I use this phone on the Walmart family mobile plan which uses the T-Mobile network. I have had no problems connecting to the network. I was pleasantly surprised that I can use it on the 4G networks where available. Have used it on my home wi-fi without problems. I have not yet tried to tether it or use it as a mobile hot spot, but don't see why I would have problems with that if needed. Also, I have not yet used the camera, so I cannot comment on the picture quality. This phone does use and come with a micro sim card. Since I have been on the Walmart family mobile plan for some time, my sim card was the older, larger size. I simply used the T-Mobile sim card that came with the phone as a template and cut my original sim card down to size. It works great. However, if you are not comfortable doing this, Walmart does now carry the micro sim cards for the family mobile plan and you can buy a new activation kit for $25 and have the information from your old card transferred to the new micro sim card.

So I purchased this phone to avoid monthly payments and or contracts on my phone bill. For $178.99 on walmart.com I don't see how you could do any better. The phone works great. Doesn't seem to be prone to freezing with my apps installed like the G2X or the My Touch 4G Slide I had. I think that is mostly related to Ram. G2X had 500 mb Ram and the Slide had 756 mb Ram, this phone has a whole GB. Each one performed better than the one before it with this one doing the best. My wife has the GS4 which is noticeably faster than this one, but I really am not in such a hurry that a millisecond of added loading time for apps bothers me. The screen is great. Not as high res as the GS4, but sometimes at night when one of our phones receives a notification I can't tell if it is the GS4 or the L9 until I pick it up. Again for $178 that really impresses me. Only had it for about a month so if I notice any big changes in my view of the phone I will try to revisit this review.

The phone has many of the smart phone functions and camera my kid wanted. Camera isn't as clear as I would like but still better than the old phone we had from 2 years ago. This battery life is AMAZING, literally 4 days without charging! You absolutely should buy a case the minute you get the phone as it is large and thin, with good clear screen display. The other plus on this phone is that the SARS rating is lower to the head than other competitors but still high on the body. The phone probably can't be put in your back pocket anyway since it is large and would probably break, so that takes care of that! It is a reasonable price until the next wave of technology has us all buying new phones! My kid is in a somewhat rural area and per the service map you are supposed to get "good" reception there, but they are getting much better reception that the old carrier and we can hear them very well. So the call quality and speech is very good on this phone.

LG L9 Great low-cost phone. Better than iPhone 4

This LG Optimus L9 is certainly not the best phone being offered as of 3/12/2013. Its dual-core, for example, not quad-core. But it is SO good considering its moderate cost at $200 without contract. The L9 won't impress folks cruising Santana Row in San Jose. But its responsiveness and its big display will make almost everybody happy. I purchased an LG L9 from T-Mobile three months ago. My wife likes it better than her iPhone 4. So we just ordered another L9 here at Walmart.com. T-mobile will help you unlock it after 90 days of service, so that you can use it outside the USA by inserting a simm card purchased in most European and Asian countries. Later on, you can change your L9 over to PremiumTel, with or without unlocking it. (seems like pTel has an agreement to use T-Mobile's network) pTel offers reduced unlimited-service rates. Perfect for older folks, like me.

Has a nice 4.5 screen. Dual core processor. Latest Android 4.1. Camera not too bad with HD video. The included software is a good bonus. I like the camera photo editing app built in. The phone is responsive, surprisingly light (feels good to grasp in one palm, wow), and notable processing speed. Previous to this, I used the EVO 4G LTE (and in my opinion, I think that is the best Android smartphone out along with Samsung Galaxy series), but I wanted a non-contract cellphone and the LG Optimus L9 did not at all feel like a downgrade whatsoever, in features and service. The LG Optimus L9 smartphone is the best for the price and features in the pre-paid/non-contract (for T-Mobile). I would say even better than the others in the same size/feature categories for the price in any of the cellphone services in my area. The other non-contract cellphone services all generally use Sprint towers, and they do not have great signals. I consistently get 4G with this phone in my region from T-Mobile. You can get UNLIMITED plans from $30 to $60. I would highly recommend this phone. I am not at all affiliated with LG, Walmart, or T-Mobile.

What is the deal with this phone ? It doesn't send pictures or receive them ! The camera on this phone is good but in the end the pictures stay on the phone. Doesn't send to recipients nor can I receive them. What's the problem ? There is a refresh arrow that just spins and spins and says 'sending' but never does. Have had phone a couple months and have never been able to send even one photo.

  • A. I was having a similar problem with my new StraightTalk Huawei Ascend Plus H881c however I was able to send but not receive photos from someone else's phone. I could receive photos from my own phone (sent to myself). After a week of troubleshooting and updating with StraightTalk's Tech Support and getting no results, we agreed that the problem might be exclusively with my phone. I will be getting a new replacement of the same phone within a day or two. Hopefully the problem was a defective phone and I'll be able to get pictures (MMS files) via text message with the new one. Otherwise StraightTalk agreed to refund my money.

  • A. This has to do with the APN settings for the MMS on your phone. If you want to go to my website and put in an e-mail I can get a little more info about who you use for service and help you get this sorted out. If this is on T-mobile you may have to contact their cust. service line or visit BestPhoneService.biz Hope this helps
