What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite phone! Had this phone for 4 years and loved it the whole time. There were no more software updates so i was forced to buy another. Unfortunately the v20 is terrible and I am now researching other brands because it has only been a year and it has been a pretty bad phone. Wish they'd bring back the Optimus and all that makes it so awesome, I'm not sure I trust LG quality anymore though:(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why am I having sooooo many problems ????? I brought my phone in 2014 and in the last 3 weeks it has completely been a terror. The battery gets hot, my apps wont' work, other functions will not work, I tried to update the software and it says it is up to date but the last update was October 2015???? I must say that I don't use a lot of space on my phone. I don't take a lot of pictures, apps on my desktop etc. Is it because it is now a discontinued model?????? I will not be purchasing another LG phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from At an impass with this phone I bought this LG e980i since it was unlocked supposedly by AT&T so that I could upgrade my phone with my wireless carrier, Tracfone. I was able to activate the phone and get it to be both wireless and data capable. However, I could not get it to accept mms or pictures. I found I could if I did some other adjustments that seemed out of my paygrade. I asked my carrier and they said that they did all that they could and it was probably the phone. I asked the manufacturer and I was told it was up to my carrier. So in other words I need to switch my carrier to AT&T or try the more complicated procedure to get this phone to accept mms and pictures. As for the features, it does offer a lot especially if I switch carriers. The battery suck, literally. If I use it during the day as normal it drains the battery to nearly nothing before the end of the day. I ordered another battery and battery charger to carry should I decide to keep this phone. This feature makes all the other features near useless if I use it them too often. If this phone had only accepted mms and photos I imagine I would be writing a very different review right now.

Is the LG Optimus G Pro HD voice compatible?

Asked by: customer12345679
​Hello there customer12345679, Thank you for your interest in the LG Optimus G Pro, I’ll be happy to help! I have researched the LG and found no mention that it is HD voice compatible. The device was released back in 2013, prior to HD voice being launched. Check out https://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/smartphones.html to view all the HD voice compatible devices that AT&T currently offers. Hope this helps! Rocco, AT&T Community Specialist
