The 511c is a CDMA phone using the Verizon network. It's the only kind that will work where I'm at. You will be safe with any of the 'c phones working with Verizon.

511C is Sprint, which is CDMA same as Verizon. Still, I had Sprint for many years and it was poor coverage. Now I'm using Verizon (am I?) with the R355C and coverage is wonderful.

This 511C is just too overpriced to even think of giving $print another chance any time soon. Good luck to those who wish to try.

I just bought this phone two days ago, and the scrolling you are talking about is driving me up the wall. I'm going to give it a week to see if it stops or if i find a way to turn it off, if i cannot find a way to shut that scrolling off i am returning the phone, its rediculous they added that scroll feature right on the home page of your phone, just dumb.
