Not very cool

(4 years ago)

I liked my old Keocera phone way better. Terrible reception, but great battery life!



(4 years ago)

I bought 2 of these phones for me and my wife, I,ve been reading the reviews and have not had any battery life issues.The Batt. lasts a long time, I don't use it a whole lot but it's been 2 days and I still have 4/4 bars and it's been on 24/7. I don't understand all of the batt. problems others are... More


It makes and receives calls.

(4 years ago)

If you want to call and be called, it is great. If you want to launch a space shuttle while on facebook, keep looking.


A big step backwords

(4 years ago)

After using 6 to 8 phones in my life, this is the worst phone I have ever used. Battery life is short, reception is terrible (can't use it indoors) and feels very cheep to the touch. Features are limited, and everytime you send a text, it asks you if you want to save it. Every time!, very user unfri... More


I love this phone!

from Amazon (4 years ago)

I've had one of these for about 4 months now and it's been great! I purchased it as a prepaid phone for about $22 to use in case of emergency, got straight through to verizon at 11pm, who got it working that very same night. The battery lasts for days. I use it for unlimited internet access 24/7... More


Good as a mobile phone.

(4 years ago)

I bought this as a pay as you go from Telus. No complaints so far. But then I buy a cellphone for the "phone" part...you know, making and receiving calls. I don't want or use any of that other sh*t they cram on mobiles. If all you want is a mobile phone, you should be quite happy with this one. If... More


Okay Phone - Terrible Support

(5 years ago)

This phone is a good idea if you're just looking to text and call. I have had no problems with battery life and I have had very few problems in general. Pros: - Small and compact with no external antenna - Bluetooth enabled - Okay picture taking quality, but nothing special - Internet access is of... More



from Amazon (5 years ago)

Within 2 months of having this phone the screen died for no apparent reason. It never got dropped, it never got wet, nothing. Heck, I'm not a big talker and had only used it about a half dozen times. So following the warranty instructions I sent it back, at my own expense, only to have it returned... More


A Mistake

from Amazon (5 years ago)

I own other LG products (tv, cell phones, etc) and they are wonderful. This phone is a dud. I am on the second battery. I returned the first one after two weeks since it only lasted a couple of days. Now the battery lasts around four days (I have had the phone around five months). It does not r... More


The basic phone is ok. It's everything else that makes this a bad experience.

from Amazon (5 years ago)

If you are looking for a basic phone with limited features and lacking support this is your puppy. If you want to easily back up your contacts or customize your phone for free, (ring tones or backgrounds) look elsewhere. Seems like Verizon nickles and dimes you to death.
