    A GSM phone (has a SIM card) will be on AT&T or T-Mobile as its primary provider. A CDMA phone will be on Verizon in most cases. Both types will roam on other smaller providers. Since GSM and CDMA are incompatible with each other there will be no cross roaming.

    The phone and provider depends on how you order direct from Trac or what is found available locally. Let us know your zip code and if you have personal knowledge of which provider is best in your area.

    Phones that work on Verizon have model numbers ending in C. Models ending in G are AT&T or T mobile.

    If you were on the Net10 site and put in your zip code this page would come up: http://www.net10-store.com/bpdirect/...Phonelist=true

    Look up at the address bar and you will see COGSM4 within the URL. This is the market area you are in; the CO means CDMA and the GSM4 means AT&T GSM SIM`ed phones. As mentioned in the previous post look for the C (CDMA) or the G (GSM) on the end of the model number (the LG300 should have a G on the end). Jot down the six CDMA phone model numbers if you want to see what is available to you locally (sometimes the G & C are missing from the model numbers when you go looking). For the GSM phones look at the model number on the bottom of the package to varify it contains "P4" near the end of the model number to indicate it will run on AT&T. If you see 5 instead of 4 it will be the less desirable T-Mobile service.

    You will normally find better deals on GSM phones, apparently Verizon minutes (or phones) cost Trac more to provide, so they don`t make the CDMA phones very attractive, to push GSM (especially T-Mobile ones). Ask more questions, rather than make a costly mistake or miss ways to save.
