Summary: I am loving this phone! The size is great and it's the best phone on the $25 a month virgin mobile plan. It has great picture quality, nice sound, and long battery life. Of course it has small glitches like slowing up or freezing from time to time, but in my experience, every phone seems to have that same issue. Otherwise, I am very happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend!
Summary: Bought to replace identical 18 month old phone that drowned. Phone arrived in a timely manner and was as advertised. Phone not the latest technology but works just fine for me as phone, camera, several apps, and internet connection. Phone now stays in zip-lock snack bag most of the time. If necessary would buy another. Battery life is fine for me unless taking a lot of flash pics.
Excerpt: I have this phone for almost 14 months. I say is really good for my first android phone. The first 4 months, I had no problems with it. Until it started loosing memory, lagging, and many more problems. So I decide to root it and install the 2.3 rom. I fix many issues but cause and HDMI so it won't work. 6 Months Later I installed 2.2 Sharp Rom and I will say that this is a completely recommended rom for any Motorola triumph user.
Great deal, buy the phone and the Virgin Mobile grandfather plan!

Summary: Great phone. Bought it on eBay and also purchased the Virgin Mobile grandfather plan here on eBay too. Save a lot of money by purchasing the Virgin Mobile grandfather plan along with this phone since only select phones work with the plan and this one is one of the select ones. Great phone, I did have a few issues at first with the service but Virgin Mobile fixed them.
Summary: One of the best pre-paid smart phones out there! I get all of the features with over half the cost, I also am running the Cyanogen Mod. Makes all the bloatware gone, saves on the battery. If Virgin Mobile works in your area this is one of the best ways to go. Also if you look in some markets you can download a hdmi program to correct the lack of working hdmi port, with the free wi-fi hot spot... Priceless!
Summary: This clever little device is simply amazing beyond words. Besides the fact that it's elegantly designed and perfectly sized, it is so intuitive, my 3 year old operates it. It is so choke full of useful features in the most accessible way - some you never even thought you'd need till you saw them. The touchscreen feature is very responsive.
Excerpt: To anyone on the ropes considering this phone I got to tell ya you wont be disappointed. I was reading some posts here and some people I think are reviewing the wrong phone or something. The guy below me says the internal storage is only 3 bits and I've got to tell ya son either you got the wrong phone or your phone is plum broke.
Cons: cant think of anything after puttin 2.3.7 on it
Excerpt: I have to say that I had my doubts about both noncontract phones and their service providers. I am glad that those doubts were laid to rest with this great little phone. Its not cutting edge or leading technology, but it gets the job done and will run any android app I have tried thus far.
Excerpt: I own a small flower shop and I bet half of my business is saved on my handy little phone. I use it more as a tablet computer most days but it excels at making phone calls too. When you are dependant on yourself and husband to do the arranging, books, and deliveries a smart phone really comes in handy and this one fits the bill and the budget. Its wonderful turn by turn directions make it impossible to get lost and you dont even have to buy a gps system for you car.
Excerpt: I just got this phone a couple weeks ago after switching from the LG Optimus Black and Straight Talk. These 2 phones are supposed to be very similar, however the Triumph is proving to be a much better phone. I'm not sure if it is the difference in providers or the phone itself but I have not had a dropped call, I have an internet 3G signal that is surprisingly strong (at 2 bars I am getting faster connection speeds than with full bars on the Optimus Black), and overall...
Pros: fast processor, 5 MP stills and 720p video recording, better service for less cost, phone itself was $100 less that Walmart's Optimus Black
