What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacking features!! I have had this phone for 4 days.. I don't like lg phones but my husband bought it for me so giving it a try... I don't know if its just Verizon phones but if you have a pin or password to get in your phone it factory resets your phone after 10 failed attempts at entering the password or pin... why???? ,y kids or my husband could enter wrong and I lose everything!! Most Verizon phones have a simple fix to that... they have a setting to turn it off so that doesn't happen.. but this phone does not have that feature!!! This lg lasted 4 days in my home...don't recommend just for that reason!!!!
