jaydee, 03 Nov 2011is the straight talk lg optimus q a sim card phone ,and what network does it run on ?? any one ?No sim card. All Straight Talk androids thus far only run off the Sprint network. I wish they would find one that works off ATT network. It would be a big seller. So, I hope they are listening. lol

Thought I had a virus or something. Had phone since January. Reported the problem to Straight Talk and they sent me a brand new phone. I hope it doesn't flake out on me either. I wondered if perhaps the LG Optimus Q is one of those buggy phones. That's why they had no problems replacing it.
Rell, 09 Feb 2012"Unlimited" data doesnt mean "unlimited" no matter what cell phone company... moreHey straight talk really does give you unlimited everything. Trust me, I live on the phone! I should know, just saying. Now I'm with wal mart family and no your 3 g is not unlimited however you DO get unlimited Internet and data regardless. The service is decent and both prices simply cannot be beat! As for the LG, hey it's quirky but for a first time user it's decent, but within a few months you'll crave the next best ;)
I recently purchased the LG Optimus Q, prior to purchase I contacted Stright Talk. Asked if the phone was Adobe Flash compatible, they said yes.When I tried to download Adobe Flash Play, get error message phone not compatible. Can anyone give suggestion?
Hey, I am hoping to purchase this phone soon but I was wondering if it will support Skype? It would be a big help to me if anyone could let me know.

Rell, 09 Feb 2012"Unlimited" data doesnt mean "unlimited" no matter what cell phone company... moreI have been with Cricket for 4 years, and have never had my intenet messed with. I live on my smart phone constantly. So as far as they saying unlimited, Im believing it.
Great phone, many features, apps work well. One problem - the receiver plug to recharge the battery fouled after 2 mos. The pins pushed back into the housing so contact with the charger no longer worked. I had to replace the phone.
Mandie, 27 Jan 2012I was wondering if this phone has an alarm clock built in to it... Can any of you help me out? Yes, and the alarm clock works great.
So I bought this phone 2 weeks ago and already problems. It turned off on me, on it's own yesterday and again to today.I recharged it fully yesterday and never used the internet,today it had low power and asking to recharge.It came back on yesterday but today kaput! I have notice that the back of phone was getting warmer and warmer each passing day.Battery problem or a lemon? Help!!

Rell, 09 Feb 2012"Unlimited" data doesnt mean "unlimited" no matter what cell phone company... moreActually, unlimited data with Sprint actually is unlimited. I've been with Sprint for seven years and I have always been able to use as much data as I want. If you want to use your phone for tethering, there is an additional charge, but once that charge is paid the amount of data you can use is unlimited. They don't throttle your data either.
Just purchased the phone and i had daughter send me sounds via text messages so i could have better ringtones, but when i download attachment i cant find where the sounds were saved on phone - i looked in gallery and ringtones - probably an easy answer but a little brain dead on this new phones capabalities
Daniel, 04 Dec 2011I called straight talk and they said it does not have a sim card and it runs off sprint, but I... moreBecause this phone does not have a sim card it can run off of either Sprint or Verizon. AT&T and T-Mobile are the only major cell phone companies that requires a sim card for the use of their services.
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2012purchased this phone one week ago, for use with straight talk. all of a sudden, i can only get... moreI did not have this exact problem with this phone, but in less then a week i did have a large amount of issues with this phone. I will tell you as a customer care rep for a cell phone company (not straight talk) call the manufacture typically doesnt do anything unless you are willing to go without your phone for 2 weeks while their techs look at your phone. But I will say that I called straight talk after having this phone for less then a month and they were more than happy to assist me with a handset exchange...which i am not happy about their policy to send in my phone and wait for them to send me a new phone bc the rep said that it can take up to 15 days..luckily i already have a straight talk phone that i transfered my number to for the time being. But never the less they are sending me a new and hopfully working phone.
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2012Take special care to review Straight Talks data policy before purchasing this phone. I have a... more"Unlimited" data doesnt mean "unlimited" no matter what cell phone company you are with. It doenst matter if you have Verizon, Sprint, Straight Talk, At&T, Boost Mobile, T-Mobile, or Family Talk. Im a T-Mobile custromer care rep and I get calls all of the time, customers complaining bc their internet has been throttled. I really wish cell phone companies would stop throwing around the word "unlimited"..its false advertising
