Reviews (7/10 Avg. rating)
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
I've had this phone 2 WEEKS and I hate it with a passion already. A few nice things: 1. You can have up to 600 contacts. 2. The 2 mega pixel camera is very good. 3. You only need to charge it every 2-3 days. Now, unfortunately, the good things don't balance out the bad things. Bad things: 1. Even if you turn off autocorrect, it will STILL autocorrect. 2. Even if you completely turn off the volume, there will still be volume. 3. Some refuse to send pictures. 4. Sometimes it randomly sends blank messages. 5. You can't read messages more than 2 pages long, it just receives blank screens. 6. Bell or LG customer service will NOT help you if you report these problems. There are a lot of other smaller complaints but those are the big ones.Less

I've had this phone for 2 and a half years and still adore it! Personally, i never had any troubles with "phantom internet surfing" .. ever. And i never had any pocket pictures either. I think the quality is great, and i'm a super fast texter and this phone has always been great for me. Sometimes it takes half a second or so to catch up (but ive got speedy thumbs). Texting is made quick with the "txt" button. Just click and you're off ! Able to create secret numbers, groups, and a bunch of other very useful things ! Plus, the actual appearance is a great feature. Sadly though, after two and a half years, the battery is starting to die on me and its time for a new phone. I honestly wish i could just keep it.Less
Don't be fooled by appearances!
I've had this phone for almost 2 years and I have hated it since the 2nd day! I tried to return it, but Bell wouldn't take it back because I had used 15 min and 20 sec of talk time, and their limit is 15 min for returns! I bought the phone because it was super girly and came in purple. Unfortunatly that is about the extent of the good features of it. My biggest complaint about the phone is that it accesses the internet at random for a few seconds, or even minutes, at a time, all hours of the day. Like others, Bell has forced me to pay for these phantom surfings. I tried to have the internet disabled on the phone, but Bell told me it isn't possible, so as a result, I am paying for an internet package, which is only used when the phone decides to do a little surfing, to avoid the huge internet costs I was incurring (close to $40 per month!) My second complaint is that the phone often does not turn on properly. When you hold the power button to turn it on, it goes right to the home screen, skipping the Bell screen that you usually see on start up. When this happens there is no service and the phone freezes, so you have to remove the battery and start all over. This happens 8/10 times that I turn on the phone. The qwerty board is slow and your fingers often move faster than the phone can register it (I'm just an average texter), meaning that you have to go back and edit nearly every text. Also, it often tells you that the text you are sending has failed, so you resend it over and over until it goes through. However, every text has actually been sent and the person has recieved multiple copies of the same text. The call quality is ok, but many people complain that it sounds tinny or like I'm under water. This is more an issue with Bell accessories, than the phone, but the car charger breaks after only a few months! It looses connection and you have to set the phone down a certain way to ensure it is charging. I have been through 5 chargers in 2 years and need a new one right now! They also get so hot that it burns you when you unplug it! The side camera button is sensitive and takes many,many pocket pictures! Lots of people have said that the phone shuts itself down, mine has done this a few times, but I'm sure the longer I have it the worse it will get! I have many more complaints about the phone, but these are the major ones! In short this phone is a piece of junk and I am getting a new one tomorrow!!Less
Good texting phone
I've had this phone for about 6 months. I love texting with it, the only thing i dont like is having to flip it open because i text a lot. and its a little slow to keep up with my texting. liked the shape because i could text with one hand. not excellent but good picture quality. For what i paid for it, on ebay at 40$, i used it well. good first phone for teen girl...Less
I got this phone 3 months ago for very cheap on ebay, thinking i just needed a replacment phone as i had lost my old one, once i read the reviews i thought oh no whats this phone going to do. But i've only had minor problems some times it freezes if i shut down the internet to fast. I've had people compare it to a sandwich but i didn't care i like the square shape. I also like the carousel where you can add and remove tiles. It also has some cool ringers and backgrounds. Ive now bought a new phone hoping its like this one and not as bad as the reviews say.Less
Awful phone! Surfs the Net By Itself
This phone is a real dud! I've had it for over a year and it's been nothing but trouble. Two months after purchasing the phone, it started surfing the internet on its own - every hour on the hour for about 30-60 seconds. When I called Bell, they were very rude and told me that I would have to pay for the charges (which amounted to about $15). Sure, I could pay for it, but I didn' think that I should have to pay for it since I didn't use the Internet. Bell tried to say that I did and had to pay, even though I explained to the incompetent rep that the charges were due to the faulty phone they sold me. Who surfs the Internet for 30 seconds, 24 hours a day? Do they really think that I woud get up at 1am, 2am, 3am, etc. just to surf the Net for 30 seconds? When did I actually sleep? Also, I explained that I was a teacher, so would I really tell my grade 3 students to hold on for every hour or during lessons, just so I could pull out my phone and surf the Net for 30 seconds? Anyways, I sent it in for repairs twice and it still surfs the Net by itself, but only for about 6 hours a day. I will never buy another LG phone again!Less
Good Phone Crappy Service
The L G Reveal is a good phone. My wife and I both have one.I like the idea of the sd slot and the music player really cranks out. Texting is good the keyboard is very functional. One of the downfalls is the phone should have a sim card so you can get away from Bell. I think Bells service really sucks.Less
My previous phone crapped out on me so I went and got this a bit sooner than I was ready. Instead of paying the full price, I think I got it for about $180 and I locked in for another 3 years with Hell... I mean Bell. That was back in May 2009, it's now August 2010, which means out of warranty.Now it's shutting off on me at random. Doesn't matter if I'm reading/sending text, going into my contacts, my photos, even my settings. Doesn't matter if it's charged and/or plugged in, whenever it feels like shutting off, it will. Now I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place cuz I don't want to stay with Hell, but it's going to cost me $400 plus my remaining balance if I leave. I brought it in to Hell and they said that they can't fix it at the store level and have to send it off which is an upfront fee of $35. Plus, once they figure out what it is, then they come up with some ungodly amount to pay to have it fixed. Which is really just them trying to convince me to get a new phone. The dude at wireless wave said to not even bother with LG cuz all their phones are garbage. I'm now seeing why.Less
