DO NOT BUY Virgin Mobile’s vFLASH DATACARD even if they offer it to you for free.

If you want this datacard (Modem device) I will give it to you for free.

I was victim of their trap. And this modem is laying useless since then. I would like to give it to anyone for free if they want. But I can’t tolrate their bad service.
