Why is an LG P870 NOT an LG P870?

Android Lounge - Android Forums - androidforums.com
Hi all... hope this is proper place to ask phone/carrier type questions:

Consumer Cellular (CC) sells LG Escape P870 for $299. They also have a bring-your-own-phone plan... just MUST be AT&T, UNLOCKED. Found various LG P870's on eBay... used under $100; NEW @ $125-ish.

CC says MAY work but can't guarantee. One eBay (new phone) says this phone will ONLY do VOICE & TEXT... but not Web and send/receive pics on CC. Searching GOOGLE finds many that say it's all controlled by Access Point Names settings...

1. Who, using the Bring-Your-Own-Phone option, would bring a CC phone??

2. If it's an AT&T, UNLOCKED phone in first place... then Android should be Android (on SAME phone/model)... isn't it the SIM that distinguishes one providers variations from another???

3. Why would VOICE and TEXT work but NOT WEB & PIC SEND/RECEIVE?? Shouldn't the WEB feature be (simply) providing the correct server/port addresses?? I opt for same thought on PIC but not a cellphone type but... why TEXT and NOT PICs via TEXT??

As I said, not a cellphone type but... REALLY HARD TO FATHOM that CC allows "non CC" AT&T/UNLOCKED phones... I chose SAME model as they sell and they can't GUARANTEE it'll work??

Anyway, hope this is right place to dump out issues... BUT... I would like to LEARN and not just get a CAN'T DO answer... even if I'm pointed elsewhere.

Thanks in advance!!

Steve
