I have downloaded... ringtones - wallpapers - games from zedge,net

It might vary depending on what state and all you bought it. My friend bought one in Boaz, Alabama so I called the store and asked them. They told me it was AT&T.

You NEED to purchase a service card plan of your choice - being either the... $30.00 or $45.00 or $60.00 card every 30 days --- unless you purchased a refurbished one, as they sometimes come with cards!

Minutes DO NOT carry over - nor does the text - or data ... every 30 days you start all over again with your service card purchase!

Hope this helps in your decision!

if it did not come with a card (some do) you will need to purchase minutes. It has 10min of free time ..long enough to activate only. if you already have a tracfone and are keeping same phone # and have minutes on old phone all you need do is transfer over minutes left will come along with it.

The serial number of the phone is registered to a specific provider. I tried to get it mine changed to a different provider, but the answer was no.

Out of the box, this phone is meant to be used with Straight Talk.

Since this is a CDMA phone, it may or may not be able to be flashed to another carrier but Straight Talk intends it to be used with their service.

Yes - go to Straight Talk web site and choose Phones, then enter your area code for both questions, then Straight Talk will show you all phones that are for your area. The LG 505C is listed.

What does Verizon non roaming tower mean?

answer 1
There is NO roaming with ST phones

AND you don't use the "best" part of Vz or AT&T towers

ST uses the "pre-paid" part of towers

SO service won't be as good with ST - unlike a plan from Vz or AT&T

answer 2
Well, roaming means you are not using your cell phone carriers (straighttalk) towers. I know from using my phone that on occasion I get a Verizon type of message (she actually says this Verizon number you are calling...) which leads me to believe that Straight Talk piggybacks onto Verizons towers. I think they might lease them out.

The phone boots up with tracfone as the splash screen, and it has prepaid submenu accessible from the touchscreen desktop where you can add airtime using a pin number. Beyond that I haven't actually tried to add airtime to the cell with other than straighttalk online account.

Any of the 30 day service cards would work with the LG 505c.

From experience...
Prefer to buy cards from the local WalMart store anytime and go online [using computer] and add card to RESERVE - adds on to existing days left.

Did not like the AUTO-REFILL with credit card - card was charged additional fees, so be careful.

Straight Talk has two plan options, $30 or $45 for 30 days service.

With the $30 plan you get 1000 minutes/1000 texts/ 30MB "Mobile web".

With the $45 plan usage is unlimited.
