It's a smartphone so it should be able to get on the internet...I'm sure it has a browser...

Looks like you can only use Spectrum Mobile with this phone...odd

And it's ONLY available to people who have SPECTRUM INTERNET...so not sure if you can even use it?

I assume you can since you're asking about it.

I don't own the K31, but have used two different LG phones over the last 6+ years. Both great, phone, texting, internet, cameras, GPS, pretty much everything. Prices were ridiculously low. When our OTB was still open, I used to download live odds and willpays on my phone, easier than watching screens in the parlor. I had Virgin mobile, and now just use tracfone service, same as wife. With all the features I'm using it costs me about $10-12 a month.
edit: Trcfone has been telling me I'll have to soon get a new phone for my service to function properly. They've been sending me that msg for 6 months. Same to wife, but she's using a Samsung, that is inferior to my LG.

I have a Tracfone now, but it won't work in the hospital.
The K31 is from Spectrum, so I guess it will be ok.


Thanks all.

Tom , Does anyone's phone work in the area of the hospital that is causing your Tracfone trouble ? It might just be a tough place to get a signal of decent strength.

It may be the mental ward

If it's the mental ward, I have been told they block lots of outgoing signals there.

I am using my sister's Next10 with no problem.
Tracfone has never been very good.

Spectrum was totally uncooperative. They would not deliver the phone anywhere but my home address. So I suggested another place they could put it and went to Nex10.

Got a LG Journey LTE, should be here tomorrow.
