Straight Talk adds another GSM handset, LG 620G

A few weeks ago we saw reports that Straight Talk, an MVNO of Verizon’s CDMA network, was adding GSM services. This came as a subtle move, as the GSM-based handset, the Samsung T401G, was available only at Wal-Mart. It looks like another GSM handset has made its way to the world’s largest retailer. They now have the LG 620G, a pretty basic slider that features a 1.3 megapixel camera, WAP browser, and media player. You can get it at walmart.com for $68.98.

    I have had an LG before. They are a good basic phone that stands up to wear. However, this phone or service causes an echo when talking. It is not a good connection. The only other complaint I have is that the navigation keys surrounding the OK key should be larger. I am forever hitting the wrong thing.

    @Wanda Johnson
    Straight Talk phones you need to pay close attention to the cell model you buy. Cell phone model numbers ending in a “g” (for GSM) means that it uses AT&T and/or Sprint networks, while cell phone model numbers ending in a “c” (CDMA) mean that the cell phone uses the Verizon network. All these networks are available to Straight Talk users.

    Does anyone know if Tracfone GSM models can access other GSM carrier networks? I have experimented with a Net10 phone it worked on CellularOne in north Arizona. The smaller carriers don’t seem to know if there AT&T roaming agreements cover.

    I have a USB cable that attaches my phone to my computer, but it does not work. I had to attach a Bluetooth to my computer. Presently, it only allows me to download photos. I have read that for $19.99 the Bluetooth capacity can be increased to include the address book. Would have to find site with the information.

    My Straight Talk service on my LG 620G phone was great until a couple of months ago. Now, it is aweful. It drops calls every minute or 2 and I can barely hear people on the other friend. I am paid up for 3 more months and hate it. I will problaby have to pay for another phone in additon to this one becasue it is next to worthless. I hate Straight Talk. I just sent the phone in and got it back nothing is better.

    I don’t know what happended. I was delighted and now everything seems to be falling apart with the phone and the service:(

    Sat on my LG620G and the screen went white. Trying to pull my phone list out. Told I needed a LG cord. Found one at Cellphoneshop.com for $5. It seems to communicate, but cannot get software online for the 620G to download my phonelist to my computer. Bought another 620G… It’s great.
