My GPS takes at least 10 minutes to find itself each time. And you must be lucky with 4G, if you Google it, seems like everyone has that problem.
I bought it when Virgin dropped the price on their website few days ago. Like the phone
but BEWARE . There is one problem with phone where it goes into a state where you cannot make /receive calls. Have to do a hard reboot. This happens when you switch from wifi to 3G or something like that... Happened to me 4 times in lat 3 weeks. Contacted Virgin and they say they are not aware of this problem.
Did google and there are lot of people reporting similar issue.
So guys, if you want to hold off do that... Wait for a better phone. I am still debating whether to return the phone since i am in 30 days period. Only thing is that it will be difficult to go back to Optimus v
I've heard rumors that there's firmware differences between the VM Evo V phones that are branded Sprint and those that are branded generic HTC. I found less people complaining abuot the Call/txt issues with the generic HTC branded ones, so I price matched to Best Buy who had newer stock than Radio Shack, got my reward zone points, and got a generic branded phone.
So far, so good. Some issues with 4G connecting but not responding, but I've only tried it twice so I'm not going to rule out that it could be a fluke. I upgraded from a Triumph and it's a night and day difference so far (as it was when I upgraded from that terrible Optimus V to the Triumph). No random reboots, none of the data connectivity and GPS issues, fairly sharp camera, bright screen, no having to manually kill tasks (like Facebook) because they can't connect to data. Plus, the phone is solid and not cheap like the Triumph (and it's back panel that won't stay on).
Basically, if you're looking for a cut rate phone plan, I can't think of a better option than the Evo V on Virgin. Everything just works, and works smooth at that. Sure, the new phones are twice as fast...but when you're having no lag with applications, why do you need anything more? The only thing keeping this phone from being just as good (from a usability perspective) as the big boys on the market is the lack of an OLED and the camera could be a bit better. And no Jellybean (yet).
