We use the following website to explore coverage areas: http://opensignal.com/network-coverage-maps/

It is very useful for our traveling technicians to know what kind of local coverage is available for their phone.

I am a Washington state native and travel quite a bit throughout the state. I have this phone (L40G) and a Verizon mifi so I can give a pretty accurate comparison as to the coverage.

Both carriers have good coverage in Concrete itself. I do not see much difference in coverage in populated areas and smaller cities around Bellingham.

Both will have coverage on highway 20 to about Newhalem where service will drop out until just before reaching Mazama.

From what I've experienced, AT&T has fewer "holes" in its coverage than Verizon in eastern Washington especially in the far northeast southeast corners of the state. So I believe AT&T is actually superior to Verizon east of the Cascades for voice coverage.

You can go to the Straight Talk coverage map for this phone on their website and the Verizon coverage map on the Verizon Wireless website to actually view what I've described.

Ted,

It is not an unlocked phone, but it does not need to be. You realize it is specifically for use with straight talk, and it is a GSM phone which in many areas is the superior coverage frequency. Runs on att towers for better reception/ use. That was my reason for buying it, so there was no need to unlock. (for me at least) Hope that helps

Just call straight talk and they will help you.

answer 2
At the time of activation with Straight Talk, you will be asked whether you want a new number or want to "port" your current number.

If you do want to use your old number with Straight Talk, they will ask you for:

1. your contact Information (address) as it is registered with your current service provider including the ZIP code.

2. your account number associated with the current service provider.

3. the PIN or password to your account

Be sure not to cancel service with your current provider before you activate with Straight Talk. An in-service account is a requirement in order to port your number.

The porting process is usually very fast --sometimes within 5-10 minutes) and you will be able to use your old phone while the phone number transfer is taking place.

In the past, were your phones on this plan using the AT&T network? Even though you may have been using a Straight Talk plan in the past, you may have been using a Straight Talk phone that was using, for example, the Sprint network. Straight Talk plans can use any of the four major carriers depending on the phone (or SIM) you are using.

This phone will use AT&T native coverage and the AT&T coverage map shows excellent coverage in Albemarle.

There are quite a few cases to choose from in both hard and soft varieties. If you're doing a search, also look for the LG L5 which has has the exact exterior dimensions and features.

Search for cases LG L40G or LG L5.
