I have had my Cyclops for more than two years and it is still going strong! I started using Virgin Mobile about 5 years ago because I was afraid my kids would rack up some huge cellphone bills. Well, two of them have moved on to their own homes but my youngest and I still use VM. This is a great little camera phone. It takes decent pictures and I have had no problems with it at all. The only problem is that while texting, it sometimes skips or jumps backwards but that doesn't happen very often.
