As of 2011 most Virgin Mobile feature-phones, e.g. the Kyocera Loft, Rumor2, Rumor Touch(?) and Restore, use slower 1xRTT networking. The Intercept, Curve, and Optimus all support EVDO networking. The Optimus is the only device with EVDO Rev.A, which has slightly faster speed overall and improved ping times, which improves VoIP quality.

Both types of networking are considered 3G by the industry, although in some instances 1xRTT (1X) is slower overall.
