Glad to see that.


Also, I think your Android 4.0 upgrade wont be long, Josh. Pretty sure LG already confirmed it for the Viper. :)

I have it.  It's called the "Mach."  


While no longer available on Sprint, it's on Boost Mobile, off-contract.  Uses ICS 4.0.4, with a few more advanced specs than the Viper.  1.2 GHz, dual-core CPU, Adreno 225 GPU, 8 GB internal storage (5 GB user accessible---enough for plenty of the largest apps on the Play Store), 1 GB RAM, Gorilla Glass, better pixel density, NFC, Android Beam and some other upgrades, like Dolby Mobile on the stock music player.  It can also accommodate a micro-SD card up to 32 GB and has a user-replaceable battery.  


Both are easy to change out. The keyboard slides out smoothly and is well-laid-out.  I only wish LG used the same layout as the "Enact," to allow typing closer to that on a desktop. nice to be able to view the whole screen when I type, like on a laptop, and not partially covered up.


Much better than the touchscreen for accuracy on long documents and checking your work. BTW, not all the office apps work well with the keyboard pulled out, especially caps, symbols and "fn"s.  I found Kingsoft comes closest to satisfying this requirement.  It's also free and has the equivalentscompatible with Word, Excel and Powerpoint for composing on-the-go.  


My area is just getting 4G LTE, so the handset switches back-and-forth frequently, however, plenty fast on 3G.  The camera and display resolution are what make this a mid-range device.  Despite those limitations, it should be serviceable for both business and entertainment for a long time.

    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
    • I believe one of the merger conditions was they had offer to sell it to Dish.  EDIT: Oops didn't see that this had already been answered.
