The LG Optimus V has now hit Virgin Mobile USA one way or another. We've spoken of its arrival before and even locked down some pricing for you but now it's turning up on Twitter, Facebook and in some store locations. Virgin Mobile users can pick up an LG Optimus V (based on the Optimus One) for only $149.99, and it's pretty much identical to any other variation of the device with the exception it is now Virgin Mobile-branded. You can check out our full review of the Optimus One or just skip on past the break and see the LG Optimus V in action. [@getitbackup, Facebook via Engadget]

$150 off contract for that phone, which is the same as the sprint cersion... that's a steal imo.

For those who can't find this phone call you local Target and ask them to check using the following "DPCI# 080-02-0724" (Targets internal SKU) they have the phones in the stockroom but not on display.
