To start off, this phone IS the best Verizon phone that Straight Talk has. If you don't know how to tell what phones are "Verizon Phones", you simply look for a "C" after the model name. For example, this LG 511C. If the phone ends with a G or says GSM anywhere on the box, it is NOT a Verizon phone and is more than likely provided by AT&T or T-Mobile. With that being said, I have no choice in my area but to get a phone with Verizon service, because all the others' reception is terrible. But in reality, this phone is not worth almost $200 and I feel like I seriously wasted my money. The touch screen works well, but the phone is very heavy and uncomfortable to hold to your ear. The QWERTY keyboard has very small keys and it is almost impossible to type out a text message without making errors, unless you type extremely slow, which almost defeats the purpose of having a keyboard in my opinion. And as for this phone being "app capable", there are no useful apps available for this phone that I have been able to find. No email apps. The Facebook for Every Phone app does not work on this phone. GetJar.com has no apps for this phone. So for $199 you really just get a basic mobile web browser, an itty bitty keyboard, and Verizon service. Great service yes, but this phone is just not worth the money. This phone should carry a pricetag of no more than $99.
