    Hi,

    I just started with an LG Volt and Virgin Mobile yesterday. I have been having problems making/receiving calls in a place I had no problems doing so with PagePlusCellular ( uses Verizon's network ). I have also had trouble getting a data connection. I opened up a support ticket with Virgin Mobile.

    In case it turns out that Virgin Mobile's network just sucks in my area I was wondering how hard it would be to modify my LG Volt for use with another network. For example, T-Mobile.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to take that device to a network that uses GSM technology, such as T-Mobile, AT&T or similar. You'll need a new device.

    If possible, you may want to consider selling that device and using the funds to purchase a new device. There are a lot of reasonably priced phones worth looking at that would be supported by T-Mobile.

    Resetting to factory settings won't wipe it clean. Stuff will just be invisible (to you) but it will still be there for recovery. Better wipe your device clean remotely, from an internet connected PC, with the free AndroidLost app. That will actually remove a lot of stuff.
    But the best solution to make really sure your naughty pics cannot be recovered from that phone is to waltz over it with a steam roller or melt it in a blast furnace.

    I agree with the above post. After you factory reset be sure to remove any files from the SD card, internal and external.
