Rated 3 out of 5 by Jade Internal Memory Issues AND Group Text Issues
The other reviews seem to explain the internal memory problem of the phone but I've experienced even worse. I have a 32GB SD card in my phone and I've done everything to attempt to save files to it but the device still won't allow me to save files to the card. I'm still having to use the least amount of apps possible though I need various messaging apps to communicate with my colleagues.
So, speaking of messaging, whenever I send group texts, responses don't show up within the same conversation; they show up from the individual contact. This makes it very difficult to follow the progression of the conversation, so when I need to message the group again, I have to go back to the conversation of origin, but if I wasn't the one who sent the first text it's a guessing game. I have no way of describing this problem to find a solution online, but this has always been an issue with the phone -I've had this model phone for a few years on and off now- but it's become more and more prevalent as my involvement with various groups grows. I recommend this phone for teens, as I had it when I was a teenager and it served me well, but I definitely don't recommend it for adults who need to use it for business communication purposes.

Rated 2 out of 5 Extremely frustrating
I was new to smart phones so I wanted something that was user friendly. This phone worked great for the first 4 months. I don't really use apps but I ran out of space very quickly. The worse thing about this product is that I have to constantly restart it. The icons sometimes don't appear on the screen. The keyboard doesn't pop up when I want to text, even after restarting it a few times. The call quality isn't very good either. Its difficult to hear the person on the other end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chuck Not bad if your new to smart phones
Its not a bad phone at all. Had a storage issue. The phone dose not have a lot of storage if you like apps and games. But after I rooted the phone and added an app that allowed me to link all my apps to the micro sd card...that solved that. No other issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul Has received more flak than it really deserves
This is a wonderful phone just so long as you know how to manage space and RAM use. The device does have a limited amount of space but not so limited that you can't download big programs or anything. I don't usually have issues with space though it has come up which is easily fixed by cleaning old apps and junk files. Along with that the phone is also relatively fast. Quick to start up, open apps, and read SD card. The camera on it is also very good. Overall, if I were to win this phone as a prize, it would be 5 stars but because its price is so high I need to knock it down some because it is limited on app capability, again space, and features that are just a little outdated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Doctari It's not bad just don't download anything.
I got this phone after having the LG Optimus Elite, which I thought was a good phone but that one kept overheating. This one looked great at the store on display (don't they all) and although I read the internal memory spec I thought I would be able to work with it. Well that soon proved to be difficult as it filled up pretty much immediately. I end up swapping out apps when I need to use them now. It has also started locking up on me while viewing Facebook and the wifi works sporadically. Definitely getting something else soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alex could be way better
I've had this phone for some time now and I really want a different phone. It has nearly no memory at all so I can't hardly get any apps and when I do delete one and then download a different one or redownload it it says insufficient memory and since u can put any on an SD card that's all u get and after a small 2 ft. Drop to some small rocks the entire screen is shattered. U can't text to many people at once with out having this weird message thing pop up on Ur screen and overall I just want a different phone.

I have quite a few problems with this phone:
The base memory of the phone is inadequate. You can add a memory card, but the core memory is only 1 Gb.
The Android OS does not allow you to move applications-making it impossible to download more than one or two applications (see the point above about lack of memory).
The network connectivity is unstable at the best of times. I am constantly dropping my connection. Granted, it's Sprint, but even in areas where Sprint ahs coverage, I can move 5 feet away and lose all my network connectivity.
The phone has lately been getting VERY hot-I think while trying to find a network.
The battery llife diminishes over time. After 6 months, my original battery goes from full charge to discharge in 2 days-it was lasting 4 1/2 days when it was new.
Call quality is NON-EXISTENT. I have to tell people to text me, I cannot hear anything on the LG phone.
Bottom line, this "phone" is a joke. You're better off with an old flip style phone.
