Net10 users have reason to get excited; not one but two Androids are going to be released soon. You can pre-order this phone here http://reserve.net10android.com/

The NET10 LG Optimus Q is going to be a little ripper, like all the Tracfone brands this phone will be using the Sprint Network. I think this is a good move and should make Turk, Sweeper and the gang very happy.

So good times for Straight Talk who get this phone aswell.

The fact that the new phones are exclusive to Sprint is not a good thing. The availability of Sprint coverage is very limited so most Net10 and Stratight Talk customers will not be able to use them. There must be some strategic reason for this but I know of many customers who are downright p*ssed off about it.

Why would Net 10 or Straight talk have an Android phone on the worst network in the industrie Sprint and T-mobile are garbage they both advertise 4g and the largest 4g how can that be when they both don't provide 3g or exceptable sevice in a 50 mile radious of my house tracphone smarten up put out a real phone on a real network.

I would have thought by now they whys of Sprint would be obvious. American Movil is a MVNO they don't have their own towers, they are contracted to the providers they buy time from. They know their customers want Android phones, they know they want touch phones, but they are not in the driver seat here, they can swing deals with the providers on service and hardware but they don't always get what they or we want. Do you seriously think that they did not approach AT&T, TMobile and Verizon with this? You bet your back side they did, We are probably lucky to have the LG 511c feature phone on Verizon, it is probably the closest you will get to a android on their towers for some time to come. AT&T and TMobile already (I think TMobile any way) already have smart phones on AM/ST/N10 and about 3 or 4 feature phones/touch phones all just this year, AM/ST/N10 has done quite a bit this year to get newer hand set in to their customers grubby little mitts. Androids on Sprint is no doubt the result of Sprint being the only provider that was willing to work with them in providing Android phones. So for those areas where Sprint works, you customers be thankful that AM was able to get Sprint to contract this. Otherwise there would be NO Androids on ST/N10 at all. Remember this two, in all things there has to be a beginning, With Androids on AM/ST/N10 Sprint IS that beginning. If these phones sell very well, even with the limited tower availability and as much as you all hate Sprint, if these phones sell very well and AM and Sprint start making profits, you can bet your back sides that AT&T, TMobile and maybe even Verizon (but don't count on them) are going to get in on it. It will take time to see if the Sprint contract is going to be profitable, if it is the rest will come, but there has to be that start and if Sprint was the only one who was wiling to do it, stop complaining! AM has their foot in the door, better things will come.

I think who could ask for more

I've used basic Tracfone and Net10 for years, but have no experience with Android/4G/3G, etc., and I have a few questions. I would really like an Android phone on either StraightTalk or Net10 with the unlimited plans. However, on ST the coverage map is so spotty that it would be useless for me. What I'm not sure about though is if this means that an Android phone on ST wouldn't get 4G in most areas, or if it wouldn't work at all in most areas? Can't the Android phones pick up voice and basic data coverage just like the normal GSM phones can? I thought that Android was the OS, not the actual transmission method (like GSM/CDMA). Could someone please tell me exactly what types of coverage an Android phone on ST will get? Also, I noticed that the coverage map on Net10's website for the new Android phones shows coverage pretty much everywhere. Is the map wrong, or is there something different about the carrier service, etc. I'm way beyond confused. Thanks in advance.

Ok the problem is not the actual coverage of the map in the web site because that's the coverage of basic voice and data combined the problem is how big is the 3G coverage because any lower then that and the android's internet will be as slow as a turtle so what u want to know is what is the 3G coverage alone witch is hard to find.

i thought the LG511C was on at&t not verizon is it on verizon i could be wrong i heard it was on at&t

Walmart stated that anything that ended in C on straight talk's phones is Verizon. IF nothing precedes the numbers after the phones id, it is AT&T and if it is a G then it certainly is AT&T. You can always check WONTEK. I have researched all Prepaid plans, Verizon's store has hidden extra charges, so does AT&T.. So Straight talk offers everything at a set price or unlimited.. I am buying the LG511C, gonna give it a whirl!

I have had sprint in the panhandle of Texas where I live. I moved here from Los Angeles not thinking about the ruralness of the area. Needless to say I NEVER had trouble with my coverage here when I did have sprint. I switched to ST, why pay more for the same? I LOVE my service. Currently I have a Nokia E71 that runs off AT&T towers. AT&T has ISSUES out the ass and sometimes for no reason other then the sun isn't high enough everyone with that company can't make calls or anything. Never had this prob with Sprint. I am thinking, even though I am in love with my Nokia, that I am going to give this LG a whirl. I like LG, had them before with no probs. I don't think the coverage will be an issue, and really if it sucks that bad..you do have 15 days to return the merchandise to Walmart.
