    Triumph overclocked to 1.6 and having MIUI feels like a massive upgrade from the Optimus which was running BACKside IHO and clocked at 748..

    Samsung intercept
    Motorola Triumph (actually got it two days before release due to convincing a new employee at best buy;) )

    Triumph running at a reasonable 1.2ghz with cyanogenmod. I'm gonna keep this phone for at least a year. especially once i get ICS running on it.

    And I agree. My triumph was a MASSIVE upgrade form my intercept. even stock before i rooted. I am extremely pleased with my investment. I'd say to anyone out there that the extra money for the phone is definitely worth it.

    Well I'm no longer with them but I had, in order.
    Rated 1-10, 10 being the best.

    Samsung Intercept. 2
    LG Optimus V 9
    Motorola Triumph 1
    LG Optimus V 9

    In the end I could not get past VM selling the Triumph which in my opinion was a hi priced brick.
    It started out fine, but avalanched in to the biggest PITA of a phone I have ever owned. VM lost me as a customer when they would not refund or exchange the phone.
    Yes I bought another OV after the MT, I like VM service, never had much problems with them. But even though I was back with a OV and it was working perfectly, the whole reaming with the MT just kept on and I left them.
    I miss my old number, and the service was decent, but if VM is going to sell trash for 300.00 and call it gold, they need to back it as though it were gold, and they did not.

    It's not that VM calling it gold it's the countless users who have it in their mind that the truimph is as good as more modern smartphones,when the realists no better,i switched because i wanted a better phone with far superior service,and i can say i got both,but it comes at a price,not once since i have had Verizon and the HTC rezound have i had pull the battery,have a GPS lock issue,have to install a custom Rom,to fix things that Motorala or Huwaii should have fixed before selling it,i have a total of 36 gb of space on the rezound i never will have to worry about low space messages,failed market apps and updates installing.oh and never had a data issue or had to use the Airplane trick to get it to switch from 1x back to 3g.

    All of that matters not. If VM customers wanted to be with Verizon, that's where we'd be. The majority of us know what we're getting with VM. We know we're with a lower end mobile carrier. We know we have lower end phones.

    There. Now you no longer have to tell us anymore.

    lol you tell 'em :)

    So last night I almost convinced myself to switch to boost because I want the LG marquee sooooo freaking badly. I was telling myself that the shrinkage would make t the initial 55 a month ok, but then I realized that it's over a fairly long period of time that it happens and that kept me with VM. Not saying that's a bad plan, but I don't like that you're forced to that single one.

    So I'm staying with virgin, although I'm about 90% sure I'm getting the triumph in a month or so, despite lots of bad reviews.

    /puts hands on hips and taps foot..

    Um, no. You can't do that. Cuz that'd mean you wouldn't be posting in the OpV forums anymore, and we simply can't have that now can we. :(

    On a more serious note though.. gotta do what ya gotta do. At least we'll still see you in the VM forums. :D

    1. Optimus V, purchased a couple days before the official release for $150 at Target, running CM7.

    2. Triumph, but only because it was on sale for $120 direct from VM on Cyber Monday, still stock for now.

    I wish I could combine the best features of both into one phone.

    PS: I also got 2 other people interested in the Optimus V after they saw/used mine. Fortunately they also got theirs back when it was $25/mo.
