I bought this phone to replace my LG Optimus V on Virgin Mobile which had served me well for almost two years. One reason I made the switch to T-Mobile was because I was getting tired of Virgin Mobile’s slow network speed on Sprint’s network. I couldn't be happier!! With T-Mobile I have consistently gotten between 4 and 10 Mbps download speeds most places around the Albany, New York area. At my work which is approximately 25 miles north of Albany, where I was getting around 20-50kbps download speeds on Virgin Mobile 3G, I can now get 650-950Mbps download speeds in a semi rural area. I am very happy that I made the switch, and I am paying $30 per month for Unlimited data and messaging and 100 minutes of talk time. You can't beat it!!!
The phone itself is amazing! It can handle anything that you can throw at it with its 1.5Ghz dual-core processor from flash video to high intensity games and multitasking. I upgraded from Android 2.3.6 to Android 4.0.4 manually via Kies Air which was an upgrade released by Samsung. I immediately saw a huge improvement on battery life and I can easily make it through the day without recharging with moderate use. I would totally recommend this phone to anyone!! It's the best prepaid deal on the market right now in my opinion.
