As for a suggestion to the OP, you might look for a used Optimus V for cheap. You might also keep an eye on Christmas sales for a good sale price on one of the older VM smartphones.
Perhaps. Well, if this is the case, I would take a look at the LG Optimus Elite. It is a much more robust phone than the Optimus V, and yet, can be had for around $99. And, you can activate it on the grandfathered $25 plan. It beat the manufacture cut-off. I'm currently using one and upgraded from the Op V.
