"I chose this phone primarily for its flip keyboard. I couldn't text with the regular keypad. I did need to exchange the first phone because of an echoing problem heard by those I called. The replacement has been great. I find it easy to use and texting has become second nature. The numbers are large enough to see with my less than 20/20 vision!"

"I have loved all LG phones that I have had in the past. However, this phone really has me wishing that I hadn't bought it. I have been waiting it out until I can upgrade. The first time I called someone on it, they said that I sounded like I was talking into a barrel. I was really echoy. I spent a large portion of my time trying to figure out how to fix that, including calling into Verizon. I played around with the settings until we finally figured out a way to make it sound better. The second issue that I have had is that I am notorious for having massive amounts of texts in my inbox. If the mailbox is full it doesn't save texts that come in until you clean out your mailbox, like the other LG phones I have had. Yes this is all my fault however I was used to the other phone where all I had to do was clean it out and then I could still get the text. So now I have to try and guess who may have sent me a text if my mailbox becomes too full. That bothers me the most about the phone. Other than that the battery life seems to be pretty good. I was only looking for a phone that I can text and make calls with."
