I did a lot of research before getting this phone. I had a Apple 3GS iPhone for a couple of years. It was defiantly time to upgrade. 1st off, I needed a phone to work off the Verizon towers instead of the AT&T towers. Where I live, both services work fine but where I work Verizon towers rule. So after a little research, I found out that all Straight Talk phones where the model number ends in a C are Verizon towers and the Maps on the box are red. I went to youtube and did a lot of reviews from teenagers to professional people that use this phone. I couldn't find one negative on the phone and everything I seen I liked tremendously. Now, That I have it I am very pleased with my LG Showtime. Its a quality phone and you can't beat it for the price. Its a little bit of a battery hog but you can buy extra batteries and keep them pre-charged or just charge it off your computer while you work or play. Anyway, I am a IT professional and take my word for this phone. Please, don't go get sucked into 2 year contracts . A virtual carrier is the way to go. Also, don't get sucked into an iPhone is the only way to go. Android is a better phone OS and the technology is way behind on iPhones and they are over priced. I have worked with several android phones and Apple at work. I would pick the android Phone over an apple any day of the week. To finish up, This phone is the best for the price. You get a 1GHZ processor, a 5 MPX camera, another forward facing camera for skype, and a 4.3 screen. Its a solid piece of tech. To put it in teen terms since all the texting language and lingo is the way, I will conclude with this, "LG Showtime is the Bomb, Dude!!!!"
