    Hi,
    About three weeks ago I got my first smartphone, LG Optimus V.
    I opted for the $45 per month plan and now realize that I'll never use up all those 1200 minutes. I've only used up 120 at this point.
    So I want to change to the $35 per month plan.
    Is there a best time to do this?
    Should I make the change now or wait til just before or just after my next $45 is due.
    Their website says: You will be charged on 09/15/11

    I would want to avoid any penalties etc. for changing. So could someone advise when would be the best time to change my plan?

    TIA

    I agree with gadgetmonster... those suggestions seem like the most reasonable thing to do. ;)

    Edit: Totally off-topic, but you can remove the (virgin mobile) from your device description if you wanted. The V in Optimus V means Virgin Mobile. ;)

    The V, S, and U look pretty much identical (there may be small spec differences). But the C and the M look nothing like them. I think there's one or two more but I can't recall offhand what their letters are.

    LG Optimus V = Virgin Mobile
    LG Optimus S = Sprint
    LG Optimus U = U.S. Cellular
    LG Optimus C = Cricket Wireless
    LG Optimus M = MetroPCS

    Both Verizon and AT&T have an Optimus but it is not called an Optimus on either, I don't recall what their model names are.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I'll start calling my Optimus V an Optimus and I'll change my plan on Sept. 14th.

    Verizon's is called the LG Vortex, and the ones from AT&T are the LG Thrive and the LG Phoenix.

    Once you get away from the V, S, and U though, the phones begin to look a lot different. Personally, I love the sleek look of those three. The buttons on the other ones look, well, icky lol.
