I'v had my LG since December 2007 and its still going strong. It's the longest I'v ever had a phone that survived. Its really durable, I dropped it a fair bit of times and the outside screen is very hard to wreck or scratch. Overall, I love this phone and I am not yet tired of it. There is nothing really annoying about the phone except sometimes it takes alot longer than it should to exit an application and I'm not to fond of the music application. Other than that the only problems I'v had with it were Rogers fault (suprise surpise). Less

I have had this phone for ten months, and it is officially out of commission. While I had it, it was a great phone - easy to use, good battery life, texting and calling were easy, the camera is ok..etc. But after about 9 months, i heard a clicking sound every time I opened and closed the phone. I called rogers and the warranty apparently expires after the first 30 days, so they were unwilling to repair or replace the phone. only a couple weeks after that, the left hinge broke so that the top part of the phone was only being secured by the right hinge (clearly that was what the clicking sound was from...). It was only a matter of days after that that the right hinge broke and the top part of the phone completely disconnected from the bottom. I use my phone often so I know it got a lot of use, however my phone was almost always in a case and was in overall good condition. Less
