Katie,

I'm not sure what is going on with the LG Optimus Showtime availability. Two weeks ago, on both the Straight Talk Website and the Walmart Website for the zip code 86034, there was information about the LG Optimus Showtime being available. I went to the two Walmarts in Greeley Colorado, the Walmart in Loveland, CO, and the one in Severance, CO, and even the Walmart in Denver off of Tower Road, and they all said they had heard about the Showtime, but they hadn't received one yet. Today, I went to the Straight Talk Website and the Walmart Website and put in my zip code (80634) and the Showtime information was gone--and I presumed that meant that it was not available anymore for the Greeley area.

I have had a Nokia E5 Straight Talk phone for over a year and a half, and I'm ready to move to a more sophisticated phone, but I don't want a two year commitment on an iPhone (it will be a relic before I get it paid off with the forced monthly payments), and even the Samsung Galaxy II is not available in my area. I've been pretty pleased with Straight Talk otherwise, except for when the web access becomes sluggish because I've used too many MG for web access, but not being able to have the opportunity to replace my Nokia with a truly smart phone makes me think I'll have to consider other Prepaid Options than Straight Talk.

Please tell me this is just a mistake and the the LG Optimus Showtime will be available for the 80634 market.

I wanted to purchase this phone also but it is no longer listed on line and is not yet available at any wal-marts in my area. When will this phone become available again?

I think the showtime has free international texting if you get the international prepaid card

The LG Optimus Showtime is available in some areas ONLY at Walmart; i.e., the Straight Talk site will NOT list it, but it will be on the wall at Walmart.

I've had the phone about a week. It does not have the same coverage Verizon customers have. My brother has a contract phone with Verizon and it gets a good signal at my home but this phone gets no service at all at my home. I will be returning it.

I'm a bit curious about the post stating that the Showtime doesn't have the same coverage as a Verizon contract phone. The reason being that my son and I have done side by side comparisons ( He has a Verizon contract iPhone ) and we have found signal strength on the StraightTalk phone to be identical to the bars showing on his iPhone. Connection quality, outgoing and incoming, are pretty much the same too.

Hi,
I just purchased this phone from Wal-mart and I am very happy with it. I paid 79.00 dollars it was mispriced and I did not realize that it was a smart phone till later. I really enjoy all of the features of this phone. I am new to android smart phones, but for the price cannot complain. I need to find a case for it now.
