Straight talk cell phone reviews LG290C

The new  LG290C from Straight talk

When Straight Talk brought out this great little LG290C slider phone, many people got excited. This style and design of phone, is so easy to use. The screen is nice, clean and easy to read. The keypad is large an easy to use. This might be a great phone to get for a grandparent who has a struggle with the small buttons that are on phones of a similar price. This phone on occasion has been made available to purchase as a restored phone which makes it even cheap to get.

Operates on Verizon network

Ok here is an honest review, of the LG290C..

The Internet access is slow  CDMA X1 (it's not 3G) but it's very relieable.

The phone can be used in any US state or any US ZIP code, there are no roaming fees!

$79.98 Walmart
