It has been a while since my last Optimus V post. I haven’t had problems in a long time. When I’m home I stay on wifi which works fine. Over the last few months, 3g has been working pretty well for me.
I have found that leaving wifi on while on 3g (away from home) tends to drain the battery pretty fast.
I think Virgin Mobile has changed their service in some way to help correct the problem. I haven’t had to reboot my phone in a while. I haven’t had to pull the battery in a while. I don’t know what they did but it seems to have seriously helped the issues.
I do use some app (taob – toggle airplane on boot) that puts my phone into airplane mode for a few seconds after a reboot. I’m not sure if it is still required but it doesn’t seem to be hurting anything.
Knock on wood; The Optimus V seems to be getting better for me.
