I just got the phone and easily found cases online. I got the ManiaGear Heavy Duty Armor Case Combo + ManiaGear Screen Protector for LG Optimus Showtime L86C/L86G (Stright Talk) on Amazon.com. Other LG model cases fit this phone fine. Just have to do some research.

There are custom fitted cases for this phone available from 3rd party cell phone dealers, Amazon, and eBay. You will need to buy cases for this phone:

LG US730 Splendor/Venice

This Optimus Showtime is the exact same phone.

Yes you can put lock codes such as pin number, password, pattern or face unlock, no those cases will not fit that phone, they're two completely different phones. Amazon.com has a lot of showtime cases.

Phone supports pattern, facial recognition, numeric, and slide locks.

As for that specific face, probably not. Camera location probably does not line up, along with volume rocker, etc. You can find cases at Ebay and Amazon pretty cheap for this device. Search for the LG US730..aka LG Venice.

This phone works on Verizon towers. I have great service in GA. However, it depends on which state you live in. Some states have more Verizon towers than AT&T. Some states have more Sprint towers. I went on line and researched which major cell phone carrier had the most cell towers in my state. I hope this information is helpful.

No it cannot. This phone will only use 3G. With that said, Verizon is currently upgrading their towers and service on the prepaid side because they are in the midst of changing their own prepaid plans. This phone does use the prepaid towers.

My 3G speed is quite fast, even in the middle of the day. You should have no problems whatsoever.

I wanted to buy a case for my LG Showtime last week when I purchased my phone at Walmart last week but they did not sell the case for this phone. I check at several other stores and could not find a case so I tried Amazon.

I found a really nice case on Amazon for the LG Optimus Showtime - Premium Accessory Kit - Black Hard Cover Case + ATOM LED Keychain Light + Screen Protector + Micro USB Car Charger all for $6.99 plus shipping. Fits and works great for the LG Optimus Showtime. They have many cases available on Amazon. Shipping took only 4 days.

I was originally going to get the iPhone but for the price this phone was a bargain and I love it.

You need to buy an Amazon gift card. Type LG l86c phone cases in the Amazon search engine. Amazon has great phone cases from $1.99 to $30. I paid $17 including shipping for a Heavy duty case.

Amazon or eBay. You can search for the LG US730 Venice/Splendor. This phone is the exact same thing. Only it has been renamed by Straight Talk for use on their network.

It's a plastic cover, peel it off and it will then be smooth. It's just for shipping.
answered 2 years, 1 month ago

answer 2
There is a plastic protective strip that runs around the phone. All you have to do is peel it off, start at one of the corners - it's only there to protect the phone while in transit. Once you peel it off the corners and edges are shiny and smooth. I discovered this by calling LG and they told me to peel off the protective strip around the phone.

To clarify, this phone is not capable of sending international text message, even with the $60 International Plan as others have stated.

From the Straight Talk website is this:

Can I send international text messages from my Straight Talk phone?

At this time, the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Precedent (M828C) and LG Optimus Q (L55C) includes unlimited international text messaging to the available destinations at no additional charge with an Unlimited Plans.

Absolutely. Although I would recommend not using it while using mobile data since ST seems to be throttling or restricting service to those that use too much mobile bandwidth. If you use NF on wifi tho, it's good to go!
