LGMS428, it is an unlocked Metro PCS phone. Reception is good most of the time, it is just certain stores and areas it refuses to work in. I was in one today where I attempted to make a call and it kept telling me emergency calls only, I had to reset the phone to be able to use it.

According to that you have Bands 2, 4 and 12.

 

I get the impression you did not research your radio bands so you just got bat##### lucky instead of bat##### crazy!

 

Also, you need to be on the LTE Plan for it to work right.

I got the phone free, it works, I never felt the need to research it, it works everywhere I go, with the exception of a few stores.

maybe my attempt at humor fell flat. Can't complain about FREE!

 

Either way, make sure you are on the LTE plan since it affects the voice bands on that network.

I understood your humor, I was trying to reply in kind... for now I bought an Asus Zenfone 4 off of Swappa for $50, and according to the specs it does work on the bands that I need. But in a few months time, I should be able to bank enough to purchase a new phone (it is peak season at Amazon with mandatory OT) so I think I will be able to grab a decent new phone in a few months.
