Do I have to activate it? Can I just use it with free WiFi hotspots to check e-mail and such?

Even with a $10 increase per month, I'm still getting a better deal than most carriers and none of the headaches associated with the one I have now. The 3G is still better than what I got on my old slider with vm. I wanted a 4G steal this year but if it still looks like One V is the only one on sale come tomorrow, I'll probably end up getting it. I'm just going to do some research into battery life and any quirks people have noticed with it. Smilie

Hmm... already ordered a Reverb for $100...

looks like the reverb is a better phone what do you think?

to me it is worth the extra money to get a larger screen , faster cpu, more ram, front camera,

I heard there is a way to get $5 off each month by autopaying.
Is that true? How do you do that? Thanks

I really want to get this just so I can use Bluetooth, but don't want to give up the $25/month plan.

My Triumph's Bluetooth doesn't work and Motorola is denying that there's an issue with the phone, just that my laptop, headset, and car all have faulty Bluetooth, even though all 3 work with other BT devices.

Well the specs are definitely better. 1.4 ghz processor on the Reverb vs. a 1 ghz on the HTC One. The screen size is also bigger, but it's the same resolution so less DPI.

My wife has the HTC One and it's definitely a good phone... a steal at $50. Gonna have to think this over.

Anyone ever return a phone to VM that you ordered from their site?

Take advantage of the 30 day money back guarantee. You can send them the phone back for a refund!

Just tell them it reboots all of the time or whatever. The failure rate is so high on the Triumph....they won't care. They'll believe whatever you tell them because in general, the Triumph is totally unreliable.

I RMA'd my wife's Triumph 4 times through them. Each one with a different problem (reboots, charging port issues, awful touch screen, crackly ear speaker). I did finally get a good one (which I ebay'd since the wife had given up already and gotten an Evo 4G).

Still, I appreciated how helpful the social media C.S. was.

Stock for stock the reverb is definitely better. Also for my uses (i.e. Skype) the front facing camera is a must have.

I'm guessing the $50 will start tomorrow, since the deal with $150 will end today.

Can you use this phone on the grandfathered $25 plan? I have a triumph and I hate it so, so much. Have all these issues and they won't give me another refurb after just getting a refurb in late August. Don't understand why they don't give you any kind of warranty on refurb.

I had a ton of issues with my Triumph back in the day (almost a year ago?). I sent the first one back for not working in some annoying way, and I've been reasonably satisfied with my second. Aside from the soft keys intermittently not working for a few seconds, I've had no issues with it.

Just use MIUI [androidforums.com]. A much nicer looking and quicker rom than whatever is stock. I would never, ever wish a stock Triumph upon my worst enemies. Miui makes all the difference in the world. Additionally, I'm able to set my phone up as a hotspot for my laptop. Big plus. Really, the improvements are innumerable.

If anyone wants to give their triumph one final chance, I can help you out with custom roms.
