This week, Radioshack got Virgin Mobile LG Optimus Elite Smartphone [radioshack.com] on sale for $49 (regular price $99). No contract is required!
Use the $10 off $20 coupon from here or print it straight from Radioshack Facebook [facebook.com] to bring the price down to $39.

This might not be the most powerful Android device out there (duh!), but for only $39, it's still a great entry-level and/or backup smartphone. It runs on Android 2.3.7, has a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, 800MHz processor (actually runs at 1024MHz according to independent CPU tests), Wi-Fi and microSD capability, 5MP autofocus rear-facing camera and camcorder with flash.

Rep / thumb / share!

Went to Radio Shack to pick this up.. but it rung up at original price of $99.99.. the person talked to the manager and said their computer system is still updating and won't reflect the instant savings. He told me the only thing I can do is to come back tomorrow.. what the heck man....
That happened to me as well, except they adjusted the price for me.
Ended up being $47 all told (picked up a $5 case). Not a bad deal.

Lucky! They wouldn't manually adjust it for some reason..
I guess I'm going to try another RadioShack next weekend since online says sale ends 3/30. Hopefully, it's still going to be stock instore.

I doubt they will have stock on by that time since these make excellent android phones for kid, GPS, web cam, dash cam, motion detector..etc.

Can this phone be used with Straight Talk service plans or must it be VM?

I think it is possible, but I believe it is illegal to do-it yourself to unlock the phone to different carriers now.

Can this phone be used for Google Voice with a WiFi connection? It does list Google Talk as one of the feature, but not sure if that includes GV with audio or just online chat.
I use Google Voice with GrooveIP on the Elite to make free calls. I switched from the V about 4 months ago and was able to keep the $25 plan. The Elite is a definite improvement over the V, well worth it for $40 especially if you can keep the $25 plan.
