Identification and Background

The LG Optimus V is a cellphone developed by LG for exclusive use with the service provider Virgin Mobile. It is very similar to the Optimus S. It is moderately difficult to repair, because the inner-backing and front case must be pried apart very carefully.

The Optimus V has four buttons in the front for general navigation, a headphone jack on the top, and a charging port on the bottom. On its left side it has a spot for a microSD card.
