What People Are Saying

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

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This phone is very unreliable when calling. When I call people there is an echo on my side and it constantly drops calls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impossible to kill I've had all three Cosmos, although I recently upgraded to a G4, and I must say, they are great little robust phones. I've actually attempted to purposely kill this phone on multiple occasions, doing things such as throwing it across the room when I got mad, dropping it countless times, running it in a thermal chamber from -50c to 100c, vibrating it on a vibe table, and it just kept chugging along (Only thing I didn't do was drop it in the toilet). The only real qualms I have are that this phone is way too basic for a 25 year old guy with an active social life, and compared to the first Cosmos, the keyboard is a little lackluster. If you're looking for a good, cheap (Free with plan), simple rugged phone with a full keyboard, this is the phone to have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Some Problems Good phone except that it cuts out during talk and you can't hear on it some times.
