Who says basic flip phones have to be ugly ducklings?
The LG 221C is an affordable but attractive phone that works with CDMA networks and supports EV-DO data. There’s nothing extraordinary or unique about it, and that’s probably a good thing. Long-time flip phone users will feel right at home and those who are new to flip phones will find it pretty easy to master in a short amount of time as well.
Its biggest strength is its design. It definitely doesn’t look as boring or as unappealing as other flip phones that you can find on the market right now. Add to that the fact that it has all the basic phone features you could ask for—which include a standard alphanumeric keypad, a 1000-entry phone book, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, external speakers, and a standard headphone jack—and you’ve got yourself a truly attractive flip phone.
