Yes, mini voicemail and call display.

The loyalty plan will give you the enhanced voicemail.

Assuming CS means customer service; Here is my opinion.

LG G5 (minus any bootloop related worries) is all around way better phone than the other 2. However, for software compatibility in the future, the E5 might be the best since it is running Andriod 8.0. It also depends on the subsidy hit being applied against your account. J3=$250, E5=$150, LG G5???. However subsidy hit means nothing if you plan on staying for the full 2 years.

+1 on Android 8 and low subsidy for the E5 Play
Subsidy on the G5 is going to be terrible if you ever break contract, not even worth the resale value.

G5 is $250 no term.

G5 has good specs, definitely better than E5. But it's pretty long in the tooth at 2.5 years old. It could be pretty painful using that two years from now.

G5 is much better than E5 and J3. It also has a better resale value.

When they say limited stock, it is very limited. Get it while you can.

G5 specs hold up well despite it being a 2.5 year old device.

There is no comparison between it and the J3 Prime or E5 play.

Current Android version for it is 8.0.0. We have one, from Fido. Just off contract, now we have the $36 plan... and a backup G5.

Does anyone have problems sending mms pictures when wifi is on? Ive tried two separate phones and neither work unless I am off wifi. I have factory reset both phones and not played with the settings. A few calls to zoomer but they weren't able to fix my issue.

Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
