low signal GSM-carrier, need Net10 phone on Verizon or Sprin

RE: finding which Net10 phones (for my area) run on Verizon or Sprint.

My phone is now the LG900g in the LA area. It's a Java phone with a 2meg camera. (same as the LG300GW for the phone nerds, but you already knew that.:)
I get a low signal where I live, inside or outside. From past experience with ATT it drops calls and TMobile is low.
Summarized: TMobile gives a low signal and ATT gives a very low signal where I live. There's a 3 story building between here and a clear area (park then small local airport) and there's an excellent signal on the other side of the building but not where I live. My guess is that that building shadows us from a cell tower.

I've talked to Net10 tech support (in British Guinea and then the supervisor in the Philippines. I got nowhere. They keep telling me (reading from their book of truth-and-information I suppose) that I have a great signal in my area. Then they tell me that they cannot tell me what carrier a phone is on till I order it. That's obviously because their book doesnt tell them but with proper knowledge they would know. I need to know this.
When I had Net10 a year ago It was open infomation and I had talked to Tech-Support about it then when it wasn't a big secret. A year ago I wanted GSM and didn't have a desire to get online with my phone. Times change.

Using the LG900g at home I get terrible signal and broken up conversations. I can hardly get on the internet and that only seldom.
An extra comment for the interested: the default browser "runs out of memory" after 1 webpage. It's useless. (I downloaded Opera Mini 4 and it's brilliant in comparison. I can see the page. Press a 1 and it zooms to a kind of view where I don't have to do the "horizontal scroll".

All this is from home. I will guess it's better somewhere else but I haven't actually done the experiment with internet. I know talk is better.

I'd like to buy a phone to take advantage of the $30/month unlimited rate BUT I need to find out which phone runs on which network. If it's the same network I won't be buying it.

So this is to find out what I can get on some other network. I'd appreciate any contributions.
