Great phone -- except

I'v had this phone for a couple of years now and it has worked great except it has absolutely no roaming as you drive on I-80 across Wyoming.

I'v had this phone for a couple of years now and it has worked great except it has absolutely no roaming as you drive on I-80 across Wyoming. I'v been told that iwireless dosn't contract with any carriers in wyoming to allow roaming. To use a phone on this drive I'v bought a Tracfone. Also with Tracfone when you add minutes all minutes roll over plus your end of service date also extends so if you add minutes and you still have ten days left those ten days extend and instead of 90 days you have 100 days to end of service. This may sound like an ad for Tracfone but I'm just saying that iwireless is great as long as you stay in your home area or go to another area where it works, but there is no roaming in between.

I have used an LG 150 for over three years without problems. From its easy to use voice features to its sturdy case I could continue to use it for years to come if my cellular provider (BELL Canada) would be a little more flexible in its plans. The LG 150 is compact, durable, easy to use, flexible, and fun. I will miss it when I change carriers. This unit was not part of the voluntary recall by LG. I was very glad to have kept it! Less

this was my first phone and it's a good phone. i have droped this phone probably like 40 times and it still works. texting is fast if you use T9word (it's faster then texting on my stepsisters LG rumor) its got ten ringtones and ten alerts. (most phones only come with three or four of each) also what i really like is that if one of my friends calls and they are in my contacts it'll say "call from....(their name)" same with texting it'll say on the screen 2texts from...(their name) and 4 texts from...(their name) which is pretty cool since my friends have newer phones and they don't know who calls them cause they don't have caller ID but mine came with it!!!! i actually like this phone but the recall means i have to get a new phone:( Less

This phone is one of the worst phones I have ever had to use. Besides the issues with charging and the fact that the hinge in the phone makes it seem like it is going to break any second, this phone has also been recalled in Canada for having too much radio radiation. In my opinion, if you have this phone, even without the recall, you should get rid of it immediately. Less

I have the LG 150 and over the last few months it has been terribly slow and unreliable. Then I got the text regarding the free replacement. I was expecting the LG160 since it is about the same price...what did I get? The Lg Rumor phone! It is beautiful, with a camera, camcorder and texting keyboard. It is valued at 130 dollars...unbelievable!I advise everybody to return their phones on the double! I will forever be a Virgin customer just because of this! Less

RECALLED BY LG!

Emits too much radio frequency than allowed by gov't standards. http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2009/01/27/phone-recall.html

Simple and Reliable

I bought the LG150 because it was cheap, and I didn't need all the fancy MP3 and camera features. For what you pay you get a good phone. 1-Text Messaging: The buttons are very easy to use while texting, there are many features to help you text faster, and if you want the simple "Abc" texting is also available. When I first got it though I was used to "Abc" texting, and you're able to use it but you must select it every time, but once I turned off some of the T9WORD features I didn't need I got used to the texting very fast. Also if you receive a text message while creating one, you do not have to start the text over, you can just select the back button and you're back at the message you're creating. 2-Contacts: The contacts feature is very good, you can have up to 500 entries, and put many different numbers under one name, and you get to select the default number for that name as well, also you can choose whether the number is home, mobile, office, pager, or fax. You can also add an e-mail for that contact, a group, an individual ringtone, a group, a picture for when you make, or receive a call from that contact, a URL, a memo, and even if you want that contact to be hidden. 3-Settings: All I have to say is the settings feature is very easy to navigate, and you can have everything set very quickly, and easily. Also you can choose whichever shortcuts you want for certain keys, but the phone already comes with a "Quick Text" button. 4-Security: The security is very good, you can choose your own 4-digit lock code, and set it to lock right then, or the next time you powered up your button, and even if you turn it off and on, or take the battery out then out it back in, it stays locked until you type in the code. In this section you can also choose numbers you wish to block, limit outgoing calls to either 911 only, contacts only, or there is also a "Special Numver Option" and you get to choose special numbers you can call when the phone is locked for convienience, or emergency. 5-Extras: This phone has a scheduler and you can choose any day and time, choose the content of the event, choose whether this event will happen just once, monday to friday only, daily, weekly, or monthly, or yearly. You can also choose your own alert for that event. You can also search for events, or choose a specific day you want to go to be faster than scrolling through all the days, There's an alarm clock that also ha very similar settings to the scheduler. You can record voice memos, but this is only ment for small things that you will delete later ie. grocery lists, there is only about three minutes of storage for voice memos, and it will tell you the day and time you recorded it, or you can also give it a title. There's also a memo feature where you have a 140 character maximum for a text memo. There are two calculators on the phone, one is a standard calculator which you can use to add, subtract, multiply, divide, and there's also a decimal for money. The other calculator is an "Ez Tip Calculator" you can type in the amount of your bill, the pecent of which you want the tip to be, and choose how many people the bill will be split between. You can also use this function to figure out taxes at stores if you wish. There's also a world clock. 6-Calling/Bluetooth: I don't have much to say about bluetooth because I don't use it, I don't use this phone for many phone calls either, but there is voice dialing that I use sometimes, mostly out of boredom because sometimes it can't understand you so you might as well just select the contact or dial the number. I find caling to be very good on this phone so there's not much to say, you can choose how long you want the phone to ring, you can also ignore the call if you wish. 7-Reception/Battery: I find the reception on this phone to be pretty good, but it's not the greatest, sometimes in the same room I can have full bars in one area and none in the other. The battery has never died on me, but I charge it everynight, when I don't charge it for a night about half way through the next day it goes down a bar, so I think the battery is pretty good. 8-Other: Another thing I want to mention is there are volume control buttons on the side of the phone, and they are very good, they don't do anything unless the phone is open, and I have friends who have problems with thier phones ringer setting being changed when the phone is in thier bag or pocket. Some other little things I like about this phone is when the phone is open and you're texting or in the middle of a call or anything, the front LCD always displays the time. Also pressing any buttons oon the side makes the LCD light up, you don't have to open and close the phone. I hope my very long and detailed review helps! Less
