At gate in LGA my LG VN220 had intermittent to no service. Moved SIM to old iPhone for service.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Also the ZTE Cymbal-T. But these are full fledged android phones, he's probably talking about a non-smartphone that is still a smartphone...  ;)

Why wouldn't it be good, if its a regular android system? 

The Galaxy Folder is great, all apps work fine, however in NY its only picking up 3G and its killing me.

I was looking around for smart flip phones and don't recall the ZTE Cymbal-T. When was it released? I see it supports 4G. If its a good phone and the apps work well I would totally ditch the folder and buy this. I just can't find too many places which sell it new which needs an explanation...

Would it work with Verizon?

it seems like its a trackfone prepaid phone. That's why your not finding it all over.

I never used the Galaxy Folder to compare, but I own - not using much just as a toy... - a Cymbal-T and it is decent.

While the phone is sold as Tracfone Prepaid it seems to be fully compatible with Verizon's network, you gotta understand that Tracfone is just an MVNO using different carriers for different phone models, but you still might have a hard time to got Verizon to activater it (see https://www.frequencycheck.com/carrier-compatibility/7Nj1HV/zte-z353vl-cymbal-t-lte/verizon-wireless-united-states)
