    4. Cons: as mentioned by others, the battery life could be a bit better, but if you don't run a bunch of stuff and shut off wifi, GPS and anything else your not using, the battery is not all that bad.

    7. Started doing the GeoCaching thing the other day, and it works great for that. With all the Apps, there are almost limitless possibilities of that you can do with this phone. Currently I have a few apps on it for general offroading and geocaching, plus all the built in outdoors apps for star gazing, exercising, etc. Looking forward to everything else I can do with it.

    1 Carrier-Virgin Mobile
    2 Phone- LG Optimus V
    3 Pros- Cheep service. 25 bucks a month gets 300 minutes, unlimited texting and data (i.e. internet). pay as you go plan, so I'm not locked into the service for years before I can get a new phone or plan.
    4 Cons- No Flashplayer, but the new phone VM has does and there are plenty of apps where you don't even notice. It's still on the 3G network and that sometimes doesn't work great. (but that's with all 3G phones)
    5 Used most for- everything
    6 owned for six months (switched from Verizon)
    7 Don't understand how someone can pay 3 or 4 times as much for the same service I get.

    It has been about a year now that I have had my phone.

    I must say, I was impressed with it back when I got it, and it continues to impress me with how well it is built. I have tested this phone in just about every way you can think of. The only test it has not endured yet is to be immersed in water. The phone has been dropped, thrown, driven over, you name it. Hell my 2 year old had played with it and it is still in good condition. It has picked up a few dings and scratches, but still looks and operates just the same as the day I got it.

    I found Geocaching after getting the phone and on a few occasions, got into an area where there was no cell signal, the GPS worked flawlessly, or at least as well as one could expect for a dedicated GPS in a cell phone. I have recently started using some Bicycle apps on the phone as well and again, not a bad thing to say. Other reviews I have read have talked down about the GPS, my opinion is this: in the open I have been down to within 9 FEET of my actual spot even while moving, that will fluctuate when you get into the woods, the heavier the canopy the more its off, I have seen up to 30 METERS.

    I would highly recommended this phone to anyone who wants a smartphone and wants one that is tough to break. I got mine for free though this site: http://www.wirefly.com/?referringdomain=wirefly
