lg 4600 7 year owner

great call quality, exellent phone reception with telus canada. i have it for 7 years now looking for phone as good as this one. with more pizazz, like camera and tunes player. otherwise great for calls and text.

Awesome phone!

I had this phone for 3.5 years, which in the cell phone world is a long time. The only reason I replaced it was because the battery was done and I couldn't find another one to replace it with. I replaced it with the Krzr which is OK but I still miss my old one. It was small enough to fit in my hand,...More
I had this phone for 3.5 years, which in the cell phone world is a long time. The only reason I replaced it was because the battery was done and I couldn't find another one to replace it with. I replaced it with the Krzr which is OK but I still miss my old one. It was small enough to fit in my hand, I guess it was a little thick for cell phones now but you can't find something that narrow in width and length nowadays. It had the basics on it, texting and calling which is all I need. Amazingly durable, I dropped the phone so many time on cement and in the snow/rain/water and it still kept ticking. It did drop calls every once in awhile but so does my new phone but oh well that's life. Overall if I could have this phone again I would. Absolutly amazing! Less

Not what I wanted in a cell phone.

CONS: I purchased this phone because of it's sleek appearance and let's face it I wanted a pink phone. What I got in turn was a phone that has a charger that is uncooperative and difficult to adjust. I also got a phone which doesnt have as many functions as I would have liked it to have - a phone tha...More
CONS: I purchased this phone because of it's sleek appearance and let's face it I wanted a pink phone. What I got in turn was a phone that has a charger that is uncooperative and difficult to adjust. I also got a phone which doesnt have as many functions as I would have liked it to have - a phone that needs to be charged all the time. The way the phone is made makes it difficult to type text messages - nearly impossible if you have long fingernails. If I were not stuck in a 3 month Telus contract I would have changed phones long ago. I can't wait to get rid of this phone. PROS: While many ppl complain about the phone's reception, I have not had those problems with my phone. Less

UGH!

I was looking for a basic, no-frills type phone and at first this photo fit the bill. But like another review said, after 2 years the battery dies quickly. The phone stays charged for about 20mins and then I have to hook it up to my car charger if I want to continue. When I looked into buying a new...More
I was looking for a basic, no-frills type phone and at first this photo fit the bill. But like another review said, after 2 years the battery dies quickly. The phone stays charged for about 20mins and then I have to hook it up to my car charger if I want to continue. When I looked into buying a new battery from Telus, it would have cost me 99$ which is more than I paid for the phone. While I like the phone, the battery life is pathetic and once this contract is up, I'll be looking into getting a new phone. Less

Good thing its discontinued

This phone honestly has the worst reception out of city than almost any other I've used. My boyfriend and I both have this phone and he will call me from just outside of town and we get dropped calls all the time. He'll use his work phone (also from Telus) and it will be just fine. I kind of like t...More
This phone honestly has the worst reception out of city than almost any other I've used. My boyfriend and I both have this phone and he will call me from just outside of town and we get dropped calls all the time. He'll use his work phone (also from Telus) and it will be just fine. I kind of like the features this phone has (you can change some interesting things on the phone like the dots on the outside lcd display) but really the selling point for us was the fact it was two different colours and one of those was pink. I do have to give it the durability plus though. I've dropped this phone more times than I remember and it still works. However right now the hinge part has a hole in it from where it cracked and eventually broke off. The charge on this phone is very weird. It used to last forever but 2.5 years into it, I'll get the charge battery beep after 1 or 2 phone calls after just charging the phone. After hanging up however I'll suddenly have 2 or 3 bars of battery. Having a conversation with that beep is very annoying. Good thing this phone is discontinued because I'd never recommend it. Less

Great, dependable phone

I have had this phone for 3 years, and it hasn't failed me once. I have dropped it numerous times, where the battery has flown across the floor and it still works great. Now that my 3 year contract is up and it's time to get a new phone, I'm am growing a little nervous about parting with it. Howeve...More
I have had this phone for 3 years, and it hasn't failed me once. I have dropped it numerous times, where the battery has flown across the floor and it still works great. Now that my 3 year contract is up and it's time to get a new phone, I'm am growing a little nervous about parting with it. However, I will keep it as my back up just in case. User friendly features, and very simple to navigate. As long as it's charged on its original charger, the battery lasts me a few days. I learned that the battery lasts longer if you set the mode to "Digital only". I'll miss this phone. Less

Worst phone I ever had

Not is the reception horrible (I have to go outside when I am at home to hear anything) but after 2 years the battery no longer holds a charge. I can make only three calls before the battery runs out.

Amazing

I have had this phone for more than 2 years and I will not give it up. This phone is indestructable. I have dropped it down stairs, into puddles inches deep, my dog has chewed on it, and I have never had to have it fixed! The features are user friendly and simple.

I read all the review before I decided to buy this phone. But unfortunately I ended up with bad experience with it. Here is my story. I got this phone last year with 1 year contract with Verizon, but now my battery is close to not functioning unless I charge it very often. It definitely decrease dramatically from when I first got it. Another annoying thing about this version is it's very weak. My spouse has same provider with same manufacturer but newer version (LG V6000) will have signal while mine is beeping out of range. I also agree with some earlier review about not able to see the screen under the sun. I don't think it was that big of a deal, but it is. You will have to take off your sunglass whenever there is sun. Below are my complains as well, but I guess it's more of a preference: Vibrate mode only when the ring tone is on loudest or silent. Would be nice to be able to have vibrate when the ring tone is regular. I consider myself as a very basic phone user. I only need a phone that works when I need to make a call, I don't really care much about any gadget that much. But I am very dissappointed at this phone. Less
