    I've searched high and low and have found every spec imaginable except the amount of RAM. I have an Optimus V on VM and it runs amazingly well. Coming from an Intercept on VM the phone seems like a powerhouse so I wouldn't be surprised if it has a healthy amount of RAM.

    "Internal User Memory 160mb" is internal storage for apps etc.

    424MB RAM
    180MB App space

    That's what mine says

    so the SD card adds 2GB more of "user storage"?

    How do you download to the SD card instead of using the built-in memory for downloads?

    If your phone is rooted Link2SD is WAY better, you can move any app you want to your sd card with it, but with the Optimus V kernel you have to have two fat32 partitions on your sd card. I have my SD card split to 12GB for Regular data storage and 4GB just for apps, but I find Link2SD better because you can put any app at all onto your sd card as well as it's dalvik-cache which saves more space.

    Or is that not really that common?

    Most apps say if they support move2SD in their market descriptions.

    Does the OpV allocate memory better than the Intercept, or do I just have more ram to play with on this phone? Is there that much of a difference between Android 2.2.2 (Intercept) and 2.2.1 (OpV), or is it the hardware?

    I used Memory Monitor on the Intercept and it always said like 26mb free of 150mb... whereas on the OpV it normally says 329mb free of 424mb. This phone hasn't slowed down since I got it and I have more apps running on it than I did on the Intercept!

    This phone is the bomb, and it feels like I went from a Ford Pinto to a 69 Chevelle SS lol.

    Hi folks, I just came across this thread. Greg4Android has the correct memory specs.
    Trilla's link to specs is also correct, it was just interpreted incorrectly. Look closely, it says: RAM capacity: 512 MiB
    ROM capacity: 512 MiB, including 140MiB user-accessible non-volatile storage

    MiB = Mebibytes. Look it up.

    Mebibytes, huh? Seriously? I thought 1 MB is 1024 KB, but then I looked up the wiki and there it was saying 1MB is actually 1000000 Bytes. This is crap. (I mean the usage of the term Mebibytes)
    Anyways, good to know that Optimus V has 512 MB RAM, uhhh, I mean 512 MiB.. They are on sale for $80 at BestBuy with a free $35 VirginMobile card.
