No - The 505 "C" means Verizon service. You would need to buy the 505 "G" to use ATT.

No. You can use your phone you own regardless of where you got it but you have to purchase a SIM card for $14.99 from Straight Talk so you can use the ST service with your phone. The info is on the Straight Talk website. Free shipping right now for $14.99 and up in purchases.

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.

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.

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.

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 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"
