I just bought a Straight Talk Smart phone and have been told that you can tell what tower it will work best on by the number at the bottom of the box. I can't understand what they are talking about. I got one of the newer smart phones (LG Optimus Extreme). Thanks for any info you can provide!
They work kinda like Wind Mobile and Mobilicity here in Canada. They just run off other companies towers - they simply lease the bandwidth. Call 611 from your new phone to get a customer service rep on the line. Read them everything on the box and see if they can help you.
