Net10 LG900G ReviewOk this review was written not after first using the phone but after a real good use. So the LG900G isn't greatest and latest in phones, but it is damn good for $30 which is how much it has been going for under Net10, and $69.99 with Straight Talk.

When it comes to which one to get out of the Straight Talk and the Net10 I have to go with Straight Talk because you will save at the end of the day with the $30 plan. The Keyboard is good, the keys are bigger than the Nokia E71.

The screen is bright and has a good resolution. The interface is nice to use it's fast and responsive. The Menu and icons are move in a quick smooth animation. The camera is good, and records pretty smooth video if you want that in a phone.

Battery life is good, not much different to other phones we have used. All round no bull here, you get what you get.. it's a bargain under $100 buck so go on give it a go.

trying to set my security code and it keeps saying invalid code.

I bought the lg900g phone and bought some Net10 air time. The cell phone does everything very well, except the key pad is too small and it has the weakest signal of any cell phone that I have ever owned. It won't even hold one signal bar. All of my other phones held three to four bars. I can't believe they would sell a phone that won't hold a signal. It does make a nice clock.

Comment: 

After selecting change codes (Menu > Settings > Security > Change Codes > Security Code), it'll ask you for the old code. The default code should be 0000, after doing that you should be able to set the new code -LG900G Owner

Comment: 

The phone code comes from manfacture set at "0000." Goto MENU, SETTINGS, SECURITY, CHANGE CODES, SECURITY CODE, Enter "0000", OK. Then enter in your new four(4) number code.

Try removing then reinserting the battery and SIM Card. I have had to do that in some areas. (Truck Driver)

Great phone for the price (I paid $30). Then I saw it at Harris Teeter in Fairfax VA for $15.99. Unbelievable! Admittedly, it was without charger of any kind, but still. Three things I don't like (but who can complain at the price?): 1) System doesn't allow international texting, which means I have to hang on to my $15/mo service w/T-Mobile, send it to my old Samsung cheapy, and forward it from there. I can receive international text messages though. 2) I have found no way to use this device as a speaker phone, and there is nothing in the printed or on-line services guide. This phone has tons of features, but apparently speaker phone is not one of them. And since I'm a bit hard of hearing, it's difficult to use it outdoors, even with the outdoor setting. 3) Technical support is just TERRIBLE!!!! Forget about getting any help at all. This is a Mexican company whose help desk is located in the Phillipines. And, while everyone speaks English, hardly anyone knows anything about the hardware or the software. Every time I've asked a question, I've been put on hold while the guy checked with his "supervisor". So if you're not able to figure things out for yourself, this is not the phone for you. International calling is only just OK. It involves dialing a preface number and code before dialing the number being called. They charge 15 cents per minute, which is high these days, when I can call for free using Vonage VOIP. So it's just an annoyance to me, rather than a deal killer. Overall, I'm glad I bought the phone. I don't call a lot of folks, mostly it's used for texting, and the QUERTY keyboard is just fine for that. Way better than my old Samsung.

I tried getting on Facebook and my hotmail, it won't let me, am I doing something wrong? But yet, it's using up my minutes like crazy. What should I do? Wondering if I should take back for refund!! :0/
