Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
4 years of quality service
lasted 4 years through lots of construction work. I lost and found it twice. The front was so worn that you could read the manufacture date. Still the original battery( so i don't know what was going on for the other reviewer.) I give this phone 10/10 although it is not likely anyone is still going to buy it since there are better tech phone out now.Less
The Battery Life On These Lg 160 Sucks. I Sent It Back They Sent Me Another. Same Crap. Make 3 Phone Calls Maybe 1- 2 Minutes Each The Battery Is Crapped Out. Don,t Buy One. If you Chose To Make Sure That You Get A Postage Stamped Envelope So You Can Send It Back. Crap. I.ll Stay With My Old Telus . For Now.Less
Came with some troubles..
When I first got it, it locked up. It would lock up for the browser, or randomly for text messages, sometime the alarm setting off would lock it up. I had to keep resetting it by removing the battery. Eventually it wouldn't reboot. So I used my warranty and sent it back in. Next problem was they replaced parts of it and I was a new cell phone user. I had quite a time understanding why I couldn't set it back up, and why tech support couldn't help me. It had a new ESN# and the code to reconnect it was different for phones purchased online, apparently... I had to figure out the right things to tell support, had I not, I would have never gotten it reconnected. After that ordeal, I haven't had any trouble. But given the opportunity, I would try something else.Less
This phone replaced the LG-150 that was voluntarily recalled. Ironically, I had more success with the LG -150. I am unable to access some of the applications that I purchased from my carrier and the phone will frequently "freeze" up. The phone will ring but I cannot hear, nor am I heard by, the caller. Occasionally, the only way I can turn the phone off is by removing the back and the battery. Even "free", I cannot reccomend this phoneLess
Some Are LEMONS
Had the phone 3 month's until I got fed up with everyone's complaining that they could not hear me through all the static. I could hear them, they could not hear me. So to see for myself I called my cell from another phone and waved the cell around and sure enough it was a distorted mess of a signal. Some calls did not ring through as well and this is in the city where the signal is strong. Had to buy and $80 Samsung. Everything is fine now.Less
Excellent for a cheap phone
It has worked perfectly for me, never dropped a call. Easily worth the $50.Less
Junk phone at a cheap price
I've had this phone for 8 months. My wife and I both have monthly plans with Virgin. She has the Samsung m 510 which has great reception and call quality. The LG 160 constantly cuts out and drops calls. At home, my wife's Samsung has no issues with clarity and reception but the LG 160 has terrible sound quality and doesn't always ring when calls come in. It's not a network or tower issue as my wife's phone always works and our house is 500 metres and a clear line of site to the nearest Bell tower (who's network virgin uses). There is a reason this phone was so cheap. Avoid it at all costs. If you want a basic phone, go with a Samsung. Today it quit working altogether. Won't turn on or accept a charge.Less
One good one bad.
I've had two. One is still working flawlessly for over a year now. The second after three months the arrow keys and menu button have stopped working making texting impossible. So I would say 5/10. Its a simple basic phone that is cheap and if it werent for the faulty buttons I would say 8/10 but....Less
worst phone ever!!
ive had this phone for less than a year,and i absolutely hate it!!! now when i open it it squeeks and pratically falls apart,and ive only dropped it once..on carpet when people call me it'll ring twice and and then drop the call. like this morning my dad called me and i picked it up and answered and it had dropped the call!! then he said it had rung 5x on his end and 2x on mine!?!?! wth? i would never recommend this phone to anybody! its just a waste of your timeLess
Good basic phone
This is a great, easy to use, reliable phone. I have had one for over a year and it works fine, has no weak points or problems with it's design. It charges quickly and has good talk time and standby time. It will not take surround sound videos nor does it have touchscreen features. If you need a good cell phone for making phone calls and txt msgs then this is a good buy. No extra bells and whistles or fancy 'gee whiz' stuff.Less
