Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.

If you want to get calls this is not the phone for you.

Had this phone for 1.5 months and then it starts to turn it self off. It does not seem to be a memory issue or a low battery. When I turn it back on it does not tell me that there is a voice message.

Had this phone for 1.5 months and then it starts to turn it self off. It does not seem to be a memory issue or a low battery. When I turn it back on it does not tell me that there is a voice message. Sometimes it resets the ringer volume. I think that sometimes it turns itself on too. Very disappointing.

where to start... 1 the memory card will in place, has to be pushed into the phone (its new has not been dropped.) 2 the sim card dose not stay in place. i have to take the back off and the battery to adjust the sim card at least once a day. 3 you have to go through at least 2 menus to get to any features such as a calculator or alarm clock. 4 the battery life is a joke. 5 its very slow and constantly updating or loading the screen to do the simpelest task. 6 every song has to be downloaded to the phone one at a time. each song takes about a min. so you coud easly spend an hour changing songs on it. just off the top of my head. but i have only had it for a week, so i am sure ill find some other things i hate about it. i dont think i will ever buy another lg product after useing theis paperweight

I have had this phone for over a year and the problems others seem to be are common with weak batteries but mostly caused by the old sims cards. I experienced all of these problems and upgraded to the newer sims card and replaced the old battery and it has been 6 weeks with no dropped calls. One thing I need to add is all cell phones seem to eat batteries when used as MP3 players. These are phones not iPods.

This phone is not good

I have been using this phone for like 2 years now, but let me tell you LG-500 sucks. There are so many flaws. The phone freezes a lot. Its battery life sucks when you listen to music. Its music navigation is not good. No MP3 ring tone etc. But if you are just using this phone to make call it is ok.... More

I have been using this phone for like 2 years now, but let me tell you LG-500 sucks. There are so many flaws. The phone freezes a lot. Its battery life sucks when you listen to music. Its music navigation is not good. No MP3 ring tone etc. But if you are just using this phone to make call it is ok. It has nice keys. Its signal strength is great and I dropped it like 5 or six times. It still works, nothing broke. But competing with other phones in the market today, I would avoid this phone. At last I could get rid of this phone and get myself a N95-2 8GB.
