What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from longest lasting phone I have every had I do irrigation repair and get wet and muddy from head to toe. Never had a phone that lasted over 3 months until I got one of these. Lasted 2 years. Shortest time one lasted was 1 year. I left it in my pants and washed them both. Screen doesn't work any more so I am looking for another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone with a feature that makes texting easy This is a great phone, with a feature that can make texting so much easier once you understand what it is doing. Yes, at first I had no idea what it was doing when I tried to text, so I too (like a previous reviewer) was trying to turn it off. But as I did I accidently TURNED ON the "T9 word candidate list" and then tried it. And with that feature on I understood what it was doing. It was expecting me to tap each key ONE TIME FOR EACH LETTER and then it would figure out the word I was entering. With the 'word candidate list" it gave me a list of possible words from that combination of keys in that order. And as it did it a while I realized that 95% of the time the first word on the list was the right one, so then if I enter a space ('0' key) it accepedt the word and I would keep on typing. Once you understand how to do it, it makes texting so much faster. It is like having a full slider keyboard phone, because you just tap each key one time for each letter. This is such a blessing to me and I'm so thankful that I 'accidentally' turned on the word candidate thing. I think it was a God ordained mistake. Anyway, this is not spell checking as I and the previous reviewer thought at first. It is called 'T9 text entry mode' and if you want to do it the old way you can simply tap the 'Options' soft key button as you are entering a text and select 'Text Entry Mode' then select "Abc" rather than 'T9 Abc', and you are back in the slow way to do it. BUT I recommend that you instead tap the 'Options' soft key button as you are entering a text and then select 'Text Entry Setting' and then select 'T9 word Candidate List' and then select 'On'. Then try it. Once you understand what it is doing and get used to it, I think you will really like it too and never, never go back to the old way. It is really so much faster and so much easier. Happy Texting!!!! Also It use 3G to get a better signal. the camera is cool. I like the 'clr' button to clear a mistyped number or to go back a screen. I like the programmable arrow keys to make getting to features quicker. It is a good phone in many ways!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best flip phone ever I love this LG flip phone because of it's ease to use. Easy view screen, easy touch numbers, the style is so sleek, what else can I say without going over board. To date I've never had a phone so easy to use and so self explanatory by the menu, I'm very impressed Indeed. Thank you LGF for making a phone the way it should be.
