Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Product! I had this phone for 2 years NEVER gave me any problems except for the usual phone stuff,(restarting after too much activty) but overall i recomend this product for peoplle who dont want to pay an outrageous price for the "fanciest" phone, but that want an acceptable phone for working and texting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Seems nice until... Seems nice until the space issue becomes apparent. You can transfer very little to the SD card, cannot remove apps preloaded, and locks up and won't allow you to receive or send texts once it 'fills up'. You can delete everything possible off the phone once it starts doing this, and it still won't clear the memory. And now the charging/data dock has gone bad, have found out this is a very common problem. May 10, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Could be a great phone, but... Don't get me wrong, I like the majority of things on this phone, and it's very user friendly. But there are 2 things I can't stand about it, that make me wish I hadn't bought it. 1> Some prepackaged apps that come with it can't be uninstalled. For example, I have installed FaceBook for Android (because it runs better), and it still wont let me uninstall FaceBook for LG. which brings me to my main gripe... 2> Not enough internal memory space!!! After installing like 4 apps, it says my memory is running low, and starts rejecting (not holding) all my text. I can't even SEND a text until the space issue is resolved. It starts doing this when you have about 10MB left. And you would think that adding a huge 8GB sd memory card would help, but no. There are only a few apps that can be transferred to the external memory. MAJOR flaw on LG's part with that design. My 'smartphone' has a very small brain =X August 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Still new @ touch screens Just a new owner of a touch screen phone. Still trying to see the potential of the phone. Want to know more of the phone so that I truly use it for everything it has. Nothing different then a computer/laptop. Kinda of disappointed that it wont download FlashPlayer. December 10, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by somewhat this phone is cool for awhile then it starts to lockup and reboot half the time im really starting to hate this phone thinking about going to sprint November 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Phone I love this phone. It works great for everything i wanted to do. Only bad thing i would say is size of screen. I would like it bigger. The phone is still great fast and funtionable. September 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Phone, Wonderful and Outstanding Service, LG is now joined with Cricket! June 15, 2011
