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!

This month we:
... bought $30. cards at Wal-Mart
... went online to "My Account"
... loaded card on RESERVE

Worked great and gave us the correct days, minutes, texts, and data.

Going to do this from now on and buy ahead.

Auto-Refill [with credit card] has additional charges, so be aware!

Reload 30 day service cards by:

• Buying from store or website

• Subscribe to "Auto-Refill"
[didn't like - has additional charges]

• Subscribe to "Refill On Demand"

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.

I actually have this phone...

YES, the service days left --- show on the "Home" screen --- BUT to get the amount of talk, text, & data usage amounts --- you have to go online and click on the "check balance" at the top --- then it will send you a text with the usage info.

Hope this helps!

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.

Is this fone CDMA or GSM?

answer 1
LG 505c = Verizon

My understanding is:
• ST runs off of the “pre-paid” part of the towers
• Unlike a plan through AT&T or Verizon
• NOT the whole tower, so your service will be kinda LIMITED.

Depends on what "letter" is in the model #...

► Remember ◄
“c” = Verizon towers
“g” = AT&T towers

According to the tracfone website it is CDMA, so it wont work with ATT towers.

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.
