    Hey guys, a few questions(I searched another thread in the Triumph section and my questions weren't really answered.)

    I am thinking about switching from my current Samsung Galaxy Prevail over to the Motorola Triumph, which would be a huge switch considering it would also be switching my service from Boost to Virgin.

    Currently I have a Samsung Galaxy Prevail rooted, running Shabbymod 0.9 and using WiFi tether for my internet connection. Anyone know if the extra screen/flash support etc etc of the Triumph would be worth switching to? Will WiFi tether still work(that is a must, and I also read up on problems with the Antenna not receiving as good of a signal because it is weak, and that would be a dealbreaker because I live out in the middle of nowhere and with Boost and the Prevail, I get great service comparatively.

    Any help/input on this would be greatly appreciated.

    I have heard from people in my area (Bakersfield , Ca) ,that Virgins service is not that great . If I were you , I would talk to some people in your area and find out what kind of service they are getting with Virgin . The phone may have a few more bells and whistles but that doesn't mean a thing if your service sux . :D

    I agree, and my girlfriend is considering getting it as well, so I was thinking I would let her ruin her service(if it does suck here) first, and then if it turns out to be good then I would switch too.

    The main question I have to ask is possibly for people who own both, and it is if they think that excluding possible service issues, if the Triumph is a worthwhile upgrade from the Prevail. I am mainly interested because of the bigger screen/better camera.

    Thank you for the review, this is exactly the type of answer I was looking for but I need more reviews before I can compare.

    Anyone else? Someone suggest I flash an Evo, and honestly if I could get an Evo-SHIFT for a decent price, and figure out how to flash it to where I actually trusted myself, then I would probably do that.

    *EDIT* So guess what I just found out is illegal and pretty much a taboo to speak of? -_- Thanks for the suggestion but I would rather buy a phone and not have to worry about being arrested. That gave me a lot of hope too. :/
