Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE!Ads! Can't ans calls/enter digits in call I HATE this phone! Ads continuously pop up in middle of a bank call and I cannot continue entering digits for acct info! Ads pop up and I can't answer a call! Ads constantly popping up and covering screen when online, with no way to get rid of them! Worst phone I've ever had. It switches the volume off by itself and I miss calls. It doesn't notify me of new texts for hours and sometimes days! Am using Cricket Cell service. God-awful! Can never reach customer service/tech support and when I am lucky enough to get a tech after being on hold for over a half hour, tech can never fix issue. Miserable phone and cell service company. Had to return first phone for fix; they gave me wrong instructions and wrong place to go; then new phone came and got half a phone. Ads have been much worse since I finally got the whole new phone. The price is cheap but it isn't worth the constant headaches and aggravation. Plus the battery life is a few hours of use! Looking for a reliable phone and carrier as we speak...this is truly awful!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't play videos and speaker doesn't work I got this as a Christmas gift about a year ago and it worked fine just about until today, today I was watching YouTube and all of a sudden youtube crashed and closed, so I tried to reopen it, YouTube opened so I tried to open one of the videos on my recommended list, the video started loading but it could not open the video and told me to try again later so I did I waited about 5 minutes and the same thing happened, after that happened I went to my downloaded and tapped on one of the videos I downloaded, it loaded for a second and then said it could not play the video, I also tried playing my music that was on google play but Google could not play music on my phone, I'm not sure if I messed up phone somehow or if this is a reoccurring problem for people who own/owned the LG riso 2
