Data! Data! Data! Virgin Mobile USA Unlimited customers get more high-speed 3G/4G LTE data

By Danielle Babbington

Get the conga line going! It’s time to celebrate as our Virgin Mobile Unlimited plans1 now include more high-speed data. Starting at $35/month, you get Unlimited Talk, Text and Data with 1GB of high-speed data2. Check out for more information.

You have even more to get excited about with the launch of LG Tribute 2™, available now for $99.99 (plus tax). It features a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and access to Enhanced LTE/Sprint Spark™ for high-speed Web surfing.

LG Tribute 2
Reminiscent of iconic LG devices, the power and lock button and volume controls are located on the back of the smartphone. This enhances your ability to grip the device comfortably in the palm of your hand and control volume where your finger naturally falls.

LG Tribute 2 is built on Android™ 5.1, Lollipop, and boasts a 4.5-inch IPS FWVGA (Full Wide VGA) display with 854×480 resolution.

Taking selfies is also easier than ever with Gesture shot. A simple hand gesture while using the front camera snaps the selfie.

To take a photo, simply raise your hand with an open palm until the front camera detects it (a box appears on the screen). Then, upon making a fist starts a countdown will begin before the photo is taken (allowing time to position).

Use Interval shot to make sure you get the perfect selfie on the first try by making a fist twice, or by touching and holding the display shutter key – the camera will consecutively take four photos at a time.

With a 1,900mAh battery, LG Tribute 2 offers up to 16 hours of talk time. Other key features include:

  • Knock Code™: Set a personalized knock sequence to wake and unlock your phone
  • QuickMemo®+: Write or draw on nearly any screen and schedule memos to appear at certain times using calendar inputs .
  • Wi-Fi® Connectivity – 802.11 b/g/n
