Summary: Needed a cheap back up phone for my son. Im becoming very disillusioned by Virgin Mobile and am about to quit their company after 5 years. If customer service doesnt pick up, Im going else where. Im sure SPRINT took over which I had so many problems with them I couldnt stand them.
Summary: My Optimus after owned a year had a problem with only semi charging. Also often the phone would boot and when screen appeared the phone would turn off and had to be rebooted then turned off again. When the phone does this the back lights behind the four keys blink. I do not recommend this phone.
Pros: Good performance.
Cons: Charging problems, touch screen too sensitive - phone often dials #s with phone in pocket.
Summary: Iliked this phone because of the weight . I could feel it in my hand. But the biggest problem with the service was that it would always drop calls. All the time & it was static. Which made it hard to hold o canversation with any one.
Alright for the money, but quality doesn't last long.

Summary: So my best friend, my sister and I all have this phone and got it at relatively the same time. We all started having problems with it about 3 months into having the phone, which is why I can say for a FACT that this phone has glitches on its own. It isn't just my bad luck with one phone.
Pros: It has a touch screen which is nice, pretty decent price, Android, I have Pandora, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Email, some games, and a few other little apps with room to spare. Looks good.
Cons: Crashes a lot, slow, has an average/lowish battery life, can't delete a lot of the preinstalled apps, touch screen is unresponsive a lot.
Summary: Although this phone is considered "entry level" it really needs a complete over haul. I find myself having to uninstall apps just to download new apps. The phone does allow you to save certain apps to the Micro SD card but not all of them and there's a lot of bloatware that comes with the phone that you can not uninstall or move it to the SD card to make room in the internal phone memory.
Pros: Fairly large touch screen, Swype keyboard, Android functionality, Wi-Fi enabled and removable Micro SD memory card. The camera takes pretty nice pictutes, speech to text function
Cons: Extremely poor battery life, very low internal phone memory, freezes quite often, useless immovable bloatware and the navigation app drains the battery even more quickly.
Summary: As one of the few remaining Americans that didn't own a cell phone, I finally broke down and became a Virgin Mobile customer because of their awesome prices for cell services. As for this LG Optimus V Android phone I have to say I've been disappointed with it's lack of internal phone memory and constant freezing up. It's not a horrible phone but due to the lack of phone memory I find myself having to limit the amount of apps I am able to store on the phone.
