Evo V 149....sigh ...the deal last until money ... on virgin website...never lucky enough to get the best deal ... if i bought now i would have been able to receive the update and then follow Complete Newbie's Guide to rooting and flashing Evo V 4G ROMs/Kernels using fastboot instead of s-on, rooted, and get worse signal than my old Optimus V ...

Well this is a good thing and a bad thing. If I want to sell this phone I'll only get about 100 dollars for it but its good for consumers that can get it for less

It's only a special sale, it will go back yup to $200 or more shortly. $150 is not the normal price.

As for optimusv45's complaint about reception, that isn't entirely accurate. After doing the "fix everything", mine equaled the OV on reception and after putting in the latest PRI and radio from the Virgin update, my reception is better than the OV.

I'm still quite happy with my $275 device from launch day, if I had waited for the sale I would be 5 months behind the curve and instead of having the opportunity to work through issues most of them would be already solved for me.

This is exactly why I don't worry about the price of phones. In a couple months, it will change. In 3 or 4 months, it'll be half price because "the next big thing" will hit the market. And all this happens on a continuous cycle. It is like a dog chasing it's tail.

Default Re: EVO V 4G Price Reduced

Certain phones will be hitting price drops because they are either end of life or because an LTE device will be replacing it.

I still use my Evo V for a camera when I go somewhere new. I will always like the 3D...

You have to look at it as an ROI if switching from postpaid to prepaid. Buying at $150 for me means a 4 month ROI when the cost of the plans is factored in. The phone price affects the ROI, but there will always be some form of payoff.

Now that I'm prepaid already, there is no ROI justification for buying a new phone, so I'll probably continue with the trend of a $150 phone every 12-18 months. I'll be waiting out price drops on models moving forward. Maybe a Nexus 4 in 2014

Buddy, if you are referring ROI as Return on investment, you are being too vague for a third person to interpret. Maybe your return is your subjective utility function.

Anyways, I think virgin mobile is pushing this sale to get those people with $25 plan out of it to $35.

Picked one up. I usually wait 1 & 1/2 years and wait for price drops on older phones. Having a 4.3 inch phone is so awesome compared to a 3.2 inch V/samsung intercept .

$140 is dirt cheap for this phone, plus extra value is there because the devs have done so much work on it.

I suspect the industry is moving to offering more high end phones off contract. They will finance the purchase of a top of the line handset and sell the service for a more competitive rate.

This is my new strategy. Wait for a $300 phone to drop down to $150, then buy one every year. I don't care about cutting edge technology, I'm fine with 18 month old cutting edge technology. My next phone will hopefully be quad core... and I'll probably get it when Samsung has octal core phones for $200 on contract.

Well, so i called Virgin Mobile and the first CS agent said the phone was still under warranty and transferred me to, i guess, the claims department. She took down the MEID and said that a replacement phone will be sent out by FedEx and should arrive in 3-5 days.

Then I will mail back the broken phone. They did not mention anything about it being rooted or that if it is found to not be OEM fault, getting charged for it. So, unless HTC somehow objects to it (assuming that the phone model that old actually makes it back to HTC) I believe it is gonna be a freebie (in theory since I already replaced it today).

Looks like my daughter is getting a new phone for her birthday.

Has anyone ever heard about them coming after you for a rooted phone AFTER they already replaced it??

I actually am a lil surprised that VM did that since I had already switched to the new phone so technically that phone was no longer a concern to VM. I was expecting to be pushed off to HTC.

Surprisingly easy CS from VM when Ive had nothing but horrible CS with them before, mostly because of the outsourcing/broken english

Yeah, I guess it all depends on who you randomly get for CS. Like a shot in the dark. Always worth a try though when it comes to a free replacement

If the phone is under warranty, it's under warranty even if you've purchased five new phones already.

Virgin Mobile warranties their phones for one year. As you've discovered, they are very generous with warranty replacements. Just be sure to put tracking or delivery confirmation on the phone you send back. They may be good about replacing phones, but they aren't very good at keeping track of the ones that get sent back.

Wow, at that price, I might encourage my son to buy one as a media/game device, rather than the iPod Touch he's been contemplating. He loves the 3D camera on mine

I do wonder how someone has an ad for a sale not even going yet, if it pans out, great for consumers.

I am hoping the price in March is real, people who already paid $130 can go get a 30 day price match.

So let's say my phone turns a year old in a month (it actually turns a year on august, and u bought it from radioshack doesn't matter right?). So I feel like getting a replacement for my phone just so it looks like I never scratched it in the whole year. Would the warranty have another year added to it or would it still end on the same time?

Virgins replacement policy is that within the first 30 days you're entitled to a class a, which is basically a brand new phone that was never activated and has a one year warranty that starts from the date of activation, after that you are entitled to a class c, which is just the bare phone which comes with a 30 day warranty or the remainder of your original warranty, whichever is longer.

Mine was $300 (before taxes), I had to drive to a town 60 miles away and wait for them to pull it off the pallet. This was after spending almost a week calling around for it.

Early adopters pay more, it's how the game is played. While you paid more, you also got to enjoy it while the others were still goofing around on cheaper phones.

That's true. I have one of the Sprint branded ones. Mine was preordered from Radio Shack.
It was quite the fiasco with having to return my first one due to reboot/shut off issues.

While it's no longer my daily driver, I still keep it fully charged in my purse to catch my 3D moments.
