    Hey everyone. Just thought I would ask what you guys think about this deal some stupid kid at my school offered me. He will pay me 450$ cash for my motorola triumph. Now here are my options

    1) Take the money and go buy another triumph

    2) Take the money, go buy an intercept or optimus, and save for optimus black

    3) Dont accept

    What do you guys think?

    Hahaha, I would take it in a heart beat! This is what I would do. Take the $450; use that money to buy myself an unlocked Windows Phone ~$300; and go with the T-mobile $50 4G Plan Prepaid. WIN!

    TOTAL: $100 profit after buying a new phone and plan. ^_^

    Kenster :D

    #3, and in addition - you tell the "stupid kid" to purchase one off Amazon or eBay new for $260, and then you contemplate how your good deed is more self-respecting than taking advantage of someone else's stupidity, ignorance, or lack of awareness.

    Pay it forward.

    Why wouldn't you do this, someone is offering to pay you $150 over retail price. All you have to do is sell it and go buy another one. Seems like a simple answer to me.

    I read all the warnings and got one anyway. Got my RMA and now returning for a refund.

    Wish it didn't have GPS/Signal issues... Too critical to ignore.

    My wife's Optimus V gets great signals side by side. (half the cost)

    Yeah but if the triumph is showing 1 bar(note it only has four) that an equivalent of up to 2 bars on the intercept or triumph(they have 6 bars).

    I wouldn't do it cause karma will get you, you shouldn't rip someone off that bad, and yeah don't even think of a windows phone they are junk dude I mean come on this is an android forum :)

    Now as far as the gps and stuff, yeah it deos suck on the triumph, but whatever I didnt buy it for a navigation unit, I bought it cause its an awesome phone. I mean nowhere else will you pay as little as we do and have a phone with the new generation snapdragon chips(thats why some snap dragon chips like in the xperia can only overclock up to 1400 and thats pushing it) but ours will go to 1900 no problems and probably higher. Plus the ram is actually really fast and so is the nand memory chip on it.

    Say what you want about the triumph, but for 300 dollars no contract you will never find a vanilla android phone as unlocked and open as this phone with the specs it has. And i'm willing to bet the optimus black will be at least 350, while it may be a better phone in the end i am happy with the triumph!
