Hey! I'm going to be going to college this upcoming fall in Clemson, South Carolina and am looking at a cheap android cell phone option and Virgin Mobile and the LG Optimus V came up as a possible option. I am currently on an AT&T GoPhone plan and saw that they have the LG Thrive android phone but the data packages look ridiculous ($25 for 500 MB, $10 for 100 MB, $5 for 10 MB) while Virgin Mobile is unlimited for $25. A couple of questions though: 1. I've seen a lot of complaints about data outages/unreliable service from Virgin Mobile. Am I going to be ripping my hair off and spending 24/7 calling customer service? (aka how reliable is it?) And if anybody has any experience with using Virgin Mobile in upstate South Carolina, any comments would be great. The coverage map at my college area says "Best" on VirginMobile USA. Is the map accurate? 2. How much data am I going to need? I am on a college campus so there is wi-fi most of the time (not everywhere I go but most places). I check facebook, twitter, email and sometimes watch youtube videos. 3.Would it be better off to start on the AT&T GoPhone data plan and see how much data I actually use since AT&T has better coverage? or vice versa and start off with Virgin Mobile? What would you do in this situation? Thanks a lot for any comments!
