xctome: The LG Optimus Extreme aka LG L40G, runs off of AT&T towers. the LG Optimus
Showtime runs off of Verizon.
DJKNIGHT2359: Can someone tell me how much internal memory storage space this phone has
to the user?
Thatmexicandood: Can you use the 25$ dollar cards dor net 10 or do you have to have the 50
guy: Just activated mine, been using it for 2 weeks... its AMAZING, the 4" touch
screen is eye candy, bright and sharp and it dwarfs the 3.5" phones,
noticeably. The battery life is great, goes almost 2 days on a single
charge. The operating system is fun, the phone is fun to use. The ??
megapixel camera is okay, not amazing, but the built in flash really helps.
It will load most data from a micro sd card, no problems. Overall, if you
get this phone CHEAP like i did, you'll love it. I wouldn't buy a prepaid
samasung galaxy s1 s2 s3 or s4 since they cost hundreds of dollars, this is
an inexpensive alternative.
trish hipp: i got mine off of ebay for $5
Sahadow777: I have this phone and I have to say I'm impressed by it. Other than the
fact that it is 800 mhz. Also this does support adobe flash but can be
buggy at times, but expected since adobe flash isn't really good at all. I
wish that there can be a substitute. This phone's memory is good. Haven't
worried about moving apps to sd yet. Pros: too much to say. Cons: no front
facing camera, 800 mhz, no 4g (net10 or straight talk's fault )
Alicia Washington: Tasha yes I like it. Videos play smoother without constantly stopping.
Blake Shelton: 45 dollars for everything but 19 dollars for ensurance for 2 yrs
RagerRabbit357: how is it with gaming apps?
Steven Balta: What was the antivirus app called? Thanks for the quick reply btw.
April Gunn: Is there a speakerphone when you are talking on the phone? If so, where do
I find it? I've been looking and can't seem to find it ... Thanks!
Steven Balta: Ok. I don't see that app on my app list. But is there a way to massive
reset and keep contacts because its a pain in the butt to enter all the
Alicia Washington: Oops wrong phone sorry. I have the Optimus Showtime.
Tasha Holliday: hi Alicia do you like the Lg Optimus showtime Straight Talk phone. Its a
Tourmul: I'm new to smart phones. You said sound quality isn't that great. I'm
wondering then, how call quality is on this phone compared to other phones?
April Gunn: Never mind, I found it. I have to be talking to someone in order for it to
show ... LOL My bad ...
Steven Balta: I just ordered this phone last night! i cant wait
Kilo GEORGE: can you show how to unlock this phone.??????
Alicia Washington: I have this phone and it's on the Verizon network. It has a 1Ghz processor
and it does have a front facing camera.
Commodorefan64: if you can find the APK download it, and install the APK it an easy Google
search, i did it on my LG Optimus Logic

RubsBubs: is it good?
Cherry Bush: Great review. Trying to decide between this phone and Samsung Galaxy
Proclaim. Same price, lots of same features, but Extreme larger screen and
better camera. Still can't decide but your review definitely gave me the
info on this phone I needed. Thanks a bunch
chacesmith89: What towers does this phone use?
Aaron Fisher: Have you seen a 'speaker/volume boost' app for this phone to make it louder?
curly364: I got this phone 3 weeks ago. I loved it but now Im having problems. It
wont always let me type, it lags, the camera dont always take pictures and
I cant always make calls. I hate it when all this happens. It wasnt like
this at first. I dont know if Its got a virus on it or if doing a massive
reset will help.
Wray Ryan: I just bought this phone a week ago and I am very impressed. It is the best
phone I have seen in the prepaid market for the price. Does everything I
need plus. Plays videos from youtube and Netflix with no problem. I was a
bit concerned spending $150 on a phone and not knowing how good it would
be. Overall very pleased with the phone. Ordered a case from Amazon that I
will have by the 4th of April (It is for an L5, but I have been assured
that it will fit my phone). Hope this is helpful.
Matt Strand: Just bought this phone, but having problems finding a case and screen
protector made for this phone. Local retailers have none and cant find much
online. Any suggestions on accessories made for another model that might
work for this one?
Dolly VonCarnage: Does it set to vibrate? I've had problems with phones in the past just
being set to silent.
edgar soto: Does this phone support adobe flash player 11?
curly364: Yeah I know exactly what you mean. I have had to do it so many times. I
know ur google account and ur sim card should save them. Just make sure you
take out your memory card when you do the reset. You can also import all
your contacts to your memory card.
loadthebowl: Just get the nexus 4 its way better... Turn up
Ray Josephs: That's a in depth review...except commenting about actual call/VOICE
quality and ear speaker quality. First and foremost it's a PHONE!
curly364: I ended up having to do a massive reset on mine. Just incase it had a virus
or bad app. It helped speed up my phone a lot but I had to redownload
everything. I figured out what was slowing mine down was an antivirus app
that was always running. Once I turned it off it helped. I still will have
a problem with it lagging somedays but I just restart it and it helps. If
you keep having problems you can always call or email stright talk. Hope
that helps good luck!
lpgft: I've seen this model but it is a Net 10 phone at Best Buy. Is this the same
phone as that one ?
curly364: I also forgot to add today when I recieve a text from my bf i get 5 to 9
times of the same message its crazy and netflix wont work right anymore. I
have no idea whats causing it to have all these problems suddenly. To the
people asking this phone takes a sim card and runs off of AT&T networks so
it cant run off of sprint or verizon because they dont take sim cards AT&T
does. The screen is made out of glass similar to the Optimus G.
shadowlocker: Great detailed review man. Thank you, a lot.
John Pavey: is this phone hd?
TheShadowrider81: look up LG L5 cover on ebay. trident makes a great case and comes w screen
curly364: No problem I just so happen to be on here and seen your comment in my
inbox. Its called Lookout Mobile Security. I know other apps could cause it
as well thats why I had to do a massive reset just in case something else
was wrong because I was having so many problems. Its hard to send messages
or make calls when it lags that bad.
hunter johnson: dose it have a glass screen
Steven Balta: yes it is a good phone for the price
dreamoutloud 103: I love mine LG Optimus Extreme but i heard you can have swipe keyboard but
i can't find it. can you find out how to do it and let me know?
cjumawan: Hey Sara, Do they have any kind of case for the Optimus Extreme, I cant
find one anywhere.
justin cain: Bought the LG optimus extreme 3 months ago and happy to say it worked WAY
better than my LG optimus Logic
Karen Hauptstueck: Why doesn't Straight Talk offer this everywhere?
Adam Reed: Great phone, Except the fact that the 3g doesn't work on it. I've had this
phone for three days now and haven't been able to use 3g once and when i
try to use it the phone says I have no internet connection and no 3g. If
anyone knows how to fix this please tell me.
Kris Volker: Does this phone work with verizon towers?, and if not could i activate it
with verizon prepaid?
Steven Balta: I am having a related issue. The phone lags so bad to the point where I
will be typing and it will type one letter in 5 seconds. Do you or anyone
know how to fix this issue?
