What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PHONE EVER! I absolutely love this phone! I wish they would start making it again! I've had this phone for over three years and I'd recommend it to everyone who wants an alternative to a flip phone. My phone is just starting to lose its ability to hold a charge for more than two days. I can't complain though! The phone is pretty old as far as technology goes! Love! Love! Love this phone! I wish this phone was still made!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Phone get's buggy over time I've had this phone for a couple of years. Was very durable and dependable but has started getting buggy. I minute it will connect to the blue-tooth in my car, the next time it doesn't. The other day, the alarm went off and it was no where near the time it was supposed to go off. Noticed later it was 8 hours and 3 years off on the time and date. Today, it would let me make calls but could send and receive text. Batteries don't seem to last long either, had to replace at least once a year it not more often. Love the slide-out keyboard. Very durable phone, have dropped it a couple of times in the past and has never broken.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good keyboard until it stops working I bought this phone in the end of 2010 after my sister broke my old phone. i was excited to have a full keyboard and it worked great for about 4 months until the keyboad stopped working. i took it back to the store and they fixed it. 3 months later the same thing happened and it was repaired again. after another month or two it got dropped in to a bath and after being put in a hot water cupboard for a while it worked again for about 2 months before the screen would randomly flip and go into negatives, requiring me to remove the battery and restart thephone. i haven't had it for about a year now and i kind of miss the proper keypad as it was great for texting but i love my iphone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little phone Worked great for a long time, very few problems. no major issues. As it nears the end of it's life the touch screen is jumpy and it will power off randomly. Served faithfully for 2 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy Jan I have had this phone for over a year and have continuously had downloading photos and video problems. One day it works and downloads the next it doesnt. I have tried everything in the book and besides but its so unreliable Im sick of it and look forward to getting another phone, dont think it will be LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and reliable Very good mobile. Its a bit out of date but still stands the test of time. Wish I could upgrade to a touch screen phone which has more capabilities etc. But for now its great

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing but for a short time honestly i love this phone, its so easy to use and so easy to be addicted to it. I love it when i txt w/the keyboard bc its easy, also using the touch screen when im feeling lazy or in school, its the perfect combination. the email and im is also unbelievable on this its so easy to use, and all the other apps and stuff they have. But.... calling someone you better hope you dont have to talk for more than about 20 minutes bc then the phone will die, its crazy how fast this phone dies, but just when your talking on the phone, if you text the whole day or go on the internet as well occasionally it will last the whole day or atleast your work or school day, that and a little glitch i get with my phone after i send a text message is my only problem with this, also that the screen can die out easily too
