This phone exceeds my expectations and I purchased the refurbished one that has been on and off the website because of its high demand. I actually had my order delayed two days waiting for this phone to be available. Well worth the wait. Faster and bigger than my verizon LG Lucid phone. I have watched this phone since it was released and finally was able to escape verizons contract. Advice is use wifi when possible and do not do illegal downloading or pirating because you will be flagged from straight talk and have problems. Other than that my showtime has better service in my house than my Lucid did. 4 bars as oppose to 1.5-2 if i'm lucky even though they both are CDMA verizon phones. Get this phone new or refurbished while you can. Also get a good silicone/hard hybrid case. These are the best for shock absorption. A screen protector as well as this does not have gorilla glass like my lucid does. we will see how it holds up to a car mechanics demands and accidents. If you do have problems be patient with straight talk service. It always pays off for me in the end.

I've been using a Nokia straight talk smart phone for 2-years and very happy with the service. Decided to upgrade to the Straight Talk LG L86C because of the large touch screen, and the updated Android 4.0 Operating System. No trouble porting my current phone #. This phone uses the Verizon networks, has a 4 inch touch screen, camera in the front and a 5mp camera in back of the phone. Personal E-mail was easy to setup and also use the Exchange e-mail which is so much better than my old phone. The images are crisp and clear. This phone works a lot like a tablet. Have not downloaded aps and probably won't to keep the phone running so nicely. I'm not a phone junky, just really like to use it to send an occasional text, e-mail, internet search and as a phone of course. Just a note about the battery - I don't use a phone a lot and so it will last about 3-days for me before recharging. I have it set to save battery power. This really is an awesome phone and I'm happy I upgraded.

Best deal for a large-screen no-contract phone. It is on the Verizon network and that's why I chose this one. It's fast, and I like the Android Ice Cream Sandwich vs the Gingerbread version I had on my previous T-Mobile no-contact phone. This one seems more responsive with 3G and data than my previous phone was with 4G, I guess that means VZ's network is good. I don't think anyone will regret buying this phone. It comes with a minimal amount of junk on it, and I really like the Smartshare app--it lets you stream music, videos and photos from shared folders on your home wireless network with a minimum of trouble. (That was not easy to set up on previous versions of Android phones.) You will love taking pics with the camera with a voice cue--no more clumsy touching the "shoot" button. I've only had this phone about 2 weeks but so far, I love it. Battery life is good--7 am till 11 p.m. and I still have 30% or better left with using the task manager app.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

This is probably the best smart phone I have ever purchased and it only costs $199 (plus shipping) if you order it online through Walmart. Ordering through Straight Talk, it will cost you $249 so order online at Walmart and save some money. It does everything in the world that you need a phone to do and the reception in my area is great. If I had to identify one flaw in the phone, it would be the speaker. When listening to music or using the speaker when driving, it is not always clear and the quality is not that great. I did download a music equalizer app from the Google Play Store and that appears to have heloed the quality of the music and voices on the speaker but in my opinion, LG should invest in a new speaker for this phone and not touch anything else on the phone! Cases for this phone are hard to find so here's a tip: Order a case through eBay or Amazon and you will save time and money by driving around all over town looking for a case that no one carries. Good luck!

Switching to Straight Talk from Verizon had been on my mind for months. The only thing truely holding be back from making the switch was Straight Talk's lack of quality phones at a resonable price. After reading some reviews and talking to a family member who actually owns this phone, I decided to go ahead with the process. WOW! I am so surprised and pleased with this phone. For the most part it does everything that my Iphone 4 was capabable of doing. And for just $45 dollars a month, you cant beat that especially compared to the almost $60 that I was paying for verizon. The only drawback to the phone is that it does have somewhat of a cheap feel, but I can fix that with a case. So, if you are a verizon customer who enjoys a more "fancy" phone but you can do without the monthly costs associated with Verizon, give this little gem a try.

  • A. This phone uses Verizon towers. If you happen to see this in the store and not ordering it online, there will be codes on the lower left front corner of the box. match the corresponding code below to decipher the carrier. CDMA-V = Verizon CDMA-S = Sprint GSM-A = AT&T GSM-T = T Mobile
