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.

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.

No No NO -- not from StraightTalk/WalMart

This phone [ LG 505C ] runs off Verizon towers -- look for phones ending in letter "G" for the AT&T towers.

Hope this helps!

Sandy, is right, with the normal text message function the character is limited to 160. However if you want, you can text up to a 1000 characters in the text space on the picture messaging function.

YES -but- your "old" phone service carrier MUST still be used for this to happen.

Do not cancel your old service plan before you transfer your phone number

We had Verizon plans -- transferred our numbers to ST without any problems -- did this online -- back in July 2012.
