Radio Shack has the HTC One V for Virgin Mobile for $49.99 this week (Starting 12/23).
If you spend $50 or more you get $10 back in coupons, so I'm sure you can find a cheap filler to make this sweeter.

They also have the Samsung Galaxy S2 for VM for $299.99

Re the $10 "coupon" - is that $10 cash back or $10 off a future purchase? The RS site is not really clear, just says you will get an email "coupon" in 7 days. So??
i got in on this a month ago.
i received no notice of qualifying for the coupon. i got a $10 off $10 emailed about 7 days later. i had one month to use it before it expired.
it has an in-store barcode and an online code.

Trying to figure out what would be wothwhile to use the $10 on @ RS? I pretty much never set foot or look online at them.

Do you like the phone??

That's some positive news. How hard was it to add a custom ROM? Is this your primary phone, or just a wifi/iPod Touch alternate?

I will add, texting on this phone isn't great. Since it's a skinny phone, if you've got fat fingers, it's not going to improve anything. I did find the accuracy when pecking is pretty good though - better than my older Optimus V. But not as easy as the larger Triumph.

This was one of my best buys this season. Pondering picking up another one. Daughter has a Triumph, but loves it. Not sure if she'd appreciate it, but if her Triumph gets lost, it's a cheap back up.
Wifi/iPod Touch alternative.

As for fat fingers...use a different keyboard. The stock HTC one is garbage.
I like this one (because I use it on my Nexus 4)

Current understanding is grandfathered $25 plan will only work on VM phones still on Android 2.x - so the newest phone with this is the LG Optimus Elite. The HTC One V, Samsung Galaxy Reverb, HTC Evo etc won't work on grandfathering.

Can you provide us a proof from Radio shack that this is a real deal?

Also, I would just like to comment that the Samsung Galaxy S2 I got today was a real upgrade from the HTC One V, no lag at all, smooth, bigger screen, and I'm loving the features. Worth $329, but I traded it for my credits, so I got it with no extra cost at my end, and have $55 in the end. Happy shopping!

Smartphones only work on the Beyond Talk plans. This phone requires $35 plan and up. Phones that were introduced before May 2012 will work if you have a granfathered $25 plan like the Optimus V/Slider, etc. See Howardforum VM threads for details.

If this is true then you can buy it and flash it over to page plus for extremely cheap prepaid service. I love mine and using it as a home phone VOIP along with page plus when not within wifi reception.
