What does this mean to you?
Members running on the CDMA network won't have access to any of their phone services including voice, 911 services, text, and data. You won't be able to make or receive calls, send or receive texts or use any data on your CDMA phone.
Heads up! If you're a Prepaid Member you won't be able to top up your account after March 20, 2018. Your prepaid balance will expire on September 20, 2018. However, if you upgrade your phone to one that works on the latest network before your balance expiry date, your balance will be transferred to your new phone and top-up blocks will be removed.
For more info, give us a shout at 611 from your Virgin Mobile phone or 1-888-999-2321.
What can you do to be sure you don't lose your phone services?
Don't sweat it, you can switch to our new HSPA/LTE network which gives you access to super-fast speeds. It's easy to upgrade to a hot new phone on the new network, just head to My Account to get started, or learn more about how to upgrade. You can also check out our interactive coverage map for a detailed view of our network coverage in these areas.
How do I know if my phone is affected?
Just check the inside of your phone for a SIM card. The SIM card slot is normally located underneath the battery. If your phone does not need a SIM card then it's probably a CDMA phone.

Heads up! An old self serve app is being shutdown.
On December 31, 2016, we're shutting down the old self serve app that some Members are still using to access your account details.
