    Getting my 5 month old OV ready to sell.
    Expect about $20.
    They have taken a sharp dive in price due to the new phones.

    I don't see why it wouldn't have it, although face unlock is not really useful.

    After doing a lot of reading up on both Howard Forums and XDA, it generally seems like the Galaxy Nexus owners are happy with Straight Talk, even in light of the "invisible data cap" fiasco. Plus, I use WIFI 80-90% of the time and barely even use 10mb of data per day when off WIFI. If I was someone who relied on data more, I wouldn't even think of Straight Talk, but I have WIFI at both home and work and my two best friends always let me connect to their WIFI when I'm at their house.
    Good point but no wifi here.. 100% 3G.. T-Mobile has 4G here but no handsets I want yet.. For $100's less than the contract handsets I'll wait on the Evo V w / VM than the most cutting edge 4G handset out there today.. I't's just a better tested handset and most of the old bugs are worked out imo. The slimmer w/ smaller batteries today's handsets get,, the less I like them.. The Evo V is the best robust old guard handset out there that's still got game on pre paid vs contract imo.. Well then there's the Boost offering but..

    Seems a wifi grid would be easier to build than a 4G array out in my area.. But I digress.. Mall has open wifi here.. Just no good at home.. Dang Wep lol..

    Wifi has terrible penetration, Wimax is better, but it too has penetration issues.
    Yes you can ramp up the power but only so much.

    Wifi is the same frequency as water and won't penetrate it, trees, rain, water pipes, etc.. all soak up wifi like a sponge.

    I wouldnt really use it either but its a cool feature to have.
    Also i asked this because i heard the face unlock was only for the nexus. But since this is stock ICS it might be different

    yes. for example if you have the optimus with the 25 plan and you want to upgrade to a 4g phone like the EVO then you would have to go to new cheap plan which is the 35. In other words you cant grandfather it... however im not sure if this applies to 3g phones like the triumph or the optimus elite... anyone?

    At the bottom are the phones you can activate and still keep your plan. It's direct from the VM website FAQ.

    You can switch to the Chaser and anything older and remain grandfathered. As of today, the Elite and anything newer will require a plan change.

    Pretty much.

    Pick your poison...
    A slower but fantastic working phone that does everything, or something faster with bigger screen that has issues. That is your choice.

    Even better now, if you break your OV, you can get another for CHEAP!!!

    Slider is a slightly faster, more expensive OV, but also thicker due to the keyboard.
    Triumph, the phone itself is poorly made, which manifests itself in the poor GPS, among other things.

    The Evo is on the VMU web site now. So unless stores had it yesterday (or before that) they won't be getting it early.

    Yep that's what I'm hoping!! Makes sense if start shipping date is the same on all orders.. Pre orders are good but brick fronts are getting a head start as it should sell out quick in cities but not here and I hope that would confirm it.. 3-5 ground yep Thursday sweet.. Should have it by the next Thurs if shipping is a brewhaha to the less fortunate areas.. This means pre-orders could show up a tad early with any luck.. No one is seeing any tracking info are they??

    This is honestly crazy. I'm not arguing with you that the prices will drop, it's just crazy how much technology you can get for the price! A phone, camera, GPS, clock radio, and netbook all in one! O.O

    It's just like, wowww... Never would've thought I saw a day when so much tech sells for so little money!

    This is why so many have ended up as media players.
    Buy one for $20-$40 and put the biggest sdcard you can, and it's FAR cheaper than an Ipod.
