Worst phone Ive ever owned
I bought the LG Beacon because I was looking for an inexpensive qwerty keyboard phone, and it looked cute and convenient. I guess you get what you pay for.
The phone constantly freezes when receiving picture messages, which can only be fixed by removing the battery. Messages disappear randomly, it freezes if it locks while on the internet, and the buttons type themselves out 3 or 4 times when you press them once.
Ive owned this phone the least amount of time compared to my previous ones, and its deteriorated in quality twice as fast. I would never recommend this to anyone.

You get what you pay for
Being on a limited income I opted to purchase the LG Beacon because it appeared to have the most features compared to the other non-smartphone selections of Metro PCS; not to mention it was a familiar name brand. I purchased four phones and they all have the exact same problems. The phone powers cycles in the middle of a lengthy text message, the screen locks intermittedly, and text messages randomly dissappears from the history. I've had a couple of them replaced under the 1 year warranty and the problem persists, letting me know it's a glitch with the handset model and not an isolated with the four phones that I purchased.

This phone is not user friendly at all
Bummer to buy a new phone and not like much of anything about it. Some of the main screen options takes a while to even know they are there, and the way you find out is by accidently touching it just right and then you can't figure out what you did to get it and then its gone. Yes I looked in the manual no help there... Just to much negative not worth it.

I love this phone it works great why so many bad reviews my only con is the difficulty to put in music and how it freezes sometimes.
