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.

answer 4
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.

No, don't cancel! Get your ST service going, they will switch your number and cancel your service with TM. If you cancel your service first, you won't be able to keep your number. I have the phone you're looking at and LOVE it. My previous phone was an iPhone, and this one is equal at least!

Yes, you can port your number to this phone. Your phone number MUST be active for this to work. Once you port your number your previous phone will cease to work, effectively cancelling your plan. Always wise to call T-Mo and make sure though.

Here are the steps to take from a contract device:

1. Call your current carrier to retrieve your account and pin numbers
2. Purchase a $45 Unlimited Card as this will be needed for activation(can be done at time of activation online)
3. Either call Customer Service or go online to Straighttalk.com, click on Activate/Reactivate > Transfer Number. Put the dot in transfer number from another carrier.
4. Enter the required information(account/pin numbers). Be sure to use the same contact info on file with your current carrier.
5. After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a full working phone within an hour or two.
6. Enjoy your new phone

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.

Had the same problem when I first got mine. When making and/or receiving calls, just check your volume control on the left side of phone. Press top of control and you can see your volume going up on the screen. I generally tell the person(s) calling me to hold on while I turn volume up before I even begin the conversation.
