    Happy holidays everyone...

    Well, I gave VM 10 months, and 6 months of waiting for them (and/or Motorola) to sh*t or get off the pot to fix the phone issues (and their data service to be quite honest)....

    For the same monthly price, I'm going to switch to MetroPCS and on their 4G network. I've read their data streams are good and stable, not to mention the LG Esteem is a good phone. No issues with GPS, erratic data streams, etc.

    I have a Rocketfish case for my phone, and the Best Buy PRP plan that's transferrable to the new owner. I even still have the box. (and the charger of course).... The phone is rooted and has the boot loader prog in it.. I will do a factory reset on it too.
    If anyone is interested, PM me. I haven't listed a price but I'd like to walk away with $175....

    Thanks for all the good reads, the help threads, the dev's hard work, etc.

  2. you should check your coverage and if its not good you should have returned the phone asap and went with another carrier. I get absolutely got awful AT&T service here, and you know what I did? I left em :D

    Metro has ok phones now, but definately see if the network is good where you are, becuase over here they are still building it and everyone I know who has a MetroPCS 4G phone only gets 1x data except for certain areas.

    as far as i know, metro doesnt have 3G data except for very limited areas. so you either have 4G or 1x, and they are still building their 4G network. but good luck on there.

    as for the Triumph, wait until the holiday deals are over, so the price is higher in the stores, thats when its a good time to sell privately.

    no one will pay 175 for yours if they can get it for 149 on the website, new.

    also, accessories DO NOT matter. they dont increase the price. you can include them but dont try to upsell. although you MAY get lucky and sell to someone who thinks its a deal, but then youll just be kind of an a hole.

    also, craigslist is a great phone to sell phones. make sure you put the stocck rom back on (cm7 or miui cant be activated, so the next user will be frustrated.)

    also, TELL THE NEXT USER that when they activate the phone, they absolutely have to call virgin mobile customer support to change the MSID from within the phone, this can only be done from the stock rom and HAS to be done before they can use it, and it can only be done manually, the activate app wont do it.

    Wait wait shmackshmack I can still get one for 150? I was trying to get one for my girlfriend. Wouldn't mind getting a used one for 175 though if they're not 150. So, compulady you still interested in selling the phone.

  4. hmm, i dont know. seems like its back at the normal price now, i guess I havent checked the prices in awhile.

    Oops, sorry- didn't get the notification. Yes, I am, but someone chimed in this thread that they'll sell theirs for $140..

    Still, mine has the BB replacement warranty for two yrs. lol

    Nah, seriously tho, I sold it, but then the interested party poofed, so it's still up for grabs.

    ETA- I'm also selling my RF-1100 Shoei helmet (size small) if there's other sportbike riders here, lol.... ;-)

    vm rep says it takes 6-7 weeks for the refund process to complete. Is this true?

    @ Raptor: Yes, I am equipped with an innie. lol
    I had a 2006 F4i as my second bike. She's a good and solid bike. Plenty capable of doing 150 should you feel the need. ;-)

    @hfl12: refund from VM for what? Are you referring to the 30-day window after purchasing the phone initially from VM themselves? I'd create a new thread if you have questions regarding that.

    Happy Friday, folks!

    Yeah...if you are lucky. A year ago I bought a Optimus-V from VM online, it was a piece of junk, returned it and got an endless run-a-round from VM. Lucky for me, I paid using PayPal...so I filed a claim and had my refund in less than 2 weeks.

    VM's plan pricing is reasonable, but the on-line and telephone customer service really sucks!:mad:

    Good luck....I wish you well.

    Thanks.. The lovely image requirements outside of the subject matter are little nuts for me, but thanks for the tip for when I make it official.... I mean "officially" official.. :)
