LG's low end phones tend to pretty good so this might turn out to be a decent phone. One thing that scares me is the strange square screen. I don't know what the resolution is but I suspect that it's less than the 320 x 480 pixels which is the minimum that many Android apps require and also the minimum that Android looks good on. Update: I've confirmed that the LG Logic's screen resolution is 240 x 320 px.
Straight Talk has posted an interactive tutorial and a user guide (download PDF) (view online).
The phone is only available in Straight Talk GSM4 markets so we know that it's on the AT&T network. If it's not showing up for you on straighttalk.com try entering a GSM4 zipcode like 94102 or 65046.
