In for 1. This is the third (HTC One V, LG Optimus Elite and Slider) Virgin phone bought this holiday season. The deals are too good, combined with the Cash Back as well as the monthly cost. It is hard to pass up.
I know these are not in the league of SGIII or iPhone. But for the monthly price, no contract, overall phone price and the features are pretty good in-general it is a nice setup when on a budget.
*edit: to clarify, there are _some_ phones from VM that will be so difficult/impractical to flash that it doesn't make sense to even try. However, I am pretty sure this phone has been flashed to other prepaid carriers (I believe CDMA post-paid carriers like Sprint and Verizon carry a white list, so flashing won't work there). I'd check XDA or HoFo for guides.

I bought the Slider to tie me over until the S2 next cyber Monday, hopefully. Buy 25% off Topup codes from eBay to get discount- my phone was only $37.50. Thanks OP!!

Bought one last week for $50 and trying to get the difference back. They refuse,they are willing to take the phone back but not adjust the price. This is crazy. Any ideas? Returning will cost me the shipping.

If this had a flash for the camera, I'd get 10 of them @ $15, a freedompop and a Google+ hangout for people to live-blog candid photos from our wedding.

My $20 cameras have shipped via 3 Day FedEx. Even less after CB.
