    again my concerns are 99% focuses on call audio quality and signal TX/RX. I don't care about sms, web, camera, mms.


    phone scoop eliminated LG220C (two two zero)

    Inadvertent use of web on LG501C seems to be a concern not shared by flip phones? or no?

    If you really want a 200C, I have one that I bought new last October, activated, transferred the airtime away from it, and put it back in the clamshell. $10 with postage to you. But remember, 220c has DMFL, 200c does not. And this 200c won't have two months' free service.

    I can see if dad will loan me his new 220c when I go to the lake this weekend, but I'm reasonably sure it'll be about as strong there as his old 200c was.

    The LG220C is a great phone, great reception, loud volume, very good build. If you rule it out because of Phone Scoop's so be it. I'm in the Southwest and it has kept me connected everywhere I've been with no dropped calls. I changed to the LG231C because I needed the camera but otherwise it is a 220C in a cheaper wrapper (not as solid). I can't comment on the LG501C, never tried it, costs too much just to get a Qwerty keyboard. I had the LG200C, thought it was OK but didn't like the feel, shaped too much like a real clamshell. The one poor signal report I saw for this phone at Phone Scoops was by someone talking about a Straight Talk phone. If you have been on these boards long enough you should know that the CDMA coverage by Straight Talk is not the same/nor as good as Net10 and Tracfone. I THINK it boils down to Tracfone and Net10 get the Verizon coverage while the Straight Talk folks get the Verizon Pre-Paid coverage.

    I just looked up phone scoop. It gives a 3.84 rating for the LG 220c which is good.

    Web can be turned off easily on the Lg 220c.

    It can be bought cheap now at retailers for $15. You can get a TRac or Net10 version. Trac texts are 1/3 unit.

    Nt clear to me why you eliminated it.
