Kyocera S2100 Luno (Virgin Mobile)

Went with Virgin Mobile last year and haven't looked back.

People are paying $40 a month to MetroPCS when they wouldn't touch any of the limits on a $30 VM plan...1500 min./1500 txt/30MB...or do an iPhone 4S for $35, unlimited data & txt (with Sprint service...bye bye dropped calls while in strong service).

People wonder why I don't have a smartphone with my $30 Kyocera S2100 Luno (1) that I got last June (2).

They aren't impressed that it includes a camera, Bluetooth, external display, and voice command, but when I mention all I can do without needing to pay a lot for a phone, they get quiet. Comes loaded with Opera Mini for viewing regular web pages with Opera's proxy server, but it's the GPS (Google Maps app pre-installed) that changes attitudes. Also has an Email/IM app that covers Gmail's IM, AIM, Windows Live, and Yahoo IM, as well as IMAP/POP3 mail...kill the app and the IM keeps working... (3)

After a year, the "9" key is fritzing. Never had that happen with a phone before, and I had my Sanyo 5300 for five years. Still, based on the paragraph above, plus the fact it is better overall than any MetroPCS phone I have ever seen (construction, as well as unrestricted native browser AND Opera Mini), I would recommend the phone...for $120 a year less I pay for service, if nothing else... (4)

As for what phone I would want to own next, the $35 smartphone plan is attractive, but without using Skype, 400 min. is a little thin. If I went that way, I would go with an HTC EVO V 4G. (5)

Profit margin is too thin to consider selling VM unless you have strong traffic flow for something else that pays the bills. As a customer, though, I only have small quibbles, especially when compared with the competition.
