    I've noticed that this phone sometimes has realllllly bad response time regarding texting. For example, today I sent myself a text.... Didn't get it back for 5 minutes.

    Sometimes I'll get like, 6 texts in a row from a bunch of people, some saying that they texted me a long time ago and I didn't reply, but I would just be getting the messages

    Also, sometimes when I try to make an outbound call, it'll seem like it's trying to connect but nothing happens.... Then after a bit it says something about signal? (even though I have full bars)

    anyone else having these issues? And if so, do you know know any any ways to fix it? I've called support, reset my phone, etc etc etc

    That's a Virgin Mobile issue. It happened on the Triumph and OV fairly regularly for me.

    It happens to me every day. For me, it permenent until I reboot my phone. It's pretty annoying. I'm not sure if it's the network or just the way the phone is though. Not sure if I should try to return or not. Sprint has a tower located right near my house so it has nothing to do with signal strength. My Optimus V and my Triumph never would do that.

    He's right. That is a network based issue.

    I have a similar issue: Even with my old Samsung Intercept, I could always send picture MMS', but I would always lag when receiving them. I dont mean like 5 minutes lag, I would get them 5 DAYS later.
    It would always say "Failed to download MMS" so I would go on with my life and about 5 days later I would have them.
    That's network based. At least in my area. It's frustrating. But I'll live.
