Time for an Upgrade. Suggestions?

My mother in law's Samsung Transform has finally bit the dust.  I am looking for a Mid/High level phone with a smaller screen to replace the transform.  

 

I am thinking the Samsung Victory as my buddy has one on Virgin Mobile and is a solid phone and he has no complaints.    

 

Looking to spend no more than ~$100 with the contract renewal 

 

I would really like to get the LG Optimus G for her but the phone is just too big.

 

any ideas or suggestions would be very helpful

The Victory is a great small device. It's only downside is screen size. But for people who want a device that size, it's perfect. Avoid the Viper at all cost. It is not a small LGOG. Not even close.

I have limited time with the Victory (activation and initial setup) several times. It definitely isn't the phone for me, but I was pleasantly surprised by how snappy the little guy was.

We are rapidly heading toward a situation in which the only two options will be OS based smartphones for most of us and a few fringe feature phones for small children and decrepit old people.

The only problem I had with the victory. Which was a deal breaker was the samme internal memory. Cant install more then 3 apps it feels like

I hate to break it to you, but we're already there. And you're a bit off - small children are getting the White iPhone 4 (it's free and it's what they're clamouring for (and there's a persistent rumour that the Black iPhone has inferior technology)). Feature phones are mostly for the elderly, the super cost-conscious (those on messaging+voice (no data) plans), and those who would still be on Nextel were it not already gone.

Convinced her to go with the Optimus G. She messed with mine and loved the screen and the snappyness of the OS.

    • Yup. Very true. We were originally on an Everything Data 1500 Plan, which got Unlimited Minutes thanks to Marcelo's "Loyalty Benefits" offer. We then switched to Unlimited Freedom (with the Free HD add-on that Sprint originally wanted $20/month per line for.... remember that?) because the pricing was better with "iPhone for Life", vs. the "Loyalty Credit" for staying on a Legacy Plan. After that, I ran the numbers and switched us over to Sprint MAX, especially for the international travel benefits. There's absolutely no reason for us to switch to Go5G Plus or Go5G Next if we're going to do BYOD by purchasing from Apple/Samsung/Google directly as we've been doing. These new plans aren't priced for current customers to switch to. They're price for new customers, where they throw in a free line, etc. It's gone from "Uncarrier" to "Carrier". What a shame.
    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:
