Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! Bought this little LG phone when I was in Corner Brook, N.L. on the 31st of Aug.........So far, this phone has been great. Lots of great features and user friendly. I especially love the great pay as you go packages that Kodoo has to offer. Overall, this is a great phone and a must for first time touch screen users!!
