Question

DOES IT USE MINUTES TO BROWSE THE WEB

answer 1
It doesn't use any of the 1000 minutes of talk, or the 1000 texts. It uses the 30 mb that straight talk gives you with the 30 minute plan. Unless you use the 45 unlimited plan, in which case it still uses mb of data, but it's "unlimitied"

Yes.

This CDMA phone does not have WIFI so you can't browse for free like you can on a GSM phone.

the BLUE usa... AT&T not Verizon

Not quite sure what you mean by... red USA or blue USA - you just buy a 30-day phone service card - no matter what phone you purchase.

If it has C [as this one does] they operate off Verizon towers.

If it has a G - they operate off AT&T towers.

My understanding on towers - you are not getting the "real" Verizon or AT&T signals - it is their "pre-paid signal" for the Straight Talk phones or any other pre-paid phones you may purchase elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

Keyboard

When texting, can you have the Qwerty keyboard show on your touchscreen to type and use it instead of the slide-out?

yes, once you add the person you are sending a text to, touch the screen and the keyboard will come up however, it is not qwerty, it resembles the number keypad so the slide out is easier.

Answering my own question - have purchased since I posted "?" ...

Texting on screen is with number keys

Qwerty is on the slideout

Question

Cursor movement with touchscreen texting?

Have this phone and like it, but one issue driving me crazy. When writing a text on the touchscreen with the qwerty keyboard tucked in, is it possible to move the cursor left and right over typed words? There should be left, right, up and down arrow keys and I am baffled. Of course I can open the qwerty keyboard and move the cursor, but there are many times I'd like to write a text on the touchscreen without opening the keyboard. Thanks for any help!

Thank you pickySandy I did figure that out. Eh, it works so-so ... there's ample room for arrows to control cursor movement and I really wish they were available. Frankly I would prefer not a touchscreen but a keypad on the front (and the qwerty keyboard) but unfortunately right now such a phone is not available from StraightTalk as a "C" (Verizon towers) version -- the G versions are horrible service in my area.

I have the 505c and I don't believe you can do what you are asking.

I put my fingernail or pencil edge where I want to have the cursor.

Hope this helps!

This phone [LG 505c] has a poor battery life... so don't expect to be listening to music all day.

This is NOT a smartphone.

ST does not operate like a"contract" from AT&T or VERIZON.

"You get what you pay for" which is true in anything being... vehicles - houses - shoes - PHONES - etc.

I returned the first 505c and got another one because it dropped the internet constantly. Both the 505c phones have continuely dropped the internet. I would not recommend this phone for internet use!

One cannot use the qwerty keyboard on internet forums, but you can for emails.
