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.

"Tilt and shake" are not mentioned in the User's manual. I checked the apps that came with the phone, and none responded to any tilting or shaking. Note: I previously had a phone that would change wallpapers when "shaken" [with a wrist flick], but this phone will not do that.

"Gravity sensor" must refer to the "rotate" function [which changes the screen from "portrait" to "landscape" on several different apps; it's easier to "thumb type" e-mails or text msgs with the keyboard in "landscape" mode].

Personally, I think "tilt and shake" are mentioned in error on the item description...

Don't think so. I've only ever heard the term "unlocked" used with GSM phones [like AT&T, T-Mobile, etc., which use SIMs]. I have a T-Mobile no-contract, pay-as-you-go SIM, which I can put into ANY unlocked GSM phone (I bought one on eBay). This Optimus phone is CDMA technology, which uses a Qualcomm chip, and is programmed by the vendor for the vendor's network [no SIM cards used]. I'm sure some genius has re-programed a CDMA phone, but I doubt it's something you can learn from YouTube...

I used to work in the cell phone dept. at Walmart. What you have to do is call the 800 number on the red card that comes with the phone. Then follow the instructions to transfer your number to the new phone. You do not need to get a new number.

No you can NOT interchange SIM cards. The reason for this is because the Optimus has only 1 plan you can use and it does not allow refills like the other regular Net 10 phones (we found this out the hard way after buying it). You will be required to get a new phone number and alot of headaches from just trying to set it up! Good luck with Net 10 customer service!!
