Excerpt: What can I say? It is what is is, folks...a great little phone at a very affordable price. Basic phone and text with an unimpressive camera and caveman texting, but waddya WANT for cheap? It's got great standby battery life. I charge it like once a week!
Pros: It does what it NEEDS to do!, Great battery, CHEAP!
These phones are $10 at the Virgin Mobile website.

Summary: I like this phone. Feels good in my hand, clear, loud volume, large buttons, pictures ok, tho I don't often use the camera. My only issue is the proprietary headset jack. It's not a 2.5mm, so my headsets do not fit.
Summary: This phone is good at what it is intended to do, which is to allow you to make or receive calls away from home. I use this phone strictly as a convenience when away from home, not for up to the minute status reports of what my family, friends and associates are doing.
Virgin Mobile Samsung Mantra - a Warning Regarding Uploading Photos
11 December 2010
Summary: After substantial time, and some money spent (a USB cable and a Bluetooth adapter), I have found that it is impossible to upload photos directly to your computer from the Virgin Mobile version of the Samsung Mantra, either by USB or Bluetooth.
Summary: This phone is perfectly fine if all you want to do is make calls. Call quality is more than sufficient in my area, and if you are someone who doesn't live on their phone the battery lasts 5 to 6 days without needing a charge.
Summary: I agree with the other reviews here, this is a good phone all around, but what I really want to amplify is that the display particularly inside is very good. Pictures actually look sharp and text is easy to read. Coming from a Virgin Mobile Flare it was like night and day.
Summary: I got the Samsung Mantra about a week ago and so far I like it for a basic flip phone. The design is sleek and nice and I like that it has a camera and bluetooth capable. The screen is nice and it's really easy to use.
Excerpt: I bought this phone to replace my X-Tc for the time being until the Rumor Touch is released. I am very pleased with the phone. It doesn't have alot of features, but the main things people look for in a phone are there. Over all the phone is a really nice replacement or even good as a first phone
Summary: I have been a Virgin Mobile customer since they first started as a prepaid cell phone provider. I have been quite pleased with their service and variety of pricing plans. Unfortunately Virgin Mobile phones have never been the greatest, the only good thing is that if you buy a cheap phone, you don't...
