Question
Sprint Rumor vs Virgin Mobile Rumor Touch
I got a Rumor from Sprint when it was new. I went through about 3 or 4 phones when I decided to just give up. I put up with so much junk from it. Freezing, restarting itself, etc. I'm thinking about switching to Virgin Mobile this fall. I know that Virgin Mobile is under Sprint, but what can I expect from the Rumor Touch? Touch screen good or bad? Does it freeze? How well does the internet work? When you text using the touch screen, can you use T9 or whatever like on a regular phone keypad? Oh, and what are Virgin Alerts, Whisper Notification, and how well does Virgin Xtras work? (Sorry this is so long. Thanks for your help)

The phone is fine. The screen can be a little picky but you adapt to it. As for T9; it has an autofill for words as you type but since it has a slide out QWERTY; why would you use it? Virgin Alerts are alerts that notify you of promotions and balance alerts. Virgin Xtras is just a place to download "Xtra" stuff for your phone like ringtones, games, and wallpapers.

You can only use ringtones purchased and sent to this phone via the VM website. It won't allow you to use MP3s from the SD card, transfer them with Bluetooth or download them from a text message. You can PLAY MP3's off the SD card, etc. - but not get them assigned as ringtones. It's one of the biggest complaints most of us have about VM.

When you are doing something on the phone (e.g. web surfing or listening to music) and a text message comes in, the whisper notification is a one line pop-up at the top of the screen that shows who the text is from and the first few words of the message, so you can decide whether to break out of what you are doing to open the message, or leave it for later.

Question
How is the touchscreen?
Ive heard that the touchscreen is hit and miss. I think its called a resistive touch screen right? From what I have researched the screen is either too responsive and can select a undesirable option or it takes a few tries to select what you want to happen. Can someone answer this please? I would really appreciate it :)

I've been using this phone daily for a couple of weeks now and I think the touch interface is fine. It did take a bit of acclimatizing at first, it's not like using the trackpad on your laptop so yes, a bit "hit-and-miss" to begin with but you soon get used to it and errors drop way down.

Since it is resistive (not capacitative) you'll need to use slightly more pressure, and dragging or scrolling is a slower, more deliberate motion than the light flick of the fingertip on an iphone. On the plus side, you can use a fingernail or stylus. I really am thankful for the stylus option when trying to press a tiny link or button on a crowded web page.

how does the calling work?..

You dial someone's phone number, their phone will ring and if they pick up the phone you can talk to them. If they cannot answer then you might get an answering machine or voice mailbox, in which case you should leave them a message. Sometimes you might call someone and it just rings and rings forever, this is more often the case with the very elderly, but most of the time you can leave a message.

You may also find that occasionally your phone will ring. This means that someone is trying to call you. If you answer the call you can have a conversation. You can also send the call straight to voicemail if you aren't able or willing to answer it at that time.

Haha. The green light is pretty much just saying you don't have any texts, missed calls, voicemails, and that your battery isn't dead.
When you get a text message/voicemail/missed call, the green light will turn red and flash. That also happens when your battery's dying.

Yes you can put music on the phone using your usb plug that came with your phone but you'll need the sd card. Once the phone is connected to your pc just drag and drop your mp3 files to the storage disk.

No, you can't download or place music using the internal memory without a micro SD card, I've tried numerous methods and couldn't do it.
