Yes, but not for awhile I bet.

answer 2
Yes it is upgradable to 2.3, but remember Virgin Mobile is a pre pay company. Even if this device gets upgraded on sprint(who owns Virgin Mobile USA), it dose not mean we would get it at the same time or at all. We may never get it depending on how much Virgin decides to put in to pre pay service. Sprint upgraded the Intercept a few months ago and still nothing on Virgin Mobile.

I had the intercept and switched to the Optimus V about a week ago(it showed up early at my local target). The difference is night and day between the two devices. The Optimus is faster and better put together. My intercept had to much lag. The Optimus is smooth and fast.

LG has stated that all variants of the Optimus One (Optimus S, M, T, U and presumably V) will be getting Gingerbread. However, it is up to the individual carriers as to wether or not to upgrade.
