How does this phone compare to a first generation galaxy phone?
This was found, and bought, at CVS Pharmacy in West Lebanon, NH. Shocked the heck out of me to find it there before anywhere else. Check out the new packaging as well.
They have the white ones here at Target for $80. Are these GSM phones?

It's interesting how The_Sweeper finds the newest America Movil products in the CVS and Walmart stores there in the northeast, consistently. That would seem to indicate it's by design.
I've seen those new package graphics in some of the ads here on HoFo, and I think they're a nice upgrade from the old look.
And that's not a bad phone either, except that most will probably be better off with other options for the $50 plan. At first I thought it looked like the TracFone LG840G.
There is also a white version of the phone that has been spotted at Target (in both PA and NH).
my wife found this phone super cheap in a black friday ad,and we are thinking about getting it for our 12 year old daughter for Christmas. she has a sammy 451 now, and already uses the $45 plan. any thoughts? thanx.
I have been wanting to try Net10 with their unlimited talk, text, & data cards. But their website kept saying the smart phones would not work in my service area. Tried to talk with CS but they didn't speed good enough english to get an answer. Currently and in the past we had other Net10 phones that used the Verizon towers with great signal. So I decided to get one of these new phones and see if it would work - as long as it got decient talk & text, I could use our wi-fi at home. Got one for my son a few weeks ago and it has been working fine so far. Today I picked up one for the wife for $59 at Radio Shack. Since I am still under contract with AT&T (iPhone 4s), I will ride this one out. I also got the microcell signal booster tower to help with signal inside the home. We have great AT&T coverage everywhere except at our house. Since their phones are using AT&T towers also, I added them to the microcell list successfully and they have great signal inside also. It's a nice phone for the money. If I didn't have the iPhone I would get one myself. When my contract ends I was thinking of getting the sim card and switching over. As long as I can still use my tower for signal boost at home - otherwise home reception would suck. Just my personal experience so I thought I would pass this along.
Does anyone know how to use an Android Net10 phone without the unlimited $50/month required plan? Bought the LG Optimus Logic (L35G) for my wife but she only uses about $33/month via 900 minute cards for $60... and we don't want the $50/month plan.
What about using one of her old/current Net10 SIMs? Unlocking the phone? Anything?
She doesn't need the internet.
Not possible with Net10 or ST, you could try Airvoice,Red Pocket, or maybe H2O. None will work with your current phone.

Zmk76 is correct. Familiarize yourself with the America Movil family of companies (at least the three original ones -- TracFone, Net10, Straight Talk) and you'll see they're a closed operation (even as regards GSM), except for the BYOD SIM offer. If you want to use their PAYGO (or PBTM, pay-by-the-minute) service, you've got to use one of their phones, and I think TMFL-level service on TracFone would be better than Net10 for that these days. Check out the TracFone LG 840G. Or, if the wife would be needing a consistently high number of minutes of talk per month (short of unlimited), either the Net10 $25/750 mins. plan or the Straight Talk $30/1000 mins. plan might suffice. Either would need a new handset from the respective division.
