An improvement from the original Keybo in both style and in features
The LG Keybo2 is another messaging device that was recently launched by TELUS. This is an improvement from the original Keybo in both style and in features.
The overall look of the Keybo2 has a nice candybar style to it and also flips open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. On the outside you’ll notice that they keys are really big, have a good feel to them so you won’t get frustrated when using them or mistyping. The external screen is 1.56 inches and has a resolution of 160×96. Although it’s incredibly small it does have a few good features, such as getti... Full review
Redesigned keyboard and updated 3 megapixel camera, high-speed data support
The LG VX9200 enV3 is a full featured cell phone, with both a standard numeric keypad and a full QWERTY keyboard, as well as a microSD card slot, EV-DO support, and a 3 megapixel camera. The build quality is rock solid, with no abnormal creaks and a sturdy hinge to hold the two parts of the phone together. The battery is easily able to last through several days of light use, which is also a major bonus. Unfortunately, the web browser is frustrating, especially if you like to browse your own sites outside of Verizon's portal, and the 2.5mm headphone jack will make it difficult to use your ow...

One of the worst in the world
I would not put the time on writing this review if I wasn't extremely annoyed by this phone. In the beginning I was happy with it: not to hard to use, keyboard, good quality camera. But like many others mine started randomly shutting down itself. You don't have control on many of the settings; for example you're not able to mute the shutter sound when taking pictures. And worst of all, it's so freaking hard to connect it to the computer. Wasted so much of my time on something that should be more than trivial on any phone. I would never ever go with LG again.Less
Good phone except...
I really enjoyed this phone when I originally bought it, but unfortunately as time went on the phone quickly went downhill. The phone RANDOMLY SHUTS ITSELF OFF. As in, I'll leave it sitting on a counter, fully charged and on, and when I look back in 5 minutes it will be turned off. It doesn't happen all the time, maybe 3 times a week, but this is obviously a ridiculous issue with a cell phone. I'll have it in my pocket throughout the day, then take it out to check messages and it will be turned off again.Less
This is an amazing phone. I had it for 2 years, before it crashed. It never shut down or anything. Maybe I just got lucky. (: Hopefully you will too. ;)Less
I had this phone for about a month which came with the latest firmware VX920V06, it still kept automatically shutting down. I set the sound ON on power off, set press twice to unlock the phone, and had the phone with me all the time (24 by 7 on-call), but never heard anything before I noticed the phone is off. BTW, the battery contacts are clean. All phones have flaws, but you should avoid this issue in the first place, get something else. :)Less
I got this phone just before Christmas, and at first, I was thrilled... nice size, easy texting, music playback, and reasonably decent calls. But then about a month after i got it, the mp3 function quit, and I couldn't play music anymore, this is no big, as it is not an mp3 player, so I can deal. Then, three days later, the camera broke. I also don't need that, as I have a camera. Then the keys stopped responding, and I had to press keys several times to get the screen to light up so I could even see the time. This progressively got worse, and now I need to open up the clamshell several times in order to get the keypad to respond so I can read texts. Back in June, there was 8 whole days that i didn't have service... I brought it in to the local verizon location, and they downloaded an update, and it didnt do anything... and in the last week service quit again. I can't afford a new phone, so I am stuck with this horrible device that bairly recieves calls, deletes voicemails randomly, and doesn't deliver/recieve messages until hours after they were sent. To be fair, the three other members of my family have this phone and it works for them pretty well, I just got the lemon...Less
I got the LG enV3 as my first phone. When my parents upgraded theirs to this phone, they decided to get me one, too. Me, my mom, my grandma, and my dad all have this phone (except in different colors). It is very good for people who love to text. I am amazed at the battery life of this phone. When I took my phone out of the box, it had 3 bars. I spent hours setting it up and figuring out how to work it (I texted over 50 times) and by the end of the day, it had 1 or 2 bars. So far, it hasn't randomly shut off. A lot of people complain about that. The camera on the phone is 3.0 megapixels, which is alot better than the phone I was thinking about getting(LG Cosmos-1.3 megapixels)! I love the QWERTY keyboard. The keys are spread out well and they are very easy to push. I reccomend the LG enV3 as do my friends that have it. It is a great upgrade or first phone!Less
This phone is garbage.
Don't waste your time with this phone. It constantly turns itself off for no reason. The sound settings don't work. Sometimes it rings full blast regardless of your volume settings. The email function is a joke. There seems to be no way to stop it from alerting you to new emails. I set it to "offline" mode, but that too stopped working and now I can't turn off the alerts. I just deleted the email account altogether. Internet access on it is an exercise in futility. It's so slow that it's not even worth having. I'm forced by Verizon to pay for a data plan, but using it's features are pointless. I am going to dump this pig at my earliest opportunity.Less
A couple days ago i purchsed this phone with reading all these reviews . This phone so far is my first , and I completely love all of the features . Im just started high school and am going to be texting a lot more then calling but i have tried to call and it is crystal clear . I love how well the camera works , its better than my first real camera . But it takes a while for you to get used to the placement of your fingers to make sure you dont cover the lenses . I think the colour is AH-MAZING . I RECOMMEND THIS PHONE TO AN ADDICT TEXTING . Go and pick up the lg keybo 2 today you wont regret it :$Less
Only good for call, battery life charge daily
I went to LG to get away from Samsung. Only a minor improvement. It is a nice phone for making call good reception. Verizon has much better cowage in Chicago that AT&T . But there is were it ends. If you want to use the speaker phone you have to open it up the same is true of using and of the camera features, About 3 photos drains half the battery. And going on line for a single page will take about one bar of power. According to the Verizon rep I talked to expect to charge the phone every night. And all those online futures they talk about expect to pay $2-10 a month above your data plan if you want to use any of them.Less
the phone is great except
ok i luv the txt options on this phone. i went to the mass storage mode and i pasted a full album into the mass storage file just to see if it would work. well it said it was successfully coppied but when i went to play it on the phone it said the card had no music or media. so that other review did not help at all. would u have any other options for me to use? and yes i did format the card before i tried.Less
