    Re: LG Rumor Touch -or- BLack Berry Curve 8530?

    they might have recently made the $10 more a month for Blackberries optional to keep customers from switching. ?
    IDK i will check next time I activate a BlackBerry but Im 100% sure that boost is not optional and since boost virgin and sprint are pretty much all the same company i doubt theyve changed their BlackBerry policy like i said if you do activate or opt out of the $10 charge i will be impressed please keep me updated....I called vm dealer support and they said in no case is it an option.
    yeah but that's probably for a contract plan with the benefit of it being one can get a phone that would cost $500 on a non contract plan for like $150 usually i guess.
    No contract, thats the virgin mobile 300 min unlimited data and text plan for blackberries.

    i actually chose the rumor touch to save like $45, money is tight and the keyboard is alot easier to use than blackberrie's. If i chose the blackberry, i'd be tempted to spend 25$ more for the intercept android with 3.15 mp and a better keyboard than rumor touch. I hope the touch screen doesn't go bad and will have to remove the screen protector or look at fingerprints instead of a clea video/game. I looked up 'best apps" and don't want 99% of em. i do like the one where if the phone is lost, one can use a computer to find the gps and put a lock on everything. i can use shoutcast etc instead of pandora app to stream music. not sure if rumor touch has a place to officially buy games, there are workaround tutorials i see on youtube where one must download files to computer 1st then usb phone to computer- pretty sure that's illegal though so i won't.
    all 3 phones are bargains. i paid $105 for my verizon flip that has like nothing- 1mp camera that wouldn't even load up after about a year, no usb so can't save pics, and that's about all the phone had plus calculator, calender, alarm, etc but like every phone has those.
    take care

    Ya i thought you might roll with the touch it was a good deal we sell them for $150 the touch screens on them are pretty good better than most but not as good as like an i1 or an intercept but enjoy the phone.

    Biggz, Just to clarify/fix the thread.


    you said: "$35 dollars is not bad for unlimited data and text some companies charge$20 to $40 just for unlimited data packages." I assume this means as an add-on to any plan that has limited/no data/web

    I said: "yeah but that's probably for a contract plan with the benefit of it being one can get a phone that would cost $500 on a non contract plan for like $150 usually i guess." because that is a worse plan than "beyond talk" UNLESS more than 300 mins is a must.

    you said: "No contract, thats the virgin mobile 300 min unlimited data and text plan for blackberries." Which IS the "beyond talk" we've been discussing that's $25

    (or $35 if customer service lied to me when they said: Email quote: "The $10 Blackberry's Add On charge is optional. If you do not pay the extra $10 you won't be able to use Blackberry applications or access the Blackberry application world but you will still have access to all the web services such as non-blackberry email")

    for unlimited everything (DATA) and 300 mins. but still if BBerry MUST pay $10 a month extra, it's $35, and that's not extra $20 to $40 just for unlimited data like you said.

    The browser of 8530 is nearly identical to the one present on the Tour, as is much of the rest of the OS. The addition of WiFi, however, is a welcome one. The lack of 802.11 in the original Tour is still something we're appalled by, but we're glad to see Verizon (and Sprint) coming through on their promises to include the requisite radios on all smartphones moving forward.

    blah,
    in case any1's wondering bout the $25 a month virgin phones, i've had the rumor touch a little while and don't like it that much and rather got the samsung intercept for $50 more or the lg optimus because rumor touch not being a smart phone doesnt let a lot work on the phone. it can't stream music at all even from the link on virgin mobile they have specifically for cells. it can't stream music in any form flash player or anything i tried lotsa different sites. it can't download anyfiles except pictures but i did get a tiny 30 second or so mp3 to play from a link but can't download it. the youtube capabilite is just basic- it starts from the beginning of video and you cant ff or rew or skip ahead and when the vids over, the phone goes back to the main menu and you gotta go all the way back 2 utube to watch another one. youtube skips a lot even with full bars signal. there are some annoying things like alarm can only be set with touch screen and it's hit or miss to get it to move one minute at a time, pain in the arse. the games available are very basic like the ones on a $40 flip phone. the vibrate on max for calls is so weak, i didn't feel it and missed calls when i couldnt hear it cause i had headphones on with my ipod. twice the price but still only $200 i'll get intercept andoid or optimus worth it to not miss the vibrate on calls and get radiation tumors from streaming internet radio in the car or wherever.
