Not sure if this has been noted already, but the CSRs claim of this having a $100 dollar discount and being $49.99 is not consistent. If this phone has a $100 discount, that will make it $99.99, not $49.99. My money is on a $99.99 price Frown

Does this info seem legit? VM CSR's seem to give a lot of inaccurate info. Some earlier posters had screen shots of chats with CSRs, in which they wrongly stated that there would be no black friday sales (Evo dropped to $149).

Also, the info in this thread seems to contradict VM's official twitter feed. On the other hand, I suppose that tweet is full of questionable syntax and is open to interpretation.

Like many others, i've got my fingers and toes crossed for an S2 sale. Evo at $150 isn't a bad back up plan.

What I'm really hoping is that the Galaxy S II or iPhones go on sale. If the SII hits $200, I'll likely spring for that. An iPhone 4s at $350? Definitely would buy it. That's all wishful thinking though. There's no way Virgin Mobile would lower the iPhone prices that much.
Target has been selling the iphone 4s since Thursday for $449 and giving a $100 gift card = $349. Ended yesterday.

I just ordered the $30 Kyocera Rise (currently have the POS Samsung Intercept). Might have to return it though for this.
I got the 30$ Kyocera Rise and it's awesome! It's super fast and the sliding keyboard is awesome. I had both the Evo 3D but the battery was not good on that, even with extended... I also had the Samsung Intercept, which is ok once you ROM it, there are no roms that I know for the Rise, but so far I've loaded like 30-40 apps and it's still chugging along, I use it with Talkatone. I will also buy this to give either the Rise or the One V to my mom though, such a good deal, now I've to sell the BestBuy Optimus Elite... 'Frown.

I would rather wait for a sale on the htc evo v (1.2ghz dual core 1gb ram) rather than this. The one V has a bigger screen and is little faster than my optimus V but same ram 512mb. Also, havent looked up how easy to root the HTC phone but I have a htc flyer rooted with custom rom so I assume its just as easy.

Hmmmm, according to their Twitter...

"#cybermonday from VMU #Galaxy Reverb $100 off $149.99 -- HTCOneV $99 - #payLo Montage 50% off $24.99 - 3G/4G OverdrivePro $50 off $69.99"

Would be nice to see a $49.99 price though but I think it will be $99.99. Would be great to get more confirmation on this.

Actually talked to the VM agent, and she said that it will be $100 off today $50 discount off. So it's ($149 - $100 = $49). And I actually asked her, will it be $100 off $199 or $159. And that's the answer. It might change..don't be surprised since it is the most popular cellphones in VM. And for the time, it is unknown as this time.

I'm betting it's 100 off the total price which would make it 99.99.

Would you say this is a big improvement over a LG Rumor Touch slider? I'm on the old grandfather plan at $25 and I don't mind the $10 increase if all I'm paying is $50 for this. At the same time, I read up that the One V is made of aluminum and gorilla glass in one of the links here.. Sounds highly durable and I put my slider through hell from two moves, drops and constant travel. It makes it sound like the One V is a capable replacement but now that most of you made a point about the 4G and the Evo being faster, I'm divided on which to purchase. In the end I'm still seeing a $10 monthly increase but it's a matter of how much I'm willing to put down for a phone up front.

Any advice?

I've read that people have issues with texting/calls with the Evo V. Something about a radio or antenna error or something.

That's the main reason I think I'm gonna stick with a Reverb for $100.
I get that error almost every day on my Eco v 3d. It does it when it will not send a text. Says radio interface error. It also reboots all the time for no reason.

Yeah, that's what I thought; it didn't make sense to me. I'm guessing it's going to be $99.99 according to logic and the twitter. I'm fine with the Optimus Elite, it's just that Bestbuy is taking forever to ship!

I think last year they made all of their phones half off for the day. No way of knowing if that happens again but certainly something to look out for. Was able to flip one on EBay easily.

The LG Rumor Touch isn't even an android phone. Its more of a regular phone with some smart capabilities. The difference is night and day. In both hardware and software.
