    I just want to say, I have had a Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph for about a month now (I got mine for $140ish off ebay, brand new), and this phone is *Amazing*. It runs really well, gets great reception almost everywhere, and can practically replace your computer. Plus, they have their $35 unlimited plan! :D

    If you are on the fence for any of these phones, just stop worrying and go get it!

    You might want to consider using an eBay approved service like http://www.itemalarm.com which is similar to eBay's Saved Searches, but sends email alerts as frequently as you want, even within minutes of new listings, and runs 24/7/365. I use it every day and frequently buy things before my competition even knows they were ever listed! :) Good luck!

    Triumph is out of stock... can we get rain checks?

    At checkout, you can also use the promo code SAVE20 to take an additional $20 off of your order. With free shipping, you can't beat Virgin Mobile's Cyber Monday sale :)

      I just got done ordering a Triumph, and I just want to say "thanks" for the additional savings you have provided (SAVE20 actually took off 29.99!). Very nice of you ^_^

      • Adriana

        You're welcome! Maybe it was a 20% discount then :) Glad someone was able to use it! I used it too!

    I just ordered a couple at 5:28 Central time and it appears to be in stock. Even got my email order confirmation.

    I have been trying to order the LG Optimus Slider for over 2 hours to no avail. I have tried to order it 7 times. I called VM and no one helped me; they gave me the run around. I contacted my bank to see if the processing error was on their end, it was not. Someone at Virgin Mobile is reversing the charge. I have spoken with 4 different people and no one can tell me what the problem is. I'm on the phone, actually hold, right now after speaking with "tech support" for a financial issue. He states the phone is out of stock and they don't update the site for 50 days(say what?!) and I can not recieve a raincheck for their error.

    I was told that if I ordered over the phone it would cost the original amount of $199, but I tried to order it online 4 times but their system kept screwing it up, so what is a customer supposed to do then? I just called for a 7th time and was told the phone is in stock and I can get it for only $99.99. Either their employees don't care about costing the company money or they're trained to lie to customers. It sucks cuz you know no one in that company really gives a damn about its customers and we suffer for it. Bastards.

  • Adriana

    Makemetiny, keep trying! I didn't have any problems when I ordered mine. Their website must just be really busy right now. Try using the promo code SAVE20 when you order. It really works & it'll make up for your frustrations :) Good luck!

  • Matt S

    I kept trying to order a Triumph but could never get the order to go through for the deal amount. I chatted with a less than useful support person who suggested that I tried again. I sent an email to support to ask why it isn't working.

    This 50% off thing is fake, nothing comes of it, every link takes you to the same starting location or to virginmobileusa.com where the phones are still full price...

  • Dirty Little Burrito

    Don't buy it unless you plan to flash with CM7.

    Virgin Mobile will not update this phone!
