Deal Alert: Virgin Mobile Android QWERTY LG Optimus Slider $19.99 with Free Overnight Shipping

Virgin Mobile has made overnight shipping free for all online phone purchases now thru January 3. Plus, almost every Virgin Mobile phone is on sale.

The best deal has got to be the LG Optimus Slider Android QWERTY slider Android QWERTY for $19.99. The Slider was priced at $149.99 when it was launched in Sept, 2011 and was selling for $129.99 a week or so ago. It's getting a little dated but is still a good phone. The keyboard is probably the best of any of Virgin's Android QWERTYs, the phone is rugged and stable and the camera is pretty decent.

The only real downsides to the Slider are that there isn't much internal storage for installing apps and that it's unlikely to ever be upgraded beyond Android 2.3. Still, it's a great backup phone and it's one of the handsets that users on Virgin's grandfathered $25 and $40 grandfathered plans can switch to and keep their current pricing. The $19.99 price is good until Jan. 3rd but I expect it to sell out long before that.

Update: The slider sold out in a couple of hours. Possibly more will show up before the sale ends on Jan 3rd.

Among the better deals that are still available, The 79.99 LG Optimus Elite Android phone $79.99 (reg $129.99) is another phone that will let you keep your grandfathered status. It's not a QWERTY but  has plenty of room for apps and a bigger screen and better camera than the Slider

If you aren't grandfathered or are OK with losing grandfathering, the $49.99 Kyocera Rise is an Android QWERTY slider that runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and doesn't have the Optimus Slider's memory limitations either.

  1. Hey Yeswap....How come VM doesn't put the iphone on sale when it has a sale...looking at all the deals on VM phones has had lately(VM,Radio shack,Bestbuy) I say its more tempting to get that dual core evo V than the iphone...$190!!!!! geeeesh

    1. I believe Virgin Mobile's agreement with Apple prohibits them from discounting iPhones.

  2. Nice, but the hoarders got them all! sold out this A.m.

  3. Our local boost/vm stores are selling iphones for 299.99. Panama city Florida.

  4. I wish VM had voice/text roaming on Verizon. I will seriously consider them if they did.
