WILL THIS PHONE WORK WELL IN LAS VEGAS, NV. LG505C

• Check the "Service Map" to see coverage area.

• Service would depend on towers in your area.
If you're a traveler, you might want to check out "service" in the area where you travel, too!

• My understanding is:
ST runs off of the “pre-paid” part of the towers
Unlike a plan through AT&T or Verizon
So your service will be LIMITED.

• Letters in the model # will tell you what towers...
“c” = Verizon
“g” = AT&T

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Yes, Verizon is the carrier for the LG 505c.
Being that this is a pre-paid plan [not contract] you will bounce off the tower on the pre-paid tower part.

Look at it this way, why would AT&T or Verizon allow pre-paid phone carriers the same as their "contract" customers?

Service is good but not outstanding as with a "true" carrier.

I was told this and have written to them to confirm my comments but never heard from either. Also they don't delete my postings on this so...

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

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.

Just checked it out again...

Seems to be pretty good in voice on the texts but only played a little bit - not the whole text.

Couldn't get it to play the rest, for some reason.

It does have an icon [looks like a person talking] for this but I rarely use it.

This is located on the message [top right].

I do not know anything about carival.com - sorry!

I'm assuming you are really asking what towers this phone runs off ... it is VERIZON.

If this is not your answer, LG is the manufacture of this ST phone.
