Even better than buying a phone from Voyager Mobile is to go to ebay and purchase a used or new Sprint android phone, with a clean ESN#, and activate it thru voyager. Call or e-mail them first to check which phones can be brought. No Blackberry, no apple, and no Galaxy S4. Most Androids are eligible though.
That same optimus S could be had for a fraction of what Voyager is charging to buy one or you could get a much nicer phone for the same $149. They don't change the software on the device in any way and they don't throttle! Anything you could do with the optimus S on sprint you can do on Voyager. There is one exception. They will not let you roam off of sprint.
I've been very pleased with Voyager. I bought a used HTC EVO 4G LTE from ebay and brought it over to Voyager. No throttling, full LTE, no issues.
To set your expectations: Don't expect to reach a live person out side of normal business hours. During business hours, however, do expect a live person (no phone tree garbage). I have, when using their e-mail support, had success with a quick email response after hours.
When I activated my EVO LTE over the phone with them, data did not activate right away, data only began working once I was in a wifi area (not sure why). The phone did make calls right a way though.
Definitely, loving Voyager. Been with them a few months now. No worries about how many minutes, texts, or data I'm using. No throttling, no weirdness. Its been awesome!
