-Fi. Even my activation process was done via Wi-Fi. Plus Google had my back up from my old Android and loaded all my contact info, files and etc... within minutes of my activation.

Will only work with Virgin Mobile, and only with their "Beyond Talk" plan. Have had Virgin Mobile as my carrier for several years, I am very satisfied with the quality of my connections and service. This, of course, is dependent on your location.

Which one do u recommend the ZTE AWE or the LG Optimus F3?

by far the virgin mobile... i had the LG optimus f3 and was very unhappy with it.. the range was horrible.. i found myself saying "can you hear me.. can you hear me now..." over and over again!

answer 2
I have the Optimus F3 and it's an excellent performing phone, and has 4G, which if you have it in your area - is a definite plus. Incredible battery life is another.

However there is some issue with the phone that many people are having, myself included, with a corrupt operating system and key Google apps shutting down. Seems there is no fix at this time, and it seems to be a Google issue as only Google apps are problematic.

So this might be a safer bet at this time.

The ZTE Awe is way better than LG Optimus. I had the LG for around a year and couldn't wait to switch to ZTE. The ZTE battery and data last longer than Optimus, also the Optimus doesn't connect to the internet very good. I'd go with ZTE. Hope it helps!

I personally went with the awe..I didn't know which to choose eiether..but I love this phone so far...the differences really are price...storage and 3g or 4g...the awe lets you add a storage card is only about 60 bucks and is 3g..the optimus doesnt allow extra storage is about 100 bucks and is 4g..I am still unsure on this but when I checked 4g coverage in my area there was none so why pay the extra money for a 4g phone? I would tell you to double check to make sure..but my 3g awe runs smoothly and its pretty fast!!! gud look it was a hard decision!

answer 3
For me, I have both phones... and I prefer the Awe over the Ring.

The Awe is slightly bigger than the Ring, which is surprising since both retain a 4-inch display. Weight wise, the Ring is a little heavier and slightly thicker than the Awe. But for overall performance between the two... I'm partial to the Awe since for me, it runs better and is more user friendly (in my estimation).

There are no roaming charges, the phone either has service in a particular location or it doesn't. Check Virgin Mobile web site for their coverage map. While on their site, check out the Questions and Answers and see if anyone has commented on service in Wheeling, WV.
