GSM only. Verizon and Sprint CDMA networks (and their MVNOs) are not useable.
Summary for the fearful:
- Phone is unlocked version LM-V350ULM, no need to wait 6 months, or 6 min. There is no V35 locked to Cricket. The info on their page is plain FUD.
- You do need the $55 plan no matter what. That's why the price is $205. No way around it.
- This is a prepaid plan. Meaning, unless you do something stupid like selecting recurring payments, you can do whatever you want with your card including nothing. I don't know when the card expires, maybe someone can fill this here.
- Regarding the porting. I actually wanted to port a number from tmobile that I no longer use (and tmobile makes it a pain to do it) and went through the whole process flawlessly. Except that I never installed the SIM. Guess what happened? I'm using the phone with tmobile from day one and that damn ported number is still with tmobile Meaning the porting won't happen until you start using their SIM. Do whatever you want with this info.
- The phone has wireless charging!!
- The phone appears to have band 71, but I can't check it because tmobile doesn't have band 71 in socal, AFAIK. But it is listed as one of the bands when I type 277634#*# on the LG dialer, not the google dialer.
- There is bloatware, but not as bad as in a Samsung.
- Even though it has quad DAC, the speakerphone itself is weak to me.
- I don't see a better tmobile phone for $200. If there is please let me know.
- If using on T-mobile, VoLTE and Wi-fi calling both work.
My Verizon works perfectly with this phone (no WI-FI calling)
