What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse phone I've ever owned I've had this phone for less than six months and already it has problems texting. Buttons are too small for my fingers and I'm constantly hitting two keys at once. I know options for the handful of us out there that do not want a smart phone, but I highly recommend you do NOT purchase this model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow I've had this phone for a couple months now. I have had a lot of LG slide or flip phones (never a smart phone) but this is the one I like the least. The slide out keyboard is the reason I picked it, but the buttons are very small and hard to get used to. The real problem is how slow it is! I do quite a lot of texting and the delay when you are typing is ridiculous. I will be through the sentence typing and the phone is still thinking about the first word. It is also very slow to scroll through the texts and the memory capacity for storing them it tiny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Phone.... Grade A It is a good phone. It lacks space to do group messaging. It is good for calls. It does not connect to LG Suite. LG does not have the USB modem driver to use the data features of a phone plan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Retro Phone I had this phone before in the 2004-2005 with same carrier. I was not expecting to go back to it, but I am happy did get it. It was functional and worked as expected. It gets low on memory when too many text messages. I am disappointed the LG software or phone carrier software does not allow to connect to data network via USB or bluetooth tethering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good long as you don't use group texts If you want a basic phone, this little guy will get the job done most of the time. It's compact, it has good battery life, clear audio, and easy texting with the slide-out keyboard. However, after having it for just a few days, I will return it. Why? There are two major problems that make this phone just about useless to me. 1) This phone can't properly handle incoming group texts. Although you can send texts to multiple people, when a group text is sent to you there is no indication that it is a group text, you can't see who else the message was sent to, and all of your replies go only to the sender instead of the group. If you're somebody who fields texts from multiple people often as I do, this phone will not work for you. 2) The internet browser on this phone cannot access any google pages because it doesn't have the proper security certificates. So you cannot access Gmail, Google calendar, you can't even access the Google home page! If you don't plan to use the browser this won't be a problem at all, but for me this is incredibly frustrating. I was hoping to have this phone for the next few years, since other review say that it's pretty indestructible. But unfortunately need to exchange it. It's really too bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money It's very slow, doesn't download music, won't update, and sometimes can't receive multimedia messages.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT Waste Money on this Junk! My 3rd Cosmos is dying now...the third in three years unless you want to be tied to a two year plan, but only have a phone for a year. My contract is up in July...see ya Verizon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great while it lasted I bought this exactly 1 year and 13 days ago and now apparently have to throw it away. Yesterday without warning the screen scrambled and then went blank. I took the battery out hoping that would fix it but it did not. I went to Verizon today and they tell me that because it is 13 DAYS out of warranty there is nothing they can do. I have always loved LG phones. That is practically all I have owned for the last 15 years but this one is a dud. I really liked the keyboard and the battery life but I guess it is like most things these days... DISPOSABLE
