This phone runs off VERIZON towers. Not ALL phones from straight talk that are CDMA run off Verizon though. All droid phones current and future from straight talk will go off sprint prepaid network. All other cdma phones that are not droids from straight talk run off Verizon towers.

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.

No, this is NOT a smartphone. It has no wifi capabilities and although it says it's app. capable, you're severely limited to apps you can download to it. (probably only java apps like from getjar.com) However, it is BY FAR the best phone you can get from straight talk using Verizon towers.

Yes, but my phone is a little picky with the calendar appointments. It will ring on the "end time" rather than the "start time". I'm asking customer service why this is happening. It may just be my phone, though.

I've had this phone for 3 weeks and I am almost positive there is no GPS capability. I tried downloading google maps on it, but it didn't seem to work. As for apps, the phone does have java, so i was able to download the opera-mini web browser and some other apps from getjar.com. I was also able to get free ringtones from phonezoo.com

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.

I assure you it uses Verizon towers with no roaming. All straight talk phones ending with a C use Verizon towers, except for the droid phones - those use sprint towers.

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.

I think the video quality is good, the pictures are clear and still shots are also very good and you can adjust the light contrast so if the room is dark you make the picture lighter before you take it

This does run on a Verizon network. I am leaving Verizon and switching to straight talk because of the price. I really like this phone. I had received the Android for Xmas- but that runs on the Sprint network and did not work at my house. So I had to exchage for a phone that would run off the Verizon network. I am really liking this phone. Hope this helps!

I think it is GREAT!! Uses Verizon's tower so the coverage is AWESOME. LOVE the pic quality and ease of use of all features.
MUCH BETTER than the T528g from Samsung that uses GSM and doesn't work anywhere near as good as this phone.
