    I'm more worried about something along the lines of this happening.

    So you are worried that, while you are using your phone to check out some girl, she is checking you out, and realizes you are checking her out . . . Oy Vey. The solution here is obvious.

    No, apparently the mobile app locates other mobile users in the area and the distance of their device from my device. And I physically saw one of those mobile users in the store I was in. That was just an awkward feeling, hence, I handled it in a mature fashion and got rid of the app.

    Seems like the up-close-and-personal version of the general tracking problem. Is there a way to block being located, other than turning off your phone and removing the battery?

    How did you get this? I didn't find any unlimited text/data at this price on their websitel The cheapest was $35/month, as Engineer mentions. This adds up fast, for something I have lived quite well without so far.

    I like Androids-- love mine, in fact-- but I'd recommend going with an iPhone because they're uncomplicated and don't require as much app-finding to get how you want them. Functional, if not fully customizable. I think Virgin does a pretty cheap iPhone-supporting plan as well, comparable to the one I use if not identical.
    I assume both of you with Virgin service bought your phone from them also. Apparently they require it, and the phones seem expensive. What are the options for buying a phone separate from the service? I see phones for sale all over the place, so it must be common enough.

    Because I had Virgin service prior to them raising the price from $25/mo to $35/mo.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Might not be related to the topic, but I'm not liking the fact that Android phones are getting bigger and bigger.

    I might just get an iPhone for the slim factor.

    True, but there are still a decent amount of relatively smaller ones, like 4" and 4.3". Plus a lot of them have smaller bezels; compared with older phones of a smaller screen that have larger bezels, they really are not much bigger, if at all.

    But then I'll be settling for substandard specs T.T

    I want my quad-core snapdragon S4 too.

    must appeal to the same hipster "I don't know if I like new stuff or old stuff" crowd that loves Apple so much.
