Hi all, I have a few questions about the Optimus V and Virgin Mobile in general... seen a couple posts about VM but they are quite old and figured maybe something changed... I'm about an hour south of Chicago, as far as Virgin Mobile is concern, how is the service as compared to Verizon? Both in Voice and Data? I do not know anyone that uses Virgin Mobile so it's hard for me to test it out. Seeing as though Virgin Mobiles plans have Unlimited Data... it is truly "Unlimited"? Or do they slow it down at a certain GB? I am looking to tether this Optimus on my Tablet and Laptop so that I can be online anywhere... (on my Droid X through VZ, I have to ROOT the phone in order to do this otherwise VZ will charge $$$ for doing this) Do you need to ROOT the Optimus or no? Also, about the Optimus, I know the keyboard is small when vertical, but if you turn the phone horizontal, will the keyboard switch to a large horizontal view? I have not been able to find an answer to this. Thanks all for the help, I appreciate it.
