Love this phone.
I really like this phone I still wish they made flip phones not one who uses all the fancy stuff on them now. But I'm actually looking into a new phone and it is another Lg. I have several appliances from them and I love them all. Really good products I hope thy stay that way. Thanks Lg for great products. i would recommend an Lg product over the other brands offered 10 to 1

I just wanted simple phone and have had this LG GS170 for several years...right now am experiencing getting another one as the screen went blank and my insurance says they don't cover it...TMobile no longer carries this model....I have a loaner that I hate (another brand) I don't want touch screen and all the fancy stuff.

For a basic phone this is great.
All I need is a basic phone and this one has always met my expectations, such as work when I need to use it.
Great phone for the cost!

Good basic phone
I've been using this phone for the past 3 months and the issues mentioned by other reviewers haven't been an issue for me. Regarding texting, the * key, as one reviewer mentioned, is how to toggle through the different T9 words. Regarding the alerts when messages are received, I always get a beep although it's a bit quiet even after turning the volume to high. Some minor issues involve the very fragile and tiny plastic panel that covers the connector for charging the phone. Another LG user I know snapped this panel off but says it's not been a problem leaving the connection exposed. However, this panel perhaps should've been made of rubber . Another minor annoyance is the somewhat difficult to open cover, i.e., trying to grip the outside to open this flip phone. When the phone is folded closed, the outside is smooth and somewhat hard to grasp so I have to use my fingernails when trying to open it. Overall, good basic phone.
