What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good phone Bought it for my wife. She has had it a week and we have had no problems with it. She loves it. Good choice for people who don't want a smartphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic phone Does what its suppose to. People on here rating it bad and complaining about the picture quality/speaker quality.......you do realize this is a BASIC phone right?? Having problems with it dialing/texting on its own? Lock it with a password....I always have and never ounce has it dialed or texted on its own, learn you're phone people. This phone is perfect if you don't want to get stiffed with these outrageous must have data plans to have a smart phone. Calls are great, texting is great, perfect phone for a basic phone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Phone! Phone turns on by itself and makes calls and sends texts. Verizon says I should remove the battery and replace it only when I want to make a call or send a text and wait for a software update from LG. Very impractical! LG says there is no such update coming. So I have a phone I can barely use and must wait almost a year to replace.

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.
