    Hi, my name is Brian, and I just purchased a new "Unlocked" LG G7 ThinQ from BH Photo Video, and it is supposed to work with ALL major U.S. carriers, but I wasn't sure that it would work with Straight Talk, so I called both BH and Straight Talk, and they both told me it should work flawlessly, so I went ahead and ordered it. Im currently using my ancient Note 4 on my girlfriends Verizon Unlimited Plan, but I wanted to switch over to my own plan with Staight Talk and the G7. In our rural area, Verizon has the best cell coverage, with most of the other carriers being spotty coverage. My uncle switched to Straight Talk, which runs off of our same Verizon towers, and has good service.

    I've been doing a bit more research on it, and comparing the 4GLTE Frequency Bands of the new G7, Verizon, and Straight Talk, I'm getting a little confused.

    Verizon 4GLTE Bands- 2,4,13, and recently added 5 I believe

    Straight Talk 4GLTE Bands- 2,4,5,12, and 17

    LG G7 Capable Bands- 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12,13,17,20,25,26,28,40,41,46,48, and 66

    I checked my current Note 4 that I'm running through Verizon, and it runs on Frequency Band 13, which the G7 is capable of, but Stright Talk doesn't show to use that Band. They do however all use 2,4, and 5. I'm confused, because I was thinking as long as I purchase the Straight Talk 4GLTE Sim Card kit for the new G7, that it would use the Verizon towers, is this correct? They are telling me it will work great. Should I be worried at all? Thanks, and by the way, I'm a newbie at all of this 😉

    Just wanted to follow up for future reference, the "Unlocked" LG G7 Thinq works beautifully with Straight Talk. In fact, I use it with both their "Bring Your Own Phone" CDMA sim for Verizon towers, as well as their "Bring Your Own Phone" GSM sim kit for AT&T towers, so that I can get the best service, no matter where my location is through out the country. I just contact Straight Talk and have them transfer my number to whichever sim I'm wanting to use at the time. Hope this helps for future reference....
