Are 2G phones compatible with the Virgin network and the new SIMs?
I am currently waiting for a Forum Team Member to look into my invalid SIM issues.
In the meantime I am looking at purchasing a SIM free phone. I'm looking at basic phones and the specifications for the ones I am interested in just have 2G network capability.
Does Virgin Mobile still operate a 2G network?
Will the new SIMs be compatible with the 2G phones that are currently on the market? I note that Vodafone has a 2G Doro 1370 on PAYG, so I assume so.
Also whilst browsing on Argos, I noted someone asked a question about a SIM free 2G Nokia 105 and whether it would work with the new Virgin SIM cards. The response was that the user would have to choose a provider that had 2G availability and that this did not include Virgin. The user has since purchased the phone and it works with the new SIM.
Will there come a point in the future when 2G capability is removed from the network? Do I need to think about purchasing a 3G phone at the very least?
