    Exclamation Another Optimus! LG OPTIMUS Black for Net10

    Hello everyone. The activation pages on Net10.com now shows a third Optimus --LG Optimus Black. CNet review on this product indicates this mobile has fewer apps that prior versions. Maye this one will be available with the "pay as you go cards" instead of the $50.00 unlimited card restriction.

    The Optimus Black, aka Optimus T, is a GSM-based T-mobile phone. The current Net10 Optimus offerings are both CDMA based.

    So maybe Net10 added the Black-T to offer customers a choice of GSM or CDMA but both technologies will require the $50 monthly card.

    There are also going to be CDMA versions of the Optimus Black

    Hi Sweeper. Thanks for the update. The CNET link provided by the OP is for a T-mo phone and that is what I was going by. But thanks for the update.

    The Optimus T is just another variation of the Optimus One released worldwide; another variant is the Optimus V on Virgin Mobile. The Optimus Black has higher specs than the Optimus One (The LG Marquee on Sprint is a variation of the Optimus Black).

    @Piqutchi and Sweeper:

    Thank-you.

    As indicated before there are several Optimus Black versions, name dependent upon the carrier:
    Optimus T for T mobile--------------------------------------------------------------GSM
    Optimus C for Cricket Wireless-------------------------------------------------------CDMA
    Optimus S for Sprint----------------------------------------------------------------CDMA
    Optimus U for US Cellular------------------------------------------------------------CDMA
    Optimus V for Virgin Mobile---------------------------------------------------------CDMA
    Vortex(slightly smaller version of "V") for Verizon-------------------------------------CDMA
    Optimus M for Metro PCS-----------------------------------------------------------CDMA

    LG Optimus C is for Cricket Wireless

    There are additional names for each carrier's phone or should I say "clone" as Piqutchi has stated.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~
    LG Optimus Black is also known as LG P970 ----------------------------GSM
    To the great manual hunters and posters, the FCC number for LG Optimus Black is
    BEJP970. Would you post an accessible link for the manual for us? Thanks.

    @Fireflyqn

    The LG Optimus S for Sprint is CDMA, not GSM.

    RE: Suggested Changes by Annepai and Spaniegldoggy:

    Optimus S: annepai says its CDMA not GSM I check this again against the Cnet site and it is listed as a CDMA. It will be corrected to show the change.


    Spanieldoggy claims:

    I review several sources and I have decided to keep your comments in mind. PhoneArena.com considers Optimus Black one of the Optimus One series. When I get better "intel" I will be happy to make changes you suggested. But this could be a situation of six on one hand and half a dozen on the other. Phone Arena indicates Optimus Black is part of the Optimus One Series. From PhoneArena: "With the Optimus One line, LG redefined our expectations for a low-end smartphone by offering smooth performance at an affordable price. The Optimus Black slots in between those devices, and is the stylish one of the bunch." http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/LG...-Review_id2848.

    Gadgetian.com says Marquee is a branded version of Optimus Black, exclusively made for Sprint. This was also noted by Piqutchi. http://gadgetian.com/24299/lg-marque...ate-price-tag/

    In any case, I believe this investigative effort has whittled down the choices to a primary target. Whether it's a model apart from the others, the parent of the series or one in the bunch we keep coming back to this particular model. LG P-970 aka Optimus Black.

    The model number for the optimus black is going to be the LG L85C so your more than likely to be getting another sprint carrying phone. Know that isn't what you guys wanted to hear.
