Default just ran over my triumph with the lawn mower, what to buy next?

well, my cheap $2.50 case failed me, the clip popped off while i was mowing, and i ran my triumph over with the lawn mower.

so the real question is to stay with the triumph or to switch? I have been perfectly happy with my triumph running miui. Actually i love my triumph with miui, but i know virgin mobile has some new htc phones with 4g running ice cream sandwich?

any one have the htc evo V? how does it compare to triumph? htc is a little cheaper now that its on sale.

Holly crap! You should see if they will cover it under the warranty :-) I would say checkout the evo. I would head over to the evo forums and see what Roms they offer and see what others think of the phone. If you opt to move make sure there is lots of Devs for the phone so you know they will keep up with it. If not you know what works and what you like :-)

I would also say to consider if you currently have a grandfathered plan you could probly get a new triumph and call vm and possible keep your grandfathered pricing

While(if currently under a grandfathered plan)switching to the evo would cause the price to increase


If your not under a grandfathered plan then I'd say why not upgrade especially if you can get it at a good price and since you clearly now have no other option lol apparently the triumph isn't compatible with lawnmower blades lol

Got the EVO V about two weeks ago, what I like compared to Triumph:

1. better battery life.
2. faster
3. ICS
4. instant GPS lock
5. 3D is a bonus

What I don't like:
1. no WiMAX coverage here! (San Diego)
2. can't keep my $25 plan. T_T

I recommend it, if you want to stay with VM. Another option is to switch to TMobile monthly 4G $30 plan. But I want to wait for new Nexus phone...

Lawn mower torture test...epic fail!!! Seriously though, my condolances- at least it died bravely in the line of duty. If you're staying with VM, the EVO 3D looks like the logical next step up- I think it's still on sale on the VM website for $239 too.

I think the only reason why I'm keeping my Triumph is $25 plan and this community. I really like the phone, the problem is I absolutely hate Virgin Mobile. If you are getting off Triumph and $25 plan I would just switch to T-Mobile's $30 plan. My brother has one and, oh boy, do I feel the speed differences!
I don't think Evo worth the money (whatever the price is + $35/month), especially if don't get 4G speeds in most of areas.

Good point- go get yourself a GSM Nexus or nice used S2 and then you're cooking with gas! Maybe used S3s will be cheap enough next year that I'll bail for Tmobile...

i have given some though to switching from virgin mobile, since there service is so spotty around here, I can drop down one town about 30 mins from here, and there is absolutely no service at all. They dont even sell virgin moble phones at radio shack because of the lack of service. but it really hasnt bother me to much because i carry a work phone all the time also, and every one knows if you cant reach me on my personal phone call my work phone.

t mobiles commercial is on all the time, but in small print i have noticed that its only 4g for the first 100mb, then you are throttled to 2g, 100mb is super small, i think my phone will hit that the first night, when it downloads my rss feeds!

it always seemed like t mobile was more a gimmick to me, than a good option, because it drops you down to 2g, i may be more willing to give it a try if they dropped you to 3g, but 2g way to slow.

but i will check out any way since you all are recommending it.

I dont really think anyone offers 4g service around here anyway.

Truthfully, if I switched to Tmobile, I'd probably go for their $50 a month 500 anytime plus 2GB full speed post-paid plan. It's more expensive, but still not too bad and you have the advantage of being able to roam- something you can't do on prepaid (at least not without modding the PRL & I don't dabble in that). I'm not sure about the details of the $30 a month plan some people talk about- maybe someone else can fill you in on that.

EDIT: So here's the deal with the $30 prepaid plan on Tmobile: you get only 100 minutes of talk time (period), but on the data side you get a whopping 5GB at 4G speed before you are throttled. So it really is a fantastic data plan, you'll just have to either make very few calls or go to using something like Google Voice & VOIP for the majority of your calls. Actually a pretty decent deal!

Lawnmower 1 Triumph 0, Not trying to make fun of your misfortune just trying to lighten the mood. I think the Triumph is a little high priced now compared to the Evo (sarcasm), but at least the Triumph has the Craptercept beat.

Same as Virgin, modifying your prl will not allow roaming, the tower has to authenticate your phone, if your meid isn't on the list no roaming allowed. That and all carrier's are cracking down on even legitimate roaming, if more than 20% of your minutes are spent roaming they politely ask you to go elsewhere because you've obviously chosen the wrong carrier for your area. The problem with T-MO's plans are there isn't really any throttling, once you get done with the 4g allotment you drop down to 2G Edge speed because they don't have a 3g network. If you think that Virgin's data speeds are slow try to remember back over 5 years ago when we were all on Edge.
