Submitted by Dave Won. on Thu, 10/06/2011

There seems to a fair bit of heavy competition taking place at the moment in the Android prepaid world, and this is Virgins answer to the battle The LG Optimus V. Currently $99 at Best Buy stores it proves to be the one phone that is a reason to get excited, LG phones are typically high quality and this one is no different. This phone has to be used with the Beyond Talk plan. Which if you go for the cheapest plan, for $35 per month you get unlimited Data/Web/Text and 300 Talk minutes. Which really is a good deal. This phone is almost exactly the same as the LG Optimus S model.
