Hi Allegro,

I more question about ordering. In the "First name" and "Last name", what did you fill up? Do you need to fill in "the resort name" somewhere?
Thanks.

I put my name. The only place I put the resort name was the address line.

Hello, we will be at WDW next Sat (Mar 1) and planning to order the phone today. Some questions.

1). There are only two address lines, if I do the following, I do not have space for Resort address, is that fine?
Address Line 1: Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
Address Line 2: Guest Arrv. Mar 1, 2008
City: Lake Buena Vista
ZIP code: FL 32830


So do I need to put (if yes, where?) GF's full address: 4401 Grand Floridian Way?

2). Phone number: shall I give my Canadian phone number, or the resort phone number?

3). I am ordering two phones (the 2nd phone is for my parents). Can I activate both phones in one call, or is it easier to activate from their web site?

Thanks!!!!

Am I getting this right?: Virgin Mobile has a free phone with $9.99 airtime purchase. Free shipping and free activation. If I were to order two phones, it would cost me about $20, and we could call back and forth for 100 minutes on the 20/10 plan.

What am I missing? Sounds like too good a deal to pass up.

check the delivery - the tracfone wont be sold in canada and canadians can't use their cc to purchase minutes so we can't top up unless we buy a card in the states.

Actually the only thing you missed it that when you call to activate your phone there is a $2.50 bonus activation that will give you even more time.

hmmm.....
No.
I would put:

Address Line 1: Grand Floridian Guest Arr. Mar 1 08
Address Line 2: ### Whatever street
City: Lake Buena Vista
ZIP code: FL 32830

I think I put something like that.

Thanks, however their web site is very rigid and do not even accept "Lake Buena Vista" - there is not enough space to type the "a" - I submitted as "Lake Buena Vist" and hopefully it will work

I ordered my phone from Virgin web site yesterday - but their system screwed my shipping address (not sure why but it looks like an unreasonable system bug)

Here is what I typed as shipping address:

Address Line 1: Grand Floridian Resort (check-in Mar 1)
Address Line 2: 4401 Grand Floridian Way
City: Lake BuenaVista
State: FL
ZIP: 32830

However, after the order is submitted (I used PayPal) - the addresses (both Shipping & Billing) are displayed as follows (also on the order status page):

Address Line 1: 4401 Grand Floridian
Address Line 2:
City: Orlando
State: FL
ZIP: 32830

As you might now notice the problems
a). Address Line 1 (what I have entered) disappeared
b). The original Address Line 2 has moved up to Address Line 1, and they cut the last word in street address - should be 4401 Grand Floridian Way
c). City = I typed in Lake BuenaVista, but the system changed to Orlando.

Anyone had a similar problem? I hope the phone will be delivered properly - but has to wait to see what I got the FedEX tracking number.

WISH ME LUCK

For those who have ordered from virginmobileusa and paid with paypal, what did you do about the shipping address section on paypal? I tried to change that address to the hotel, but couldn't change it to anything other than a Canadian address. Sometimes I've seen a "no shipping required" option on paypal, but that didn't come up as an option.

Thanks in advance for your help. I want to order today!

Text message to home phone..CHEAPER!!!!

Text message is much easier and cheaper!!!!!
Not alot of people are aware that you can text messege to a home / landline phone now...instead of calling and saying all is well..text messege....here is a little article about it!
I never knew it existed until a friend told me about it!

Text to Landline

The Text to Landline Service offered by Bell Mobility (and everyother cel service out there) enables clients to
send text messages to any landline phone. Text messages are converted into an
automated voice message delivered to the recipient's phone. The message can
then be heard live or is sent to voicemail if the call is received by an
answering machine or voicemail. A confirmation message is sent to the sender
indicating whether the message was successfully delivered to a live person or
a voicemail system.
If delivered to a person, the recipient will have the option to respond
immediately by sending a voice message back to the original sender, who
automatically receives a notification message. The Text to Landline service
works with any landline in Canada or the US. Regular text messaging rates
apply.

I believe I made an alternate( the resorts address) address on paypal but vigin used what was on entered on their site - I could tell as my typing skills were so bad that I knew which address they used

Thank you everyone - a little update (now I am at WDW). Received my virgin phones and activated from their web site. They assigned a 321 area code though but it is ok. Got a $12.50 balance credited to our phones.

One thing - Virgin Mobile indeed screwed on our delivery address. Luckily FedEX was very helpful and considerate - after lengthy explanation - they allowed me (as a receipent) to modify the correct delivery address. The packaged arrived on Friday afternoon at GF and kept at a package room for me. Upon check-in yesterday, a CM delivered the package right to our room
