It's a good paperweight
I got the LG Cosmos in early 2011. Being in middle school at the time, the phone served all of my needs - decent texting and such. It had - still has - a great battery life. Sometimes it lasts up to a week, even with heavy use. It's been dropped (and survived) so many times, it might as well have been a Nokia.
Over the past year, however, it's taken a nosedive. Its call quality is terrible. Half of the time I can't make out what my conversational partner is saying. Most of the keys (e, a, and n, especially) have become unreliable, either not responding, or overshooting and inserting about 10 of each letter in a text. Sometimes, it doesn't even receive calls. It's on, and so is the sound, but the calls go straight to voicemail. This happens in areas where both my phone and the person calling me have service. Finally, it's begun restarting repeatedly. Not only this, but it re-receives the last message received upon every restart. This continues until the phone runs out of memory. Two days ago, I sat staring at my phone for three hours while it had a seizure, and when it was finished, I had 85 copies of one text.
If you're looking for a stable phone that does what you need consistently, this ain't it.

This is the best phone I've used
I've had this phone for 3 years and it's still in good shape. It's showing some wear on it, but it's a good phone. I use my phone alot and several times, I've timed how long it is from the time I fully charge the phone until it dies and needs to be recharged, and it's consistantly around 113 hours. Any phone that can go 5 1/2 days on one charge is a good phone, even with a 3 year old battery. This phone is compact, will last a long time, and is a really nice phone.

Best phone I have ever had
I loved my env touch so when that stopped working I was really upset. But I found this nifty little phone on amazon and decided I would give it a try. I love this phone. It texts calls and is extremely durable. I would recommend this phone to anyone who just wants to talk and text.

Overall, a good, reliable phone
I had one of these for 1 1/2 years, and got a service message from my provider saying i was off my contract. I have now had it for about 4 months afterward because I enjoy the use of the phone. the only reason I might get a new one is because I was dumb enough to take it swimming with me, more likely to replace the shot battery and continue to use it though. Highly recommend this phone.
