Walmart site says 800. The box the Showtime came in says 1000. I would believe the box over a possible typo on a website.

800MHz is a typo on Walmart's side. This phone indeed has a 1GHz processor. It is renamed from the LG Splendor/Venice for use with Straight Talk. You can find specs if you search one of the above mentioned devices.

Question

What is the internal memory capacity of this phone?

I don't understand why they don't list this detail for all phones. I bought an LG Optimus Zip, and afterward, when it was too late, I found that it has only about 120 MB of internal storage. It does come with a 4 GB micro SD card, but most apps, etc., cannot be moved to the card.

Open Apps > tap settings > click on apps > running tab.

This will show all apps that are currently in use.

A way to close running programs that are not essential to the android OS is to open Apps > Application Manager > Install Task Manager.

With a single click, you can close all running programs.

This phone uses Verizon towers. If you happen to see this in the store and not ordering it online, there will be codes on the lower left front corner of the box. match the corresponding code below to decipher the carrier.

CDMA-V = Verizon
CDMA-S = Sprint
GSM-A = AT&T
