Screens for the LV Splendor/Venice/US730 should fit this device. You could probably buy them on Ebay or Amazon.

You can, but you will need your Verizon account number and may need to contact Verizon for additional information if it is required.

answer 2
Yes you can. Here is how:

1. Call your current provider for your account and pin numbers
2. Buy a $45 service card as this will be required for activation. Can be done at the time of activation also.
3. Call Customer Service or go to straighttalk.com. I find doing this on the web much easier.
4. From the webpage click on Activate/Reactivate > Transfer Number. Put the dot in Transfer number from another carrier.
5. Input the required info, i.e. account and pin numbers. Be sure to use the same contact information you have on file with current carrier.
6. After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a fully working phone in an hour or two.
7. Enjoy your new phone.

Question

Does this count as minutes with a mobil to mobil verizon account.

My dad has a verizon contract so if i was to buy this phone and use ST how would that work against his minutes. I was wondering if it would be considered mobil to mobil.

It will use his minutes even thou this uses the Verizon network. The issue is this is a prepaid straight talk phone and not a phone you are paying directly threw Verizon. now if you go threw Verizon prepaid then it wont use his mobile to mobile minutes.

but if his plan has the option of adding friends and family he can call anytime for free then he could add your number there.

it also depends on how often you talk to him on the phone. If you guys talk a lot then it may not be the way to go. If you guys talk fairly little I don't see it hurting his minutes that bad.

No. Straight Talk does not allow hot spot/tethering use.

By doing so, if you are are caught...Straight Talk can terminate your service without refund. They can even go as far as blacklisting your phone so it cannot ever be used on Straight Talk again.

Question

Will the LG Opitmus Showtime support Microsoft Exchange?

I recently switched to Straight Talk and purchased the Samsung Galaxy Centura running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. When I tried to connect to my work e-mail that uses Microsoft Exchange 2007 I was unable to connect. I worked with my employers IT folks, but with no luck so I had to return the phone. I then purchased the LG Optimus Dynamic whcih runs Android Gingerbread and I had no problems connecting to MS Exchange, but the system memory of the Dynamic is horrible so I am waiting for the Showtime to arrive and I am hoping it has no issues using MS Exchange. Has anyone had issues connecting to e-mail through MS Exchange using the Showtime?

Question

Does this phone have a gyroscope?

I want to run the Floor Plan Creator app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pl.planmieszkania.android) and it requires a gyroscope. Will this app work with the LG Optimus Showtime?

Although I believe it has an accelerometer, I'm pretty sure it does not have a gyroscope.

Here is a thread at "Android Forums" that is continually updated which list the phones that have the feature (copy-and-paste):

http://androidforums.com/4905803-post88.html

From my understanding, you can still use the Floor Plan Creator app but won't be able to use the "Room Capture" feature.
