This will work great until you can afford a new one

Summary: Bought this because my 4G committed suicide after the warranty but before the upgrade. It was delivered quickly, in new packaging, just as advertised. Took maybe 10 minutes for Verizon to activate it (you might need to do in person, I could not do over the phone), a couple updates and it's working fine.
Summary: It's a good phone. The battery is fairly long-lasting; I'm not a big apps, games, or music person on my phone, so battery-life is decent. Now if I could just find a case that fits it and one I like!
Excerpt: Using this going for more than 2 years, it is still able to run most applications with very little lag, the only downside is it is still running android 2.3 gingerbread, so most new applications require 4.0+,
