    Am I the only one who noticed our handset not only has a slot for a micro SIM chop, but ACTUALLY has a micro SIM in the slot? None of my old handsets had one. Are the CDMA and GSM devices converging?

    I believe it's for LTE data.

    CDMA phones are always cheaper, the same phone is I think the f90 or l90 but don't have lte and I can tell you most of them probably would have better battery due to them being bigger.

    The equivalent GSM version to the LG volt (which actually is the LG F90) is the LG L90 with T-Mobile. There are a couple caveats though. The biggest two points are that the LG L90 T-mobile variant only has a 5MP camera and a 2460 battery while the LG volt has an 8MP camera and a 3000 battery...

    the ls740 seems to be only available as the volt on sprint and boost, it was not made available to any other providers or as a gsm phone. All LTE phones have a sim card, in cdma phones however it is not a full sim and is never removed.
