I’ve had many people read my blog about the LG Intuition googling the search terms, “Can I use the LG Intuition with Straight Talk?”. So I did some research and no, you can’t. And here’s why and the research I’ve done.
This statement is copied directly from Straight Talk’s webpage
No Refunds will be issued for this SIM Card or Service Card purchases. You will need a compatible GSM T-Mobile phone. You may also use an Unlocked GSM phone compatible with T-Mobile. This program/offering does not work with Straight Talk, TracFone, NET10, SafeLink, BlackBerry and/or CDMA phones.
And this is copied from Verizon Wireless webpage about the LG Intuition under Specifications
Digital (CDMA, PCS) 1x, EVDO Rev. A, LTE (B13)
Data Transmission: LTE, EVDO Rev. A, EVDO Rev. 0, 1xRTT
So now you’re probably thinking, “Does TMobile sell the LG Intuition?” No they don’t. In fact at this time only Verizon Wireless supports the LG Intuition.
Now with all that being said I must tell you I’ve had my contract LG Intuition phone with Verizon Wireless for seven months now and I love it. It’s more expensive than Straight Talk, but a smart phone on Straight Talk doesn’t seem very smart to me.
Check out number 6 in their terms and conditions before you purchase a smart phone from them. I’ve seen a lot of complaints about customers not getting truly unlimited data and being throttled or even terminated.
Another thing to keep in mind: I was told by a Verizon employee that prepaid customers don’t have the cell tower support that contract customers have. I can attest to that because the last prepaid phone I had I bought specifically so I could use the navigation, but where I live it never worked. With my LG Intuition contract phone I have no problem with navigation or any other service issues.
Now if you just want a basic cell phone to make calls and send text messages, straight talk may be ok for you. However I had to switch when they did away with phones using Verizon towers because the AT&T network wouldn’t work anywhere in my home.
I encourage you to do your own research and make decisions based on your specific needs. I always do a lot of research before I buy anything expensive or with a contract. My research of the LG Intuition paid off and I am extremely pleased with my phone and the Verizon Wireless network. I hope that helps.
Today I’m grateful for:
1. A beautiful sunny day outside.
2. I feel a sense of accomplishment writing this informative blog.
3. I have left overs for dinner so I don’t have to cook.
