What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OMG This Phone Is Terrible Let's see... phone has shut down on me twice while using the calculator function, actually had to remove and replace the battery before I could turn it on again. Tried getting pictures off of the phone, that didn't work. First tried connecting to PC via USB cable, but that requires a memory card, which I didn't have installed in the phone (the one microSD card I have is for my B&N Nook). Pulled the memory card from the Nook and put it in the phone, but when I tried to transfer files to the memory card, I got a transfer failed message written in very poor English. Tried to transfer the photos to my Nook via Bluetooth, but the Bluetooth connection fails. (I was able to do this once, back when I first got the phone, so the devices were still paired.) Also couldn't add a Bluetooth headset, had to return that to the store. Overall just a terrible phone. I've tried waiting out the two years til I can upgrade for free, but now I'm just ready to pay for a phone myself and be done with this thing. (And I still can't get the photos off my phone, and I NEED those for work! Very frustrated!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Software Freezes Phone I have had a couple negative experiences with this phone. I'm on my 2nd LG Rumor, and the 2nd version of the LG Rumor S. 1. When I bought the phone I was told it would have email capabilities, and did for a couple months, when it suddenly stopped working. I visited 4 different stores before getting a clear story on why it stopped working. (This may be a Sprint, and not an LG problem) 2. The screen freezes. Apparently there was a software update that causes the power up screen to repeat it self. There is no available fix aside from returning the phone. Fortunately my phone was still under the 1 year warranty and I was given a new phone. Less than 4 months later the same problem happened again. The Sprint Store Manager told me that LG was aware of this error, but that it hadn't been fixed yet. Owning this product has been frustrating and a waste of my time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy this phone! The LG Rumor Reflex has an average lifespan of 8 months. Within the first year this phone will go into a "boot loop" which means it will never again boot up or turn on completely. All data will be lost and the phone can never again be used. Do NOT buy this phone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why not to get this phone. Well, when I got this phone I was really happy because it seemed like a good phone. After two months, the buttons ( home button, back button, call button ) stopped working every now and then. The battery life started draining a lot faster than normal, and I hardly used it, when I dropped it ONE TIME, the thing literally broke in half, hanging by only the cable. It also started to turn off when I was using it, when it had full battery life left. The rumor reflex overall, is the worst phone I have ever owned, and I would never in a million years, recommend this phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Phone doesn't work after only 5 months of lite use I have used an old "flip phone" for years now. It just won't die. But it is inconvenient for texting. So I figured I'd update. The touch screen on the Rumor is not sensitive to touch, must try numerous times to unlock screen. The buttons on the keyboard are too small. I have small hands and it's hard to press only one button. The 'space' button started working only part time after about 2 months. I send fewer than 150 texts per month. I just switched my phone number back to my old phone because it was so hard to use and started using the Rumor for a line I use only for voice calls. Now the phone won't hang up, can't access the home screen, etc. It doesn't work!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrilble Phone doesnt deserve a rating at all. Bought 2 the same day. 1 stopped working 18 daysafter we got them, and the other exactly 1month from the purchased date. What a big freaking hassle this whole ordeal has been. Other comments on this page very true too.
