How do you know what towers a particular phone runs off of??

answer 1
Since the phone model numbers ends in G, it runs off either T-Mobile or AT&T.

answer 2
The general rule is that phone model number designations ending in "G" will use either AT&T or T-Mobile and those ending in "C" will use Verizon or Sprint. You will have to research further to know the exact network but you can get an idea by going through prior Q&A answers to see if there is a consensus or researching it on the internet.

If you are in a Walmart store and can see the boxes that the phones are packaged in on the shelf or display rack, if you look at the bottom left corner of the box you will see a small rectangular box that will have a code inside that is interpreted this way:

GSM-A = AT&T

GSM-T = T-Mobile

CDMA-V = Verizon

CDMA-S = Sprint

4G Android phones:

LTE-S = Sprint

LTE-T = T-Mobile

The Ultimate generally has betters specs and the main differences that come immediately to mind are:

* the Ultimate has a larger screen at 4.3" compared with 4.0" on the Extreme.

* the Ultimate has a faster processor at 1.0 GHz compared to 800 MHz for the Extreme

* the Ultimate has a front camera in addition to a rear camera compared to the Extreme only having a rear camera.

There are a few other differences too but those are the major ones to me.

I apologize for not being helpful, srlepley214. I actually misinterpreted your question. I assumed you were asking if this particular phone is GSM.

Walmart used to code most of the ST phones in their titles if they were CDMA or GSM but they have discontinued doing that.

However if you are in a Walmart store and are able to look at the box the phone comes in, it will tell you if it is CDMA or GSM on the front of the box in the lower left corner. It will be coded as GSM-A being AT&T, CDMA-V being Verizon, or CDMA-S, being Sprint.

Here on the Walmart website, there is now no consistent way to tell but generally, if the model number ends in "G" it is GSM and if the model number ends in "C" it is CDMA (however, it is sometimes difficult to determine if it is Verizon or Sprint).

So for example, this phone has the model number of "L96G" so it is GSM.

The LG Optimus Showtime has the model number of "L86C" so it is CDMA.

GSM, primarily using AT&T.

The LG Optimus Showtime, sister phone to this one, uses Verizon CDMA.

Yes, I believe it's hitting the power button and the volume-down button at the same time. All the Android 4.0 LG phones I've run into do it this way, including my own.

LG L96G

I posted an question but it didn't post all the model number. It's an LG Optimus Elite LS696. I wanted to know if this phone (the LG L96G)was anything like the one I have (the Elite). The Elite LS 696 is a great phone but want to be on Straight Talk. Is this phone the same thing or one similar to it..maybe updated?

Suzi, the L96G Ultimate will have overall better specs than the Elite LS696. It isn't the "same" phone or isn't really an updated version of the Elite LS696 ...pretty much a different phone.

It will have a better OS, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich but not JellyBean.

It will have a slightly faster processor than your 800 MHz. The L96G Ultimate will be at 1.0 GHz but nowhere near the speed of the newer quad-core processors that some of the more up-to-date phones have.

The L96G Ultimate also has a much larger display at 4.3" which will be immediately noticeable. It may not seem like much compared with your 3.5" display but as I say, it will be very noticeable.

The L96G Ultimate also has a front facing camera in addition to the main rear camera which will help with Skype, etc.

Keep in mind too that the L96G Ultimate on Straight Talk uses the AT&T network which will have a better coverage footprint than Sprint which will help when traveling in rural areas, etc.
