The Memorial Day holiday, which falls on Monday, is usually accompanied by Memorial Day sales! If price is the only thing that’s stopping you from grabbing smartphone, specifically of the Android variety, you might want to check out the latest deal that Virgin Mobile USA has for one of its Android offerings, the LG Optimus V.

Virgin Mobile is slashing its non-contract price of the LG Optimus V to $28, which is quite a bargain compared to the phone’s original $130 price tag. There’s a small catch to this sub-$30 offer though; you will have to use at least a month of Virgin’s Let’s Talk prepaid service, which costs from $35 to $55. After taking into account everything, you can have the LG Optimus V delivered just by paying a grand total of $78. Remember that this  price already includes unlimited usage of text, email, data and web – as well as 300 Anytime Minutes — for one month.

Here’s a refresher of LG’s entry level phone, the Optimus V. The phone ships with a 3.2-inch HVGA display, 600MHz TI OMAP 3610 processor, 3.2MP rear camera, and Android 2.2 Froyo. Though it only has 160MB internal memory, the LG Optimus V does come with a microSD card slot (up to 32GB extra storage).

The LG Optimus V is currently being restocked on the website, but Virgin Mobile said they will honor the offer for customers who order it before the end of the promotion, which is on May 28. You’ll just have to wait longer for the phone to be shipped out.

    This is an excellent phone! Buy one for a friend! They can always use Wi Fi after the first month, using google talk, tango, skype or the like, for communication services! A great way to introduce young and old to smartphone use…

      This phone sucks. Virtually no internal memory. Load a few apps or sync your pics and your toast

    total BOGUS report on VM OPTIMUS V — Checked with a real person at Virgin they “never heard of this sale” one day after it was posted. May 27 2012

    • Thank you! I’m about to buy one and started freaking out that I missed the deal by less than a week. That makes me feel better about life :-)
