    Today I made the decision to buy the galaxy s5 on VM. That means goodbye to my victory and to the awesome people that helped out in this community. Thanks to all the devs and people who were around to help at all times.
    specifically;

    If anyone else is going to the VM s5, I look forward to seeing you on that root forum! Y'all were awesome!:D

    Good luck bro! I finally switched to an s3 that I've had on standby for a while, but I still come here. I had the victory so long I have all the files and links to help ppl when I can.

    So now that you're switching to a premium phone are you concerned about the locked bootloader and inability to root/room the S5?

    Im going to stay on stock for a couple of months before rooting an romming so I can see all of what the stock rom has to offer. From what I can tell, there haven't been rooting issues outside of the AT&T and Verizon versions.

    Yeah, stock ROM on the s5 looks pretty sweet. And packed with features. I'm curious about the download booster. 4,g and WiFi simultaneously!

    I've tried the download booster and it is absolutely AMAZING. I try not to use it too much though because I dont want to go over the data limit.

    If anyone is looking for a cheap upgrade, Picking up the LG Volt is a very worthy upgrade over the Victory. I got it for my mom the other day, and it's night and day for her. Nice little phone. I play with a F6 and it's similar. LG has come a long way, and you have a removable battery and card slot. Thankfully they get it. It was just $120 on their site the other day. Great bang for the buck.
