Impossible? Virgin Mobile just did it. The carrier announces the availability of the LG Optimus F3 and is selling the device for $179.99. Obviously, non contract is required. The handset goes with a Beyond Talk monthly no-contract plan which offers unlimited data and messaging starting at $35 per month.
