No it must use the Net10 $50/30 day unlimited plan

Just a clarification to an earlier answer: This exact model the LG Optimus "Net" is not offered by Straight Talk. ST offers the LG Optimus "Q" which has a slider QWERTY keyboard. Net 10 also has the Q for $180 on their site. Any Android from Net10 or ST requires the unlimited plan $45 on ST, $50 on Net10. Buy your Net10 airtime from www.pinzoo.com and pay no tax so it works out to be only a couple bucks difference from ST. ST/Net10/Tracfone are different divisions of the same company, so the actual phone service is the same for the Android phones. The Samsung Galaxy Precedent, LG Optimus Net & Q all operate on Sprint networks only, so make sure Sprint works well in your area. Go to their website and check coverage.

This is a CDMA phone [uses Qualcomm technology], and does not use a SIM card; rather, it is programmed at the factory.

T-Mobile does use a SIM card [I'm using a T-Mobile SIM right now in an unlocked Chinese-clone GSM phone].

The CDMA & GSM technologies are different [well, they can communicate with each other, but you can't swap phone parts].

This is a CDMA phone. It does not have a SIM card. Sprint is the actual carrier. This model requires a Net10 $50/30 day everything unlimited prepaid card. There is NO ROAMING on this phone.

This is the same phone available direct from Net10 - and for the same price, including free shipping.

A Net10 $50/30 Day Unlimited minutes, text & data Monthly Plan is required for this phone.

This phone is not unlocked. If you order from Net10, your phone will contain a SIM card for the preferred carrier for zip code. If you buy from Walmart, you may get an AT&T SIM card or the preferred carrier for the area.

Can I check my email on this phone?

Yes! The phone's pre-installed e-mail app allows you to access Web-based & POP3 e-mail accounts.

However, I did not run this app; instead, I use Google's gmail mobile...you can also link/sync all your web-based and/or POP3 e-mail accounts to a gmail account, and sync this with gmail mobile. The phone can give "notifications" when new e-mails or text msgs arrive. You can also sync the phone's contact list with a gmail account.

You could access web-based e-mail [yahoo, hotmail, gmail] accounts from the phone's web browser.

Be aware, some "free" Android e-mail apps are ad-supported [you will see ads] like gmail & the Mail Droid another person recommended. I've only had the phone a week, and haven't seen any ads on gmail mobile yet.

No. As far as I know, "Straight Talk" is the WalMart brand of Tracfone. This phone is from Net10, and you'll have to use their service for refills.

However, this LG Optimus IS OFFERED as a choice from "Straight Talk"...their initial price is more... [search WalMart's site for "Straight Talk LG Optimus Q Android Prepaid Cell Phone"].

This phone is also available with no contract from Virgin, Republic Wireless, and other companies.

This phone can only be used with Net 10 service and will use Sprint towers. Go to sprint and check coverage for your area, don't trust the check on the walmart page. It is often inaccurate.

answer 2
No, this Net10 phone will use the AT&T and/or Tmobile towers. Verizon phones will roam onto Cspire towers, but you'll have to pay roaming charges. The only way to get a prepaid phone that works with Cspire is to buy it directly from them and use their flex plan. All of the smart phones available through Straightalk, Net10, Tracfone, etc., use either AT&T or Sprint towers, which don't have much coverage in rural areas.

Hi Lizzy - yes you can PORT your current net10 number to your new net10 phone. However note the following -- it is very important: WHen you get your net Net10 phone do not activate it until you talk to Net10 Customer Service - you will have to call them on a different phone than the one you want to PORT the number from. I recommend calling customer service rather than trying to do the port via the internet (that has been a real issue when I have ported my number in the past with Net10). If you activate your new phone before speaking with customer service they will assign it a new number which will "burn" to the SIM. Once a Net10 number is assigned to a SIM it CANNOT be changed and they will have to send you a new SIM card which starts the process all over again. So do the following:

get your new Net10 Phone
Call Net10 Customer Service (using a phone other than your current Net10 Phone)
Tell them you want to port your number
They will need the Serial Number and SIM Numbers (of your old and new phones)
They will then start walking you through the process

If they do everything correctly the number should Port within several hours. If not, you may have to call them back. I have had Net10 for 8 years and have ported my number many times - sometimes it works fine, and sometimes it takes several phone calls and hours on the phone with them. Be patient - they really do want to help - and will eventually get the job done. IMHO a few hours of aggrevation is worth the lower cost and excellent coverage they give. I have travelled extensively in the US and have NEVER had a dead spot.

Good luck.
