    LG 221C Now Available

    While not as Earth shattering as the BYOP rollout, I spotted the LG 221C at my local Wal Mart. Only took Straight Talk 2 ˝ years to roll out a basic CDMA flip phone.

    T-Mobile’s new marketing campaign for Vermont and Western New Hampshire:
    “Try T-Mobile’s blazingly fast GPRS data network. We’re faster than iDEN and TDMA combined!”

    This looks like either the LG 220C or 231C. I know the 220 was available on ST for a while, wasn't it?

    That's the 221C (also available for Trac and Net10). The 220C has been available for over 2 years.

    What I had hoped to imply was that the 221C is just a variant of the other two; not so new.

    I believe this to be the first sighting of the LG235C. I can find no earlier mention of it.

    Here is the Tutorial for the LG221C: http://tracfone.deviceanywhere.com/s...e=en_US&search

    It appears the LG 235c is actually a Tracfone phone, not Straight Talk, and the LG 221c is a Straight Talk phone.

    You can tell by looking at the denominations listed under 'Add Airtime'. They are for Tracfone. Those denominations don't exist in Straight Talk or Net10.

    But the LG 221c 'Add Airtime' is correct for Straight Talk. Tracfone Add Airtime doesn't work that way.

    So I know this is an old thread. I feel kind of pathetic not bring able to find this info in the sticky's but.. Anyone know if you can use a tracfone say the 231c with straight talk. The rep told me no over the phone. Thanks. Count up another person who tried an old Verizon meid to no avail as well.
    all I want is a cool looking, responsive capacitive touch screen, useful keyboard with swype, 10+ megapixel high quality backlit sensor with optical zoom, xenon flash, 64gb storage, bluetooth/infrared/wifi, fm radio, flashlight, open app store, customizable text ringtones, int/ext pic/vid caller id, good battery life, high sensitivity gps chipset, and a responsive open source gui, on a high quality cell phone network with real 4g is that too much to ask?

    The rep was right you cannot use a tracfone or net10 phone on straighttalk. Only a straighttalk phone one straighttalk. Sorry.
