Virgin Mobile rumored to be getting HTC EVO 3D; will offer it as the HTC EVO V 4G

continue to offer 4G hotspot functionality.
No contract means no subsidy on the price of the phone. So far though, there is no word on how much Virgin would charge for the phone and when it would be released. According to the source, the HTC EVO 3D will be offered by Virgin Mobile in both grey and plum. The latter had been an exclusive color for Best Buy customers.

Theres nothing to dislike. My cousin had this phone and before he went to jail I played with it for a few days and the performance was great. But I do think this is the worst Idea ever. Your average consumer won't buy a 400$ phone. This price better be very competitive.

Hope this becomes a trend for Virgin, bringing older sprint phones would help keep up with Straight Talk, and other BYOD carriers. If Virgin could release New-Old Sprint phones every two months I think they would give other carriers a run for there money. I vote for the HTC Arrive next :)

Wow. Typically Virgin Mobile has phones that are about 18 months behind the current top of the line devices. This would shrink that gap a bit. I wonder what they'll charge though. The Moto Triumph is still $280 at a lot of places (it's almost like a slightly mini Evo). Evo 3D would probably be like $350-400.

i'm going to seriously doubt that. and IF in fact Virgin Mobile gets "wimax 4g" there are very few markets it would work in, and Sprint is no longer adding new wimax markets. I really don't think they are going to have wimax. mainly because if virgin mobile does get wimax, it will be wasting spectrum that i'm sure sprint will want to use in the near future.

It's very possible. It's been said Virgin & Boost would be getting 4G this year. & a reliable source said it's been moved to the later half of this year. With that being said, they have to get 4G devices, this would follow up with those plans.

The EVO 3D is a great phone. Maybe not quite as good as the SGSII but the second best phone on Sprint currently. One of the top hitters over all too, I think it's a bit underrated. It will look terribly outdated later this year though once the SGSIII, EVO One series and new motos launch. Still pretty cool that you can pick up a phone of this quality on Virgin Mobile. I can't imagine anyone willing to pay the price it'll cost though.

I will switch to Boost if this is true. I will cut my bill in half! Boost works as much as VZW in my area except for LTE.

I noticed this article fails to mention if its Virgin Mobile USA getting this phone. It most likely is going to Canada. USA gets the sh**t phones tied to Virgin Mobile.
