Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for Worked fine for the first couple months then started to slow down dramatically. It stopped receiving messages a month or two back and did it infrequently, now it does it almost everyday. Very annoying when making plans or trying to carry on any sort of conversation. Would not recommend to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good but.... Overall not a bad phone. I bought An L7 but got it wet and killed it so a friend sold me this one. Right away I missed the much better graphics and scratch resistant screen on the L7. The graphics on this phone is very poor in comparison.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible this is the worst phone I've ever owned. half the time the keyboard doesn't work, it always shuts off by itself. and now the "T" on the keyboard isn't working. the picture quality is really bad. I would rate this phone less than a star if I could.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok... I love my phone but it continuously shuts apps down and stops receiving text messages randomly. It's a good phone but I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from JUST OK I don't know if it's the carrier BOOSTor what but like the other view said, freezes, crashes, etc. etc. How bout this one..I'm using the GPS and it stops working!! I paid cash for this phone and I am slightly disappointed and stuck with the phone. Who would I sell it to knowing what I know. If it WOULD OPERATE AT 100%, I would be happpier. I can't even recommend it to anyone. If LG NEEDS TO SEND UPDATES FOR THIS PHONE, HURRY UP!
