    Is there a way to upgrade my LG Optimus V from Android 2.2 to 2.3?

    I'm pretty sure it's up to the manufacturer to deploy the update to your carrier then they give it to you.

    unless you root your phone I'm afraid you haven't got a choice.

    Virgin may update the V to Gingerbread 2.3 at some point in the future...LG has said there will be a Gingerbread update for the Optimus line. If you want it before then you'd have to root your phone and find a build for it...I'm sure there will be a thread here and elsewhere on it before long. Virgin will not "allow" it for warranty purposes unless it's their release.
