2) Is Chrome stable on any ROM for this phone? Chrome is chock full of visual artifacts on any ROM I try (tried stock, Unlocked Potential, CM10, CM10.1, MIUI JB, only build I haven't tried is MIUI ICS). Does anyone know a fix for this?
1.) Well a whole bunch of us switched from virgin to T-Mobile. The data speed is HUGELY faster. I decided to go with an unlocked HTC amaze which has great specs and is a bit better than this phone. You can just wait for a new nexus but that will take a while for you to get it even after it comes out.
So far I have had no data dropouts and have hspa+ (t-mobile "4g" technically 3g but still a lot faster than wimax.) You should check out apps like carrier coverage or sensorly to find if T-Mobile has good coverage in your city.
2.) If you're talking about chrome on the nexus it definitely should not be having what I like to call epilepsy problems. If that phone does then I'm dissapointed with Google lol. On the evo v/3d it just goes crazy and I tried it on a bunch of roms and didn't find a fix.
So far T-Mobile is way better than virgin and the right plan to get is the 30$ plan with 100 minutes unlimited text and data up to 5gb until a throttle. You won't reach 5gb unless you're downloading huge files or YouTube. After the minutes are up you can talk with 10 cents a minute or just use groove ip with Google voice. I don't talk a lot so this plan is awesome for me.
Use this if you want a dropbox account. We will both get extra storage if you use it while registering.
