Check your wireless settings and make sure you have data enabled. Also if you are roaming you can talk and text but have no data coverage. Otherwise you may have an issue with your phone.

For this you need to have an Internet data pack connection from the service providers end and only then you can get connected to Internet anywhere you go.

No, if you want a phone that uses Verizon, get a phone that ends in a "C", not a "G". I just bought the new LG 505C for that reason.

Yes, we had an AT & T landline and had the Walmart Associate start the process to port the landline AT& T number to the cell. Everything went smoothly!

answer 2
Yes you can.

You will need to contact AT&T to get your account number and pin.

Then use "transfer number from another company" on the website when you activate this phone. Input those numbers during activation.This device will then become active with your current number. Your AT&T phone will pretty much cease to work once you go through the activation and porting processes.

99% of the time, you will have a full functioning phone within an hour or two.

Probably not.

With 3G I can not watch Youtube or CNN news. I get an onscreen message "not supported".

But if I turn on WiFi i can go anywhere I want and do anything I want, because the data transfer is a WiFi source.

I carry prepaid MiFi for those times when I can't find free WiFi.

Press the menu button and go into Settings, then click Wireless & Networks. There you can turn off the wi-fi. Also, from your home screen if you go left one pane, there are buttons to turn on and off your wi-fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync, and adjust the brightness of your screen.
