There's currently a great deal going on at a local Target for a Virgin Mobile Kyocera Rise (http://www.virginmobileusa.com/shop/cell-phones/kyocera-rise-phone/features/). What would I need to do to get it to work on Ting?
I don't have Virgin Mobile service (the current phone number I would want to port is on T-Mobile Prepaid), so the phone would be unactivated and new-in-box. Since it's Android 4.0 (ICS), would rooting it help? Could I lose any features in the process? What expenses would I incur?
