Fantastic Basic Phone
What stops it from being ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS, just as the three drop dead gorgeous VX 8700s I had before it, is LG's REFUSAL to allow access to voice command, through a bluetooth device, with the flip closed. As a truck driver it is illegal for me to dial from the handset, and I prefer to keep my phone in my pocket at all times while driving. I can still answer calls and the bluetooth performance is otherwise flawless. A unique feature I'd like to see, is having the ringtones play through my headset, as I use them for caller ID. It is hard to hear them while driving. I love the custom settings on the alarm clock feature, a first for any phone I've had. Pictures sized properly for the phone look great on it, but removing the battery to get to the memory card is still a hassle. I guess there is a price to be paid for the slim design. Did I mention this phone is BEAUTIFUL to look at?

This Flip-pnone is fantastic!
No one in my family does texting or internet on our phones so it is getting harder & harder to get just "phone". While I know this phone has the capability of texting & internet, we don't use it for that. The phone has great volume & big text on the display. My husband & I both got ours @ the same time & his phone did have much greater battery life, but after going to Verizon & getting a new battery in my phone, all seems to be good. My hubs has used his phone for a few pics & they are awesome :)

Best Phone Ever!!!
I WANTED A GOOD BASIC PHONE. ONE THAT WAS NOT COVERED ON THE EXTERIOR WITH BUTTONS THAT WHEN TRYING TO ANSWER A CALL YOU HANG UP OR TAKE A PICTURE, ETC. JUST A PHONE TO TALK AND TEXT WITHOUT ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES.
THIS IS THE PHONE FOR ME. GREAT PRODUCT AND NO COMPLAINTS...

Can't get Backup Assistant to work, Bluetooth prob
This phone would most likely get all 'Five Stars' if it weren't for two issues. 1- I tried two phones, worked with Verizon on-line and in person and none of use could get Backup Assistant to work. The second phone is going back. 2- I could live with this and didn't get this far to try it- I understand that the phone must be left open for Bluetooth to stay connected. Get this phone to work like my six year old Chocolate 3 and gets all five stars and a recommendation easy!
