What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Sound Quality I've been using this for about 6 months now and regret having bought it. Software i slow, internet connection and functionality the worst I've experienced in a feature phone. Screen resolution seems low, colors so intense they look cartoonish, like intense crayon colors. Touchscreen on one hand seems overly sensitive but on the other sometimes isn't all that precisely responsive. Worst is audio quality; haven't made a call yet where I'm not asked to repeat or told I'm barely heard and it's the same for me listening. Slide out keyboard isn't nearly as useable as the previous slider I had. I've had too amny cell phones over time, and this is the absolute worst. It was the first LG phone I've had and it'll be the last; couldn't be more disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Phone I have had 2 of these phones and not for very long time period either. Both of them have had an issue with the screen, I was in the middle of a text today when the screen turned white. It still functins fine but I can't see what I'm doing. Luckily, I'm very familiar with it so I can sorta navigate through it but I have had 4 other LG basic phone and thi has happened to all of them. I do not recommend buying LG basic phones. I have not had any experience with their smartphones so I can;t say anything about them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you don't want a smartphone! I just use it for texting and calling and it has worked out great. I get a little annoyed that you can't send a text while taking a call, and the camera could be better, but overall a nice, easy phone to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no option to send your caller id or not you have to remember to dial *67 if you do not want to send your number. A dinosaur.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Keyboard Hard to Use My daughter and I both upgraded to this phone about four months ago. At the time, she said that the keyboard on my phone was much easier to use than on hers, and it was true--her keys were harder to press. Well, I dropped my phone last week and when I tried to text, I realized the problem. Dropping my phone had shifted the keyboard so it was no longer firmly snapped into the letter openings. I think that my daughter's phone came to her like that. The keys are extremely difficult to press and are almost flush with the casing; you almost need a stylus to type. We just returned from the Verizon store and they are not able to do anything for us, although the Verizon associate did agree that typing on both our phones was very difficult. We have 17 painful months left on our contract with these phones and will try to do as little texting as possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GLITCHY AFTER 11 MONTHS I bought this phone a year ago and it stops working after 11 months. In August, I was in the middle of texting when all of a sudden there were lines all over the screen. I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in (because the phone doesn't reset when you want it to) but there were still lines. I dismissed them because they were transparent and didn't get in the way of things. A few weeks later my phone started acting really slow. I magically got it to reset, but it was still slow when it turned back on. Okay, great. A month later (early this September) it kept on restarting itself every time I turned it on. It's probably making up all the times it didn't wanna reset. Then just earlier today I was texting and it froze. I took out the battery and put it back in and the touch screen stopped working. It won't reset, the lines are still there, I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in but it still won't let me touch it. Now I have to navigate with the keyboard but I can only do limited things.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Phone does not ring in half the time Phone does not work half the time. I like the keyboard, but sometimes calls do not come through. LG!!! Please give us basic phone users a GOOD PHONE to use!!! Being older and on a fixed budget I cannot afford a smartphone plan. You have to pay TOO MUCH a month for it!! I dont need all those bells and whistles! SO ONCE AGAIN!!!! PLEASE PLEASE!!! Give us basic phone users a phone that works for calling and texting. A better megapixel camera would be good too!
