    I have both phones. The OpV puts the Intercept to shame. It's faster, more receptive, and more stable. ;)

    I have seen a couple versus videos on Youtube and they say the same thing, if you have to have the keyboard go with the Intercept, otherwise go with the Optimus. The Optimus is that much better at virtually everything.

    I havent owned the Samsung, but when I was deciding which phone to buy ALL of my research pointed to the V. Its faster and more responsive and just an overall better buy. The only downside is the virtual keyboard.

    I've owned both and, in fact, I still own both. I bought the Intercept first and struggled with it for 6 months before finding a super good deal on a used OV. The difference between the OV and the Intercept is like night and day. The day that I activated the OV, the Intercept went into my bottom desk drawer and will probably remain there forever.

    Yes, you can use Swype on the Intercept. All you have to do is install it. In fact, once I first discovered Swype, and got used to it, I never used the Intercepts physical keyboard again.

    I still have the Intercept because I would consider it dishonest to attempt to sell it to someone else without fully disclosing all of the phones short comings and I simply don't have that much time.

    The LG Optimus V is responds faster than the Intercept. Maybe you can find a place that will let you try both phones out to see which one you like the best. The Optimus is the best to me. I have gotten use to a virtual keyboard so i'm not really use to physical keyboards anymore.

    I started my Virgin service with the Intercept. All in all, I really liked the phone. Yea it was buggy, had to yank the battery more and more the further I got into its life. But up until I dropped it and cracked the screen, I was even THINKING about replacing it. I love the physical keyboard.

    Now that I have replaced it with the V, the V is by far the better choice. Like most have said, if you think you cant live without phyisical keys, go with the V.

    I just went out to the Radio Shack 5 minutes away from me and bought it. And I went with the LG optimus V for now anyway. Time to power up!

    Thanks for the help everyone
