answer 2
On the keyboard, there should be a mic button down next to the spacebar. The mic button usually will not show up if you have the numbers/characters side up. After you tap the mic button, phone should say "speak now" or something similar.

Yes it will. Make sure you look in the lower left corner of the box. This phone will either be on Sprint (CDMA-S) or Verizon (CDMA-V). You will need to by the CDMA-V version.

This phone does not have Corning Gorilla glass as others are saying it does. LG Electronics technical support will tell you that the model L86C is not constructed with Gorilla Glass.

I wanted this phone and while doing some research about it I learned it DOES NOT have gorilla glass. If they drop the price to reflect this.... I will buy one.

The screen on this phone is Corning Gorilla Glass. This phone is the same as the LG Splendor. It has been renamed for use on Straight Talk.

I put Skype on mine, haven't used it yet, though.

answer 2
Yes, you can consider the front facing camera as facetime. Facetime is an app that is included on the iPhone.

If you need/want to use video calling, Skype by far is the best. Uses 3g quite easily, even better on wifi. There are a number of apps on Google Play. Search for video calling. There are many good Android versions.

Phone does have GPS. Google Navigation and Maps is included. Processor is 1GHz. There is only a miniscule difference between 800MHz and 1Ghz. Walmart has mislabeled this phone.
