    That's a great deal. What condition was the phone in?

    Any lag on the Optimus T? How responsive and clear is the screen? Those would be my only concerns about the quality of the Optimus T (along with firm build quality, but I've heard good things).

    Condition of the phone was "excellent". It had been used, but it looked like it had only been used for about 10 minutes. The charger, headphones, USB cable, and manuals were all still in their sealed bags. Even came in the T-Mobile box. The phone still had protective tape around the metal trim piece and buttons.

    So far I have experienced a little bit of lag in the following apps:
    - messaging with the stock Android keyboard. I switched to "Better keyboard 8" and the lag is gone.
    - Angry Birds, if I get impatient waiting for the screen to scroll over to the sling shot at the beginning of the level and swipe to move the the screen. But there is no other lag noticeable.
    - NFS: Shift won't install properly, I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or not though. The game installs then notifies me that there is a 100 MB update to download. I can't get the update to install properly, after downloading all I get is a black screen.

    There is no other lag, pulling up different apps and switching from app to app. Pinch to zoom, multi-touch has no lag that I have experienced. I'm sure there will be certain things that it will lag in because it only has a 600MHz cpu, but keep in mind that it also has a dedicated GPU, which really helps with performance. However, they say that the phone's hardware cannot support flash.

    The screen is very clear. Even small text looks good. It is very bright and very colorful. Nothing like a super AMOLED, but the clearest screen on a phone that I have owned. It is capacitive, but it feels like it might be plastic. Either way, I'm waiting on my Zagg screen protector...I will let you know about responsiveness once I get it installed.

    I got the black/silver version, which is black soft-touch plastic with a brushed metal ring around the outside. It is a very nice looking phone and it feels sturdy in my hand.

    I was initially concerned too. I mean, it is a brand new 2.2 capacitive touch phone that you can get for less than $200. Surely it can't be that good, is what I was thinking. I've only had it a day, but so far I am very impressed. Inexpensive does not mean cheap.

    Activated the Optimus today, so far everything works perfectly. I had to call WFM to activate because the website asks for an IMEI # and it apparently doesn't like non WFM phones. Once I called though, Everything was up and going in a matter of minutes.

    The data settings stored on the SIM card work just fine in the Optimus. No need to change anything.
