Re: Motorola Triumph Pre-Order Best Buy
And VM's network is in high demand too, which they are having a tough time with. I tried out the OV for a month on a different phone number before deciding to port my ATT number 3 months later. I was even willing to pay the ETF, which was going to pay for itself in a couple of months in perceived savings. During the trial period of month 1, I was averaging 600-800 mbps downloads with a good data connection. Once I decided to port over (I had a 3 month window where my VM account was inactive), my average dropped to 200 mbps and I had frequent data outages. This was at the end of the $129 sale for the OV, so a lot of users were switching over. VM admitted on the phone at least once that they were having problems keeping up with new users. I switched back to ATT simply because the cost of saving $35 a month (on the ATT family plan - still had to have one phone that would get a signal in rural areas) was not worth it to me if the network was unreliable, and the fact that I used a lot more than 300 minutes in a month (which moving to the $40/ month plan made the savings even less). I even tried GrooveIP to get around the minutes issue, but because the network was so slow, I had major issues making calls over VOIP. I am more than willing to try out the Triumph and VM again to see if the network has improved, but I will sit back for now and see how it works out.
