LG Optimus Black Headed to Multiple US Carriers?

We’ve already got a pretty good idea that the LG Optimus Black is headed to US Cellular, but a recent FCC filing suggests it won’t be the only US carrier the handset will call home. An LG phone with the model number US855 has been joined by an LS855, As855, and VM855, with the first two letters all designating a carrier, the biggest of which being Sprint (the LS855). Alltel and Virgin Mobile will also see the handset if our logic pans out.

The Optimus Black is best known for its ultra-bright NOVA display technology, though the handset is often overshadowed by the Optimus 3D, which was announced around the same time. The Black has been greeted with relatively mixed reviews.

    VM probably means Verizon. Why would Sprint allow it’s prepaid offshoot to have the same phone they do but allow people to pay 25 bucks a month? Not only that, even if they did allow it- Virgin customers would have to pay the full 500-600 bucks for it. I plan on switching to Virgin for the Triumph and from what I’ve seen- no one on a prepaid will pay 600 bucks for a phone. People are groaning about the 300 for the Moto Triumph.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    Anyone else think their reference to Alltel is a little questionable? You know, since Verizon bought out Alltel?
