Default prevail stock os vs mod roms

How smooth is the prevail os without custom rom? I see a lot of people say there prevail freeze alot on calls or navigating the UI. Is this just a select few with bad phone or is it the phone? I mainly see shabby mod on forums as main mod rom for prevail. Do shabby mod freeze or is it smooth like phone should be? What other rom besides shabby are for prevail? I only seen like one other besides shabby mod in forums. Any 2.3 gingerbread rom for prevail? Can anyone shed any light on this freezing problem for me I plan on getting the phone just don't want one that freeze as a normal part of operation would rather pay more for another phone if that's the case I see people have got netflix running on prevail been waiting on that.

Quick rundown. the stock rom has laggy issues, never seen true freezing, but lag yes.

Shabbymod solves that in 99.9% of cases, the few that still have trouble are probably hardware issues.

2.3 has not been made for the prevail. Right now we just got a custom recovery that would allow a true flash to a rom, as of yet no one has worked on porting gingerbread because there was never a way to put it on. Now that there is it can get worked on if someone wants to that is.
