Not a strong signal
20 May 2014
Summary: I activated this phone at home with wifi and when I went out of the house my signal was not strong so I sent it back. I have since found out that I should of turned off the wifi when activating this to get the phone to connect with local towers. My mistake.
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Realistic color
Excerpt: Oh well was good until they updated from ICS to Jelly Bean and I truly think it was the update that ruined this cell. Previously it was fine for me in midrange cells like the HTC ONE V but the Update made the cell MUCH SLOWER IN BENCHMARKS, USAGE AND NOW IT HAS RANDOM REBOOT ISSUES. I sent it back to Virgin and got a New Boxed one with JB already formatted on it and it was still no good with reboots and occasional freezes.
Pros: Large 2gig User Memory, Attractive Design, Good call quality, Brilliant Display, Easy Navigation, Super customizable, Long battery life, Decent Network considering the cost
Cons: Jelly bean made it almost unusable with random reboots up to 8 times a day. Some days its OK, WHY??, Ram is just 768meg but shows just 585m after hidden apps are accounted for, Virgin Mobile has the dumbest techs on the Planet and Samsung is not much better now, Why didn't I buy the extended warranty LOL!, I'm almost sure Jelly bean needs a a dual core CPU like the Victory and that cell has NO Issues with JB, Buy the LG F3 LS720
It worked once... before the OS update then is went snail slow

Excerpt: Ok when i first bought his phone was great then there was a system update that broke it. Constent freezng where the screen becomes unresponsive, its very slow, So slow as it can take 15 seconds for the keyboard to come up for you to type anything. Oh and also random restarts wile your useing the phone or it will just power itself off with 50% battery.
Pros: works kinda
Cons: slow, camera take long time to use, freezes, random restarts and powering off
Summary: I formerly had a VM Samsung Intercept with Android 2.2. The intercept was ok but the overall speed was atrocious. Upgraded to the Reverb with Android 4.0. Even with a single core, the speed is great. This phone has a good display. The extensive use of plastic helps keep the phone weight down. However, this does make the phone slippery and potentially fragile. You will definitely want to get a case and cover for this phone.
